The Big Cut

She did it. 
Alexa finally convinced me to get her hair chopped off.
I told her we were going to get our bangs trimmed and she said she wanted to get all her hair cut...short.  Part of me was like 'No way!' and another part of me (the part that has to brush her hair everyday, usually ending in blood, sweat and tears) was like 'YES!' 

So two days and approximately 375 "are you really really really sure?"s later we were headed to my SIL's house.  Alexa hopped up on the chair and was ready to go.  I was actually kind of surprised that she never hesitated at all.  (She must have been thinking about the side of brushing her hair everyday too.)  Even more surprising: NO tears...from ME!

And she absolutely loves it and that's what matters the most!!



I love it too, except for the fact that it makes her look like 2 years older. :(

(I just realized I never really got a good "after" picture, I'll have to do that today.)

Can't wait to see the AFTER picture...but, it is so much easier to care for their hair when it's a bit shorter...and she's so darn cute, I'll bet this haircut just accentuates her cute little face!
Bridgette got her hair cut a few months ago. Her hair's been long since she's been really little...and it's cuter than ever! I don't think you'll be sorry!

CM said...

Oh, it's still fairly long! She looks adorable!

Bethany said...

I love it! And I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures. So cute. She looks so big getting her hair washed. I absolutely melted when Becca got her hair cut the first time. She's begging me for another haircut. *sigh*
It's good to see you pop up again. I've missed you!

Sonya said...

wow! so brave for the both of you! I can't wait to see it all fixed up!

Wow...I can't believe she (and you) did it! I'm sure it looks great! When I was little, my mom wouldn't let me grow my hair long because of the brushing! It was super short and I hated it....this is probably why I'll be wearing it long the rest of my life ;)

She is so gorgeous! I love her new haircut. I can't wait to see more pictures of it. It looks like a style I would love for myself haha.

She is getting SO big!! ;) I remember just about dying when I first got Abby's hair cut short... but she was so cute... and then it grows on you... and when it gets long again... you are SO ready to cut it short again! ha ha!! the brushing... OH the brushing! =) I can't wait to see the after pics!! with a new baby coming soon... you will be glad to have less brushing and drying to do!! =) Actually I am about to have Abby's long hair chopped again!

I bet she is sooo thrilled. It's so hard when it grows them up so fast!
Such a cutie.

We did that with Grace about a month ago, she too wanted short hair. She got 10 inches cut off and donated it to lock of love. She was so proud of that since Paul is going through treatments for cancer.

I agree with you it changes their appearance by 2 years!

Tina Fisher said...

Wow! I think this was about the same time last year??? Her cut looks so cute! She must have inspired Jennifer Anniston! :)

She does look a older!

So cute!!!

WOW! I love it! Tis the season, right? After Disney, I'm really hoping Allie will let me cut hers. Tired of the snarl fights. ;)

and so proud of you and your pg self for not crying!
