1st haircut

Natty has been sporting a pretty sweet mullet for some time now. Every time I do her hair, I brush the back and think "this would be so easy to just cut straight across and be done with it". But having no haircutting experience (aside from shaving Benjamin's head) I have never had the guts to do it....until this past Wednesday. Impulsively while Natalie was taking a bath I got out my haircutting scissors (why I have these, I don't know) and cut off the back of her hair. It was a little stressful since she was busy being a 20 month old that doesn't sit still, but I think I did an OK job. The right side is a smidge longer than the left, and unfortunately that is highlighted by the fact that the left side curls under and the right side flips out...but all in all, it looks alright, and when I have the assistance of Benjamin, I'll do a little further trimming.
Might I add that I now find her about 15x cuter than I did before that bath. Initially I was a little sad at the change in my growing little girl, but now I just can't help but smile and giggle when she smiles and giggles at me.
