The Girls' First Haircuts And The World's Smiley-est Baby

After three years and hair down to her waist, we figured it was about time for a trim. It took some convincing, but both girls finally agreed that a little hair cut would make for less tangles after bath time and they would be extra beautiful for their first day of preschool.

They were all excited up until their names were called. Then, of course, Arella promptly flipped out. When I tried to carry her over, she began diving full force out of my arms. Meanwhile, Zoe marched right after the stylist and hopped up in the chair by herself. Since she had little sleep last night, I assumed Zoe would be the one to freak out. You just never how kids will react to something new no matter how well you prepare them. But I've learned that as you have more kids, the odds go up that at least one will completely loose it at any given activity.

Zoe sat there like she was being made into a princess. Not one drop of fear. She just seemed to be waiting for the magic to happen. Then she got sparkles sprayed in, and it was like the fairy godmother just bippity-boppity-booed her right into Cinderella.

Zoe was able to reassure Arella that it wasn't scary and didn't hurt. That plus a sucker did the trick. Arella did great from that point on, although she didn't need sparkles to feel like a princess.

Thanks Snip-its for a good experience!

And just because he is so stinkin' cute and let me take a ton of photos of him while the girls napped... I present to you the world's smiley-est baby in full force. You. Are. Welcome.

Happy Friday friends.
