We let his hair grow for about 2 years. We did take him to Cool Cuts and get a trim. I blogged about it awhile ago. Click here if you want to read that post. As time went on, his hair grew back out. The length and look of his hair started to bother me and I starting thinking that it didn't look right. Some days it would look good to me and other days I just didn't like it. The days of me not liking it started to become more and more. Occasionally, Jeremy would mention trimming his hair. Jeremy looked on-line to find little boy haircuts so we could show the beautician what kind of haircut we wanted. I think we were afraid of messing up Seven's beautiful blonde hair. We didn't want to make him look dorky. One Saturday, I told Jeremy, "Seven's hair is starting to bother me more and more." That evening, Granny Joyce came over with her haircutting scissors and a tranquilizer (Barney movie) to keep Seven still while she cut his hair. Seven loves Barney! No, Seven is obsessed with Barney. We can all thank Granny Joyce for that. But this time, it was a good thing.
A front shot, before the haircut.
This was intended to be a side shot, but Seven decided to look at the camera.
The back of Seven's new haircut...much, much shorter!
The only thing that Seven's haircut changed about him is his look. Let me assure you, he is still Seven! For those of you who know him really well, I think you understand what I am saying. He is still the funniest kid I know!
