Deep Thoughts

There’s something to be said

for documenting that milestone

known as the first haircut

but it’s definitely overrated

compared with that other milestone:

the first red lollipop.

  1. That last photo looks EXACTLY like you. She is just deliciously adorable.

  2. wow, she’s already got that “come hither” look down. did you teach her that, or is that something she picked up from daddy?

  3. You don’t need me to tell you this, but MY LORD, she’s getting SOOOO big!!!And I’m with J.Lisa. I can’t believe how much she looks just like you! Gorgeous! 🙂

  4. What a cutie! She did so well. My boys were sobbing crying the first time they got their hair cut. Even lollipops do not help.

  5. My son always ends up with a snot and hair covered lollipop from his haircuts. Because of your post, I can’t wait to see how my girl does!

  6. Hey, my son had a haircut today, and he got a red lollipop. (It wasn’t the first of either, though).

  7. How precious and how amazing are the photos, you captured this milestone with all the beauty it holds. She will love these when she’s older.

  8. Darling! I must agree with the little lady though – the red lollipop is truly worth remembering. And the first Girl Scout cookie, first cotton candy . . . now I need to head to the kitchen.

  9. My word your little one is a cutie. I’m guessing there were no tears…lucky duck. Looks like you have many more enjoying haircuts in your future, so long as the world doesn’t run out of red lollipops (for our E, it’s vanilla soft serve). 😉

  10. So sweet, and she sat there so beautifully!My daughter (3.5) is umm, a bit less cooperative, so I take her to a kiddie salon where she plays on the computer during her and they give her the lollipop DURING the haircut. Hey – your getting hair on my lollipop! Hey – your getting lollipop on my hair! What’s a little sticky red gook between a girl and her stylist after all ;-). At least we didn’t have to tie her to the chair…

  11. LOL! When my kids were little, their suckers always seemed to be covered with hair, by the time we left the shop.Great photos!

  12. What a beauty. My son digs the haircut only for the sucker. He goes through a handful while in the chair..

  13. Wow, the end result was indeed worth all the documenting. What a doll. (Why don’t we get sugared confections after our haircuts? I might go a bit more often.)

  14. You’re such a good mom, taking her to get her hair professionally cut. Unlike me, who butchers her daughters hair with a pair of rusty old scissors. That last picture is too sweet for words.

  15. What a cutie! First haircuts – historic for us… “What’s the big deal?” for them. Except for the lollipop. That they remember. We’ve got LA Toddler’s lock of hair in a Zip-loc sitting on a shelf. It looks like crime evidence from a CSI case…

  16. you do realize that now that she’s had a lollipop you can pretty much make her do anything you want (or stop doing anything you don’t want) with the promise of another, right??

  17. She’s gorgeous–and I love the hair! Makes me look forward to the day when my girl gets her first haircut–it’s coming soon, now that her hair is finally(!) growing in 🙂

  18. My son’s most recent haircut turned out a bit askew. My mother-in-law refers to his new look as “the Hitler Youth haircut” – which is at once disturbing and halarious. The woman apparently thought that cutting all his bangs off would be precious. It’s growing back, but the lesson has been learned: Speak up next time to ensure that hair is not chopped like a hedge. 🙂 (you would think that I wouldn’t have to make that distinction, but my experience has taught me otherwise). Glad yours was better! 🙂

  19. *sniff* You got some fantastic photos. I can’t believe how grown up Thalia looks!I was unable to document Moon’s first haircut, as she wasn’t going to sit in Suspicious New-Person’s Chair without me. I ended up with her in my lap for the first haircut, the camera left on a side table.

  20. Wait, this isn’t fair. I spend way too much money on a simple haircut each time I go to the hairdresser, but nobody ever gives me a red lollipop at the end of it. I’m gonna complain.

  21. That is one great big beautiful forehead. No doubt, jam packed full of extra big brain. Wicked cutie pie!and a Woo-hoo your going to have another one!
