Isn't this the cutest picture? She absolutely LOVED this chair and sat on it forever- she LOVED putting her feet up on the little ottoman, it was one of the most adorable things I've seen her do. Anyway, you can see that her hair is getting into her face. She has needed a "bang" cut for a long time, but I didn't want to cut them because it is a symbol of the fact she is growing up, and I don't want that as a mother.
But, today while eating Sunday breakfast, I finally decided to do it (I have a sneaking suspicion this was probably more her third or fourth bang cut, because I am pretty sure my mother-in-law has cut her bangs a couple of times while baby-sitting, which is a REALLY good thing, because like I said, she has needed it, but it has been difficult for me). Here is the end result:
Obviously, her bangs are now very croocked, and I think they make her look like a boy, or at least that she has the world's cutest mullet because the back of her hair is still long. But, I have done my job as her mother, and she has now had her first "official" haircut!
