First Hair Cut

Well, first hair trim...Ryland's hair was starting to grow over his ears just a little, so I decided it was time to clip those little pieces shorter, and I wasn't willing to pay a barber shop to do it.  I've been thinking about doing it for a couple of weeks now, but was nervous about holding scissors next to my wiggling little boy's ears.  I finally gave in and took him out on the back porch with nail clippers on Saturday.  He did get lightly scratched a couple of times, but nothing that broke the skin, and he didn't seem at all bothered by it.  My cutting is far from straight, but he always wears a hat anyway!


Before shot...a little fuzzy
Getting ready
The first snip
Working on the right side, now
His head was getting sweaty...
it was humid outside
The only "after" shot...he was getting too impatient by then to get a good picture
