mullety rat tail, begone!

Someone is too busy checking herself out in the mirror to look at the camera :)
A little blurry but oh sooooo cute! Mia was laughing through the first snip of her baby hair!
Proof that I'm the one giving Mia her first haircut ;)
All done :)
 When we found out we were having a girl I couldn't WAIT to give her her first haircut! Can I just tell you? The experience did NOT disappoint! Mia, my little girly girl, LOVED it! She was alllllll smiles the whole time! And she sat in the chair by herself the whole time! We had so much fun together and I can't wait for more salon dates with my little bestie :)
On the other hand, Eric was not as happy. The only reason I've waited this long to cut her hair is because Eric was having a hard time saying goodbye... to the mullety rat tail. "But this is the only time in her life she will look like this!" No dear, it will grow back over night. I promise! I would have gone shorter in the back, it needs to be shorter, but in the middle of snipping {hair) and snapping {pictures} Eric cries, "IT'S GONE!" with an accusing look on his face. It will grow back dear, practically over night. I promise! "You broke my heart!" So I gotta ease his heart into this whole we-have-a-girl-and-she-needs-trims-all-the-time-not-mullets-and-rattails deal. So like I said, I'm looking forward to our next salon date! ;)

Ahhh, these are adorable! How special that you were able to give her her first haircut and have these photos!!!

My son was born with a TON of hair and had a full on mullet rat tail by, like, 7 months so I brought him to my friend's salon to do the job. He used to LOVE haircuts. Now he's almost 3 and tortures my poor stylist friend, lol! We have a cut scheduled tomorrow to remove another rat tail -- I'm so nervous! Haha.

Tell your husband don't worry, it grows so quick. Mine isn't even 3 and tomorrow will be his THIRTIETH haircut. Yup. 30.

OMG. you are hysterical!! Shelby is getting a rat tail too, but that's the only real hair she has! I can't imagine cutting it!! :(((
Mia looks so cute!

Cayla said...

She is just precious! Look at those smiles. Glad she (and you) enjoyed your first experience :)

Pamela said...

Ashley said...

She is such a happy little lady!! So special that you got to give her her very first haircut!

Oh my goodness....look at that smile! She loves getting pampered by her mama!! So sweet. My husband is super sentimental about his little girls, too!! Funny how our big strong men can get so sappy about little things like...hair! haha

I LOVE that she loved it! I've heard far more teary hates it stories. This one is better to hear by far! She is soooo cute with the big smiles, esp love the 4th pic down =) Aria has herself a little baby mullet too. But, for now I'm okay with it staying since it holds the curls. First hair cut, so big!

hello erin said...

ahhh! she's SO cute! i love how she thinks its funny!! such a sweet happy girl!!

Tiffany said...

Yay!!! I know that you have been dying to do this to her hair! But it is so cute that he is so upset about it.

Hahaha Eric is so cute. I'm having the same issue. My daughter has taken almost 3 years to grow any hair and now it's all crazy (but still super short) and everyone says I need to cut it and shape it but I can't :( She looks so cute with her new hair cut though!!

Kim Matheson said...

That smile! Wow. I love this blog! Such a cute post - I love that you got to do this with her. Super cute!

Sarah said...

Oh my gosh! I love that the men are always the ones that turn all emotional about stuff like this :) Good job mama, going to be super fun when she gets older!

Life Happens said...

I can't believe how good she is for her first hair cut!! Probably because it was mama who was cutting it! Adorable!

Kirsty and Seth said...

I'm so glad you documented this moment! And Mia is so lucky to have a hairdresser for a Mummy. I cut Caleb's hair myself and it's not good, ha ha! Poor boy!

SO adorable and her hair looks great! Wish you could do my little girl's... she's finally growing some, but it's curly and crazy in the back!

Linzi Scarsella said...

This is just so so cute! I wish you could trim my girlies hairs :)

Mandie said...

Buh-bye, rat tail. Hello, cute haircut! She's adorable & looks like she was having a blasty blast. :)

Hannah said...

cute cute! how sweet that she sat there the whole time for you to cut her hair! And how nice that you can cut her hair! I'm sure that will save you a ton of money in the years to come :) ... wanna come cut my little guys hair? :)

Sarah said...

Aww! Too cute! Aubrey is 3 and she's still never had a haircut!

eliz said...

Ohhh first haircut already!!! What a brave happy girl!

Kimberly said...

Soooo cute!! And so funny because Adam has always had a harder time with me cutting Olivia's hair (and someday Axel's I just KNOW). Maybe as girls we know that hair isn't sacred, it's more fun when we try new things!

Elizabeth {Chasin' Mason} said...

So sweet! I love that she loved it so much! She looks so happy!

Sara Elizabeth said...

Mia is such a champ! Is there anything that kid doesn't enjoy?! I LOVE IT!!

Chrissy@SimpleJoysBlog said...

She looks adorable. However, I'm like Eric on this one....cutting their hair just makes them seem older and less like a baby so I have been boycotting it on Elin.

Ech and Will said...

I love that you were the one to give Mia her first haircut and I love that big adorable smile of hers!

Alycia Grayce (Crowley Party) said...

CUTENESS overload! :)

yours truly dear said...

ADORABLE!! I can't believe she liked it so much, that is awesome!! Definitely helps to make everything even hahaha...don't look too close at Henry's hair ;) And if Eric ever misses the mullet, send him over to play with George for a bit haha. #mulletsforever!!

oomph. said...

she's gonna be the luckiest girl to have a hairstylist as a mama...free haircuts!!!

Mason's Mama said...

So awesome you were the one to get to cut her hair for the first time!
