Haircut

Any one who has seen a picture of Livvy recently has I'm sure noticed her rag-a-muffin hair. She has very nice long hair, but she rarely lets me pull it back (so I have to pick and choose my battles) and she often has bangs covering her face.



This past Saturday I decided I would do something about it. Now, I don't cut hair really. I cut Marcus' hair, but his is easy. So I was a little nervous about tackling this "adventure." Not to mention that my first "subject" was a less then still toddler who would want to see what I was doing the whole time. With M&M's in my pocket (as random bribes to keep her occupied) I dove into it. I didn't cut off an ear, or have any quick turns resulting in catastrophic snips from my scissors (such as racing stripes.) Anyway, I think it turned out fairly well. We can see her again.


This first picture is from right after, and she is telling me she wants more. My guess is more M&M's rather than hair cuts.

Oh! She looks so big! I feel like a neglectful aunt for haven't not know about this until now. She is growing up way too fast. Next week she'll be going to her first Prom or something.

I think that it turned out really well! She looks so cute and a bit older with her bangs cut. Good job!

good job!!! It looks adorable! You are brave, I have yet to even trim Jayni's because I am scared I will ruin it!

Way to go, mom! That is much too pretty a face to be covered by bangs. She looks adorable.

Erika, I am SO impressed! I have been wanting to do the same for Megan for the last year. Whenever I try to brush her hair, she crawls on all fours and presses her head into the carpet. It's very effective. She always looks "rag-a-muffin."

Livvy looks GREAT! I like Jessi's comment. :)
