My New Addiction & My Crazy Girl...

Well, I have found a new hobby that has become quite addictive...making hair bows! My neighbor, Amy, was making all of Myla's hairbows, and I began to feel a little guilty about it because she wouldn't let me pay her, so I thought I would buy the little contraption that she uses to make them called the Bowdabra...yes, that is really what it is called! It is so easy to use and now I can't quit making them! Myla will never wear all of these so I have got to start giving them away! I can't wait to go to Hobby Lobby or somewhere that has a better selection of ribbon so I can make some really cute ones!
Here are most of the ones that I have made so far.
What does Myla do while I am making bows, you ask? She runs around the house like a wild woman with ribbon around her neck! Seriously, this morning she was cracking me up! She was making the loop through the den, kitchen and living room going ninety to nothing! We may have a future track star on our hands. Here are some of the pictures that I snapped. Some of them are blurry because she was moving...
And she's off...
Here she comes around the turn...
Outta my way, Mommy!!
One determined little girl!
One lap to go!!!

Later on this afternoon Myla started bringing me all of the bows off of the dining room table and motioning for me to put them in her hair, so here she is with a nice assortment of head gear!!

What about that??? This is the child that 6 months ago wouldn't leave a bow in her hair for anything! Now she wants one in all the time. One of her first words when she wakes up in the mornings is "bow" as she touches the top of her sweet little head!

I don't have girls, but from what I've been told, if you can make bows for your daughter and possibly sell them, you've found a gold mine! They all look really good but of course, Myla makes them look their best!

If only Anna Lauren would wear a bow...I send a bow in her bag to school every day and she lets her teacher fix her hair. However, as soon as I pick her up, out comes the bow...drives me crazy!
