I had every intention of being a good blogger this week. I had lots to talk about, fun things to share…and then I got the flashing folder screen of death on my laptop. Dun dun dun. Sadly, it doesn’t look like the old Macbook is going to pull through–so while we research replacements (and by we, I mean Chris…electronics are not really my thing) I’ll be borrowing Chris’ work computer when I can in the evenings. It’s gonna be tough, but I think I’ll survive.
But enough about my silly first-world problems…on to the all of the other “firsts” that have been going on around our house!
Little miss Arden Quinn had her first haircut (or should I say mullet-trim) on Sunday!
I know she’s a girl and will have to eventually grow her hair out, but I figure if we just trim the stuff in the back until the top grows out, she’ll eventually have a cute little bob.
Which brings me to this…Chris asked if I was going to make Arden have the same haircut as me.
She liked the salon from the start because they had a train table. Who knew she liked trains and cars so much?!
Before…just a little unruly.
I asked the stylist to “stack” it in the back and, believe it or not, she didn’t laugh at me…
Arden looks pretty happy about the haircut, right?
…that’s because her dad was right there with her favorite videos on repeat. This was key to getting her to stop swatting at the poor woman doing the cutting!
And ta-da! Clean cut and mullet-free 🙂
Not a dramatic difference by any means, but I think it looks great!
And of course, I couldn’t say no to the “first haircut package”. I mean, how cute is this??
The other firsts?
First trip to the dentist. Yikes! I wasn’t planning on taking Arden until she was 2, but after she fell and chipped small parts of her two front teeth last weekend, we decided it couldn’t hurt just to have them take a look. The whole process was pretty painless–I held her and laid her backwards into the dentist’s lap, and it took all of 30 seconds for her to check everything out. Plus Arden got to pick a toy out of the treasure chest….this was always my favorite part of the dentist’s office as a kid!
And lastly, why has it taken me so long to give this girl a popsicle??
She’s got some serious teeth coming through right now, so I thought this would be the perfect dessert for her poor, sore gums.
She liked it a lot, but also enjoyed sharing with Daddy. I’m sure he didn’t mind considering he recently told me that he’d been “waiting his whole life to have a kid whose leftovers he could eat”. Dream big, Chris…dream big…
Happy Thursday, friends!
