Better than the last time

Have I blogged about how Natalie lately doesn't like getting her hair cut? I can't find it, so I must not have. Well, the last two haircuts have been crying fits, unlike the first two haircuts, where Natalie had a great time.

On Monday we visited my hair stylist, Lynn, just to say hi. Natalie did great, smiling at everyone there and having a great time. I sat in the barber chair with Natalie on my lap and we laughed in the mirrors a bit. Lynn gave her and Lukas each a balloon, we said goodbye, and made plans to come back today.

Today Natalie did great waiting in the reception area, walking up to the chair, getting strapped into the portable high chair I bring along...a bundle of smiles until Lynn approached her with a scissors and spray bottle. We decided not to put the cover thingie on to keep hair off Natalie, so she could hold a balloon during the event. But for some reason Natalie got tense and started crying. It was much better than the last two times, and she's happy to give Lynn a hug and a kiss when it's over, but we don't understand why she doesn't like it. Natalie likes almost everything else she does in life!

Here's the best picture I could capture of her new haircut...admittedly, most of her hair is out of the shot, but I like her expression--this is Natalie! And I think you can see that her sun-bleached portions didn't get completely snipped off. We're working on growing out the length a little bit.
