Week In My Life: Thursday

week in my life series thursdayCan’t believe the week is almost over! Abby had her first haircut last night! She is 2 1/2 so I guess the time was about right! She has loads of curls and being biracial, her hair is very dry so it was time to take care of the ends! In all I think she lost about 2 inches from the bottom but boy did it make a difference! She thought she was big cheese sitting in the salon chair and I almost cried! Here is how our night went:

fixing abby's hair

To make her hair easier to cut, we straightened it at home – well, as much as possible.  Mommy is so not a stylist.

The finished product at home! Thank goodness for Ice Age that held her attention long enough for me to straighten her hair somewhat. Of course we had it pretty straight at home but by the time we got to the salon (1 mile away) it had started to curl back up!

getting ready for first haircut

Getting ready for the first snip!


first haircut

Losing her first curls! Of course I kept them 🙂

some smiles

Some smiles for the camera! I think her favorite part was looking at herself in the mirror. She’s a vain one. She could spend an hour looking at herself, making silly faces, and dancing in the mirror.


almost done

Last few snips! She definitely got antsy by this time so we had to pull out cell phones to keep her still for a couple more minutes! I don’t know how she would have done with a stranger cutting her hair but since it was her “aunt” she did really well!

ice cream celebration

For being such a big girl, we celebrated with a trip for ice cream! She was so excited to pick out her own flavor! She went with “pink.” She tends to chose by color versus flavor 🙂


my two  loves

Playing with Daddy! These two definitely have my heart! I don’t know where I’d be without them!

    Aww, super cute!! I think I’ll totally end up keeping our daughter’s locks from her first hair cut too. 🙂

  3. Such a great moment to capture. She’s totally adorable! Glad she did so well (and glad you saved the hair— I have my kids’ too!).

    The last picture is so sweet! Love seeing Daddies giving snuggles.

    Love it. Two and a half years!? Moxie is 10 months and her bangs are hanging in her eyes. I’m trying to make it to one year but I don’t know if she’ll be able to see by then! Great post!

  5. Now, this put a smile on my face!
    …and gluten free! My favourite!
    A delightful post, thanks.


I love hearing from you!
