We have kept Owen's hair fairly long ever since he was born. We decided to go for the short spiked look for the summer. He loved it and it looked so cute! We plan to keep it short during the summer and see how he likes it. We also took Gray to get his first haircut before we went to the beach. He sat so still in the chair and barely moved. They just gave him a trim, but most of his curls were gone and I was so sad after we left! Owen kept his curly hair until he was about 3 and then it was pretty straight. I will be glad when Gray's grows back out and the cute curls come back!
