As soon as I wrote that post, I knew I wanted to cut my hair. Luckily, the vast majority of you agreed with me, so on Tuesday I went to my hair stylist and came out with eleven inches of hair in a bag to donate.

(As an aside, can anyone explain to me why hair is cute when it's on you, but as soon as it's no longer attached to your head it becomes totally gross?)

Anyway, my hair is shorter, it's curlier, it's lighter, and it's so much easier to deal with. I am so happy I did this, and with the warmer weather coming, I'm pretty sure my newly exposed neck agrees.

And Callum seems to agree as well, if his face is any indicator. It would seem that this kid has learned to smile for the camera--even when there isn't anyone standing behind it.

Fresh from the salon, hair straightened by the stylist:

And yesterday, after I'd washed it and returned it to its normal curly state:


  1. It looks fantastic! And could Callum be any more darling?

  2. What a great picture of you two! I love your hair straight...but I can't imagine that you have much time to straighten it with a kid. :-)

  3. The hair looks amazing! And Callum just keeps getting cuter!

  4. Gorgeous hair! And I believe that everyone should accessorize with a baby as cute as Callum.

    *Also, I second you on the hair thing. I involuntarily scream when I see my children's cut-off hair in the trash, and I am NOT a screamer.

  5. Love the new do. I didn't , but would've voted to keep it long, but really like it. Way not to listen to my thoughts! :p

    But, uh... just have one little observation.. I like the pictures of you when you are looking into the camera, head on, not looking up, with your chin tucked in. Seem to have a lot of those shots and you are so much prettier, head on. :] <-- awkward smile

  6. I really love it curly. You have such great curls :) And you and Callum are so precious!

  7. Eee! The top photo of you & Callum is ADORABLE. What a handsome boy. And the haircut is awesome, too.

  8. So cute! Oh, and the hair is lovely, too. ;)

  9. I love it!!! Every time I cut all my hair off it amazes me that my face was under there.

    You look FAB!

  10. Such a great look on you! It makes you look much more motherly (maybe because my mom wore her hair that way).

    How are you going to keep it straight?

    Cullam is looking adorable and growing nicely. You all are soooooo blessed.

    It is funny but I have been following your blog for three years now and I can't believe how much your life has changed. I still live in Joplin MIssouri and and ready to pounce and move on.

    I thought it was crazy when you all moved to Denver, and then the stomach operation, and now a healthy baby.

    Sending you all the possitive energy I can.


  11. Why do you always pose with your chin down in every single picture you take? You look ridiculous.

  12. you look amazing.


    and you have the cutest baby, for sure. seriously A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E.

  13. I didn't get a chance to comment the other day when you posted this, but I think your new haircut is super-cute! As is your baby.

  14. Love it! I don't think I've ever seen it straight before - so pretty!
