My big boy

Taj wanted a haircut. He said he didn't want his hair to be in his eyes anymore. Taj has had haircuts before. But in the past it was less of a "cut" and more of a "trim." Well... not today.

BEFORE


AFTER


He's so handsome, but still.... when I saw him this was me:

omar said...

Wow he looks like Sei! And he does look big. Next thing you know, he'll be asking for the car keys.

NOBODY said...

Wait, Taj is a boy?
Juuuuuuuuuuust kidding.
I would have BAWLED at the loss of those curls. He looks so big. He also looks EXACTLY like Sei in the first "Before" picture and exactly like you in the first "after" picture.

It's like magic. He's so dang cute.

I just asked Big J and Little J who that was in the "After" pictures. Uh..... -->crickets chirping<--. Then I showed them the Before pictures and Little J said, "That's Taj! He's older?"

And don't listen to Omar, I'm sure it'll be months before that happens.

S said...

Suzanne said...

Wow, what a change! But he looks handsome both ways! Look at how those big blue eyes pop now! :)

Stacey said...

What a handsome guy! He looks great. :)

Chel said...

Wow! I love it!!! I remember being so sad when I finally took Jaxon in for a CUT. But when he was done, he looked so good and like a handsome little boy! Just like Taj! I LOVE IT!!! He looks awesome!

annie said...

He is so gorgeous! Reminds me of when I got Bailey's curls all cut off, I cried too... now he is 14 and has long hair again.

Yvonne said...

Oh my goodness--he looks so grown up. What a handsome young man.

JustRandi said...

Wow! He looks SO much older. Does he love it?

Sheila said...

what a 'cutie patootie'!
That's how I felt when my son Stewart showed up after what I thought was a trim... it was a cut. Sad days. It gives an all new dimension to his eyes.
toodles, Sheila

tara said...

he does look so much older! what a stud!

fawndear said...

I agree with Shelia and Suzanne. The kid has amazing eyes which you can now see. Before the hair was cool, but the eyes take precedence. I can just see the neighborhood girls oggling now.
Plus who wants long hot hair in the summer.
Cute blog, I found it through Mel.

Klin said...

Wow!!! I had to do a double take. He is so handsome, adorable, and those eyes are mesmerizing. I think it will be hard to see him with out his signature locks. I hope you had some tissues on hand.

Carrot Jello said...

That is one good looking kid. If the girls aren't after him already, they will be. Just wait.
I suggest you have more kids and populate the earth with beautiful people.

What a Baby Hunk! wow. So handsome! :)

My son had the same kind of beautiful big curls. I think he was three when I finally took him for his first big cut. I cried, too.

Not long after, when he was about four, I let Uncle Mikey take him to Luke Air Force Base for a cut. Not the actual base haircutter dude, but a shop on the base. I told them which number blades to use, and they messed up big...he came home looking like a cancer patient. I REALLY cried then.

I finally let Uncle Mikey take him again for a haircut this year. My son is 11 now. :) They actually did it right and he looked perfect this time. Not like a cancer patient!

Millie said...

What a cutie.

(Now keep it short - it's really hard to convince them to cut it when they're 15)

aubrey said...

waaah! he looks so much OLDER. i would have cried too! nice job, tori!

Gretch said...

Tell my HOW did you get him to do that???
My Ashy is going to look like the "before" before too long. He is a total spaz when I try to cut his hair!!

PJ said...

He does look older! Cute before, Cute after

Stepherz said...

He's so darling no matter how his hair is! But, he does look a bit older with it short, huh? Handsome Dude! He is such a gorgeous combo of you and Sei!

Nancy Face said...

Wow...he looks like he doubled in age in about a half hour! :0

Jenny said...

Lauren said...

Whitney said...

Whoa!!! The hair is GONE!!! He looks very handsome, and older!!!
My brother is the one that cries when his hair gets cut, ha ha.

Jenni said...

He is STILL soooo CUTE! I know the feeling, trust me, I do. He has such beautiful hair! Max's curls are finally growing back!
