Yesterday, our neighbor Theresa came over to give the girls their first haircut. We started at 12:30pm and ended at 5:00pm. It was quite a process! The girls were troopers and are loving their "straight" hair. I can tell already it won't last long, but they love it for now. The process was pretreat, wash, dry slowly with a straightener attachment, straighten with flat iron, then cut. Oh yea, and then do it again on the other twin.

Time for Essie to get a wash

Essie checking it out in the mirror
Time to break out the movie to help us sit still
Essie's not quite sure about this whole hair thing

Before & after cut
Chloe REALLY did not like having her hair dried.
Time to start cutting
Love the "I'm so ready to be done with this" look
Chloe's all done!
A few twist by mommy for Essie while we wait for Chloe
Finally all done, but had to finish our movie
Essie's twists lasted less than 2 hours and she wanted them out so her hair could be down like Chloe's.
This morning, we awoke to MAJOR bedhead
