Shawn's 1st Summer Buzz!

Well, it's that time of year again for the boys to get a buzz. Shawn's old enough to get one this year, but we were a little hesitant about the whole thing. His head has always been a little misshapen, and we were worried that having "no hair" would emphasize this fact. But after thinking it through, we decided that this year, when he's only two years old, would be the best time to give it a shot. We could then decide if we ever wanted to do it again. So off to the bar stools outside, in the sunshine and breeze where the hair would easily blow away, we started with a "before shot" for memory sake.

And away it went!

It didn't take long for the tears to flow. I've always had a knack for drawing tears when it comes to hair cuts. It's a good thing I don't cut hair professionally.

After many distractions like dancing from Katy, singing from Mom, and jokes from Dad, it was done and man is he handsome.
Katy couldn't wait to pose with her brother's new look.

It's so fun to bring the boys in right after a new hair cut and let them see the results. There's nothing like their first reaction in the mirror. Shawn was pretty excited about his new cut. And it looks so good, we're sure to do it again and again. Everyone we see asks if they can feel it. Shawn promptly tells them "yes" and then says, "a buzz".
