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.
