Maggie's First Haircut & MORE!

Maggie was getting a bit shaggy in the locks, so WE finally braved up and took her to get her first haircut.  I say WE braved up because we have been dreading it and were sure she was going to show off her piercing scream in the place.  Surprisingly, she was perfect!  Of course she got to sit in a neat little police car chair and best of all, watch Elmo while she got her haircut.  She didn't make a peep; just sat like a zombie the whole time mesmerized by Elmo.  We were so proud of her!  While her haircut was just a little trim, she actually looks younger to me - I think it shows off her chubby cheeks.  : )

Anyway, after the big event we all went out for ice cream and then went to the park and walked to our favorite spot on the lake.  It was such an awesome evening - unbelievable for August.  She made a mess of herself wading in the water and Joe enjoyed just sitting with me in the breeze.  What a perfect day!  

This was her expression the whole time...
ICE CREAM!!!  We realized halfway through that she was eating the napkin too - woops!
Wading in the surf...
Finally looking at the camera.  I love how this picture makes her look like she's waist deep in the water.
Joe has been smiling like crazy lately, but we cannot get it on camera.  But, at least he's showing off his awesome blue eyes in this one. : )


  1. I am SO happy you had a good day!
    I think Maggie looks absolutely adorable with her new hair cut- and the pictures really show it off well.
    Kudos to her for behaving so well too. Joseph looks very cute with his blue eyes showing. What a fine pair!!!

  2. I can't believe how big they both are now! Maggie is adorable with her new haircut. I think she looks like such a big girl now. Joe is so sweet with his big blue eyes. I can't wait to see them again!

  3. Saturday night was our first big family night out. It was so much fun!

  4. They are both adorable. I love the new haircut! I really want to meet that precious little fellow....

  5. Her expression is hilarious! Way to be a trooper Maggie. What did our parents do without these kid-centered haircut places??

    Love the ice-cream cone, she knows how to eat a cone the way it's supposed to be done...napkin and all :)

    That lake and that sweet blue-eyed baby Joe.. A perfect little family. We love you guys.

  6. Awww... Mags looks so cute (and grown up) with her new haircut! And I love the photo of Joe with his eyes open. I can't wait to see them both this weekend!

  7. Man, you guys make great looking babies.

    Maggie looks incredible; really coming into her own. Her hair, so styled!!! Great cut.

    Joe - What a MAN! He is going to break some hearts with those BIG blue eyes. Lucky dude. He is delicious.
