Her FIRST haircut


So Sophia’s hair has been growing super fast lately. I was loving it for a while there, and then it was like one morning I woke up and she had grown a bit of a mullet. The thought of taking scissors to my daughter’s hair was terrifying, as you can imagine, (a) because they’re scissors and they’re sharp and (b) because she has been bald for the majority of her life so it just seemed a little wrong. However, I decided it had to be done. So the other night in the bath, I snipped a little off the back while she focused intently on stuffing every toy she could find into her new bath tub basketball hoop (thanks Nana and Grandpa B.) I figured no one would even really notice. That night, Ross got home just in time to put her down. When he emerged from her room we had this conversation.

“Did you cut her hair?”

“Maybe… what do you think?”

“She looks like a little boy.”

Obviously I was stressed about it all through the night and into the next day, so I decided to put her in a little dress and tights and take pictures to assure myself she looked nothing like a little boy. I’m sure no one else can even tell, but trust me, she really was growing a little party in back before.

So here is my precious daughter in four pictures that probably look the same to you, after she had her first haircut.

Of course Ross recants his heartless statement.

Nice. It really does look pretty good. Ross' comment is priceless, b/c I can see myself doing the same thing. Go easy on him.

hey, I like it. very chic, if you ask me. and I've heard (so it has to be true) that if you cut hair, it grows back thicker and even more beautiful. I'm thinking about doing it myself. :) so no worries, way to be brave.

Love it. Not a boy at all. She looks all girl. And can I just say that I love her open-mouthed smile that's just shouting out how cute she is at me? I love it.

Boy? Not even close - it's like a chic bob. The mullet is a much more frightening option. So glad you prevented that. Tell Ross it will grow back, more evenly. Love the dress and sweater - she looks adorable!

sorry lillie, i gotta say we agree with ross (at least on the hair cut part). Brooke did say that the tights help, and of course anything is better than the mullet. :o) very cute...

I'm glad you are one of the few parents out there that actually cut their child's hair! I LOVE IT! That is coming from a girl who was pretty much bald until the age of three. I love short hair on little girls. She is beautiful, as always.
