One thing that I need to remember next time are to make sure to tell the ladies in advance that we don't want a lollipop for the child as a treat for being "good." We don't give treats, especially sugar ones, as a reward for behavior. I didn't expect her to get upset because we waited until she was ready to make the decision to go herself, but it WAS her FIRST haircut (besides the 2 times I've cut her bangs--once a few weeks ago, and once about 3-4 months ago). Anyways, she was very fine, a little shy, but no problems with a strange lady coming towards her face with scissors. She looked like she enjoyed sitting next to me and having them give her special attention.
So, here's Maiya's before and after pictures:
The "After" pictures are without a shampoo, so we both look a little choppy. Also, a funny thing is that most people don't notice my haircut (except for people at work who see me every day), but practically everyone notices Maiya's. They said something about it being her baby hair. So now, I'm wondering if evening out the 2 layers (outside long, inside short), will help it to grow faster and thicker. Anyways, here's Mommy's before & after pictures, the "behind" shots were taken by Maiya herself:
beforeBy the way, I just noticed that we haven't had any comments for almost 2 months. Is anyone out there reading? Or is everyone on summer vacation or just checked out? Ok, over and out. Peace, y'all.
