The "fountain" ponytail.
The side barrette.
One ponytail. Clearly not her favorite.
Eventually I introduced Hallie to the french braid. She became obsessed, and now, if given a choice, will only wear braids in her hair. (I try to give her a choice, because if I don't, she won't stand still long enough for me to even comb through the tangles.) After a couple of weeks of basic french braids I realized I was going to have to branch out to keep myself from going insane from hair boredom. Yes, you can go insane from hair boredom.

I know lots of moms read this blog, so I thought I'd post pictures of some of our new french braid styles in case you're in a rut with your girls' hair and need to mix things up a bit. I've also included our titles, in case you'd like to use them as well. We're super creative.

the braid comes together in the shape of a football.)

(This is the braid that started it all this past summer, though I can't take
credit for it - that's AJ in the picture with Hallie, and AJ did both braids.)
I'm pretty much out of ideas now, or at least out of ideas that will work on Hallie's baby-fine hair. Maybe that's a good thing.
