2nd Haircut

Today I brought Henry to Snip-its for his second haircut. This was his first haircut in a salon. He definitely needed it as his hair was getting out of control. At the salon he was very amused with the antics of the other kids running about. When his time came he sat down very well and let me buckle him in without a problem. For most of the cut he behaved well. He didn't like the clippers or the water spray very much. I was reminded of some of my experiences in the tub with him. He now looks a little older and lot more like his older cousin.

I did some coin roll hunting, the first of 2009, during the past two days.

I searched sixty-three small dollars, but didn't find anything.

I also looked through 8,025 half dollars. They produced ten 40% silver halves (1965, 2 x 1966, 6 x 1968D, 1969D), seven proofs (1973S, 1985S, 1998S, 2 x 2000S, 2001S, 2006S) , one hundred fifty-six mint set halves (2 x 2002P, 2 x 2003P, 5 x 2003D, 41 x 2004P, 33 x 2004D, 3 x 2005P, 20 x 2005D, 5 x 2006P, 10 x 2006D, 23 x 2007P, 12 x 2007D, 2008P, 2 x 2008D) and a 1986S Statue of Liberty Commemorative. I was a bit bummed to start off the year with so little silver, but at least I wasn't totally skunked and finding one of the remaining proofs I need was pretty sweet. The Statue of Liberty Commemorative was the second one I've found. It was a thrill to find another. I'm not sure what I'll do with all of those mint set halves.

3,160 quarters turned up just six Canadians and one Philippines 1 Piso.

1,300 dimes produced fifty-one Canadians. I actually found a whole roll of Canadian dimes. That's a first for me. There wasn't anything special in them, but it was unique.

In 1,120 nickels I found three Canadians (3 Ni).

I searched just 350 pennies. In them was one Wheat (1953) and two Canadians.

Found: 1 penny (outside Snip-its), 1 quarter (outside Babies 'R Us)

Did you keep any of his first haircut hair at all?

Over here, Harrods (you must have heard of it) offer a "first haircut" package which includes a certificate and a lock of hair.

Henry's new haircut is adorable. I can't wait to see it in person. Yesterday, Liam correctly identified you in a picture as "Unc Bri."
