I have no idea why, but I suddenly got interested in how to do a curving braid in Ellie's hair. So, I used the power of youtube. However, I'm not very good at it yet, so every day is a new adventure and ends up with my doing her hair in new and slightly different ways. These are just a few of the many hairstyles I have played with on Ellie lately. There are even more hairstyles, but these are just a few of the pictures I've taken on my phone to document my learning process - and pride that I may eventually be a mom whose daughters have cute hairstyles! I know it's not really an important thing, but it's another way I feel like I'm learning - slowly - to be a better mom of our girls.
Probably the most elaborate one I've tried, this was Ellie's Valentine's hairdo. Post to come on that.
This last one was my latest youtube adventure in making a braided headband that goes all the way across the front. I still need work to get faster and neater. Thank goodness for morning cartoons while I do her hair each day!
But there you go, my adventures in learning to be more feminine. I have to admit, the whole thing is kind of entertaining since I still don't even own a curling iron or do much more than put ponytails in my own hair....
