10 Inches

Abby Kate has been wanting her hair cut for close to a year now. At first, I really didn't want to cut her hair. Before her first haircut, she had several loose curls and I was very sad to see them go. But, we really didn't want to see her with a mullet! So, over the past 2 years, she has had only one small trim. We've talked about her hair and she was really ready for it to go. It took Jason and me a little while to warm up to the idea. I finally agreed that if she had enough hair to cut, that we would donate it to Locks of Love. Our family, like many, has lost dear loved ones and friends to cancer. Jason and I talked about what Locks of Love is with her and asked if she would be willing to donate her hair. Of course, she wanted to help and found that through donating her hair, she could do a little something to help someone fighting through cancer.

We finally set the date, and this Friday, Abby Kate sat like the biggest little girl in the salon anxiously awaiting that cut! She beamed with pride as her hair was sectioned off and that first cut was made. Jason and I looked on with pride in our hearts and fought back the tears as we watched our little girl make the decision to help someone else.

She LOVES her new hair cut and has already told us that she wants her hair cut again to donate.



10 inches!!!


Abby Kate was SO excited and happy to have her hair cut!


Abby Kate's new haircut!






Abby Kate, Momma and Daddy love you so very much and we are so thankful that God blessed us with you. It is our prayer that one day all of the little girls, little boys, mommas, daddies, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, and uncles will not have to suffer through cancer!

I think it is just precious! Her haircut is so cute, and it is so neat that she was so excited about donating it!

I clicked back on your links to the 1st haircut and the mullet post....that was before I ever had even looked at a blog...3 years later I'm going through a huge bout with guilt about making you feel bad and post a blog that got EIGHTEEN comments....I feel that as a friend I should apologize. I'm sorry. There. :)

I guess that was before I realized the 'venting' side of a blog...

Hi! She is the cutest!

My oldest daughter donated her hair to Locks of Love last year. It made her happy to realize that she could do something special.

How special that she got to do that. I know that you and Jason are proud that she wanted to help someone else. I think her haircut is precious, too! It makes her look like a big girl. :)
