A Big Week: First Snow and First Haircut!

It's been a pretty big week around here....and it's only Tuesday!  Aniston has experienced two "firsts" in the last few days--her first snow AND her first haircut! 

It snowed on Saturday.  This may not be a big deal where you're from, but here in the south, snow is major.  We didn't have ANY snow last year (huge waste of a baby snowsuit, by the way) and hadn't had any this year until Saturday.  It didn't really cover the ground, and it didn't last long at all (less than a day), but it was pretty while it was falling and it gave the princess an opportunity to play.  We bundled her up and let her experience snow for the first time!

 Aniston liked the snow, but said, "Eww!" any time it stuck to her gloves.
 
 
We made tiny snowmen. (I told you there wasn't much snow, remember?) Aniston had fun petting them and then carried one of them around like a baby! Too cute!


 Papa and Papaw were so excited to pull Aniston in a sled....even if there was only a little snow on the ground.  Bless them.
 
It was a fun day, and I'm glad we were able to get a little use out of this year's snowsuit! :)

Today was another exciting day--Aniston had her first hair appointment this afternoon!  She did so well!  I was really impressed...and relieved!  Ha!  We had made an effort to really talk it up over the last few days, so she knew what to expect and was excited.  We had to wait for a few minutes for Cari to finish with another client.  It was hard to keep Aniston still because she was READY!  When she was finished, Aniston made a beeline for her.  She let Cari pick her up and put her in the chair without any fuss, and was great through the entire cut.  Toward the end, she got a little restless and had to be bribed with nummies (fruit snacks), but I could handle that.  After she finished, she gave Cari a big hug and kiss, so I would say the appointment was a success!
