I can't even tell you how excited I was this weekend when, after months of trying, Tessa finally let me put a barrette in her hair! I bought a bunch of them when she was a baby, and it always made me sad to see them sitting untouched on her dresser. Until this weekend, she would rip them out the moment I put them in her hair.
So, this morning I decided to push my luck and see if she might actually let me do something more with her hair. And....voila! Her first pigtails! She sat so still for me -- I was shocked! Obviously, my technique needs a little work, but I didn't want to push my luck too far by trying to perfect them. Her curls tend to get a bit frizzy after sleeping on them, which is why the pigtail on the right is a bit wild.
So, while we were getting all girly, I decided to break out some dress up jewelry that I picked up at a yard sale earlier this summer. She loved her "bakelet" the best. :)
