Out of the blue today I decided to flat-iron Ella's hair. Her hair has a natural wave to it, but it's not really curly. It was when she was a baby, but the older she got the less curl she had. It was so sad to watch them go away. But since I had never seen her with straight hair, I went for it.
Look at all that long blond hair!! She always says she's Rapunzel, and today she looked it.
She was having fun posing for me.
So I took lots of pictures. She looks so grown up.
This is my favorite of the non-xylophone pictures, which we'll get to in a sec.
I love how bright her eyes look next to the pale skin and blond hair. What a babe.
So about that xylophone, she was playing it the whole time I was doing her hair, and she kept trying to get me to take pictures of her with it. So I finally gave in.
The xylophone. So I figured I might as well work with it.
Such concentration. I asked her today if there was a musical instrument she would like to learn how to play. She said the xylophone. Do they teach that in school? Or would I need to find a professional xylophone player?
Even though the photoshoot was meant to capture her long, flowing hair, I think this next one is my absolute fave!
Love that peeping blue eye and mallet poised for stricking! And last but not least, I couldn't resist putting that cute shirt to use.
It says it all.
