politics-free



One of Eleanor's teachers played with her hair today. It was cuter when we picked her up but she still looks a bit like Pebbles, hours later. I have some great hair clips for her but she tends to remove them. She liked this. I guess I need to search for more accessories.

It was a big day for language, especially names. This morning she said "Ol-ver", which is exactly the way Oliver said his name for a few months. She also said "Violet", the middle name of one of her classmates, a child who uses her full four syllable first name plus middle name. It's a mouthful any way you slice it.

And to cap things off tonight, Eleanor said her own name for the very first time!!!

My mom always styled my hair that way when I was young (like Eleanor's age, thankfully not when I was a teenager). Sounds like you had an eventful night in your house!

aw :) Maggie's the same way- she pulls barrettes & clips out, but she'll let me put in pigtails or just one ponytail. I love the Pebbles look!!
