Twist Update

I know y'all have been waiting with bated breath to find out whether the twists in Cecie's hair earlier this week passed the longevity test. Well, they did not. By the next day they were a sloppy mess (oh how I can't wait put a sleep cap on her to help protect my handiwork at night). I took note of the areas that seemed to fail the most miserably and decided to try again.

This time I got even fancier...she has two twists going horizontal on the top of her head, two going vertical on her left side and one that is going both vertical and upside down on her right side. That's right, upside down. Damn I'm good.

Ha :)

I've finally wised up a little bit too. I've learned to have the containers of clips, rubber bands and hair products open and accessible only to me (why this in particular has taken so long to learn I'm not quite sure). I've learned to put her high chair on the ground so that I don't have to fight with the high back of the chair to gain access to her head (a new seat for this purpose is on the horizon). I've learned that when I am really going to need her to be still, I can get prepped and then give her a bottle and I'll have a few minutes of stillness that I can try to maximize. And finally, I've learned that Simon is my best asset in getting her to focus on something other than her own desire to head bang (literally, she head bangs like a rocker making it very difficult to get this job done at times).

Anyway, here is the fruit of today's labor!

  1. Super cute! I'm impressed & she's lucky to have a mama that learns to do fun stuff with her hair :)
