What it Takes For Miah's Hair

So I get comments all the time on how cute Miah's hair is or how pretty and thick it is. I do agree but to be honest it takes some work to tame it every day, but it is sooooo worth it. I am blessed in the fact that she will leave in the bows for the most part, and it is not to difficult on most days to get her to sit still as long as I have a diversion for her. Here is how I get it done... First I put her in a place where she can not get down, most of the time it is her changing table, but sometimes it is the highchair. Then I give her a distraction like a tissue to tear up and she knows she can only do this while we are putting in the pretties, or I give the child shoes to love on and I do mean love on as Miah ADORES shoes! Then I keep a handy spray bottle near by as I MUST have it for her hair on an unruly day if I am not giving her a morning bath. Then I go to work on her head talking to her and telling her how beautiful she is and how cute this looks and so on till we have success. Here are a few pictures of the before and after and a few dews too!
Here she is first thing in the morning and none to happy to have me snapping a photo of the lovely bed head instead of picking her up right away.
Now we have a winning smile as she gets her mop washed and she get to make a few splashes.... another of Miah's favorite things to do.
Here we are all dry, combed and gussied up for the day. See not to bad to tame the hairy beast that sits up top my darlings head.
Here we have one of the first attempts to do real pony tails.... Her hair is just a little to short in the back so.....

We improvise and do a couple of mini ponies to get the desired effect

And this is one you may have seen before but worth posting again if you ask me cause she is so darn cute!! Here I put in 6 or 7 little ponies on the top of her head and let me tell you she loves this. She will touch her head and shake it and pat it, then she prisses around like she knows she is the bomb. My little girl loves to be dolled up!

So now you have the scoop on what it takes for Miah's hair. Don't you know I love it!!
