Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!

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.

I always played the Xylophone in band. Just teach her how to play the piano and its a breeze to switch over.

I was going to say, Megan played the Xylophone in band. And some marching bands have them too, don't they? She can go after her dreams!! LOL!!

I love her long hair. She is getting way to big.

Darling girl! You are SO good with your camera. I wish you lived closer so you could teach me.
