Shayla's new haircut

As you can see, I've put a bunch of posts on because we had a very busy weekend!

This weekend we also got Shayla's hair cut. I tried to get her to cut it the same day as mine, but she was tired and cranky. So, we figured we'd do it another time.

Well, one day she had the scissors out and my niece Kimmie caught her with them before any damage was done. We then started to teach her that only Alyssa (my cosmetologist niece) can cut your hair. The next time she saw Alyssa, she said, "Alyssa cut my hair?" Alyssa didn't have her stuff with her (and was heading to work), so she said next time she'd cut it. Well, Shayla has asked for it several times since, so we had Alyssa bring her stuff the day of the Easter egg hunt.

Mind you, although Shayla was excited to have her hair cut, she was not very cooperative during the haircut. She just wanted to snuggle with me. I think it made her nervous to have so many people (many cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents) watching. We gave her a sucker to try to hold still, but it didn't work extremely well.

In any case, here is how long her hair was before:

Here she is being squirmy wormy:

And here is my adorable "baby" after:

We weren't going to get her an Easter dress this year but saw a nice, cheap one (with sleeves!) at Costco the day before Easter. What a little cutie we have!

Oh, and since I mentioned Alyssa I should mention that she announced right before the haircut that she's engaged!!! HOORAY! She is a hilarious girl. She announced it as, "We're mostly engaged." The mostly is because they haven't set a date yet. We are so, so happy for her. I've already offered to take engagement pics, make a wedding invitation, design baby announcements, etc. :)
