The First Haircut - The Event

I like to braid Abby's hair right after she gets out of the shower so it stays out of her face. In this picture, I'm pregnant with Cate and we are still at Pisgah. Aslan is still a part of the family... (sniffle)
I love to put her hair in sponge rollers also. It's so Shirley Temple. But it was getting crazy on the ends. Although there was great baby hair curl, it was difficult to comb out and it was just getting crazy so we cut it.

This is Annette. She was so nice about the whole thing. She let me take pictures and cut Abby's hair so quick we barely knew it happened. I did not save the hair itself.
I prepped Abby for days before we did this. I told her we were getting her hair cut and that it was going to be fun and look pretty and by the time we went, it was a serious event. Look at that serious face!

This is her hair all done being cut. Now, I tried to get a nice picture of her with the apron off and her all smiley and with her new haircut. She would not cooperate and you all know what it's like to try and get a picture of a two year old when they don't want it. I just gave up and I will post something soon when I can get her to stop being a booger.


  1. Looks great! And no, cannot paste Abby's cut off hair onto Cate's head.

  2. I love it!! She's got gorgeous hair, just like you!
