Elle's first haircut

Elle had her first haircut on Monday. Since I am terrible about remembering to bring my camera to even the most important of events my mom came along to take pictures. She also made the appointment for the haircut, paid for the haircut and make a scrapbook page documenting the event. Without my mom my kids would spend their whole life looking like ragamuffins and having no pitures to remember it all with.

This woman cuts my mom's hair, she cuts my hair (on the rare occasion I drag my rear in to see her) and now she's cutting Elle's hair. She even did my hair on my wedding day. She's like our own little family tradition.
As you can see, the cape didn't last too long. I don't think Elle liked not being able to see her hands. I'm looking pretty raggedy and intense here. I'm not sure what that's all about. Joseph was so cute when we first got back to the chair. He said things like "It's ok Elle, you don't have to be scared! You've seen me get myhaircut. It will all be ok!" Such a good brother.
She's looking a little worried right here. I think she's upset that this picture shows the bruise she has on her chin and thebug bites on her forehead. That's my dainty little princess.
Here she is admiring the results. She seemed very pleased with the final look. I have to admit, it is pretty cute now that all the stray scraggly strands are gone. She's a cute girl.
And now, some love for mama. Awwwww! That's my girl!
