Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.

Now that her recital is over...'s time to cut her hair!

Korri's terrible at brushing her hair or having it brushed. It tangles easily and she never wants it in a ponytail, which would help keep it from getting so tangled. Some times I wonder if she will end up with dreadlocks, it gets so bad.

But, she wanted to have her hair up for her dance recital, so we both agreed that we would keep it long until her recital and cut if after. I think you'll agree that it looked super cute for the recital:

But this morning, we decided today was the day. I made an appointment at Kid's Hair in Maple Grove, something she's never been able to do before, and off we went. She was as still as a statue (it helped they were playing one of her favorite movies; How to Train Your Dragon 2).

Before and after:

It is basically the same cut she did last spring but a little shorter (her request, not mine!). I love it and think it fits her personality...cute with a little sass! And I think because I had short hair a lot as a kid, I feel like she looks more like me than ever.

And now we'll probably have to start letting it grow out for her recital next year, but it will be cute (and easy to brush) as it grows!
