This haircut was a long time coming. With Nixon it was so much easier because he hair was just kind of straight and thin. But Crew has thicker curly hair, and I swear it matches so much of his personality!
But after the worker at Costco asked if "she" wanted a treat, I knew it was time. It still took a couple weeks to get it done, but it happened.
It was so stinking long! But look at him now. Thankfully he kept some of his curl!
And by well, I mean this was what his face looked like for a good 10-15 minutes, even after we came inside. I'm pretty sure he blamed by mom for the rest of the day. Good news is, a couple days after the initial freak out, he touched it on his terms, and he seemed to be ok with it. Maybe next year we'll try again.
North Carolina isn't known for its snow during the winter, but for some reason, this year it dumped on us. By the time it was done we got about 4-5 inches. That meant everything in the city basically shut down, and we were able to have Ethan home from work!
Crew was not interested, but these two boys were living it up! They would have stayed out there all day if we actually had snow gear, but living in the south, we don't have any of that.
So instead, they stayed out and played as long as they could, got soaking wet, came inside to dry their clothes and warm up a little bit, and then head right back out to play some more. I think that happened three or four times.
I even went and spent some time outside (mostly to take pictures of them). I will say, it was fun to see Nixon enjoy something that was so fun to me when I was little. I'll take snow once a year, as long as it's gone in a couple days!
I'm so glad Ethan is such a fun dad and spends time doing things with the boys that I would prefer to avoid, and I know Nixon loved having him home to play with.
In our church, the year a child turns 4, they graduate from nursery into Sunbeams (based off the song Jesus wants me for a sunbeam). Nixon has been so ready, and I'm pretty sure these pictures show just how proud he was to be a Sunbeam.
