Long-Gone Locks!

Caroline has been pestering me for some time to cut her hair for the summer. So today, I caved. I loved her long, pretty hair and had so much fun fixing it and braiding it. But as Jake put it today, "it looks like she's always had it that way - it fits her." So I guess that's that! She loves it and was so good and still while I trimmed away this morning.

Before (just look at those long gorgeous locks!):

The "ponytail":


The cut - YIKES!


Examining Mom's work:


A little silliness (gosh, what I wouldn't give for lashes like that!):


A new do, an old ponytail and a little sass (I'm not sure where she learned the kissy face from...):


There is a good 6 1/2 inches in that ponytail and it would've easily been 8 1/2 except I wanted to give myself a cushion in case I needed to even things up, which I did. I can't believe her hair was so long, and now it's gone! At least it will grow! And it looks so nice & even now. But it's taking me some getting used to. Everytime I come around the corner or catch her out of the corner of my eye, it throws me off for a second and I have to remind myself that we cut it off.

I probably would have cried :-) Actually, I like Kate with her little bob and Olivia with long hair. I guess it depends on the child. I think she looks so cute with her new cut. You are brave I wouldn't dare touch either of my girls hair!

Caroline looks so cute, I wish I was brave enough to cut Abbie's hair. Maybe when we come out in July you can do it?
