Jude turns 2 AND Jude's first haircut

Well, My baby turned two today. The past two years have FLOWN by. It makes me so sad, but Glen keeps reminding me that it is better than the alternative. That's his way of saying just enjoy him while he's here. And I am. He is such an AWESOME little boy. I remember when he was born and I CRIED and CRIED!! I just felt SO blessed to FINALLY get my boy. I had dreamt of that day since I was a little girl and it finally arrived 2 years ago today. Happy 2nd Birthday my baby Jude!!!

AND guess who finally got a haircut. My dad, Glen, Anna, and a FEW other friends have been BUGGING me to cut Jude's hair for MONTHS!!! While others, me included did NOT want to. I guess everyone can tell who won out this time. So last night, we sat him in Glen's lap while my mom held his hands and my daddy videoed me cutting (I told you I would NEVER pay for any of my kids hair to be cut!!) my sweet baby's hair, curls and all. Yes, it was the most horrific 30 minutes ever. He screamed and kicked and sweated the ENTIRE time. Half way through I reminded all of them that we are NOW going to have to do this every few weeks to keep up the do. But I think that he will do better next time, now that he knows that we are NOT killing him. I sure hope so. It was not the most fun I've had!! So here is a picture of my 2 year old spiky hair little boy. Isn't he PRECIOUS????

Love it!!! When Carter first had his hair cut, at the first snip he cried "OW!" like it HURT. It did get easier every time afterward, tho!

I have a cousin that cryed till he was about 7 every time his hair got cut .... they had to start cutting it in his sleep cause he swore it hurt him and the way he cried you really thought it did! lol

He looks SO cute! It sure does make them look older doesn't it? He may like it better next time you cut it, but be prepared that he may also hate it until he is 5. lol Dylan luckily has never shed a tear for any of his cuts, he actually loves it. (but he also gets to go to daddy's "man" place & watch football while they cut it....and get flirted with by every girl there lol) My nephew Austin however....he's 5...and he JUST stopped throwing fits over it. Let's hope Jude just had beginners jitters. =) See you tomorrow...maybe a few minutes late, but I'm coming!

He is a doll! He looks so much like my brother did when he was younger! He had gorgeous curls (& still does) but keeps his hair really short now that he is an adult. He says he hated that my mom left it long in a lot of his childhood pictures. He also hated the fact that everyone always wanted to touch it & run their fingers through it. I was so jealous because mine is about as straight as it gets! Ha!

As for my little Asian boy.....I have been cutting his hair extremely short since he was about 1 because his hair is *so* out of control if I don't. He was not too fond of haircuts in the beginning but he knows it comes about every 3 weeks now! Good thing I went to cosmetology school! Ha!

By the way, I love the name Jude!

He's adorable! Love the haircut. I just gave my son a haircut a few weeks ago, I usually take him somewhere. Anyhow, it was an experience, that my Mom, also, caught on videotape. LOL!
