Haircut

The other day after I trimmed her bangs Isabella came up up me and said "Mommy, if you keep cutting my hair it will be short like Daddy's."

Isabella and I have been having quite a few battles about her hair. If she even sees me with a brush she starts to cry and I am very gentle. I asked her if she wanted a haircut and she gave me several answers. In the end she decided no. That is until we were able to open the video of Stella drawing on the sidewalk. When I asked Isabella if she wanted short hair like Stella she immediately said yes. I thought if she was going to let me cut her hair I would try learning how to layer. In the end she only got about 1/2 inch of layers but I didn't want to really screw up and make her hair really short. I wasn't happy but didn't want to go any shorter for now. Isabella and josh like it though so I guess that's good.

I was trying to take a picture from the side but at the last minute she turned.





Here is a side shot.

I'm sad to say that we lost this hat in park city last Saturday. we haven't told Isa yet. It was her favorite.

I still think you should go for chin length. It was super cute. Tell her the devil stole her hat.

That looks much better than the haircut I gave Stella a year ago. Technically, I think MA wants Stella's hair to grow out.

Soooooo Cute. Only four weeks to go, but who is counting????

I AM!

And Isabella could be bald, and she would be beautiful.

josh told me to not cut her hair b/c it would make her head look big. i didn't want to go chin length b/c she loves piggy tails. '

i wanted isa's hair grown out too. until it grew out and i had to brush it. i hope she gets better about it b/c her hair is to pretty and i would love it to be long.

I think Mom said the same thing about my hair and it took me until I was about 12 to actually see any benifit to brushing my hair (she tried keeping it in braids a lot) I like her hair but kind of miss her long hair. I could make her a new hat- is there something embroidered on the front top of it?
By the way it looks like you did an excelent job on the cut.

Uh oh. Stella is growing her hair long so that it will be like Isabella's, so if she is cutting hers to be like Stella we are all in trouble.
