Chiquita’s First* Haircut

by | Feb 19, 2008 | Baby News | 8 comments

* That is, if you don’t count the ringlet of hair she cut off last year!

Tonight, I decided to cut Chiquita’s hair. I am so impatient. I should have waited, and taken her in to my hairdresser, but I didn’t, and her hair is now shorter than I had planned… But, she is happy.

Ever since Twinkle Toes and I got our hair cut off, Chiquita has been saying that she wants “Doy-a” (Dora) hair. So, since her hair has been rather scraggly (it was super thin on one side from her own attempt at cutting it), and since she has been having a hard time keeping it out of her mouth at mealtime, I decided to cut it.

Here are a few pictures…

Chiquita anticipating her new hair cut:

(Can you see how much shorter it is on the left?)

I decided to try and cut off a pony tail from the back to add to her baby book… This was NOT a good idea. I ended up cutting too much, and then she saw the pony tail at the same moment that I said OH NO!!!! Sooooo, this resulted in her crying. No picture of this, sorry! I was too busy trying to reassure her — and myself, for that matter!! We both recovered.

Here is a picture of the back. It is slightly uneven… But, hey, I’m new at this!

And here is the front:

She was very pleased! As for me, I’m just happy hair grows! 🙂

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
