She has been asking for them.  So today, we gave it a shot.  She just b.a.r.e.l.y. has enough hair for two tiny little ponytails.  She is so excited for her hair to grow long like Kate’s, yet, interestingly, she does have her complaints.  “My hair hot,” she says.  I guess since she has had super short hair all her little life, perhaps her newfound longer, thicker hair does create a bit more heat around the cranial area.  Yesterday she was confident after running around in the basement for 1/2 hour with her siblings that the entire reason she was sweaty rested in her ever-growing hair.  Hopefully the ponytails make the long hair worth it.  I suppose this is her first lesson in understanding what every girl knows:  sometimes beauty requires sacrifice.
