How to cut a toddlers hair...
First. Do not attempt alone. At least two adults are required. :) My husband held Moses the entire time, despite back breaking aches. Last time we sat Moses in the high chair but for some reason he was not having it this time.
Second. Insert lollipop. Moses NEVER gets candy so this is indeed a very special treat. The one photo with the close up is basically how he stayed the whole time, virtually still and cooperative. Occasionally Doug would switch arms and take the lollipop out so Moses could catch his breath. Note drool all down the front of Doug(from Moses not Doug). Also shown is a shot of the floor. Those wet circles are the pools of slobber that Moses would drop each time Doug would remove the lollipop from Moses mouth. All in all it was a good haircut. I can't believe how many of them he has had since birth. Everyone tried to convince me that all his hair would fall out but I knew better.
Here is a before and after from his first hair cut at 6 months.
