And then it was gone

Yesterday was a big day for our littlest man.

At 5 months old we are seeing big changes almost daily, new sounds & slowly becoming more mobile but yesterday he had a transformation.

He lost his comb over-mo hawk that has defined him since birth.

(Isaac & I both shed a few tears if you were wondering)

What had started out as a little fuzz on top...
making for some fun pictures...
became LOTS of fun on top!

While he wore it well, and certainly wasn't bothered by the "party" on top of his head,
I knew it was time to say goodbye.

I will sure miss that look, but I am also curious to see how his hair continues to grow.
So Isaac's first haircut was at 5 months old, mostly because it was time. Also so I wouldn't miss it while I was working, not that Richard did that with Elijah or anything. He did videotape it and save the hair, but its not quite the same as being there!

And you already know that I am a milestone lover and obsessively document such things.

Isaac did pretty well and only fussed at the end. Which could have been because he was ready for lunch and a nap before we started. Or he could have just been really sad about losing his infamous do. I guess we'll never know!

Either way, he looks pretty stinking handsome.

He looks a little like a baby duck, since it is soft, fuzzy, & sticks straight up.

He looks so grown up now!

While I remain in denial that my baby is growing up too fast, I will mourn the loss of the "baby hair" for just a few more days.

For now, I have a short haired little man calling for me.
