Penny's Hair

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.
Her hair is nice and trimmed now. It looks so much cleaner too. The bottom is even, and she has some cute bangs that I still push to the side. One thing I did bad was not include Brandon, so he was a bit sad when he came home and discovered I had given her the first haircut without him... whoops. But in my defense, whenever I mentioned cutting her hair, he said no! And that morning I told him I was going to do it, so he had fair warning. Believe me now, lovey? Haha.

There ya go, first haircut! The below pictures are a little better. You can see how long it was getting!
