It took us 2.5 years to get here, but we finally made it.
Ellie had her hair cut for the very first time.
I have to admit, I cried a little (not a shocker), but you should have seen her face sitting in the chair, with the smock all around her, covering her entire body. All I could see was a tiny, wet head poking out of the top and eyes that wouldn’t stray from the mirror in front of her. She didn’t smile until Emmanuel was completely finished, and she was standing on the floor again, inspecting her new head of hair. I think she likes it, right?
