summer ‘dos and new teeth

As a family home evening activity we decided to give the girls a haircut. I’ve been the girls’ beauty stylist since their first haircut and will probably continue to be until they are old enough to notice that I don’t do that great of a job. My initial thought was to just “trim” the girls’ hair, but I got a little overzealous with the scissors and pretty much lopped off their locks. I was actually sick about it at first, but then when I saw how thrilled both girls were with their new ‘dos I couldn’t help but be happy for them. I actually think their new coifs suit them. The fact that it is so much easier to brush their hair each day is also a huge plus.

Here they are fresh after their cuts.

As you can see, Annie’s is quite a bit shorter when all dried out. Cute though.

Violet was feeling left out. Since she can’t get her hair cut yet, I thought I’d put a bow in her hair instead. She had it back out in 10 seconds flat.

In other news, Violet now has four bitty teeth growing in. She has had the most difficulty with them as compared to all my kids. Fevers, fussiness, sleepless nights, and clinginess. Who knows if all this completely attributed to the new toofers, but I refuse to believe that my perfect baby is permanently changing into a stinker.

Violet is also venturing into the world of eating solid, finger foods. I have to say that Violet is my pickiest baby yet. She won’t dare even touch scrambled eggs, macaroni, or carrots. Graham crackers are fine though. But throw down some cat fur, and she’s in pure heaven.
