I decided to take the girls in for haircuts to blend some things and even the rest.
We're going to visit the grandparents this weekend and I figured there would probably be a lot of pictures of them taken, so I could at least spare them SOME embarrassment later in life when Mady wonders why she had such terrible hair as a preschooler. See honey? Someday when you think I'm a mean mom you can know that sometimes I really was thinking of your feeling in the future!
This was Kaitlyn's first hair cut. I've been meaning to do it for a solid 6 months, but being that it's her first cut, that meant there needed to be pictures taken and that would mean I would need Mark available. And really, by the time he gets home she's not exactly cooperative. So, since Mady was getting hers cut, and we were already there I got Katie's done too.
Here she is before:
|(it may not look too different, and it's not. It's just more even and less ratty)|
|(Here's a close up - sparkles look weird on camera- you can see where Mady cut. Thankfully not too easily)|
For Mady's she decided to work with the NICU layers that were still sort of happening in the back.
|(Mady before. Not quite sure, but liking whatever was on TV!)|
She took a bit off the bottom and then just evened out the layers. It helped to blend in the side. She angled both sides a little too so that seemed to help.

Mady told me yesterday that she's not going to cut hair anymore. Just paper. Whew! Here's hoping her sister will skip this milestone!
