I posted a picture of this on facebook, but I just have to share it here, too :)
This week I put Ellie's hair in a side-pony (I don't know if that's the technical term for it, but whatever). Her hair is growing really fast (which makes me sooo happy), and I'm finding that I have to be very creative with how to style it.
The famous "Captain Morgan" pose. Hehe! I just had to throw this one in here :)
Yes, I understand that it's not an imperative part of her hygiene at 10 months old to have her hair styled every day, but I have my reasons.
1. I style my hair every day, why wouldn't I do the same for her?? (maybe this will change for both of us when our family grows, but for now this is what works for us)
2. Elliott often gets called a boy when we are out in public, and it hurts my feelings. (ok so it doesn't really hurt my feelings, but kinda! She gets called a boy for various reasons besides her Trump-like combover though: wearing blue, wearing red, not wearing pink, her name.....)
3. I want her to be familiar with having stuff in her hair, so that when she's older and a clip or pony may be necessary to keep her hair out of the way, she won't frantically pull everything out of her hair.
See, those are perfectly good reasons, right?! :)
