Today I’m sharing with you a tearful mommy moment and a Lydia milestone that I had to endure yesterday!
Lydia’s first haircut!
Now, I know some of you may think that’s silly but—the girl is only 9 months old! I never would have imagined I would be having my baby’s first hair cut at 9 months old! I thought I’d have a little more time than that to prepare for such a big event! Her hair has just gotten so long and there’s so much of it that we decided it was time to get it out of her eyes!
So it happened. And I survived. And it was super special because her Nana was the stylist!
And here is how it went down:
We strapped her in her high chair.
Nana wet her hair.
Lydia stayed chilled out. Just slouched back in her chair!
And here is the documentation of the first snip of my baby’s hair!!!! *tear*
Then Lydia became interested in the comb Nana was using.
So daddy swooped in and distracted her!
And she was happy.
So here’s my sweetie pie. Just getting’ her hair cut. No big deal. No crying. No fidgeting. Just sitting like a good girl and smiling!
*proud mommy moment*
She did AMAZING! She sat still and never got upset! She is the perfect little girl!
And it’s with great pride that I share with you that my 9 month old baby has layers! LAYERS!! In her hair! There’s that much of it!
This is what happens when everyone in the rooms claps for Lydia!
Just a warning: I’m makeup-less in this photo. So you can’t say you weren’t warned!
Here are the first few pieces that will go in her baby book!
No more hair in the eyes!
And then it quickly became nap time! She was tired after this event!
Ahh, definitely an emotional mommy moment for me!
And she just keeps getting more beautiful every day!
