The girls had their first real haircut this week and although they both cried through the entire process, they were very brave and let the stylist do her thing. Fortunately, it didn't take more than a few minutes to trim their ends, and then put their hair into pigtails, but it was a rough few minutes! I felt bad taking pictures of them crying, but it was a first and I had to capture the moment, even if it was a tearful one. They were fine right after though and even left the pigtails alone for the rest of the day, which I couldn't believe.
LilyKate went first and neither the cool new yellow ball from Grandma nor a cookie could stop the tears.
Eleanor clung to her new ball too, but wouldn't even look at the lollipop and cookie I put in her lap.
LilyKate calmed down and then watched her sister suffer through her haircut.
Eleanor almost done and look...pigtails!
Later that afternoon, both girls still had their pigtails in place, even after their nap. Back to their smiling, happy selves.
