Haircuts

It was time for hair cuts this week, or rather haircuts were way over due and I decided to do something about it this week. I had one of my haircutting fears come true. I was cutting Avery's hair and was doing OK but soon realized I was cutting more and more off. When I combed the hair in front of her face to compare the left side with the right side, one side was much, much longer. I had to just about start over and cut all of it again. Her hair ended up really short, but we actually really like it. Every morning when she would wake up, pre-haircut, her hair looked like she'd been rubbing her head back and forth over her pillow all night. Post-haircut, not so much. It's actually easy to comb and she doesn't get as mad at me, that's a definite plus! Ashby's hair could be shorter. She wanted it really short, but then wants to wear ponytails. So now it's long enough that it still gets in her face and bothers her but it's just a little too short for a ponytail. Looks like she's headed for a mullet, that's the only solution right? Here are the before and afters.

Avery before in her favorite place in the house. I like how she has pulled the computer monitor all the way to the edge of the desk. Apparently she has a hard time seeing it when it's back two inches....

Ashby before. We got these fun hats after Halloween, so she had to ride the rocking horse and sing at the top of her lungs.

Both girls after. For whatever reason they smile like this when I ask them too. No real smiles here anymore, just fake ones.

I'm just impressed that they are both looking at the camera; I am never able to pull that off. The haircuts are adorable!

Good work Chels, I hope next time Ashby will be sporting the mullet. It's only fair to Grace that someone join her.
