Lily's FIRST haircut!

Well, not a full on haircut, but a trim!
It was time. I was sick of food getting in the ends of her hair and her crying whenever I comb her hair! I just wanted to take a little off the ends-and she has great curls at the end and they were starting to go away! Anyway, she did an amazing job! I was really worried on how she'd react to a complete stranger (to her, not me) cutting her hair, but she just sat there. No crying, not even saying to me "hold you" (her way of wanting me to hold her!), nothing. She was a gem! Here's some fun pictures:

Smiling as she was just getting started! Janna (my hairdresser) was so good with her and let Lily pick out her own cape and everything.

She's zoning out! I had a sucker for a back-up in case she started to freak out. Apparently she'd never had a sucker before, because she didn't know how to lick it! I showed her over and over and she'd kinda put her mouth on it. But she mainly just held it in her hand. It's hard to see, but it's in her left hand!

How she "sucked" on her sucker! She'd basically just put her lips to it and kinda kiss it. It was hilarious!

After her hair was done being cut, Janna wanted to try curling her hair. I said to her "good luck!" I've tried before but she hates it. But does she hate it when a complete stranger does it? Of course not! I was amazed. She just kept staring at herself in the mirror! This girl can be so strange to me sometimes! :)

The finished look! Isn't she adorable?!! I love her cheesy smile and the fact that she's still just holding her sucker!

Another cheesy smile, but at least she's looking at the camera! And half of my mom's face-sorry about that! She brought Lily because I was already there getting my hair done and afterwards just took her back to her house for a nap. I also think Lily did so well because her appt. wasn't until 1 pm-which is when she goes down for a nap! But she was in and out in 15 minutes! I'm hoping I'll be able to curl her hair one of these days! I'm so proud of her for doing so well!

Oh it turned out so cute! I love how Janna curled it! And I'm thankful for your sake that Lily cooperated! Of course that is alwasy what happens when somebody else is doing it and not her mommy! :)

Very cute!!!
Children are strange creatures sometimes, aren't they?:) But oh how we love them!!

I have several kids in need of haircuts. Mine could use it as well. So much to do, so little time...:)

I love how her hair turned adorable! And the curls are precious! I used to get my hair cut there too until my lady left. :(

Fun times. The curls are beautiful!

Her hair turned out adorable and that's great that she was so good! Your lucky her hair holds curl - Hannah's won't hold anything at all, even with a ton of hairspray. :( I just got her hair cut yesterday and she held really still too - isn't it amazing what they do for others...? :)
