Amery's First Haircut

This afternoon we made a trip to Pigtails & Crewcuts for Amery's first cut. It was a lot of fun. I definitely recommend this place for kids' haircuts. They have locations all over the country - even Honolulu. At the Austin location they have chairs shaped like a firetruck, a plane, and a police car. There's a train table to play with while you're waiting your turn, Disney movies playing on big flat screen TVs at each chair, a place for birthday parties in the back room, all the animal crackers you want, and you get to choose a prize (or three) from the treasure chest on your way out.

Here's a "before" picture on the way there. He constantly had to push his hair out of his eyes, and mama got a "she's cute" comment the other day. Yeah, time for a little boy cut.

We think he questioned our judgment a bit when his stylist showed up with pink and blue hair. She was very nice and clearly very talented when it came to cutting the hair of a wiggly toddler. I forgot her name so we need to call back and get her every time. We loved her!

He actually sat pretty still. Most of the time.

Full view of the cool police car chair.
And after. He looks like a big [little] boy! Mama misses the curls in back, but they'll grow back soon enough.

Quick Update

Sorry for the lack of blogging. We've been all kinds of busy and we're still dealing with the never-ending ear infection. Throw in a couple of lower molars and you have one grumpy kid and two tired parents. Speaking of ears, Amery's pediatrician referred us to a pediatric ear, nose, and throat specialist whom we will meet on Friday afternoon. I suspect ear tubes are in his future. I found a pretty good article on the ear tube surgery procedure if you'd like to see what our little man is in for.

He's not without a few smiles here and there:
