hah, I am in love with that smile!

I finally took the plunge and chopped Adelyn’s hair! I know technically it’s not her ‘FIRST’ haircut, because I trimmed the back not too long before this. But that was just a trim… this was A CUT! Like 3 or 4 inches! It took me so long to be ok with it. After I made that first cut, I instantly regretted it. I cried after it was all said and done. And then blamed the Lover for putting the idea in my head. (“look how thick the back is and how much it has grown since you trimmed it, if you cut it all then it will all grow back so much longer and prettier” hmph.. last time I listen to him!)

But after the advice of my friend Kristy (who just had the most beautiful baby girl, and needs everyone's prayers cause baby Scarlett is in the NICU =( ), I blew dry Adelyn’s short hair with a round brush.. and fell in love with it again.

Oh well… it all washes up in the end!
