It was pretty freshly cut then, so it's a little shaggier now, but you get the idea. It's a blurry photo because it's hard to find one of me with my hair down. It's usually in the typical mom ponytail.
This is the bob I like:

ADORABLE picture of you and your daughter, by the way!!!
I chopped my long hair off after each baby and I'm really resisting the urge this time. Until I lose the baby weight, the shorter hair just makes me look rounder.
I like your long hair and I say just get a fresh layered cut!
It's been growing out for four years now and is just past shoulder length. It's EASY! For me, it either has to be able to be pulled back, or so short that no part of my head has hair more than 1.5 inches long. This will be the first time I'm NOT going to cut. I've made dh swear to never let me do the chop again. It's easy for the short duration, and the growing out is awful. Fat curling irons and scrunchies are my best friends.
Good luck whatever you decide. I do think both styles are very flattering for you. What a pretty Mama you are!!
I tried to do it about a week before DS was born but the hairstylist apparently did not understand 4 inches and cut off about 4 cm instead. I was too exhausted to do anything about it.
Oh, and my DD loved the pictures of Anna and kept asking for "more Anna" after I closed the photos. She's very cute.
It is surely a cute haircut...BUT! Do you realize to get it to look like that it will take product and styling time.
You will most likely end up looking older.At that length-unless you are going to take the time to style it properly-you will lose your youthful, sex appeal, and end up looking....well, mommish. Specially if you gained a few pounds. I would suggest waiting a little bit...just until you feel like yourself again and hormones and weight have returned to normal. And make sure you go to a good stylist to get that look. Not all stylists are capable of high fashion cuts. Make sure you are sure they are in that realm.
Okay, maybe because we are all in the same boat with our pregnancies-I was a little more up front. If you were in my chair-I would have sugar coated it a little more. I would just wait a little and make sure you want to do it. You hair is pretty long, and easy to get back and out of the way. When it's shorter you have to style it-otherwise you will be walking around with bed head.
At this point, I would take it up to collarbone length, and shape it with long, soft (not choppy) layers. Just to take away the boxiness. Then i would tell you if you still want to take it short, we will do it at your next appointment.
(and I'm going to let a pro do it after the incident with DH and the buzz cut...
anyway i love long hair and never thought i would cut it. . . .and then i had kids. i think short hair is very practical when you have babies/toddlers. if you are looking for a change i think you should chop it off!! if you hate it, it will grow back. but go for something that looks good straight out of the shower.

Not sure if that helped. Your pic is great...you and your DD look so happy.

when megh was about 14 mos. or so i decided to give in and do bangs...i hadn't had bangs since a teenager. i was sooo nervous but ready. trusting that i'd be fine and it would look cute. i LOVED it. and the hairstylist i had put that curl activator in my hair and wow was i a cutie patootie. i am NOT a good stylist of my own hair so usually its thrown up in a pony tail. its just easier too...sigh......i should at least put that curl activator stuff in it or try to do the flat iron thing my mom's been doing to hers...wowza is she ever one HOT 60 yo woman when she does that. yeah...follow your heart and go for it.....hair can always be grown back. makes it easier when its shorter w/ little ones...that is for sure. i need my bangs trimmed and my hair trimmed too. i feel like blah. maybe i'll do that on tuesday. monday if aveda is open...: need brow wax too.
