Impromptu Pig Tails

Cecilia's hairstyle from this past weekend didn't last very long, as predicted. It was looking rough yesterday already so after dinner while the boys were swimming at the Y I decided it would be a bath night....

I took a deep breath to mentally prepare for the adventure ahead. I then, predictably, wrangled a Limp Noodling, Planking, Broken Leg Crying baby into the tub. I was sweating by the time I got her sitting down. I have no idea why she is suddenly so against bath time, but let me tell you, it doesn't make me appreciate this special time too much (not that I cared much for it in the first place). Eventually I got her settled down and got the job done as quickly as possible. 

Taking the time to detangle her hair in the bath was not going to happen, so I got her ready and into the high chair she went. She got a hold of my keys and was so still and content. I decided to push my luck and start twisting up her hair after it was all combed through. I got a bunch of twists done that lead to a piggy tail before calling it a night. Who knew my keys could be so useful for doing a baby's hair?

When Bryan got home he asked if there was a reason all my car doors were open. Yes. Yes, there was a perfectly good reason.

So this morning we got the other piggy done during breakfast and voilĂ 
Spontaneity and patience. Two things this child continues to teach me :)

Check out those ringlets!
