Catherine is fascinated with Mommy's fat braid of hair:

It's been a loooonnng time since my hair has been this short.

The new hairdo:
By the way, this is a good way to freak out your husband! He did know I was going to do it, but that was sure a big change.

Oh, you brave woman!

But, it is going to a good cause. My thin, whispy hair never grows long enough for me to be able to share it with anyone.

You look very cute! I'm thinking of chopping mine off. The baby keeps getting tangled up in it!

Thanks, ladies!

I am not used to it yet. I still get surprised when I start to shampoo it. And I have to get used to wearing my hair down again. I was living in a ponytail most of the time!

Since I've been taking prenatal vitamins for the last 6 years most of the time, it grows pretty fast. Except when I was pregnant with the twins. Then it slowed down a lot.

Janet, I love your new haircut.. it is so cute. When I looked at the pic of you from the front it surprised me because we look so much a like after our haircuts.

Dan and Janet Brungardt said...

Thanks, Beth! I should have done it before Easter, then we could have taken a pic together.
