At 2 Years, 6 Months, 1 Week, and 4 Days of age, two of Our Babies Three got their first haircut. Cate was horrified by watching Jonah and Eve go under the scissors so, we didn't want to further traumatize her by subjecting her to that which was the current source of her horror. Jonah needed to be held while being clipped so, Cathy had the pleasure of holding him and getting covered in blond baby hair. Eve was whimpery but she was able to hold it together enough to sit in the big chair on her own.
It was, overall, a better experience than we had feared, but we still have to do it all over again with Cate. Hopefully we'll be able to convince her that her fear is unjustified and that no harm will befall her. That won't be too much for her 2 1/2 year-old brain to comprehend, will it?
