He didn't like it at first, then he got his first lollipop, a watermelon DumDum. The haircut went swimmingly well after that!
Nathan also got his first lollipop, a mango DumDum! He didn't get a haircut like his brother did to earn it, though. Sometimes you just get in on your brother's coattails!
The finished product - he looks like a little boy now!
Then we had a little surprise, when our hairstylist's 102 one-day-old chicks arrived (yes, she raises chickens, too-a very talented woman, indeed)!
We almost had to buy this one when Nathan grabbed it and nearly popped its head off!
Matthew actually said "tickle, tickle," when he patted the chick!
I'm so glad that my friend K was able to give Matthew his first haircut and that we got to do it together as a family. The chicks just pushed the whole event way over the edge of the cuteness chart!
And I listened to 100 peeping chicks while K did my hair after Steve and the boys left!
