How does it make you feel when something incredibly amazing happens to you and no one notices? You know, like you get a new pair of earrings, you paint your toenails a bright, sassy color, or you get a new haircut and no one says a word?
This happened to me the other night and I'm really having a hard time getting over it. Really.
I got my hair cut. Just a trim, a little shaping up but still. A 1/2 inch is totally comment worthy, don't you think?
We all went to the airport to welcome home the Alexander's from Ethiopia and our newest nephew Abe.
There was a huge crowd. Surely someone would notice.
Everyone had posters that I was sure would say stuff like, "Love your hair!" and "Great hair!" and "Whoohoo, way to go hair!" But alas, I was wrong. They all said, "Welcome Home, Abe!", "We love you, Abe!"
I guess they were preoccupied.
Everyone spent way more time looking at the arrival schedule than they did my hair.
Our good friend Corinne flew in from Nashville to surprise Emily. Great, another distraction.
Look how close to me she is.
Then the plane landed and there was cheering, tears, hugs, and more tears!
Still, not a word about my haircut. Nada.
Lots of people noticed Abe's hair with all it's curly lusciousness, but no one said anything about mine.
He does have pretty good hair.
I guess since the first time I held him he 'fnuggled with me and fell asleep, I'm going to let the whole 'nobody noticing my haircut' thing go.
I'm dying to self that way.
And I'm in love with this little booger. He's so stinkin' beautiful I can barely stand it.
Graham's first question to Emily was, "Can he please spend the night with us, tonight?"
We're all pretty smitten.
