EC's 1st haircut

Hi, y'all! I finally made it back, and I'm still pregnant....38 weeks tomorrow. I have a doctors appointment this afternoon and I'm hoping to get some good news. My doctor will be out of town all next week, so I was really hoping Gracie would follow in her big sisters steps and come a little early. Early as in this week, but not the next! :) It's hard for me to think about anyone but Dr. Max delivering my baby, but I'm leaving it all up to the Lord. He knows exactly what will happen and who will deliver her. I'm just going to have to trust that He knows best, and I know that He does!!!
(sorry for this grainy picture, it was getting dark outside)

In other news, I finally gave in and made an appointment for Ella Claire to have her first haircut. I'm not sure why that was so hard?!!??! Her hair was growing much faster in the back and her sweet Aunt "Steppi" had nicknamed her mullet. :/  I knew I had to do something about that, but she had a few little curls in the back and everyone has told me, once you cut them they are gone forever! Anyway, I made an appointment and off we went to get rid of the "mullet"! 

It always takes Ella Claire a while to warm up to people, so the entire week of her haircut, I kept reminding her of what we were going to do on Saturday. I told her Gus and daddy were also getting their haircut that week and mommy was getting her haircut the next week. It's something we all do. So, when we arrived she seemed ready to go. She got to sit in a yellow car in front of a huge mirror and tv. It was a little challenging to get her to stay in the car at first, but the sweet lady cutting her hair had lots of tricks up her, games, and candy! 

Most of you that know me well, know that candy is a special treat around here. I save sweets for emergency trips, first haircuts, etc... She thought she was something else with that sucker and all of a sudden, she was completely fine with anyone cutting her hair.

All finished!! We love it!!

Daddy got a sucker too.


  1. Natalie, You look fabulous! Praying for you these last few weeks!

  2. So, even though I kidded so very much I am honestly a little sad that EC doesn't have the mullet anymore because it just means she is growing up way too fast! But on the other hand, I am so very excited to see her grow up into the sweet little girl God made her to be!
    Love the family photo-op in the back yard and the bench was a great idea!

  3. Aw! Praying all goes smoothly for you in the coming weeks. the haircut looks good :)

  4. Thank you so much for the prayers Amy and Nicole!!

    Nicole, so glad you can comment now!

    Steph, she is growing so fast! Glad you liked the photo shoot, thanks for recommending it! :)

  5. Seems I have fixed the problem!
