Sara has been asking me to curl her hair, and I finally did.
Sadly, the curls didn’t last long, because the humidity was relatively high that day, and her hair is too long and heavy. Oh, how I miss her natural curls! My long-time friends will probably remember the adorable ringlets she had when she was little (or you can scroll down to my Makin’ A List post, and see them in a couple of the pictures). I’m still sad that they were forever gone, when it was finally time for a hair cut, but I did save that curly little ponytail.
Beautiful photo…she’s maturing, isn’t she? Or is it just the new do making her look older?
I put all my kids new school photos in their frames yesterday, and as always, I looked back through all the others from baby photo on. (I keep them stacked inside the frames.) I got all bleary eyed looking at how much they’ve all grown, especially the girls. I can find barely a trace of the baby that Big Girl was in her face now. I’m not usually the type to “miss my babies” but for a moment yesterday I did.

Thank you! Yes, she’s growing up 😦
It’s so bittersweet, looking through the photos and seeing how little they looked just a few years ago, isn’t it?

So pretty, I wish I had a girl’s hair to curl. 😦 My oldest still has his curls but my youngest lost his. 😦

What beautiful curls!! It’s amazing how their hair changes as they grow. My girl – too – had curls..now – perfectly straight!

I used to have curly hair when I was little, but once they were cut off, they were gone. Now that I have my hair short(er), it’s curly again.

My boys have such soft, pretty hair – it almost breaks my heart each time I cut it! They never had curls, but my little guy was born with dark roots and blonde tips, and his hair stuck straight up (like Guy Fieri from the Food Network)!

That must have looked so cute! 🙂

aww, so pretty! she does look older 😦

She doesn’t listen to me when I tell her to stop growing up 😦

Do you think you’d be able to curl my hair ??… or do anything with it at all… Or possibly even help me look for it ?!?!…. 😉

LOL, sorry Brian. Although….. I COULD run down to Party City, I’m sure they still have some wigs left from Halloween 😉

A very sweet portrait!

Thank you, Birgitte.

Love the sweet little curl. Family full of pin straight hair here, and we all wish for gently wavy hair. Makes me a little crazy when I hear about naturally curly folks straightening their hair!

Trust me, curly/wavy hair isn’t always fun, especially on those bad-hair days, when those curls are directionally challenged 😉

That’s a terrific photo! I wish I had been able to take more photos of my daughter as she grew up.
