We took Adam in to "Cartoon Cuts" for his 2nd haircut today. I kept putting it off, as the curls on the back of his head are SO cute. However, he was truly beginning to look like a ragamuffin. Waves and curls all over the place... a ragamuffin or a little surfer dude...! Anyway, he was excited going into the store for his "hair cuttt" but got a little nervous when he sat in the chair. The hairdresser asked if he could have a lollipop... uh, no... chocking hazard, lady, he's not even 2 yet (and I'm a little paranoid) so she gave him 3 hair clips to play with (he left the store with 2 of them. Oops).

He did okay during the haircut (and was a little intrigued) but did say "No Like It", "Almost done", "All done" (hint to the stylist, I guess) quite a few times and wasn't all that happy.
Adam's classic "NO LIKE IT!" look
He kept his cool until the razor (?) came out and then he started to cry & move away. So we ended up only having one side of his "sideburns" shaved off. When we left the store, I asked him what had happened and he said:
"Haircut. I was scared"
How cool is that?!? We were amazed that he used that word (he's used it a few times before, but only after we've said that he was scared... we didn't use the word at all -- I don't think -- during the haircut).

Next, we rode the elevators a few time -- his favorite -- so all was good in Little Love's world again... and I love the haircut. He looks so handsome and so much older! :o)
