1st Haircut

I love my daughter more than life itself, but she was starting to look a little...shaggy. Hair in her eyes, a slight mullet in the back, it was the perfect storm of hairstyles. It wouldn't have been so bad if Amelia would let me put her hair in pigtails, or even put a stinking barrette in to keep her hair out of her face. No, my child likes the unkempt look.

So, with a heavy heart, I decided it was time for her 1st haircut. It was a no-brainer that we needed a professional - I am NO hairstylist! We found a place that only does children's hair, The Hairy Elephant, made an appointment, and headed out.

Let me just say that neither Alex nor I had much faith in our child today. We can't get her to sit still for ANYTHING, so we thought there was NO WAY she would sit for a hair cut! And we definitely expected tears. From me and from Amelia. We were completely wrong.

Amelia was so good! The salon was super cute...the "chairs" are cars and trains. Amelia had a blast driving her little yellow car. Each station has tvs, and Amelia's already was playing Dora - it was perfect! She sat still-ish the whole time, and even let her stylist blow dry her hair AND put in a little Pebble-esque ponytail. AND she had fun playing with the boys and the toys in the waiting area. She even SHARED! She didn't learn that from me! :)

It was a big day! Enjoy the pics:






We got a nifty certificate with her picture and locks of her hair.

Photobucket far!

I know, I'm a slacker. :( I'm sorry. All I can do is promise to be better about updating this blog. To make it up to everyone, here's a boat-load of pics. Yes, Amelia is in her PJs in a lot of pics...get over it! We do dress her every day.

Guess who can climb onto the couch by herself!

What? Don't all kids relax in the laundry hamper?

Getting used to her new ride

Eating with a fork...she's been doing this for a while, I just forgot to take a pic until recently.

Tea party with Daddy

Talking on her phone, probably to a boy. :)

Modeling an apron that belonged to her Great Grandmother.

So...funny story. This morning I was working in the bedroom. Amelia wanted to come "visit." I had a 3-hour old (read COLD) mocha coffee from McDonald's on the nightstand. Let's just say Amelia got her first
taste of coffee...

All over her face and a little up the nose

My little coffee-addict

Let me stress that the coffee was COLD. She was totally fine, no burns, etc. She just smelled really yummy! :)
