He did pretty well. While this photo makes him look pensive or mildly unhappy, he was chill. He didn’t cry. He wasn’t frightened of the stylist. Indeed, he has about zero stranger anxiety, which is kind of fascinating. This is one extroverted baby!
He now looks quite grown up. It’s funny to think, as I write another round of New Year’s related pieces, that a year ago he looked like a very round belly (see photo). Some things in life don’t change much, but babies do. He’s saying “mama” and “duh-dee” and said something that sounded very much like “dog” when the kiddie salon’s pet pooch darted around during the hair cut. He stares at the Christmas tree with what I can only imagine is the confusion that comes from having no frame of reference. What’s up with my parents that they brought a tree in the house???
