Sniff, Sniff

We started a new era at our house last night. Nugget had her first hair cut. I had been contemplating it for awhile. Put it off. Pretended it didn't really need it. Realized I just needed to bite the bullet.

I remembered a conversation with my BIL, Chad, shortly after she was born. He, having only had boys up to that point, asked me what you always ask the parent of a new boy: "When do you think you'll cut her hair?" I just stared at him and said, "Never?"

Fast forward 2.5 years, her hair is getting long but there are quite a few split ends.

This was very difficult--and I'm not just talking emotionally here. She had a tendancy to turn her head right as I was snipping, Zita would come up and reach up, she would sneeze, etc. It was something else. It ended up shorter than I was hoping for but I think it looks thicker and better.
I'm still a bit teary about the whole thing, though. She's growing up and I'm not ready for it.


  1. Good job Mom,looks nice.Those first's are always those pause moments...are we really "here" already? *sigh*

  2. It does look really nice though. I always find that first haircut really grows them up. I like the new look of your blog :)

  3. I really like her haircut! I so enjoy when my girls get haircuts because it makes their hair look so fresh and new. I admire that you cut their hair yourself - that can be a challenge! Nice work!

  4. Wow! I think you did a great job. Lydia just got her 1st major haircut a several weeks ago and we lopped off 3 inches or so. It does look a lot better, but it was hard to see those long locks go.
