Sorry about the quality of today’s photo, I forgot to take my DSLR and we had to resort to Sprogdaddy’s camera phone instead. Trust me to miss taking a decent photograph of an important milestone. We did remember to keep a lock of hair though!
I expected the session to be a bit of a nightmare, but he was no trouble at all sitting in the hairdresser’s chair. The whole thing took a little over ten minutes and I think he enjoyed being fussed over by three people. A couple of animal-shaped biscuits and mummy’s purse took care of the odd moments he got twitchy.
My goodness though, he looks like a completely different boy! I keep staring at him, it’s amazing how a change in hair style can make someone look so different. I miss the long locks if I’m honest, but it’s nice to have a change every now and then. I’ll get used to it soon enough, though it will be a while before we consider cutting it again. It’s weird, but he looks both younger and older at the same time.
We also nipped to our local second-hand kids/baby shop this afternoon. I didn’t realise just how few summer clothes we had for Sprogzilla, most of the ones we bought a couple of months or so ago are still too big for him so he’s back in 12-18 month kit for the time being. He has recently reached 80cm in height which is still right down on the 1st percentile, but at least he’s not off the bottom any more.
Now if only the sun would come back out and let us take that trip to the beach we were planning for today……
