Alli's Big Day

Today was a big day for Alli. She had her first "official" haircut (other than a bang trim). I took her to my stylist at my salon and was so excited to do it! I have tried to prep her for a couple of days, telling her what a big girl she is to finally get a hair cut. This morning Dan took a few before shots:

Her hair is finally starting to grow in length, so I can put it up in pig tails (Alli calls them her "hair tails") but it was not at all even. So I asked Keri to cut it enough to even it out.
Alli did a great job, even though she had to sit in my lap to get the haircut. But she was quite content to just stare at herself in the mirror for the few minutes that it took. She was as excited afterwards for the sucker I promised her as she was to get all the compliments from the wonderful ladies that "oohed" and "ahhed" over her haircut.

So here is the after picture. You probably can't tell that much of a difference, but we can and it was a fun mother/daughter outing!

(Notice the side still sticks out!)

I love how the side still sticks out! So cute! I can tell the difference, by the way - it looks really nice! :)
