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!
