Not that we were avoiding the matter, but the kids finally got to the point where haircuts were necessary. Luckily, Greta's friend Anastasia was gracious enough to come to our house and perform the deed. I have heard from other parents that the first haircut can be a terrible experience and often involves restraining an hysterical, kicking and screaming child. Since we were in the comfort of our own home and no clippers were involved, the process went as good as could be expected. Due to past experience, Niklas just doesn't like anyone touching his head and so he squirmed around quite a bit and Greta was unable to get a picture of him. The cuts are cute, but seemed to age all of them about a year, especially Gabbie who got the most taken off. The best part is that Niklas's shunt is nearly invisible now.
