Preston's First Haircut

We have been watching Preston's hair grow slowly into a mullet, so it was time to get it cut. We debated about where to take him for the "first time," and ultimately decided to take him to Steve's barber shop. That way he can take Preston with him whenever he needs a cut.

We decided to go early this morning, before it got too crowded. We were a little worried about how he would do, but it is amazing what a sucker can do for that child. He sat on Steve's lap for the experience and did really well.

The first two photos are his "before" shots. The only time he got a little freaked out was when Jill brushed his bangs forward and cut them. I guess he didn't like to see the scissors that close to his face (and who can blame him?). In order to make him calm down and quit crying, we gave him another sucker and he was all better (nothing like being double fisted)!
