Lincoln’s hair was getting pretty shaggy, so we decided to give him his first haircut last Monday.
Jonathan really wanted to do it himself and, although I was very skeptical at first, I think he did a pretty good job. We set up Lincoln’s booster seat in the living room so we could try to distract him with Aladdin (it didn’t work) and Jonathan got to work.
It was so funny when Jonathan used a spray bottle to get Lincoln’s hair wet. He about jumped out of his seat every time he got sprayed! We employed several means of distraction, but food was by far the most effective. Lincoln ate a whole cereal bar, but Jonathan still wasn’t done, so I had to break out the big guns. Butterscotch chips. That is the way to keep a baby from crying while getting their hair cut.
He was so happy to be done!

Cornell's Veterinary School hosts an open house every year and (as it turns out) all of Ithaca comes out to pet baby sheep and learn how to milk a cow. Lincoln loved it! He got to pet dogs, farm animals, a rat, and, against my express wishes, a snake. He was surprisingly gentle with all the animals, he' such a good boy!
One of the weirder attractions featured at the open house was a cow with a hole in it. Yes a hole. They use this poor cow to help other sick cows…
