First Hair Cut

My son came into this world with a head full of hair. And it grew over this first year. Contrary to what this first picture suggests, he did not like to have it combed. This is the chronicle of his first haircut.
"But dad... this is my strength! Don't cut it! I want to take a Nazarene vow! Or Nazirite vow! Either one!"

"I can't watch!"

"Ooohh... my head feels so light... and tingly."

Should have stuck with the Nazarene vow - can't go wrong with those guys!

Man, do I see a little silver in that little man's head already?

Oh, the joys of being a dad!

Dave, some of our best friends are Nazarenes. LOL :-)

Carter, joy is right! And if he gets his old man's genes, he'll be gray by the time he's 30!

Now, make sure that you teach him about the evolution of black hair, from the fro to the jerry curl to the flat top fade to the Gumby to the rows, etc. Hopefully one day he'll be able to identify them on the poster that they have in all the barber shops!

Hey Thabiti!
This is the first time I've seen Titus! He's so cute, and older than I imagined!
Now you officially know that I dabble in your blog. Of course, it would take you posting a picture of your kiddo for me to comment. =) Tell Kristie I send a very warm, "Hello!" with a hug! We think of you guys often.

I've been in love with his hair since the first time I saw him! I'm glad I didn't have to take him to get it cut.

I heard your new book being talked about on Janet Parshall today!

Keep on,
