Emory's First Hair Cut

So dapper

We have been talking about cutting this little one's hair for a few weeks now. I have been hesitant because I just loved his baby fine-soft hair. There was so much of it I couldn't bear to see it snipped off. Well, a few days ago I decided it was time, and I am so glad we did. He looks like such a little man! Where did my baby go?

We decided to go with the home-grown hair cut style a-la dad. We viewed a few videos by YouTube and then went for it. The event was overall not too traumatic(for mama or baby), and I am just adoring this little wee man who has appeared. Now what to do with all those baby curls we cut off? Any suggestions?


  1. Not really creative, but I have a vintage baby book that has a tiny spot to tape or put an envelope to store those sweet baby curls. If you don't have a baby book- perhaps scrapbooking them? Like I said, not very creative. Anyway, he looks so handsome and grown up with his haircut! (I have to admit I was diggin' his long locks though)


  2. We have a cute baby book that I think I will be placing some of the hair into fr safe keeping. Now I have to decide how to preserve the hair for the grandparents. More searching to be done! I know, I miss his long locks now. They were so pretty.

  3. Oh goodness, what a big milestone! I've been putting off my son's first haircut but it's definitely time ... I'd love to know if you find a good way of preserving the hair.
