wednesday, june 23

i had been discussing with jastin for months that i thought it was time for adali to get a hair cut.  this was met with immediate resistance.  he liked the crazy look that her unruly hair gave her.  i, on the other hand, was really sick of the piece in back commonly referred to as her rat tail.  i love her curls but i was tired of trying to figure out what to do with the pieces that were longer than the rest.  after "discussions" turned in to me simply telling him i was going to do it he pleaded with me to wait until he was here to see it.  i first consented and then realized there was no way i could wait that long.  i finally got him to agree that i could have it trimmed if i video taped it.  thank goodness!  i called that day, made an appointment and, well, the rest is history…and never fear adali is just as cute as she was before that day and she's still rockin' the curls….  

here is a before shot…

one word…crazy!

when i told her we would be getting her hair cut she was pretty excited.  she was such a big girl and just sat there and took it all in.

bye bye rat tail…


a few snips here and a few snips there….


as you can see, she is still less than thrilled that her sides aren't growing very fast… 


a little side pony action…


…a fabulous bow….


…a little primping…


…and voila!  my girl is better than ever! no more cute boy comments here baby!

i am so happy with how it turned out.  i might be a bit biased but i think she is as cute as ever.  i think jastin may have been afraid that the rat tail was the key to her craziness, and that by somehow cutting it off, she would instantly be "tamed" if you will…nope…still a wild child.    

much love,

mama a

    VERY cute! i wanted SO freaking bad for addi to have curls…knowing how crazy curly Justin’s sister’s and mom’s hair are. but nope. my crappy-ass stick-straight hair won out. boo.

    looks great adali! i’m totally NOT missing the rat tail – those are for jefferson county…not st louis county :)
