First Haircuts

Today was a big day for Tamsie and Evangelyn, because they had their first-ever haircuts today! 
T started out the day cuddling with her taggie, or her "blankie," as she has started calling it. Please note that she's also standing on a book. They put their poor books through so much! 
E kept her blankie close by too.
After their nap, we got them all dressed up and took them to get their hair cut at Prescay Parlour! Evie loved the wreath on the door and said "flowers!" when she saw it. :) 
Hanging out in the lobby. Tamsie's on the left, and Evie's on the right.
Sharing a chair
They were so good! I think they felt like big girls in such a fancy place! :)
They were fascinated by everything they saw, and they kept saying, "Pretty!"
Tamsie went first, since she was in an exceptionally good mood in the lobby. (Evie was in a good mood too, but she was definitely displaying her independent streak! She made it clear she did NOT want to hold my hand -- which is never a good sign -- so we thought maybe it would be a good idea to let her watch Tamsie before it was her turn.) Both of us suited up in smocks first.

Here we are during the haircut. Helen did such a fantastic job, as always! :) By the way, if you're in Memphis and you need a good stylist, I can't recommend Helen highly enough!! She always does a wonderful job with my hair. She's also my best buddy Jennifer's sister-in-law, so you know she has to be fabulous!
Here's Tamsie's after pic! Tamsie was just wide-eyed the whole time. She never fussed once, which is pretty remarkable for our little drama queen! :)
Evie before... not really sure what to think.
She started whimpering just a little bit, thus necessitating the Wubbanub, but she was fine after that.
And here's Evie after with Helen and me! I took away the Wubbanub right before the picture, so she was too busy looking for it to look at the camera... argh! All the way home, this girl sang a new song she made up: "No more bus! No more ABCs!" Ever since she saw a school bus leave our neighborhood yesterday (which greatly upset her -- she didn't want it to leave!), she has been talking about buses and how they are no more. She gets very emotional about it all.
Once we came back home, the girls wanted to sit in their high chairs and look at books. Here's Evie with her pretty new hairdo!

And here's Tamsie. Once we were back home, she patted her head and said, "Bow!" -- I think she wanted to look extra-special since she had just gotten her hair cut! :) I also love that she's started requesting bows. 

Eating a snack and listening to a story

These days, when we finish reading them a book, they hold up a finger, smile really big and say, "No more!" -- which actually means "one more!" They keep this up book after book until we finally have to cut it off. I love that they love being read to! 
Thank you, Helen, for making the girls' first haircuts so special and memorable!
