Caryns first haircut

1 Jul

Caryns first haircut

Apparently it is common practice to cut a babies hair short to make it grow faster. I don’t know if that is necessarily true, but i was told to cut her hair. It is rather warm these days ( nothing like Australia) but disgustingly muggy instead. Caryn, I hope your hair grows back quickly my darling, but in the meantime i will take photos of you to parade at your 21st in the future!

In other news we have started the decoration of our house. A guy is coming in to fix our old power points and install some new ones. we are getting super fancy and having a light switch in our room that can be turned off next to the bed so no fumbling in the dark from door to bed! so great! I will update again soon with our tile choices which were finalised this week.
