On The Issue of Hair

I have a beautiful little girl. She can really work her  eyes. She has great dimples and cheekbones. But, the issue has become her hair. It is, on the very best day, scrappy.

 But how do we get her to hold still long enough to cut it?! This child has been in motion since they day she was born, and walking just made it faster for her to get around. So now, here we are. Scrappy and happy, but not presentable.
So, I was brave. I took the scissors from Weston's haircutting kit and I cut. The first time, I could only get up the guts to cut her bangs, but then, I steeled myself against the possibility of ruining her hair and I took up my shears and I cut her curls.
 And now, you can see her adorable face. I love her smile. She is still scrappy and happy, but every now and again, she is also presentable.
Although, usually, the fanciest place Abby goes is the Dog Kennel, which she loves very much.
She can now say her very first sentence. 
"Doggie Go 'Woof Woof'"
I am so proud!

Oh, I really love that little girl. And the picture of her in the dog kennel with Callie is so durn cute. She just looks like she's having a blast! Can't wait to see her again.

As a former child and current adult with scrappy hair I have a special place in my heart for her!
