The weather around here might not be spring-like, but it feels like it should be spring. The daffodils are popping up, trees are starting to hint at the beginning of buds. Which meant it was time for the ‘spring’ haircut. Both girls were overdue and I will be the first to admit, our experiment with growing Sophie’s hair out was a miserable failure. The longer her hair got, the more out of control her double cowlicks became. She has gorgeous hair, but it just takes on a life of it’s own when it’s longer. And if I had the time to blow dry it completely, daily, it would be gorgeous any length. But we go for ease around here. And for Sophie short = easy. Now with Isabelle, short is just practical. The girl is a wildcat and when her hair gets in her fact she gets irritated. So the bangs are an effort to keep more of her hair out of her face. I think she looks a bit like Deb’s Sophie now 🙂
I think both of their cuts look absolutely adorable, I love their sassy new spring looks. The girls were thrilled to have a haircut day as haircuts equal lollipops. And on this occasion, it meant balloons also as our stylist was sweet enough to give each of the girls one of her Valentine’s Day balloons. Note though that the excitement on the girls’ faces was not due to the haircuts nor the lollys, but it was lil bro’s brand new carseat that was the inspiration for all those smiles… they had no idea what was in the box, really who cares?, they were just pumped to have that big ol’ box to play with!!
P.S. Marathon carseats are on a great sale right now. I got ours at Baby Catalog for $209, no tax, no shipping. A full $70 cheaper than you’ll find any other time of the year. We picked the Crocodile pattern for our little guy!
