In the last picture I posted, K looks more like a sheepdog than she does a little girl. These are more from that same night:
This is partly because, when we met her in September, her hair (especially her bangs) was incredibly short:
I thought she looked like Moe. But in a good way. (Please, no comments about MY hair, or the fact that I look like I haven’t slept in several days---I hadn’t, but I have since then! :-))
So, we’ve been glad to see her hair growing out. However, due to the sheepdog pictures, and the fact that she won’t put up with bows or pony tails in her hair (they get yanked out, unless we use those really tiny rubber bands that they put on dogs!)
(Thank you, Auntie Susan, for the fabulous do!)
We decided it was time to have the bangs trimmed. So it was off to my friend Danella on Monday.
It was, I should state, not a “fun” experience. Danella was valiant, but it was much like trying to cut the cats’ hair. But the end results are really cute!
Many thanks to all of you for the suggestions about the Aveeno---we love it! you can tell that her face is looking much better. It’s still a bit dry and red, but not nearly as bad as it was. Her skin all over is much, much better.
We also found some really good stuff by a company called “California Baby”—they make an aloe vera cream that not only isn’t really greasy, but K actually likes it on her face. We slather it on all the time, when we remember to.
Love to all of you!
