Emma has always had a lot of hair and it is now long enough at the front to get in her eyes. My attempts to brush it away from her face are usually thwarted by the little lady immediately messing it up again. I'm too much of a coward to attempt to take scissors to my very active baby, so I've taken to putting the front of her hair up in a mini-pigtail. If you get the band in quickly and immediately distract her, she forgets it's there and crawls around quite happily with her crazy up do. I think she looks adorable!
