light reading for the weekend

I forgot to write about this last week, and since no one posts on the weekend - I mean you can practically hear yourself echo across the internet - I thought it might be a good time to share.

Yes, we cut off the baby mullet. I used to think it was cute, but it had gotten so long in back that she looked messy all the time. It is still extremely fine and flyaway, but we think it looks much nicer this way. And yes, we did it ourselves, which was a little risky but it worked out.

My little baby is growing up.

Oh, it looks so sweet! Your trimming skills are exceptional.

Ditto, Karen... You did a fine job on that 'first cut' - did you save a lock? I think that's why I've been so hesitant to cut SweetPea's baby mullet - it's the only ringlet she has. ;)

PJ said...

Very cute little haircut. They look so much older with neatly trimmed hair. I hope you are all recovering from the sickness, too.

Ruth said...

Such a cute haircut! That first haircut is a real milestone ... I hope you saved a lock of her baby hair.

Doesn't it make her look like she's 1 going on 14? Cut hair gives little toddler girls such a grown up look! But it has to be done. The mullet can only stay cute for so long.

I'm in the process of growing out Ruth's bangs because her sister doesn't have them, and while they seemed cute for a bit, I'm just not sure they suit her. But that means trying to keep a barrette in so that she can see, and it may turn out that's just not worth the effort.
