Her First Real Haircut

A haircut for most four year olds is no big deal.  It is certainly nothing to blog about, but for this very special four year old..this momma is shouting for all blog world to hear..

My baby got her hair cut!

Boy did she need it!  She came to us shaved bald and so for the last two years it has been growing.  I have trimmed it here and there mostly when she was trapped in the bathtub.  She has never been too cooperative when the scissors come out and I am not a professional, but I knew there was no way she could handle a real hair cut in a salon.  Recently, she has been doing so well and conquering so much that I called to see if our stylist could get Jillian in.  She saw her today and cut her hair beautifully.  My baby girl was a champ.  I promised her that the chair would go round and round and so the first thing she did when she sat on it in Stacy's station was sign round and round momma.  I spun her a bit, gave her her favorite v-tech to hold, and stood back.  And wouldn't you know it..this sweet little treasure was FINE!  She did tear up a bit near the end and begin to feel a little stress, but we were done.  She got out of the chair, walked to the counter to pay, and left happy as a lark with the promise that we could play with the water hose in the back yard when we arrived home.  Another milestone reached!  Whew do those ends look 100 times better!  She got nearly three inches trimmed off and got the length evened out.  It has been months since I had even tried to trim it because it just got too long and intimidating.  Now we are headed to the dentist in a couple of weeks and there is no way, short of God's divine intervention, that it won't be a disaster.  So I am interceding on behalf of the dental staff, and my baby of course, praying that she will allow her mouth to be worked on.  We will see.  Until then, I am shouting for victory that we were able to get a real haircut!  WOOHOO!!!
Isn't she just the most beautiful thing?


  1. Absolutely beautiful! Good joy, Jillian! Not to worry about the dental staff. They are used to kids even biting them...just ask my Laura!!

  2. Oh yes! Yes! Beautiful indeed!

  3. Hey. Do you know a children's salon that has horses for salon chairs? I got a daughter who loves carousel horses and I wanted to take her to a salon that has chairs like that.
