Esther's Soother

Most babies hold onto and/or rub something when they are soothing themselves.  A "blankie" seems to be the most common.  Esther has an unusual item that she uses to sooth herself, and she uses it when she is sucking her thumb:
Her Hair!
She plays with her pony tail, pig tail, this case she had gone to bed without a pony tail so she "played" with her hair all night long turning into the hairdo reminiscent of the 1960's bee hives!

It looked worse that it was...she's made worse before - one mat took me over 1/2 hour to get out!

But there's one blessing in this "smoother" - it can't get lost!

  1. Haha.... that's pretty-much what my Lena looks like when she gets up from bedtime or nap... She's 6-years-old and grew up in an orphanage in Ukraine (until 2 months ago), and she rocks her whole body back and forth while falling asleep - as a result her baby-fine, almost-curly hair ends up looking like a flock of tattered sheep. :)
