Lalie's first proper haircut. Documenting the occasion turned out to be quite the struggle as this girl is becoming increasingly difficult to photograph. I did manage to get my 'smile' in the end, though. Win.

I'm still a little unsure... when it's straight down, she runs the risk of being mistaken for a little boy... so we're channeling a (very) young Mia Farrow and sweeping it to the side. It's back to little boy in about two and a half minutes, though. Lose.

P.S - Yes, she is completely drenched in water. Adamant on drinking out of cups (obviously not the 'sippy' variety).

  4. Cuteness. Love these little faces.

    Aila has still never had a proper haircut. Just tiny trims by me. Although i do threaten to cut it all off each morning when we have the battle with the hairbrush.

  5. Oh I LOVE it. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen such stylish hair cut on a one-year-old. x

  6. Beautiful! My daughter is 4 years old and I'm very hesitant cutting her locks :) She still has her baby curls. I think I'll cry the moment it's cut! She's growing up more and more and I don't want to lose my baby...

  7. oh my goodness, that is just so adorable. Love the 'smile'. We have the opposite problem here... Leo's golden curls make everyone think he's a girl. But I just can't bear to chop them off!

  8. Love it. So stylish for a bub's cut
    Dont worry about looking a little boyish, kids are so androgynous these days

  16. I have VERY few shots of my eldest daughter between the ages of 2 & 4 as she was "not a photo taken girl" & it broke my heart. I had to take candid ones & pretend i was just fiddling with the flash or zoom, she never bought it, too clever, many tears. Now she's a teenager, it's difficult again, blah.
    First hair cut is especially cute, love Posie

  20. Very sweet Claire, love the Mia Farrow look. xx

  21. Surely doesn't matter if she's mistaken for a boy? She's lovely whatever. Even without a smile. The candid ones are better anyway- more like life. Imperfect.
