I just love my boys' curly hair! Jeremy had his first haircut (with us) shortly after he came home, and then I let it grow for the next 8-9 months, just because I wanted to see how it would look. Well, his curls are looser, so rather than stand straight out in a cute 'fro-y sort of way, they just looked pretty. After being asked by an Eritrean man if he was a girl, I decided it was time to take action.

So off to the hair dresser we went. He sat on my lap during his hair cut. Here he is before with his hair all picked out:

And here he is handsome boy! :

Jeremy's hair grows really fast, and he likes getting haircuts, too. So the next time he asked me for a hair cut, I decided to do it myself! (I was emboldened by this post...Go Team Buster!)

Thanks to his curly hair, if my cut isn't precision, it's very forgiving! Here he is before Mama cut it:

And after! :

And finally.... Zachary's first haircut! I'd been waiting as long as I could to cut it, but it was getting too matted in the back, and well...poofy if I didn't wet it every day! Here he is before, with his hair all picked out. Yea for baby Afros:

 Look how long his hair was!

Getting ready to make the first cut:

And after the haircut with Daddy:

It's always a little shocking how much more grown up they look right after a haircut!

Zachary's first haircut! I saved all these curls in a ziplock baggie!

Such adorable pictures! I found Maya's first haircut hair the other day...I think she was 2, because she was bald for a LONG time. As was I. I love the pictures, and I think you did a great job!
