Mohawk..going..going..gone..


As many of you know, Jake's hair is a bit...styled shall I say. Last week I went grocery shopping at four different stores. (Monday is my Rebate shopping day as well as grocery shopping day), anyways, EVERY single store we went to Jake got called a girl. Now, I didn't think anything of it because heck sometimes its hard to tell what sex a baby is. It got sort of old after the first 3 stores but oh well. Today I had to go to the store again, and within seconds of us walking in, THREE different people commented on what a beautiful little girl Jake was. It was sort of funny this little boy said, MOM look at that boys' hair! The mom looked away embarrassed and said, Honey that's a little girl! She then looked apologetically at me, and the little boy said, Mom...that is a boy not a girl. I started laughing and walked away. Well, one lady said something that really stuck to me. She, of course apologized for calling Jake a girl and said, I'm sorry! The hair through me off." After that, I KNEW it was time to cut Jake's hair. The Mohawk was getting a bit ridiculous and big so I bit the bullet and did the best that I could with a 5 month old.
These are the results, not too bad. Still some rough spots but he was crying bloody murder and wriggling so I gave it a rest. I am still in shock that I cut it, but it needed to be done finally and he looks so handsome!

Ayden had the same thing, but his hair was really blonde so it wasn't as noticeable(sp). I waited until he was a year old before I let Ryan buzz his head!! Jake looks so handsome and I hope people will get that he isn't a girl now!!

Jake doesn't look like a girl! His new haircut looks cute though.

Also, you are a professional cake baker/decorater. Your cake looks so good!

Awwwh, Jake is SOOOO cute! He is getting so big! I bet you can hardly believe he is almost 6 months old. I completely understand the haircut thing. But, Jack is getting use to the razor "buzz" now, we just did hair cut number 4 (that's one a month-gee his hair grows fast).

You had me laughing about the grocery store comments! The cute baby hair and little boys...hmmm, a touchy subject for us mamas I think.
It's totally cute though, nice job. Haircuts are tough with Asher still, I guess I don't do them often enough.
Jake's a cutie!

P.S. Don't laugh, but, who is Percy??
