149/365

Lucy 149/365

Annie 149/365

Today I am thankful for date night! It is so rare for us to get out on a date and I am very excited. One of my little sister's friends recently moved to town and we hope that we can start using her some for a babysitter. I have a really hard time leaving the girls with anyone and even tonight they are sound asleep before the sitter even gets here. I am just glad to have someone here willing to watch the girls that we know.

As you can all see, I got Lucy's long hair bobbed today. After seeing how precious one of her playgroup friends, Molly, looked after she got her hair cut, I just wanted to do it. We want Lucy to have long hair and will definitely be growing it back out, but it was just out of control with all of this wild new growth coming in all over her head. I really couldn't put it in a ponytail any more because there was just crazy hair shooting out everywhere. It looked terrible. So, it was down all of the time and I was just tired of it looking so thin and stringy. So I just took her in today and had it cut. It ended up a tad shorter than I had planned, but I love it and think she looks darling. Justin didn't want it this short, but I have assured him that it will grow back in no time and be much fuller and even more beautiful than it was before. What do you think?? Pretty cute, huh?

Okay, I have to go. I haven't even showered yet.

This child is so wild. She is in constant motion and now that involves all kinds of weird positions.

STANDING on her own! Don't worry, I promise Justin isn't dead. He just really doesn't function well in the mornings!

I am pretty sure he was really actually asleep here. Never mind the children crawling all over him. He can sleep anytime, anywhere.

stacy said...

Love the new cut - it's absolutely adorable! And what a hoot with Justin sleeping, or dang close to it, with the girls crawling all over him!

NeuroMama said...

Love, love, love Lucy's new do! I also love the photos of Justin asleep with two little ones using his body as a jungle gym. Too funny!

Mom said...

Happy Date night, you two!! LOVE Lucy's hair. She looks adorable. And little tiny bit climbing and standing and getting where she needs to be!! Love it! I made 7 or 8 dozen monster cookies. I told Katy I would hide some for her and you, if you are good, and if you are lucky! Dad and I have already done some pigging out. ha ha Hope everyone stays asleep while you and J are out! I'll talk to you tomorrow, unless it's not too late tonight. Amy should be here by about 9:30. Just love it when all my chicks come home. Hugs and kisses, Lee Lee

OMG, I loooovvveeee Lucy's hair. I have been wanting to cut Phoebe's hair like that, but I just don't think it is thick enough yet to lay right. I think Lucy looks precious!

Have fun tonight!!!

Shawna said...

Natalie said...

Lucy's cut looks great on her! I always love the long hair too but it really suits her like that :)

LeighAnn said...

Lucy's hair is absolutely adorable. My Addy started standing on her head like Annie was doing in that picture. So cute!

Annette said...

Luvvie Duvvie the hair cut. It is absolutely adorable!!!!
Hope you have a great date!!

Annette said...

I love Lucy's new haircut!!!! It is too cute! It looks like she really likes her new "do" also. I hope you guys had fun on your date night.

Glad that Annie is making such great progress.

Patty said...

What a great haircut! She looks beautiful, not that a haircut had anything to do with that!

Susan said...

Yes, she looks absolutely darling with that new 'do. Your reason for cutting Lucy's hair is exactly the same reason I had to cut Petunia's. That crazy new growth is truly unbelievable. Like Lucy, Petunia will be letting her hair grow out again. (I just wonder how much more new growth we'll have to deal with.)

I'm not much of a morning person either, but I don't have anything on Justin. Bless his heart! Also, I'm such a light sleeper that I'd definitely be awake if I had two wiggle worms crawling on me. Hilarious!

And last, but not least... I'm so very impressed with Annie's progress. I think she's going to be a force to be reckoned with when she's grown. Such determination and perseverance! Kudos to her.

Rebecca said...

Love the new haircut. Simply adorable! Hope you had a fun date night!

mimi lam said...

Such a lovely hairdo, certainly it enhances her darling looks, and expressions. I am certainly envious of Justin's ability to have a good snooze with all the movements from the kids, oh, how awesome is Annie's progress, such a determine little girl!!

Norah said...

It looks great! Does she like it?

Liz said...

Oh her haircut looks SO cute!!! LOVE IT! I have a feeling that a lot of little girls are going to be getting haircuts this next week after seeing how adorable Lucy looks. Even at almost 3, she's a trendsetter.

Very proud of Annie! She's doing so well and it's wonderful to see!

Dawn said...

LOVE Lucy's new hair do! I have been bobbing Katie's hair for quite a while, and it is now finally getting thicker, so I am letting it grow out a little. Very cute.

Ronja said...

Lucys hair just looks sooo cute, I love that length on her! It just looks so straigtht and shiny. And Annie really rocks!

Leslie & Shaune said...

i absolutely adore the new do on Lucy :) cuteness!!!

Laurie said...

OMG Kell, I LOVE Lucy's hair!!!!!!! It's absolutely adorable! For some reason, it makes her look like a toddler again to me. Btw, the pictures of comatose Justin cracked me up. I can't believe you 2 have been able to continue being "non morning people," in spite of having 2 little kids. I'm green;)

metaphase said...

How funny we're all commenting about Lucy's hair, like it's a big life change or something!:) It just makes me smile. We're all so girly around here. I must say, I think her hair looks great. I did something similar to Ava's hair a few weeks back. Her hair was nowhere near as thick or long as Lucy's, but it made a huge difference. I think it makes Ava's hair look much thicker, and so does Lucy's. It will grow back nice and even, I think. I love how sassy Lucy looks in the photos!

Nicki said...

awww, she looks darling with her little bob!

And those pictures of justin sleeping under the heap of chaos totally cracks me up. I feel his pain. That's me pretty much every morning.

Sarah & Seth said...

I LOVE her hair!! I have to do the same thing with Sienna's or it just looks awful. Seth really wants it longer, but until it gets a little more full, we are going for the short, inverted look.

sara said...

Her hair is precious!!! I love it like that. They are both so cute and you always have them dressed just adorable!

Ashley said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lucy's bob! It is darling- and it makes her hair look so much thicker. Molly will have a new hair buddy! CUTE! Can't wait to see it in person!

Sarah said...

LOVE the hair...she looks DARLING!!!!

Hope you had a great date night!!!

Kelli said...

Love the new do!

Dawn said...

WOW ~ I really do love her hair!!!

Kristi said...

The new haircut is darling!

My girls still have all that crazy new growth even at five. There are times when it looks like I've cut bangs -- and I haven't -- and if you lift up the back you can see a whole shorter layer underneath. Weird.

She looks so cute.
