Alex did well with his first haircut today. We went to Cool Cuts 4 Kids, which has lots of toys in the waiting area, fun chairs to sit in during the haircut, and DVDs or video games for the kids during the haircut. He was more interested in watching all of the other people than in watching an Elmo video.
I managed to hold out until Alex was 15 months old to go for a haircut. I was worried that it would make him look older, but actually he looks about the same. It is HOT here, so it will be nice for him to have shorter hair.
