I am now trying to "do" something with Aaliyah's hair when I have the time and she'll let me. Bows don't work b/c she likes to pull them out and just leaving it down causes this wonderfully huge afro when she gets up from her nap (I'll have to get a picture of that)! I think we've finally found a hair-care routine that works for now, but here are a couple of pics of recent attempts at hair-styling.

******Disclaimer: keep in mind that my hairstyling experience involves only my own head. I've never been able to do anyone's hair but mine...and that's limited to ponytails.

First attempt at anything. Two ponytails on top only. This is from my phone, so you'll have to excuse the quality of the picture.

First time trying pigtails. I tried to swoop up all her hair into these two, but of course the back always falls down. This is my FIL's favorite.

I've also tried just the little top ponytail (no pics of that, sorry). Any more suggestions on possible hairstyles? Her hair is still baby-fine and I refuse to do any tight styles. Oh...and I need to be able to do it in the 1-2 minutes that she'll actually sit still before I have to hold her down! :)

i'm with your FIL, those pigtails are adorable, even if the back falls down.

i strap norah in her highchair with goldfish in front of the tv to do hers. no way i could ever manage it otherwise.
