My daughter... a new milsestone!

Its more of a mile stone fro Mummy I guess, however I must share it with you...
Ella (Almond Eyes) has always had very little hair. As a hairdresser's daughter this has always bothered me. I just wanted to do pretty stuff with it! While all her younger friends were wearing pony tails & cute clips, I couldn't even keep a headband in her hair!!


Baby Ella... no hair!!

10 month old Ella, a little fluff on top...
One year old Ella... a clip stayed in for the photo, then came out!

At 18 months we could get a hair-tie in (that lasted all of 5 minutes!)
At age 2 It was a mop!!


At 2.5 yrs we could get a couple of pony tails in... but again they fell out very quickly!

On her 3rd Birthday we managed a 1/2 up 1/2 down pony which only lasted for half of the party!
But now FINALLY...
At age 3 1/2, my beautiful Ella has hair long enough to put into BRAIDS! Little tiny braids, but braids none the less!! And they didn't fall out! She did however look like a scarecrow after she took them out later in the day!
I am one very happy mummy!!

Absolutely gorgeous Ella in every photo, but the tiny braids are so cute. I'm so happy for Mummy that she can do these sort of things now. (And you must be an excellent hairdresser to be able to keep such fine hair together long enough to braid it! Well Done!)

What lovely pics! She is gorgeous, and I've always loved everything you've done with her hair.

I have no idea why some kids have little and some have lots - Smoochy was born with lots of dark hair (you probably remember) and it's grown like a vine ever since.

It's crazy hair most days, and half the time she refuses any manner of hair-restraining. Makes us look like bogans sometimes.

Ella's never made you look like a bogan! That was my point. Her hair has always been neat and tidy.

Look at those teeny little braids - they're so cute! I can braid my own hair but can't for the life of me braid someone else's hair. It's like trying to knit left-handed.
