The Most Sentimental Cut of All

Just rolling along here, trying desperately to keep up with a little boy who is growing too fast for my heart...

Today we took Miles to the barbershop to get his very first haircut. Hard to believe that a kid wouldn't need a haircut for two years, unless of course you have seen him or his photos and the baldness that prevailed for that first year! Casey goes to Don & Dale's every few weeks for a trim, and so we thought we'd take Miles there as well and have Dale give him a classy 'do. Ever the record-keeping Mama, I was armed with video and still camera to capture this once-in-a-lifetime event...and I will confess without shame that I came very close to shedding tears. My eyes welled up a good bit, but I was able to blink the tears back and laugh it off, although it made me feel better when Dale said it was understandable. I like Dale.


Miles was pretty wary of Dale the whole time

But Casey distracted him with peanuts...

...for the most part, anyway!

See me in the mirror? I was smiling!

Can anyone say 'twinkies'?

Miles getting to play with the brush

But not liking it when it was Dale's turn!

After (mug shot style!)
