{Sock Hair}

We have recently found a huge time saver for Addy's hair: sock curlers!  She loves her hair curly...begs for it...and hot rollers work...but you wouldn't even know we made the effort about 2 hours later. The curl never stays!  And then there are sponge curlers, which definitely work.  But then she looks like Shirley Temple in the morning and it has to go back in a pony tail in order to avoid a total frizz fest.  So, when we discovered this new method of using socks as was a good day!  We roll and tie her hair up with the socks while her hair is still damp and the next day she has soft, flowing curls that last much longer.  And are much easier to sleep on at night than sponge curlers and no chance of getting burned as with hot rollers.  Carson gave her a hard time at first, but she thinks it is well worth the price of pretty hair on Sunday!  She's a girly girl that's for sure!  I'll post a finished product soon.

And a little side note on these PJ bottoms.  Guess what size?  I was shocked when I checked and they were size 12 months!  She has been wearing these bottoms for over 4 years!!  And I dare say she is skinnier around the waist than she was at 1 year old.  I guess because they are PJs and she continued to wear them...they never got boxed up with the other items.  They were pants, then capris, and now shorts.  Definitely got our money worth on that set of PJs.  Take that!

That is hilarious that those are 12 month shorts! Can't wait to see what the hair turns out like - I'm fascinated!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
