These were taken at a Christmas party at his speech therapy office (more about that another time).
This was Max during the whole haircut. He refused to sit in one of the cool chairs they had (carousel horse, firetruck), so he had to sit on my lap. He was moving around like crazy, trying to get away from the lady and her scissors and the lady actually cut herself once because of him. I felt so bad!
Every once in a while for a short bit, Max would put his thumb in his mouth and calm down. He was playing with this truck while we were waiting and calmed down a bit more when Bryan gave it to him. Max held it up against his face to comfort himself, which was cute.
Max especially freaked out when the hairstylist pulled out the razor to cut above his ears! This is where the evidence of his struggling really showed on his haircut. I didn't take pictures of that though. Bryan was crouching in front of Max to help distract him and Max would reach out to him, pleading for Bryan to save him. I wanted to cry. As soon as I put Max on the ground, he BOLTED into Bryan's arms. Hopefully we won't have to cut his hair often. We rewarded him with some Dairy Queen afterwards. The remaining pictures are me trying to show off his new cut and him running all over the apartment, being silly.
See? You can't tell from the front
