When I met her at the ripe old age of 6 months, she already had enough hair for little tiny ponytails on the top of her head.
Within a few months, it was long enough to all go into two ponytails.
Now it's long enough to all go up in a big, poofy ponytail on the top of her head. When I make the effort to braid her hair after putting it in two ponytails, the braids are nearly 6 inches long. When I comb it out during bath time, her wet hair reaches down to her waist! (I have a picture of that somewhere, but can't find it....)
And what does all this hair mean? Why- LOTS of hair accessories, of course!!!
Today I decided to re-organize them and was shocked at just how many she has. There are:
56 plain barrettes
41 fancy (bows, twirly ribbons, etc) barrettes
15 rubberbands with fancy ends (plastic balls or flowers)
15 terry cloth bands with attached bows
7 butterfly clips in assorted sizes
(And a box of tiny colored elastics for braids- too numerous to count!)
Here they all are:
Now where in the world am I going to put them????
