23 Months

On the way to the Pedia, we decided to drop by the mall to pick up some supplies. But while we were in the mall, we decided, if he won't make such a fuss, to have Matt's hair cut.

Barber trips are not always easy because he gets wary with strangers (barber) handling him. The last time we had his haircut was heartbreaking because he was crying all throughout the session - despite the fact that he's sitting on my father's lap. My hugs were not any consolation to him too.

But last Sunday, he looked as if he's gonna cry but with some encouragement, he's all cooperative na.

The Pedia trip went well too. It was my idea to bring his toy steth so he will not be jumpy when he sees the doctor with his (and it worked! And the doctor commended me for it. Smile). Matt was being chummy with the doctor the whole time and was constantly trying to strike a chitchat with him, much to the Pedia's delight. The booster shot was over and done with in just a fraction of a second Matt didn't even realize there was one.

It's a wonderful tear-free day.

Oh, goodness, the lad looks almost bored. So lucky he didn't pitch a fit.

As a toddler, my son hates going to the barber and yes, I hate the crying scenes.

Matt seems fine with the haircut now but wait.... you had his head shaved!

Oh, he's adorable! My nine year old doesn't cry, but he sure pitches a fit when I mention haircut!
