1st Haircut

Allison got her first haircut** today!!! She did so good, just sat nice while he cut her hair. I took her to the same place Lindsey went back in January.


Some before pics:

And after:




Playing when she was done:



The back:


(See the DOG in the pic! Remember I told you he manages to get himself into so many pictures! Silly boy!)

Remember THIS look from Lindsey when she got her hair cut?



Well, Allison decided she could do that too! :-)




(Actually Lindsey's was a real scowl, Allison was just looking down and happened to make that face, she didn't mean anything by it.)

And how she's changed! Here are a few more pictures of her in China (this was 8 months ago):




**Unless you count this:


See how her hair looks blunt cut across the top - we wonder if her hair was in her eyes and her foster mother or nanny just cut it straight across the top. Or it wasn't cut, but just looked like it. So I will consider today's haircut her first.

Those haircut faces are priceless.

I can't believe how she has grown. The time is going far too quickly in that sense.

I can't believe how much she's grown in 8 months! That's amazing. I think someone must have cut her bangs like that. That is too funny.

Your girls are just beautiful! I love the hair cut pictures. They are just precious.

I also have a dog that seems to get into every photo. It drives me nuts because he seems to want to put his rear facing the camera. Uggh!

I remember the pictures of your baby girl. I remember when we all waited on our darlings! How she has grown!
