Ella's first haircut

Last weekend, we got family haircuts (except for me).  Ella has never had her haircut before - not sure why I waited so long.  Maybe I was a little afraid that her curls wouldn't come back. After finally finding some time, the four of us trekked up to Stanley Plaza to be with her for her very first haircut.

Joey did say he maybe thought we were making too big a deal to make a fuss over her first haircut, and I kind of agreed, but nevertheless...it was another milestone.  Buddy went first to get his mohawk trimmed up.  The hair stylist, Steve, even gelled it up for him and then took his own picture of Buddy on his camera phone. 

Next was Ella.  After watching how well Buddy sat for his haircut, Ella handled her first go very well.  The woman trimmed off about 3 inches and cut in some light layers so that her hair still curls.  Finally, it was Joey's turn.  Since the kids were done, I decided we'd do better to wait downstairs at Saffron Bakery with cupcakes to eat.  I must admit here...it was me who really wanted the cupcakes.  But I knew Buddy and Ella wouldn't be a hard sell.  These cupcakes were nothing like the ones from Magnolia Bakery that we ate this summer in NYC.  They were enough, however, to satisfy a craving!


Yesterday, Ella and Buddy got a package from my aunt Jady in Australia.  In it were two books -one for each of them.  Ella's book is called Ella Kazoo Will NOT Brush her Hair.  It's a cute story about another Ella who has very curly hair and refuses to brush it.  It did remind me a little of the battle we sometimes have in the morning before school to put Ella's hair in piggies or at night after bath time to comb her hair and get the tangles out.  
Ella loves her new book - I should know as I've read it to her about 15 times since yesterday.  It couldn't have arrived at a more perfect time.

The bump. You know it's knocking on the tum tum when the bump comes along. Kids look well; as always. Hope you and Joe are cruising through the pregnancy. You never know we may be there soon....ish... Lots of Love from Oz Amaya & Luke
