leah straight hair

miss leah has great hair.

people often think i curl it every day. i don't. usually when she takes a bath all i need to do is comb through it, comb her bangs and give her a decent part and she's good to go. if only we were all so lucky. she obviously didn't get her mother's kind of curl. very unattractive if not attended to.

this is what her hair looks like if we send her to bed with it wet. SO curly. then i can comb through it when she wakes up and she has nice, beautiful, big curls for the rest of the day.
lately her curls have been a bit unkempt, though. kind of uneven, albeit still cute. so today i decided to straighten her hair.

i have to admit, i love it. i did it about a year ago, but it looks much better with her hair long. i might do it more often. you know, change things up a bit. just shows how thick and shiny her hair really is.love you leah.

and if you're wondering: No. Backyardigans is not on at our house 24/7. I may or may not be lying about that. It makes her happy...not much else does.

Maren, thank you so much for the comment on our blog back in September. I kept meaning to write back because it really meant a lot to me. It's so nice to have someone who knows exactly what I'm going through and who is also at the very beginning of this "adventure". If you ever feel like talking here's my email: paula.palau@gmail.com. I can email my phone number. Leah is absolutely gorgeous. I am in awe of her beatuiful, thick hair! Oh and by the way, there was a time when the only thing that made Becca happy was her signing time movie. I know that movie really well.
