Well, no shave, actually. Miss Emma had her first haircut today and Mommy and Daddy are proud. We took a trip to A Star Is Born in Mission Viejo, a “salon” specializing in kids, for the big event. Little did we know that the owner of the salon used to style the hair of children in movies.
Grandma Northcutt has been politely suggesting a haircut for quite some time, but Marla and I weren’t convinced. It’s been getting longer and longer and finally we had to admit that being able to see was a little more important than having long, gorgeous locks.
I think we were more nervous than Emma (“Gonna get a hay-er treem.”) going in. Of course, we shouldn’t have been. Emma was an angel and had a smile on her face for most of the session. The highlight of the event was when the lady cutting her hair let her play with the water bottle and Emma ended up spraying them both in the face.
Once all was said and done they saved several locks for us and presented us with the dandy certificate you see above. Emma left with flowers in her hair and a smile on her face!
UPDATE: I finally have all of the pictures from the day online in the “Emma’s First Haircut” gallery.
