A Hair Raising Experience!

We had Marissa's hair braided the day before we left Uganda, and it was starting to look pretty ragged. Now those of you who know me well, know that I am hair inept. Really, have you seen my hair? How about Gracie's? Let's face it, I have no idea how to make hair look good. So why on earth God saw fit to give me a beautiful African daughter, I have no clue. Anyway, Noah and I set about the task of removing her yarn extensions from her hair. A little over a hour later, we were finished. My next task was to wash her hair up real good, and lavish it with a lovely conditioning treatment. Doesn't she look cute in her little plastic cap?

An hour or so later, and I decided it was time. I had to begin the work of learning how to do this hair thing. I am waiting for my shipment of snaps from Snapaholics, so I can't try braids just yet. I did, however, manage three very crooked puffs.

Good thing she's cute no matter how terrible her mommy is at hair.

We love you little Marissa! And we'll work with your mommy on the hair thing!
