7 Month Comparison

Comparisons @ 7 Months

Wow time sure does bring about change! I had no idea how different my hair looks now compared to when it was first done. I thought just more of the same was going on, but as you can see I have ton's of growth, thickness & density. I love my hair!
Today was the first time I washed my hair without braiding & banding. Boy did I feel liberated! I washed with the Oyin Grand Poo Bar & oiled my scalp with a six oil mixture from my loctician and let it air dry. I was a little apprehensive at first but it went well, as far as I can see there's no slippage at all. Of course I got permission beforehand. Now I'm anxious to color & condition but I'm going to wait until closer to my birthday.

I am starting to experiment more with pinning my hair up, I know it'll be a while before I will be able to wear my hair in the famous pineapple, but I'm looking forward to it. I decided to try & see if I could pull it up into a ponytail & voila! I did it, see! I know it's a bit small but I thought it was cute enough to workout in. LOL

I am looking forward to celebrating being loc'd for one year. Heck, I may even have a party! I LOVE MY HAIR! I think I better start planning now because time is really flying by, but first I have to get my daughter's graduation/birthday party planned out first. Man I can't believe my only baby is graduating high school & will be leaving me soon to go to college. She's planning on going out to Cali to attend school. I won't cry yet, I'll be strong. LOL

While uploading new pieces on etsy tonight I noticed that my pictures were not clear. I need to change the settings on my camera to make the pictures smaller because when I load them up on etsy they won't load because they're too large. So I had to edit the photo's and make them smaller. This time I think I made them too small, hence, the blurry pictures. So if you stop by the etsy shop please excuse the latest photo's. I'm not changing them because it's too much work! Just bare with me I promise I'll do better next time.

A LudieBell Update

As you can see Ludie is quite comfortable here at home! LOL
We're all doing pretty good with him here NOW. The husband walked around the house with a scowl on his face for about a week but he's stopped now. I've vowed to bathe Ludie often. To tell you just how much, he's only been here three weeks & he's been to the groomer once & has had two bath's since he's been here. I still don't think that's enough for the husband but he's not getting any more than that. I think it's overkill personally, but I have to do it to keep him happy. I just hope I'm not harming my baby.
That's my other baby in the picture. My only daughter who's graduating from high school in June.
