Jonah and Elora are alone playing in her room this morning while I am doing the last of my Christmas shopping online. I go in to check on them after, I kid you not, no more than four minutes.
When I find Jonah making mischief (his favorite thing to do this week) this what I do:
I laughed, stifled it, told Jonah "No, no! We do not rub stuff in the baby's hair!", took the jar away, wiped his gooey hands off with a baby wipe, asked where the lid was, received no response, ran to get my phone (camera is still MIA), set the jar back in his lap and snapped this picture.
Then I tried to give Elora an Elvis 'do.
Then I washed her hair, which seemed not to do much so she had to sport a mohawk for the morning.
She is also eating her first "biter biscuit" here. The only solid food she has tried previously has been her daily rice cereal for about the past week but I didn't seem to have much milk this morning and I think she wanted a snack. She loved it! We try oatmeal cereal tonight.
After a bath (due to a pooplosion, which is a term I think I took from my cousin Abbie in a blog I cannot locate) and a second hair washing (with my shampoo this time), her hair is still waxy and looking like this:
Anyone have any tips on removing Vaseline petroleum jelly from hair?!!
