a portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2015
photo taken March 16, 2015 // Denver, Colorado
And, just like that, after a true haircut on Sunday, March 15, Raffa looks really, truly like a little boy (not a baby). I felt good about the cut while it was happening, even as I scrambled to preserve each clipping of his locks in a baggy. I even felt good about it later that day and evening. However, that night there were a few tears shed on my pillow. Not because I don't love the cut - I do! He looks so handsome and I am glad we did it. But, it was a milestone nonetheless, and made my heart ache.
