I did it. I cut Penny's hair.
It may come as a surprise to some of you, but Penny was born with a lot of hair. Still, that's the biggest comment we get from strangers, "Look at all that hair!" And now when I tell them I cut it, they're shocked. How can such a young baby have so much hair?
She takes after me, I suppose.
I started to notice that her bangs were getting in her eyes and the back was getting long, kind of mullet-ish. That was the last straw. We lived in Alabama, but she wasn't going to look like a hillbilly.
After a quick YouTube tutorial, I went to work! I snapped her into the Bumbo (yes, snapped... big thighs!) and sat her on the bathroom counter. I distracted her with her favorite toys, which helped immensely. Then I sprayed down the back a bit and snipped away! The first photos aren't the best, but I cut about an inch. Yeah, a lot.
And then I turned her around, gave her the comb to chew on, and somehow managed to cut the bangs. It was a little more difficult since she could actually see I was doing something to her now.
There ya go, first haircut! The below pictures are a little better. You can see how long it was getting!
