Gavin’s First Haircut

I believe this is the soonest we’ve ever cut a baby’s hair. But Gavin’s hair is stick-straight and the baby mullet was driving me crazy. Plus it was starting to grow down over his ears in a weird way.

Time for The First Haircut.

We lured him in with food.


And then we pounced.


He was okay with it until the buzzer. Lars had to hold his head in place and he didn’t like that very much so Lars tried to do it in short bursts: grab head, buzz real quick, let go. Repeat.



He was a pretty good sport about the whole thing. Max isn’t even as good about hair cuts and he’s nine.
