Sasha's First Haircut
We cut a little bit of Sasha's hair at the hotel when were in Vietnam, but that was just a few stragling hairs to straighten it out. Today she and I went to a local salon for kids. The back of her hair was getting pretty long and I wasn't sure what to do with it or the sides. Since it is so straight I think I will always have to bring her to a place where people do it right. As opposed to me doing it. Sasha is in a stage where she really doesn't want to sit down or be held. She really just wants to be moving. If I hold her hand when she is standing she will take off walking so fast she is almost running so I have to slow her down or she will fall. If I hold both of her hands she is almost too fast to keep up with. So having her sit down on my lap and sit still through a hair cut wasn't too easy. The lady should have suggested giving her a sucker. I didn't think about that until after I left but that seems to almost always work with kids. Anyway, Sasha did a pretty good job of sitting still (for her) and the hair cut is cute. I hope her hair fills in soon to keep her head covered from the sun.
I took a few pictures before I put her down to nap. She isn't smiling in them because she was pretty tired. But I know her hair won't look as cute when she wakes up and I wanted to take a picture of it. Also, I bought a new lens and am trying to learn how to use it. I just asked my older kids to show me and they gave me a few pointers. I will probably be posting a lot of pictures of my little ones on this blog as I learn.
