Nolan got his first haircut on Friday. His signature wild “LOOK AT ALL THAT HAIR” dark brown locks are gone, and what’s left is soft, light brown hair that matches his siblings’- a sweet, neat, little boy haircut.
I know there are those who are horrified that my 5 month old baby got a haircut. “But he looks so much older…so much different.” Yeah, he does. And I LOVE IT.
Something changed for me on Friday when I walked out of that salon. It felt like I was holding a brand new baby. Just like his hair, the past few months have felt wild and out of control. Sweaty and scream-y.
We needed a fresh start, a new beginning. More smiles and less tears.
There’s still lots about life right now that deserves the side-eye, but it’s slowly getting better.
