Hope you all had a good weekend. We enjoyed our last week at the Lake House until September (it's rented until then). Lisa felt pretty good and was playing and eating a lot.
We enjoyed the fireworks on the 4th and we're treated to another show on the 5th by our neighbor Scott. He and Mike did a 20 minute show from the middle of the Lake.
On Saturday I noticed some tufts of Lisa's hair on a pillow. I warned the others that it had begun. I noticed a little more yesterday and figured we probably had until the end of the week. Today, there was hair falling out all over the place, she was shedding worse than Chief. I figured Wednesday would be the day.
By 4:00, we were calling Matt...our good friend and Lisa's godfather for the head shaving party. He arrived and Lisa tentatively shaved his head. Then it was her turn. She wasn't happy, but she didn't shed any tears. After they were all done, she rubbed her head and Mr. Matt's. Later when she caught a glimpse in the mirror, her eyebrow went up and she looked a little surprised.
She's a baldy baby now, but still sassy and acting like a screwball. I just need to remember to keep an eye out for skin instead of curls when doing my headcount!
