I know my baby isn't a 'baby' anymore, but yesterday we did one of the last 'baby 1st's' that we'll get to do with her. Sara Kate got her first haircut, at 26 and 1/2 months old! We talked about doing her first haircut before her 2nd birthday but we chickened out and decided we weren't ready. But she has been looking awful shaggy, rocking the baby mullet and wings over her ears, plus we are getting ready to go on vacation so I decided it was time. My mom said to have some M&M's or something like that to keep her occupied so we made a stop by the gas station on the way. We went to a place called Pigtails and Crewcuts, which is a kid place.
Before (we didn't think to do a back shot until afterwards...oh well).
She got to pick which chair she wanted to go in...they had an airplane, a police car, and a firetruck. She picked the airplane.
She did so good sitting in chair, and we didn't even need the M&M's! I don't know if she was just really unsure about what was going on or what but she just sat so good and still. We talked to the girl about what we to do and she had an idea to give her a little bob, kind of like mine. She worked on evening out the layers in the back and she didn't really mess with the top any.
All done! The last thing she was going to do was get the hair dryer out to dry it to make sure it was even, but Sara Kate hates the hair dryer so she wasn't going for that! That's why we left with it still damp. But isn't it cute?!
'Cheesin' with Alexa, who was her 'stylist!'
They have a 'baby's first haircut' package that comes with a picture and a lock of hair on a scrapbook page, but since Chris came with his camera (of course!!) we just got a regular haircut and they saved some of her hair for me in a bag.
The back of our hair...very similar!
And here's our big girl this morning before church.
I think she's proud. She was swinging her hair around during lunch and pointed to her head and said 'haircut.' We're so proud of our big girl and we think she looks precious!
