Got Bows?

As the mother of a child who has loathed containment devices of any kind (car seat, shopping cart, and stroller) since she was a small baby, I do a lot of online shopping. It's seldom that I'll take her to a bricks-and-mortar store, and I only attempt this exhausting feat if I absolutely need to.

In my infrequent trips to the stores in the outside world, I've noticed how difficult it is to find barrettes or bows that will stay in Isabella's super-fine hair. When it became apparent that her hair would grow in Maddox Pitt-Jolie-style, with a large quasi-fauxhawk chunk extending from the back of her head to the front, I knew I needed something to secure it out of her face. But in addition to my impatient and stubborn DNA, the poor dear also has my hair, and ain't nothing for thick-haired babies staying in her fine locks.

So when I read Melissa's endorsement of Very Sweet Bows, I was intrigued. A little research and a few emails back and forth with Fagan, the company's super-creative owner, told me that her bows might just stay put in Isabella's hair, since the bows were attached to tight, ribbon-lined alligator clips.

Fagan's bows are not only adorable, they are also very affordable as well. Check out her site.

I ordered four bows, and they came in the mail this past week.

I am pleased to report that they stay put in Isabella's hair, and I think she looks quite cute in them.

Mmm... bows go great with my afternoon snack.

Wait? You're taking pictures of me?

Take one more photo and I'll break your kneecaps!

    She's a riot. Cute bows! Corinne really prefers small clippies in her hair, and pigtails.

    OMG! I am more warped than usual today, so forgive me . . . but my first thought was "I can't wait to read the blog entries when this fingerpointing firecracker turns . . . oh say . . . 12 or so!"

    (Not that I am trying to rush her childhood away!)

    Those ARE cute. Wonder if they'd stay in Tabby's hair. I don't even want to admit what I spent on the bow's for Tabby's b'day ensemble ... and they did OK, but not great. She has such fine, wispy hair still....
