Knox's 1st hair cut

I always said that if I had a little boy, I wanted to give him a mohawk or spike his hair. Turns out, my wish was granted..for the boy and the mohawk. Knox's hair actually grew into a natural mohawk, straight down the middle of his head and nothing on the sides. Of course I took full advantage of this cute manly hair style and spiked it when I could. People would ask me all the time if I cut it to look like that. While I may not be the world's best mom, I def was not taking clippers to my 3 month olds head to give him a mohawk.

 Over time though, his cowlick started growing a lot longer, so he had a mohawk with one long swirl on the back of his head. He also decided to pay tribute to the early 90's and start to grow a rat tail at the base of his neck (ugh..I shudder at the thought). It was not looking as cute and we had family pictures coming up, so I decided that I would trim it myself.

Dixie's 1st haircut was a big deal. We didn't do one till she was 2 (mainly because it took her 2 years to grow out those ringlets) and we went to a fun kid's salon to get it done. We videoed, talked it up, took pictures, etc.  For Knox however, I pulled out my everyday scissors and sat him in his high chair (poor second child). He moved so much that I thought surely there was no way this was going to be accomplished without one of us getting poked. After much wiggling and a cookie, I got the 2 pieces that I needed cut and his first curl placed securely in an envelope and in his baby book. My boy is 11 months now and the hair on the sides is starting to grow in. The top is getting too long to spike and the mohawk is disappearing:( I have to say, I'm a little sad about it.  Watch, when he's 17 he's going to want a mohawk again and suddenly mom is going to have issues with it:)

Oh look, here I am in pajamas....again and no make-up. This seems to be a reoccurring theme poor husband.
