I researched & researched for months before we adopted MaCee. I researched hair, skin, etc, etc!!! Nothing I read could have prepared me for what it would be like. When we were in the hospital it seemed as though her hair was a little wavy, but mostly straight.
I learned very quickly that this was not true... Our first day home I washed her hair and this is what I saw! Curls... Curls... Curls! In the beginning these curls were EASY! Now they have gotten longer and a little bit harder to comb out.
So recently I decided I needed to get back to researching... After multiple videos online, I decided to try yarn braids!!! I think they turned out pretty cute... and I can't complain because the only cost was 2 dollars in yarn! MaCee was such a little sweetie and sat for 3 hours while I finished he whole head. Have I ever said what a little angel she is... I don't know many 17 month old babies that would sit for 3 hours! Love this little girl... and all of the wonderful things she is bringing into our lives!
Over the last 17 months our lil mocha babies hair has changed in so many ways... but I think I have learned as we've gone, and we are finally getting it figured out!!!
