Today we took Madelyn to get her first haircut. She's watched Travis get his hair cut before, so she was pretty excited it was her turn (she really wanted to wear the cape) We took her to meet Jay, the awesome stylist who has been cutting my hair for years.
Here is her haircut story, in pictures:
Notice the excited smile. Yay, a haircut!
Waiting. She seemed a little unsure of what was going on, but the huge mirror was interesting enough.
It was when Jay asked her to stand up that things started to go downhill. I don't know if it was because she really just wanted to sit in the chair, or that she realized he was a stranger coming at her with sharp scissors. Either way, a meltdown ensued.
If pictures with mommy in front of the big mirror didn't make it better...
Then a candy cane from Jay might
By now I think she decided he wasn't so bad after all. Still not someone she wanted to talk to of course, but he did give her candy
and a really cool spin toy
Next we went to McDonald's for fruit and yogurt parfaits (and possibly some french fries)
Here she dunking with daddy
And all was right in the world again
