Baby girl hair

Since around October, Sydney's hair has really started to grow.  I was so excited to see that I could finally pull her hair back into piggies, or barrettes.  Sydney, on the the hand, viewed my efforts to make her look like a girl as a challenge.  "How fast can I rip whatever mom just put in my hair...out?"  With that being said, her hair usually looks like the above picture. 

However, the few times she actually humors me and keeps the piggies in her hair, she is so frickin adorable, I can't even stand it.

Lately, she has been waking up with some ROCKIN bed head.  Since I'm not usually motivated to bathe her but once every few days (or so), you can often find my sweet little girl looking like this...
{poor thing}

Just a few short weeks ago, her pretty little locks laid down so nicely...
this was taken Christmas morning, and look...no crazy bed head?
{...and no, my daughter does not smile when I have a camera in my hand}

So for now, we are in this awkward stage were it's really long in the back, kind of "mullet-esque" and not so feminine.  I was looking at her hair the other day, remembering the day she was born and first hearing that I had a girl.  I pictured her with pretty blond hair, and imagined us spending girl time together and putting beautiful trinkets in her fine little girl hair....
then it hit me!!!

I suddenly realized who this crazy hair makes her look like!
Jeff Daniels...as Harry Dunne.  From Dumb and Dumber. Fantastic.

Let's hope her hair continues to grow this winter. Otherwise I think I know what someone is going to be for Halloween this year!

LOL! Sara! Sometimes...well almost everytime you post something it makes me laugh-out-loud! Too funny! Seriously though Sydney is adorable. Soon she will have much more hair and you can have fun styling it.
