Ella's First Haircut

Here is the before picture! You can't see very well but the back is pretty long...
This is her nervous face for when she is unsure of things or embarrassed...isn't it cute? She's had this same nervous face since she was itty bitty.
With the dum dum in hand, we begin! Notice she doesn't move her hand for quite some time and she just holds her sucker straight up...haha! She was concerned before we got there that it was going to hurt so she was a little confused and reluctant.
So long baby locks!
We took 2 inches off of the back and I got to keep a lock of her first baby curles :(
Still not comfortable enough to kick back and enjoy the sucker, but she's starting to warm up a little :0) This place had little TVs for them to focus on movies while they sit...genius!
Such a big girl...
Once the scissors were out of sight, she decided all was safe and chowed down on her sucker. She go a "princess braid"...
and a style...
and then we all made a big deal about her and she got a little embarrassed/mad :0) Not to mention she is on steroids for some bad bug bites and she highly emotional. So I couldn't get a good smiley "after" picture.
But I snuck a pic while she wasn't paying attention :) Pretty girl with a big girl hair cut! This is about the point I found myself unexpectedly tearing up because I realized I just cut off her baby locks! I know...it was needed and she looks beautiful...but it's just another one of those "firsts". So we quickly packed up and ran to the car to save myself from any embarrassing "highly emotional pregnant mommy who uncontrollably sobs" scenes ;)
Since she did such a good job at her first haircut and sat so nicely with me at the doctor's office...
AND was a good girl while Mommy ran errands...
We ended the day by taking her to the new animal shelter in Coppell to visit the puppies. She's been asking for a while to go see some puppies so we took her today as a reward for playing along so nicely!
It was the perfect first day of summer break!
