Oh no!! Poor Micah! I couldn’t even get good photos of him because he was moving so much and was all upset when we announced to him that it was time to cut his hair. For a few weeks we were trying to show him various hairstyles and he wanted his long hair and hated all the examples we showed him. However, once a friendly older man was saying what a beautiful little girl he was at the supermarket, our waiting was up. It was time. He cried and cried because he likes his long hair (and honestly, I loved it too and thought he looked like Luke Skywalker), but he still twists and pulls his hair while he sucks his thumb. :: sigh :: If he didn’t pull at it so much, we wouldn’t have cut it at all. Here he is crying. This was while I was trimming it down (it was longer before taking this shot).
While cutting he said that he wanted it “THIS” way . . .the way it is, so I stopped. It could have used some pruning, but he was having such a hard time, that we stopped for him. We don’t have a bathtub by the way, only a stand-in shower, but Micah is small enough that he still fits in the sink (Leto takes showers). He was much happier. After I washed his hair I was able to style it better as you’ll see in the next photo. It is similar to what we’ve done to Leto’s hair in the past, but I guess that’s why he wanted it.
