So, about a month ago I braided all of Lucien’s hair – can you believe his hair was 7 or 8 inches long! Crazy! He loved the braids but Jeremy and I were actually looking for a place for him to get a haircut.

And you can see he likes his haircut, too. He keeps coming over and saying “mommy! Daddy! Haircut!!” while rubbing his head. So cute.
