we gave sam his first haircut today. actually, it was more like a trim than a haircut (it's not like he was sprouting the amazon jungle there), but we trimmed a good three quarters of an inch in places. he actually did a better job of sitting still than i thought he would, though we had to ply him with toys and i had to sit him on my lap on the floor.
mike has been advocating for sam's first haircut for a while, but i don't think i was quite ready for him to be old enough for haircuts. and indeed, his "after" photos look very big-boyish to me. luckily i can still claim him as my little boy (anyone that's smaller than me totally qualifies as "little" right?)
