The First Haircut

As much as it pained me to do so, I had been informed by several people that I really needed to get Elise's hair cut. I waited so long for her to get hair that I really didn't want to cut any of it off! But, the ends were pretty uneven, and I know it really needed to be done. So I finally broke down, and Jamie and I took her for her first haircut today. We went to this really neat place called Cool Cuts 4 Kids. They have cute cars that the kids sit in while they get their hair cut, and they get to pick a video to watch. Elise chose Diego. I was a little surprised that she picked Diego over Dora! Here she is right before they got started.

She was really good the whole time. I thought she would probably go along with things pretty well, but since this was a first, you never know! We were really proud of how she sat still for the hair stylist.

You can see in that picture with the blow dryer, she was trying to look around the hair stylist's arm to see the TV. She really could have cared less that this lady was messing with her hair, as long as she could watch Diego. When we left, Jamie decided that since she was so good, we would let her ride the car with Elmo as a treat. He also bought her a Diego video. She is so spoiled!

I think her hair turned out pretty well. Now most of it is the same length, so hopefully it will thicken out and we will be able to start doing pig tails and pony tails when it gets a little longer. I felt a little bit sad as we were leaving, because I realized that I am running out of milestones with Elise now. Time really does fly, and I've been enjoying every minute!

Elise looks adorable! I hate watching the milestones go by, too!

I am laughing so hard because I have gotten all of Luke's haircuts from there. I had to cut him off though because he won't stop playing the video games. I usually spend about 2 hours there getting a haircut! I love all the pictures of Elise. Looks like you found a good place.
