Kitara’s first haircut!

In photography by webmeister Bud

Yes, she’ll be six in three months, and this is her first haircut. Kitara didn’t have hair to speak of for the first two years of her life. We weren’t sure she was going to have any. But, eventually, it happened. Which brings us to this historic day.

We got to keep a lock of her hair (not this one specifically). Don’t think it wasn’t an emotional time for us grownups.

Ervin, the lady who cut Kitara’s hair, was great with her. It can be tough to get a smile out of our cautious little sunshine at times, but Ervin managed it.

Here’s the before-and-after. Not a huge difference, to be sure, but we didn’t want to push our luck. Can’t be certain it’ll grow back, right?
