To Cut or Not to Cut

Jared and I have been allowing Tanner to grow his hair to show his individuality. He asked us to quit cutting it months ago after he saw a picture of Willy Nelson! Jared and I both agreed he could go shaggy as long as it wasn't in his eyes or over his collar.

Well, we found pictures of our little boy with a fresh hair cut and we had forgotten just how nice it looked. This is Tanner last summer:
This is Tanner last week:

I started commenting that we would probably cut it this week since it's getting so hot. He didn't really object too much. I've made several comments now and he seems on board. Thankfully his buddy Corbin who was also growing his hair came to church with a much shorter do (Thank you Alisa!). I want to encourage him to be himself vs always following Brennan's lead but at the same time I don't want people confusing him with cousin "It."

love the cousin "It" comment! I told Corban last fall when he started growing it longer that it WILL be cut short for the summer. He wasn't too happy about it, but seems alright now. Once fall rolls around I'm sure he'll grow it out again and I'm fine with that as longs as I can see his eyes and it's not over his collar.
