Ava's First Hair Cut

Daddy Darren & I each have very different hair texture - me with very fine, curly hair and him with a thick crop of straight hair. When we were expecting Ava, we wondered who she'd take after. I love the way Aiden's hair turned out - a nice head of wavy hair. We have brought him for a clean shave when he was four month old, and we decided to do the same for Ava.

We went to the Baby Spa at Harbourfront Centre for her first shave. I was preparing myself for a good cry out from the feisty girl, but surprisingly she wasn't the least affected and in fact enjoyed herself with 'encouragement' from Aiden.
Preparing her for the hair cut - diaper change first.
All caped up and ready.
Ava all at ease, Aiden tensed & anxious, Mummy grinning away.
Aiden had tears in his eyes, feeling worried for Ava as she gets her shave.
It was really surprising for us when Ava was all smiles as she looked at Aiden who was standing in front of her, encouraging her. But Aiden was so quiet as he stood in front of her, watching her and I could see tears well up in his eyes. When we were almost done with the hair cut, I praised both Ava for being brave and Aiden for being such a good support to his sister, and he wiped away tears from his eyes. That was such a sweet moment. This boy is such a sensitive soul and he was really worried for his sister, and thus the tears in his eyes. I can tell that he'd be a protective brother to her and I am really glad for that.

More funny faces.
Scalp brushing?
And we are done.

Happy caterpillar.


  1. Ava looks so cute with her clean shaven head!

    I didn't shave Lauren's hair when she was little, so she has never been bald.

  2. Ava did well. Sophie wailed when her hair was shaved at 3 months. We did it because she had cradle cap and it was flaky and yellowish on top which was quite an awful sight. After she was bald, it was much easier to apply olive oil and eventually it went away.

  3. Love the father daugther pic... all mitchy matchy!
