Our Family Got a Haircut!

When I was growing up my dad cut my three brothers' hair (usually on a Saturday night) and my aunt Mary (a professional) gave us three girls and my mom haircuts and perms (during the same trip to Salt Lake). We always got our hair cut together.

It had been eleven months since I'd had my hair trimmed and twenty years since I'd had bangs, so I got both. Mindy Uhlig is set up now as the local beautician in Wells so Liliana and I left the boys home on Saturday afternoon and got our hair cut. I'm trying to get used to having something on my forehead and still don't know how I feel about my new look. Anyway, our haircuts coincided with Edgar cutting Ruben's hair so our family got a haircut.

Our other big news is that Marcos is starting to dribble cereal down his chin (I can't say he's starting to eat it because none of it is getting inside him). I only try to give him a few bites every night, but Liliana is more persistent. Our first night of solid food, I came out from giving Ruben a bath to find this:

There's just something about feeding a baby that makes you open your mouth really wide.

Marcos enjoyed the experience--socially, not nutritively (is that a word?).

Here's Lili doing math. I love that I don't have to fix her hair before school.

You all look adorable with your new cuts. I like the bangs on the girls! You guys are adorable.

I like the haircuts. You look SO different! I hope I don't walk right past you and not recognize you when I see you next. I'll have to remind myself to look for freakishly long legs.

I love're still the pretty sister.
