Cut it all off

Amber and Elle got their hair cut today. Amber kept asking to get her hair cut and it is getting long and hard to keep out of her mouth and face so I thought why not. Elle has been sporting a mullet for a while now so I thought that we would try and rectify that since we were going anyway. When I asked Amber how she wanted her hair cut she kept telling me: "I want it all cut off." I am not sure what she really thought that would be so I helped her decide how short to go. I think that it looks really good on her. When it came time for it to be Elle's turn I was worried that she was going to cry the entire time and not hold still. Kandice thought that it would be easier if I just held her on my lap and she could cut. So that is what we did and Elle didn't seem to care one bit. It went so smoothly and without any tears. :) Now I just need to decide what I want to do with my hair so I can go back in and see Kandice. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.

I forgot to mention that this was Elle's first hair cut. Amber got her first one when she was 6 months old and Elle is almost (in 5 days - aahhh) a year. I don't know why but it is so strange to me how they can be so so different from one another. You would think that I would understand that they are different children but I guess I just expect Elle to be like Amber because that is what I have experienced before. They have been so different from each other from day one and it is fun to see the differences as they grow. Here are some fun pictures to see the before and after of both girls.

I love love love ambers hair! It makes her look like a big girl! I can't wait until Sydney can have a cute style like that!

I also love both of their haircuts and am impressed that Elle stood so still. Cam HATES having his cut! Amber looks so grown up and I am glad that you didn't let her get it all cut off! :) I think you should put layers in your hair and layer it around you face!

Aw, so cute! I love how Amber said "cut it all off" because that's how I feel when I get my hair cut. I always want to go super short. I have never kept my promise to Tom that I'll grow my hair out.

I personally loved the mullet style, but I guess it has to end sometime right? If I cut Arvilla's mullet she wouldn't have any hair, so we're hanging on for a bit longer.

It is amazing what a haircut can do. Your girls are adorable. Raising children would be a whole lot easier if they were all the same, but then life wouldn't be so exciting either.

Did I inspire Amber or is she inspiring me? It's time for Auntie to cut all her hair off tooo! Can't wait to come and compare our two do's in the spring.

Cute! I love Amber's new hair cut! You're making me want to go cut my own daughter's hair.....

You're lucky, though - my little girl didn't HAVE any hair to cut until well after she was one! I remember trying so unsuccessfully hard to pull just enough hair on top of her head for one little ponytail on her first birthday... *sigh* Thankfully, she grew out of it and won't go to school bald. :)
