This is the first time in a good while that I've put Eloise's hair in pigtails. I was impressed with how long they have become. Eloise likes to have her hair done. She sits on the counter with her basket of barrets and chooses things for me to put in. She will pick out ponytail holders too. She is getting better at leaving them in. But since she likes to hide under pillows and blankets, it gets messed up pretty fast.
