First Haircut

Well....it happened....I had enough of the stringy hair so I took LK to get her first haircut today! If I had known it would go so well, I would have done it months ago! She didn't even cry!


The "Before" Picture



"I don't know what to think about this, mom!"
(notice, Gus the cat...he had to have his hair cut too)



"Ok, it's not that bad!"


"Maybe even a little fun!!"



YAY! Happy Haircut, Happy Girl!

Big Girl Bed!

Well....we turned LK's crib into a toddler bed over the weekend. All-in-all, she has done so well!

We made a really big deal about it and practiced her staying in her bed and calling for us if she needed us. We also will find her when she's in her bed (and still awake) and praise her for being a big girl and staying in her bed.....it's gone pretty well so far!

She knows she is not supposed to get out of her bed, but she will sneak out stealthily and go get books and get back in bed to read (in the dark). Over the monitor we can hear her "reading" out loud to her friends. Tonight I decided to let her choose some books to put in her bed to help her so she doesn't have to disobey. So far, so good!


Here's her bed!

Reading, Reading - her favorite thing!
