I Can't Help Myself

Today my neighbor Lexie gave me a cd with the pictures she took of Eleanor for her 1 year photo shoot. (Which was actually closer to 14 months, but hey.) They are all so beautiful, Lexie does wonderful work. I love them, love them, love them! Here are some favorites of the favorites, it's nearly impossible to choose.

I don't know if you can tell, but she has on the most adorable little corduroy shoes that I got at a yard sale for 50¢! They match the dress perfectly, but were nearly too small, so I am glad I got them in print. Yes, that kind of crap matters to me.
The dress is yet another beautiful hand-me-down from her cousin Allie. We are sooo blessed.

While we are looking at photos of E here, what should I do with her bangs? Keep cutting them or let them grow out? They are at that difficult stage where they start in the middle of her head. Any thoughts? A lot of you have perfectly coiffed little girls, what did you do?

See, we started with a headband, but it didn't last long.
I love this one because of her perfect eyebrows. Which she can now say, by the way, "eye-boh". She says it as she slowly gouges your eye with her little pudgy fingers as they scrape their way up your eyelid until she is pushing your eyebrows with all her strength. It's adorable and painful. Thanks again Lexie! You are the best!

SO freaking cute. Ah, the bangs dilemma. I'm the wrong person to ask. I cut Lucy's bangs when they were in that "start in the middle of her head stage", because I love bangs on little girls. Now she's finally getting some real hair, and I've got to figure out how to grow back out about half of them. Eleanor's hair is so cute and sweeps forward naturally, and she doesn't have far to go before they go behind her ear, so you could do that. Of course, kids without bangs just sometimes end up looking homeless. (note: bangs really don't help keep Lucy from looking homeless at all). See how much help I am?
