Squirt’s hedgehog-looking-anti-gravity hair was given a snip a couple of weeks ago, and I have to say that I like his clipped hair much better!
This was how his hair looked like moments before the clipping:
And this was right after:
In between that, Squirt was actually spooked by the sound of the clippers. He was letting out a cry which I had not really heard before – a cry that told me that he was gobsmacked scared! Although I wanted his hair off, I could not quite handle his screaming throughout the entire 5-10 minutes process. So, I chickened out and tended to Spud when the clipping took place, leaving him balling his eyes out in Silver Bullet’s arms as (the husband of) a friend of mine clipped away his rogue-looking hair.
Thankfully, it didn’t take me too long to calm him down after that. Pretty soon he was all smiles again, and even let our “Clipper-Dad” friend trimmed some of the hair he had missed without any fuss.
We all then headed out to a birthday party of about 12 adults and 6 screaming kids we were invited to with his new spunky hairdo just a couple of floors down in the same apartment building. Unfortunately, the day proved to be too much for him, for that same evening when we got back home, the spooked-sounding cries came back again and it took us a good 2.5 hours to be able to finally calm him down before he crashed for the night.
He was clearly over-stimulated.
The good thing about being a baby is that they don’t bear grudges. He was all smiles again the next day, looking all spunky, chatty and fresh with a hair-style that is here to stay!
