White Trash Baby

I was feeding Gray last night and all of a sudden realized how white trash he looked...no clothes, a messy face, shaggy hair, a high chair with the pad falling off. I thought it was so ugly it was cute. So I grabbed my camera.



It was these pictures, however that inspired his first hair cut. He has the most untamable, feathery hair. I haven't seen hair like that since...Reid.



I have a friend who just shaved off her baby's hair. She said it was all coming in so uneven that this just made it look even and thicker and healthier. I thought it looked a little funny since her baby was a girl, but what she said made sense. I was a little nervous to do it. Gray doesn't have much hair. It hardly seem right to shave off the little he had. But his hair was NASTY! I put a #4 attachment on my clippers so he wouldn't be a complete cue-ball. I was so glad I did it. If it's possible, it made him a million times cuter. Now it can grow evenly. So here it is...

BEFORE..........AFTER



Could this baby get any cuter? I doubt it.





Since I had my camera out, I took a million pictures of Gray last night...

In the tub after his hair cut. Check out the faces he makes.




On the bed after his bath. Most of these picture didn't turn out...he wouldn't hold still. But I just had to show you his chunks. It's hard to believe this chubster is only in the 50th percentile. He is my smallest baby yet, but by far the lumpiest.

just absolutely adorable. Good job on the haircut! :) You did great! I would have been nervous too, but it really looks good. All of your kids are just beautiful!

And, yes, I worked in a small icecream shop when I was 15- my first "real" job, that wasn't babysitting!

I love his haircut... and his super cute rolls! I can't believe he's only in the 50th percentile either!

He looks SO cute with that hair cut. Is Gray going to be the first boy in your family who doesn't get spiked hair?

Well as a hairstylist myself Katie, I have to say, not bad on the haircut! It does look much better! So cute! I have been debating whether I should cut some bangs on Hannah or not. If I decide yes, I have no idea how on earth I will get her to sit still! Cute pictures!

Nope I do not think he could get any cuter!!!!! Those pictures make me miss when my boys were little.

I love the haircut! Brett used to get so mad at me when I gave Tavin haircuts, esp. at a young age. I too just thought he looked so much cuter when I did cut it. He sure hates the clippers though! I LOVE the biggest picture of Gray in the tub. That face is HILARIOUS!!!

melissa said...

I had to tell you...Tavin has been sitting on my lap as I looked at friends blogs. I keep coming back to yours to get to everyone elses. He just stares at the pictures of Gray every time! It's cute!

That is the cutest haircut!! HE is edible, honestly, the cutest, chubbiest little white trash baby I have ever seen!! Just want to hold him and gnaw on those thighs!!

What a CUTE baby!!! You did a really good job on his haircut-even though he was cute before also.

SO CUTE!!!

Cynthia said...

He's got the cutest little figure I've ever seen. Those are some "popeye" arms!

Em!

He looks super cute with the haircut. I sometimes do Derek's myself too, but Jason hates when I cut it. And I have to mention the rolls like Jeanine did! OMG, how cute is he!!!

Eric & Jen said...

Cute! I love the rolls. It's funny when babies have rolls where there isn't even a joint. He is so super cute. And I can't believe he already needed a haircut. My kids don't have enough hair to cut until they are at least 18 months. Love the pictures.

Autumn said...

Oh my gosh!!! He's so cute!!! The top left bathtub pic looks like Parker to me. What a good idea about the haircut. I'll remember that if I have a boy with unruly hair. Don't think I could do it with a girl though the logic makes sense. And I really like the after. His love handles are lovely. Not sure why I think that's so cute on babies but I absolutely love it.

Pedersens said...

He is way tooo CUTE! I just want to pinch his cheeks! Love his new hair cut too.

Erin said...

Brillant on evening out the hair. i should have done that with Austin!
I love all the bath pics. He sure does have some fun facial expressions. And the chub-to cute!

Karen said...

What a happy baby you have! I love the new look. I love all of his rolls!

SHIRLEY'S said...

I love the rolls! Jackson never had that many. I kinda wish he did! jackson has yet to get his hair cut, but it coming soon!

Betheny & Jacob said...

Oh my gosh! I LOVE the rolls! You just wanna squish 'em! So cute. Love the flashback too.
BTW, yes, Jacob did have to put that bed together in Ryan's room. He did all the cuts and stuff in the garage and then assembled it in the room. We can't get it out without taking it apart. He loves it. I'll totally take pics when it's all complete.
