Today Koen got his first haircut.



Now let me just say, if you have an adorable little baby boy, and you know he REALLY needs a haircut, but you don't want to do it because you think he'll look too grown-up, and you just really don't feel ready for that step yet - DON'T DO IT!

I know he looks so cute with his hair cut, and I know he really needed it cut (Karl really messed it up good for the before picture), but I was not ready for that step yet. I caved to my husbands nagging (yes, women aren't the only ones who nag) and I wish I hadn't done it. I have been sad all day and everytime I look at him I wish I hadn't cut his hair. He aged like six months in about 10 minutes. I was not ready for this step. So even though he looks so handsome in his new haircut, I am completely miserable and wish I hadn't done it yet.

So, my advice to anyone out there who doesn't feel quite ready - DON'T DO IT! Wait until you're ready, because you'll regret it if you don't.

He is so cute!! He does look so much older but he is still so cute!! :) I cut Hallie's hair once before she was 1, and I wish I wouldn't have done it, it made her look like a boy. But it grew back pretty fast. Hopefully his will too, but I still think he looks adorable!

That is a hard step, I know. Especially for your last baby. However, he is so cute with short hair!

OHHHHHHHHH!!!I didn't realize a hair cut could change one's appearance so much. He definitely looks alot older, but still so cute.
