Linus' First Haircut

Linus has been looking a bit shaggy these days, as you can see in the sweet photos below.  Curls everywhere, sticking out willy nilly, likening him to Bozo the clown, according to his daddy.  Duncan has wanted to take the trimmers to Linus for about a month now.  And then I was convinced.  So, today was the day.

Very different than the experiences of his sisters, Linus received his first haircut at Daddy's Barber Shop which is located right inside Our Kitchen.  Just after dinner and before his bath, Linus was stripped down and a towel was draped around his neck with a clothespin to fasten it.  First there were scissors.  Then there were clippers (or daddy's beard trimmer, as it were).  Allthewhile, watching youtube videos of the Spiderman theme song on my netbook.  He did really well with only slight whimpers now and then.

And I must say, he looks quite handsome.  (And I've got a labeled ziploc bag full of his wispy curls.)  A new phase of life indeed. 
No babies in this house!
