Confession: The kids have been home almost 6 months and I had yet to try a style on Kembia's hair. I really wanted to, like really bad, but after we had to cut it all off from the lice, it took awhile to grow back out. Plus, coupled with the fact that every time we pick it out she majorly freaks out, I wasn't thinking that it was going to be pleasant. And in fact, it really wasn't.
I had to do things quick, and because she still doesn't have that much hair, we did the little poofs. I think it looks really cute, but I kind of don't want to take her out in public where another person could see her because it is obviously amateur, and you can tell I had to rush it. I don't want anyone to think that I don't care about how it looks, because I do, but it just wasn't going to happen any better today.
She started crying the moment I started touching her hair. I gave her little things to play with and tried to tell her that mommy was making her hair look pretty and all that stuff. Overall, it probably only took a couple of minutes. Still, it wasn't her favorite moment. I may just have to wait until she is a little bit older and I can explain, and she can understand, that I am not actually trying to hurt her. Any tips for this?
Anyway, here are a couple of pictures for you to see. What a cutie, if I do say so myself, even if her hair isn't the best poofs that have ever been!
And she doesn't actually suck on the pacifier. She mostly chews on it if she should come across one in the house, which isn't very often because they usually disappear under furniture. Interestingly enough, she came with one, so I don't know if it was something she was used to or not, because even when she first came home she never really sucked on one.
