That lasted for all of about 10 seconds. Next thought was to see if he would play with a comb (the toys were in the bag).
It was almost like he was trying to hold on to the comb for dear life. Poor guy. The comb didn't last long, which was my fault. I was busy taking pictures when he stealthily put it in his mouth. Next.
Our last thought was to try to bribe him with a sucker that Ashley had (puffs were in the bag). We were willing to try anything at this point.
This also worked for approximately 10 seconds before he wanted nothing to do with it anymore. He's not used to sweet foods and he typically prefers vegetables to fruits, so I think that this was a little too much for him. Keith enjoyed it though.
We gave up trying at this point. We held him still, let him fuss, and finished the haircut.
Ashley said that he did really well compared to some of the other babies she's given haircuts to. I'm not sure if she was just being nice or if he really was quite the trooper. I feel really silly that I'd put it off for this long. Blame the crazy mom in me I guess. He is such a handsome guy now and I love the way it turned out!
