Snip! Snip!!

He traveled from the Capital City to the small, hometown, barbershop that has cut the hair of his ancestors. Mason's first haircut was over before he knew it, a rite of passage from babyhood into little boy-hood. Sitting on Gramps' lap he was calm and cooperative. The experience wasn't one bit traumatic, thanks to the wisdom and experience of Benny the barber. All together now... "awwww"!

Life is Good!
(I'm not sure that those sitting and waiting were nearly as impressed by this momentous occasion!)

Definitely warrants a big AHHHHHhhhh. He is so adorable. I have pictures of my son's first haircut that I just cherish. I got caught up reading your blog - been out of commission with computer problems. So I missed your give away - just wanted to say that is a lovely journal you gave away.

How quickly they change! But he's still adorable. Our little J still has his baby curls but probably not for long!
