Is that a mop on my head?

Okay, so this post has nothing to do with an actual mop, but figuratively speaking, this is about what Hayden's head looked like! David and I can never say that our child needs more hair. I had been able to keep it trimmed and shaped for the most part, but we finally reached a point where my limited expertise was no longer enough. So we took Hayden to Gulfport yesterday (we had some shopping to do) and had his hair cut. Below are some pictures from the experience.

Our stylist for the day, Ashley, has a 3YO herself, so she was wonderful with Hayden. He sat by himself for the entire cut, and when he got wiggly, she provided a few suckers for him. I didn't think this through very well; I had the camera, but forgot a bag for a lock of his hair and didn't think about any sort of distraction. But we made it with very minimal needs and he looks wonderful. I forgot to take a picture of him dressed for church this morning, but he's now truly a little boy. No more baby! I'm just glad I can see his eyes again and his "mop" is tamed...for a day or two, at least!
