While visiting my sister in law and the new(ish) babycakes of hers, I got antsy, asked for a pair of scissors and snipped M a new pair of bangs. Her very first haircut, on a whim, in the middle of my brothers living room (but don't worry, I'm leaving her curly locks for as long as I can, because I'm certain, those baby curls--- they won't come back after sniping). Marlowe has been on and off with bows (bobby pins too) and letting me tie up her hair, for the past few weeks--- she ALWAYS wants it down, which is fine, I never expect her to wear a bow, but the constant hair in her eyes was driving me nuts. So we did it: bangs. At first I was like "errr was this a good idea?" But then the next day: we did it shorter. And you know what? I think she is just darling. And so much more grown up looking! I swear, cutting her hair, made her legs grow two inches longer. I don't talk much about M these days and her passing months. I've had a longer blog post about the 'terrible twos' or whatever sitting in drafts for about a month now... that seems to be the average for many (or at least some anyway) blog posts these days: two+ weeks in drafts before it gets posted. She's been growing, growing, growing. &Well, I just want to eat her up.
And her first tiny ponytail? Ugh. She was so little!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
