Last week was a bit of reality check as hubby returned to work/school on Monday, so it was just me and Little M at home during the day. We’ve mostly spent the week trying to dodge the rain showers and get out of the house and down to the park as much as possible.
Little M has definitely been missing her daddy, but it’s been interesting to see that she’s become more attached to me again, now that the holidays are over. I seem to be back in favour again! Little M wants lots of cuddles and kisses and doesn’t like it if I’m not right next to her. As in sitting on the floor next to her, even if she’s totally ignoring me and playing with something else!
On Tuesday we experienced a major milestone. Little M had her very first hair cut! This isn’t the best photograph, but I had to take it as a selfie with my free arm as Little M was sitting on my lap, so it was the best I could do. I think it captures her feelings of trepidation, though. After I had taken this, I had to abandon my phone and let her stand up on my lap cuddling me, as she was so worried about what was going on.
As usual, Little M was very good, though, and didn’t try to bat the hairdresser away. She just clung onto me and let her get on with it! I’m not sure that her hair cut has made too much of a difference to Little M’s overall look, but it looks a bit neater and I’m hoping it will start to thicken up now. I’m excited to see in future what her hair style will be like!
We kept some locks of her hair as a keepsake but I have no idea what to do with them….any suggestions?!
