Luke's First Haircut

Thank you to my sister-in-law for capturing Luke's first haircut.  My grandfather is a barber, so we knew we wanted him to do Luke's first cut.  We hated to chop off the curls, but it was time.  Luke did "okay."

He sat in his high chair at nana's house and was sitting reluctantly, but quietly, at first.  Then he realized Pop was near his ears and he really got upset.  Probably because he just went through his ear tubes  procedure!  Needless to say, I was happy when it was all over and we were heading home with our three envelopes full of Luke's curls...yes, I'm that kinda mom.

Any advice?  Luke wasn't happy about our makeshift cape so we ditched that idea.  He's not thrilled about getting sprayed by water so Pop dipped his comb in water instead.  Things need to move quickly...  Pop pretended to cut my hair first with the scissors so that Luke felt more comfortable with the "snip snip" sound and I think that helped a bit.

Do you have any first hair cut stories?  Here is the event in photos...
