Photo: cutting the midget's hair.

I hadn't trimmed Laurel's hair in over a month, so she sat still after dinner just long enough for me to do her bangs. Mom thought the faces Laurel makes while I cut her hair were hysterical and kindly took a few photos for posterity.

Giving the kiddo a haircut

A few notes:
- The green on her face is due to her current fixation on coloring a ring around her mouth every time she gets her hands on a marker. (Earlier this week it was blue.)
- Those are my temporary glasses. When I finally replace my departed glasses, I'm aiming for something slightly narrower across the face because I feel like they're always sliding down on me.
- My hair up-pinning is usually a little neater. It's hard to find good thick-hair barrettes that'll hold my hair up in a double figure-eight (my hair currently falls 3" above my waist when it's down) and the best one I've had was swiped five years ago by a drunk hallmate.
- The low white table visible in the right background is the train table. Full-size pictures of it will appear in the January 2004 photos at oddharmonic.org when I post them next week.

Re:
I've regularly cut her hair since she's had enough to need trimming (around the time she turned 2), but she's had trouble sitting still long enough for me to get anything more than bangs so her hair's a lot longer than usual right now.

She also uses the magic marker to color her nails. I don't know why she can't just ask me to paint her nails. *wry grin*

Re:
well, at least she's relatively self-sufficient.

You always have the best photos.
Her grimace is just too cute.

Is that green ring merely around her mouth
or across the bridge of her nose as well?

Re:
Thanks.

She colored around her mouth (and down her chin like a goatee), on part of her nose, both hands, the front of her thighs and a fairly clear smiley face on her belly. I think it's time to remove the markers for awhile, but I have to find out where she finds highlighters because every time I restrict markers she starts using them and colors herself yellow, blue, pink or green.
