Locks of Love hair cut

Today I took Emma to get her hair cut for real for the first time. Over the years I have trimmed it many many times, but never more than a few inches. Today we cut off 12 inches for Locks of Love. Emma loves her new hair cut and was very excited to give her hair to a little girl who didn't have any. It ended up a little shorter than I was thinking it would and have had to try to not be emotional about it... after all it is just hair, her hair grows really fast, and it will be a lot faster to brush and style which will be nice when the baby comes and I am trying to get her out to the bus on time.Just before the big cut

There is a lot of hair in her hand

She looks so grown up

When we got home I painted her finger and toes and used the straightening iron on her hair. This is the shortest her hair has been since she was like 1.

She looks beautiful!! And yes, so very grown up. I don't think my children will EVER have that much hair. Poor babies got my bad hair gene. Emma looks awesome! Love it!

It's funny because when a little girl has her long hair cut, she looks older. But when a woman has her long hair cut, she tends to look more youthful.
