Going, Going, Gone

Mattea's hair has been growing and growing - something I had been looking forward to for quite awhile. We can do all kinds of fun things with it BUT recently with summer, swimming, lack of time and patience, it has been starting to look a bit ratty. She has been putting up a fuss every time I sit her down to comb it. And anyone who knows me knows that I don't like dirty, ratty looking kids (and my child was starting to look that way.) I made the executive decision to cut her hair. SCARY!!

So there lay the pile of hair that once adorned my little girl's head.

Not the best of pictures (partly because she was so excited about her new cut that she wouldn't sit still to let me photograph her). But basically it got chopped up to her shoulders and now flairs out at the bottoms. We are still diligently working at growing out her bangs (something I'll never do with Paloma). So finding a cute hair style has been a bit of a challenge. But after being showered with compliments from her number 1 adoring fan (daddy) she now thinks she is the prettiest girl in the world.

oh how i wish my little braidyn's hair would grow! at her last haircut the lady asked me if it looked okay and b said "i want it longer mommy" so we had a discussion about how haircuts make our hair shorter not longer - so we're still letting it grow and it's taking FOREVER!!!

Love it! We've been tossing the idea to chop E's hair too :) Mattea looks so cute and sofisticated. really great job.

I fell off my chair laughing at the post about 'thank you for my sins'. So did Evan - he got quite the rise out of that.

Take Care, my friend!

You were right--she looks very grown-up! And she looks very cute without her bangs. We're wondering when Bennett will get more hair so he can get rid of his baby mullet!
