Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~

I believe a male baby's first haircut is a milestone to be recorded for all time. This, like immunizations, is one of those first and necessary 'evils' which must be endured with all the stoic valor and strength of a gladiator. Like many things, at the very least, they can be an exercise in patience and trust. After all, sitting still for an adult wielding a razor apparatus which hums along at high speed would understandably make any child cringe. For that reason, I proudly present my Grandson Elias, who like his Father before him, sat like a veteran old timer at a barber shop for the first time in his life. Only this wasn't a traditional barber shop, but one of those new fandangled styling salons which caters to little ones desiring a new look, complete with little race cars to distract even the most fearful of kids. For Elias, however, it was the lollipop the stylist offered which did the job of calming his nerves:
Such a worried look on his face; but he persevered
And ta-da! He officially joins his Daddy in the haircut been there, done that club:
Cool as a cucumber, we can now enjoy a few rays of sun!
