The Toddler Bob: Blaire’s First Haircut

blaire's first hair cutNow that she’s officially a two-year-old, we figured it was time we get Blaire’s baby mullet trimmed up into a little toddler bob. I was so scared to lose her little curls, but also so excited to trim off those ends and get a piece for her baby book. :)  

We went to see my hair stylist, Paige, who is the best! When we got there, Blaire didn’t want to sit in the chair on her own, but she cooperated when she sat on my lap. Once she realized someone was going to be combing her hair, she was so excited! The hair cut took about 15 minutes. Towards the end, she realized someone was using a hair dryer and needed Paige to use it on her hair. She seriously could’ve sat there all day letting her comb and blow dry her hair! So adorable. Since she did so well, we celebrated with her very own ice cream cone after.

I love that she now has a little toddler bob instead of a baby mullet. It makes her look so grown up! I can’t handle it. Her hair also seems thicker without all those wispy ends. I’m excited to see whether or not her hair seems to “grow faster” now, because everyone seems to say it will.

As with any new hair style, I guess we need some new hair accessories, right?! ;) xo

    Trista this is adorable! I keep wondering when my little one will have enough hair for a bow so I can’t even imagine when she will get her first hair cut. But I can’t wait to experience it! Thanks for sharing.

    Awww, she looks beautiful. I went through this with my 2 year old too! The baby mullet definitely had to go. It was a strange mixture of sadness and relief.

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
