New 'Do...

It's been a long time coming.

Sassy has taken the plunge.

She's entered the world of semi-short hairdom.

Let me back-track a bit.

For several months now, Sassy has been asking us to allow her to get her hair cut short like LMB's. Her hair is much finer than LMB's, and I have been reluctant to let her do so. Especially now, before summer. The thought of going an entire summer without being able to pull her hair back into a ponytail is dreadful.

I finally had her convinced to wait until after her Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Birthday to get it cut.

Well, then it started to become annoying. Stringy. Yucky. She was getting yogurt in it in the mornings. Lollipop crust stuck to the ends. Yeah. Eww...

Finally, after having one last battle to brush it, and after reviewing this picture...

...I suggested that we go get her hair cut. My vision was for something similar to this, but a bit longer so that we could still pull it off of her neck.

Baby steps.

So, we gave her a quick bath and took one last picture of the long hair:

And, we were off.

I like the way her hair turned out. Just as I feared, she look so much older. But, it suits her well, I think. Do you?

We've had less battles int he morning, and she loves wearing a barrette every day!

She's my pretty, pretty princess, regardless of hairstyle!
