Practice and Progress

Addie has gotten so much better about allowing me to work with her hair. Granted, she is allowed to have her paci while I'm fixing it, but it still counts as major progress. She stays very still in front of me as I comb through it and twist it up into pony tails or pig tails. Yesterday I decided to try something new and see if I could get a small braid in before she pulled away. I made a side part, swept it to the side and quickly braided it. It stayed in place for the whole day (even through nap time!) and was successful at keeping the hair out of her face. I am hoping that I can try more and more ideas with her hair. As a kid I never really played with hair very much (I can do a simple braid on myself and that's about it.) I'd like to try a french braid, but I have no experience with that at all, and am doubting if Addie's head is the place to practice. We'll see what I can learn with her new found patience.
