But they are also quite different. Take their hair for example. Grace's hair is so curly I can't tell which end is growing out of her head. Surprisingly enough it's halfway down her back now when its sopping wet. But as soon as it dries it curls right back up next to her scalp. Faith's hair, on the other hand, is as straight as can be and constantly stays in her face. I've tried everything: gel, helmet head hairspray, you name it, but her hair still falls down in her eyes. So we've taken to using hairbows. Which is a challenge in of itself since Faith likes to pull them out.
Recently, I've tried piggytails in Faith's hair. And I must admit that I love this look on her.
And thankfully, Faith seems to tolerate it. At least for a few minutes at a time.
Of course, Grace didn't want to be left out.
So now both my girls are wearing piggytails. At least until they pull them out again.
This is Faith's. Please excuse the dirty walls. My children are artists in the making and sometimes they use their walls as a canvas. Or as napkins. I have cleaned the walls since these pictures were taken. I promise.
And this is Grace's. And yes I hung it crooked. Grace has already pointed that out to me. And eventually I'll get around to straightening it up. Just remember it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful...
Faith's hair is constantly in her eyes and I can never find something to hold her hair out of her face. Mainly due to the fact that she hates wearing bows. But that's another issue. So today I decided to make hairbow holders for both girls so I can keep up with a growing supply of hairbows.
First I let the girls pick out any color they wanted. They both wanted hot pick, of course.
Then I let them each paint a wooden letter for their first names.
This was another very messy adventure that probably should have been done outdoors.
Grace is a bit more meticulous than her little sister.
After the letters were covered in paint we added hot pink glitter. My girls like pink and sparkles.
Here is Faith's "F."
And Grace's "G."
Do you see my countertops?
They were covered in paint, too.
So was the floor.
But I have good helpers and they helped me clean up our mess until everything was as good as new. Now all we have to do is glue some ribbon to the letters and hang them on the wall. We'll have to wait until they dry first, of course.
