Here’s One For the Baby Book
Somewhere in my house, I have my Baby Book. My mom and dad didn’t keep up with it completely, but there are some things that are in there. One of the things is a plastic bag with a lock of my hair from my first haircut.
Today, we put a little bit of Ella’s hair in a plastic bag from her first haircut. Sam kept telling me that I could stay home and sleep because I worked last night, but I wanted to be there. I wanted to get some pictures!
In all honesty, her first haircut was just a trim. Her hair kept falling in her eyes, so we wanted to trim it up. She also had some crazy curls in the back that were trimmed up.
We had no idea what to expect. If you have ever taken your child to get a haircut, you know it can go very well or very bad! I know that I used to cry and throw a fit when I had to get a hair cut! My dad actually had a pair or trimmers and tried to cut my hair. While he had the trimmers on my head, I moved and it left one huge bald spot. The only fix was to shave it down to my skull, I was probably in 3rd Grade and I had the Curly Howard from the Three Stooges look until my hair grew back! Served me right for moving around and throwing a fit!!
Anyway, we went to the gal who does Sam’s hair and it went very well! She was all smiles from the get go!
Even when Mrs. Shari started trimming, she was still calm.
Did she ever get upset? Yes. I don’t know if it was because we were trying to hold her head still or what, but there was a total of about 20 seconds of crying and that was it!
Naturally, I had to get a picture of this! You know, for when she is 18 and I need pictures to embarrass her with….
All joking aside, I am glad that I was able to go to see her first haircut. She did so well! Thank you to Mrs. Shari for trimming her up. Maybe it is now time for me to attempt putting her hair in a ponytail again….
We have witnessed so many firsts over the past year. She is growing up so fast. We love her so much!
