Monkey Gets a Haircut.

So, I finally gave in.  After witnessing Elijah rubbing his eyes, and trying to get his long “bangs” out of his way, a few times this week, I broke down and made an appointment for a haircut.

Here is the before, notice the bangs completely covering his eyes, and please ignore the boogies:


And the after:


Buh-bye sweet baby curls.

He still looks handsome as ever.  But I am so sad that he is getting more and more grown up.  I loved his long, crazy hair.  But it was clearly starting to bother him lately.  And the sweet curls will grow back.

We went to Chaos Studio Salon in downtown Mt. Clemens.  RJ’s cousin, Gillian, works there.  Didn’t she do an awesome job?  Monkey did so good, too.  Probably because he knows Gillian and he had a few suckers.


And he looked adorable in the cape.  Although the sucker-drool-hair-clipping combination ended up being quite gross.


I swear he wasn’t mad.  He just kept his serious face on the whole time.


I forgot for a minute that his hair was short and then when we he took his hat off I was so sad.  I did hold back the tears though.


Thanks Gillian for doing such a great job!  (I should have thought to get a picture of Gillian and Elijah together…)

I'm Jessica. I am a wife and a mama. My husband, Rj, is a youth pastor who just began seminary this fall. Our baby boy, Elijah, is almost two and he is the coolest thing I have ever made. In February we will be adding a baby girl monkey to our family. I love doing crafts, shopping for good deals, vacations in Disney World, naps, and playing with my monkey. I have more fun picking out clothes for Eli than I should admit. I wish I spent more time reading good books. And I really miss sleeping for more than 4 hours at a time, but I am told this will happen day.
