Amelie didn't have much hair to speak of until she was two. Here's a picture of her on the day we brought Violet home from the hospital. Amelie is just two weeks shy of her second birthday in this shot. Not much hair, eh?
When her hair did finally start to come in, even though it was rather uneven, I couldn't fathom cutting it off! We had waited so long for it! We'd endured the "How old is he?" question a few too many times to cut off the primary evidence of her girlness!
So another two and a half years later, today, the day, came. She was ready. I was ready. So we went ahead with it.
Here's the before picture.
And after. Not a huge difference. We just evened it up and cut off all of the straggles.
Being wet down. I love her face in this one.
The first snip.
The lollipop and Claire's Boutique behind her. We spent more on new hair accessories than the haircut itself, I think.
Here's to no more split ends!
