Yes he is still my darling, adorable William, but haircuts have a dramatic affect on my son, and it is not just in appearance, though the two pictures clearly show that he looks entirely different with his hair short.
Long haired Willie is a sweet and bubbly child, full of good-natured mischief and giggles.
Short haired Willie is a little shyer, a little more reserved, and more sensitive to slight.
Perhaps William feels more confident with his hair a little longer. Maybe cold ears makes him grouchy.
Right now I am excited about the growing out period!
