First Haircut

Ella Grace is a month and a half from turning three years old! I can't even process that really. It seems impossible! It has gone by way too fast. Today she got her very first haircut. As bad as I hated cutting off those baby curls, it was time (probably passed time). She definitely needed a trim. We decided spur of the moment this morning that today was the day. It was probably good that I didn't have a whole lot of time to dwell on it. Ella Grace was VERY excited. She kept talking about sitting in the airplane and how she wasn't going to cry. She kept saying, "I want to get my hair cut!"

Well, when we got there and got her in the airplane, she looked like this...

not so jazzed over the idea


Then, she began to warm up.



I love that Derek was off today and got to go with us.

Suckers always help.


She did fantastic. She is such a big girl! It appears she even still has some curls left in her hair. Here she is afterward. Nothing makes a girl feel better than a trip to the beauty shop! =)





The nice lady that cut her hair bagged up all the baby girls for me. We also got the "My 1st Haircut" package that included this...

Ella Grace has BEAUTIFUL hair!!!!! She is so precious! I know you are just in love with her!
Is that place next to Panera off Cantrell? I met Hillary there for lunch and saw that cute haircut place for kids! (if that's it).
I saw your comment and I was sooooooooooooo tickled that Derek would want to go to a game with us!!! That would be SO fun! We are in Gulf Shores right now and I'm going to miss most of the games this year but maybe one day we can do that! We would have so much fun!

Perfect momento of the event! I would tell you that that haircut aged Ella Grace by 2 years, but I'm pretty sure you don't want to hear that! Especially after your last post!

Oh the first haircut is so exciting, yet sad too! She has beautiful hair. They did a great job. She looks like a big girl with her haircut. I love the airplane. It is so neat that your husband got to go too!

This is a darling story of EG's first haircut and I love it better than a scrapbook because WE would probably never get to see it!! So sweet that Derek got to be there too!

She looks so sweet!

What a precious girl! I cannot believe she is just now getting her first hair cut...well, I guess Annie really could have waited that long. Ha. Lowrey had her first hair cut at less than a year old! That place is where I've been taking Annie and Lowrey and they LOVE it. Her hair looks just adorable now. I cannot believe she is going to be THREE!

How sweet is this! I love that they have a special airplane for the kids to sit in...brilliant :)!!!

She is so beautiful and such a daddy's girl. She looks so grown up in those pictures. Times has flown...truly!
