this is a milestone. most little girls get their hair cut when they are 2 or sometimes even sooner. but m has never had her locks come close to scissors. well not on purpose. when she was born we had a full head of black hair. which never fell out but continued to grow. the strange thing was that it grew in blonde and not black or even some shade of brown. so at about 6 months i had this very stylish baby, so the young women tell me, who looked a lot like christina aguilera. blonde roots with black tips. i think she was sporting some kind of cruela devil look. anyway, m's hair continued to grow and grow and grow. it has been down to her bottom since she was 3. everyday after her baths i would brush her hair, while she screamed, and then scrunch the ends and they would dry curly. it was so cute. now that she's 4 1/2 it weighs too much too curl. so today we went over to angie's for a trim. 1 1/2 inches came off. angie wet it so it would dry curly but there is no curl. i hope i didn't jinx it by getting her hair trimmed. we'll try again tomorrow. but m was very good and maybe she won't scream anymore. i won't hold my breath because it's still long. we saved a lock of hair to put in her scrapbook. she's so cute. way to go, miss mak.
