Harlie's Haircut

On Wednesday night, Harlie got a haircut.  Her last haircut was in January, I think.  And boy was she due for one!


She was really good for most of it.


Harlie has a TON of hair.  It is thick and plentiful.  And it is beautiful.  Just what I prayed for when she was a little baby.  I remember specifically saying, "God, you owe her some good hair!" 




Ta-Da!  It looks so much better and healthier now.  


Although I would by lying if I said I wasn't a little sad to see her curls go.  She's had those curls for a long time and we're going to miss them.


Here's her new shoes we got her on Tuesday.  Her old shoes wouldn't fit over the new braces she got a month ago (see the swirly braces?).  These are Keds and work great because they are really boxy in shape and so they go right over the braces with no struggle.  That's a welcome change!  And they're cute, too!


Doesn't she look like such a big girl???


Ahhh...and there's that smile we were missing so much!  She is back to being happy and we are all loving it!  Including her.  


Thanks!

What a beautiful little girl. I love her new haircut. She looked great doing her PT. So glad she is back to being happy. The picture of her on the bed reading looks like she is ready for school. Amazing.

It's so great to see her smile. Her hair looks great. And the Keds are super cute with the braces. I need to get new shoes that will fit Ainsley's AFO's. I'm not committing to using them all the time but will give them a try again now that A's recovering from the hip surgery.

God you owe her some good hair! Love it! Meaghan's on a similar hair cut schedule... with a similar head of hair only it took *years* to get like this... with a cut today. Here's to great hair that makes our girls 'XXX, the girl with the long/pretty hair over there'.
