Hair offering ceremony

Tuesday, January 27, 2015


So following a tradition, we went to the Pittsburgh temple to offer Raghav's hair to Lord Balaji.

So its done on an odd month before he turns 1 or after the age of 3..we decided we need to have the liberty of cutting his hair when it grows and if we wait till he is 3, he will be very uncomfortable..
I dont agree with the concept but it is what it is..atleast now he can have regular haircuts..so we offer 3 cuts of hair to God, then get it shaved by a barber or a hair stylist and then celebrate..LOL..whatever the shaving wasnt fun...he was crying and im sure he gave me the "I hate u mom" look a few times..I hated myself too...

but here are the Before after pictures...he loves the new do though...no hair messing his face up..

    Oh my goodness he is a cutie with all his hair and without! I can't wait to see if his hair comes back in a different way (more curls, thicker or thinner). Too cute!

    He's cute either way. Don't hate yourself; traditions are important and he won't remember this later. If you waited until after he was 3, he might remember it but babies forget/forgive amazingly quickly.

    If you ask me, I feel he looks cuter with the hair cut.
