Almost there

It's a good thing I have a friend who knows how to crochet. I'm pretty sure without her help (did I say help - - I mean, she did it for me), the baby doll I'm crafting up for Little Miss would be hairless. Ugh. I sat there with the crochet hook and the yarn and the instructions for about an hour before I finally gave up and called her in.

It was sweet though. We had a chance to hang out together for a while and chat . . . and she whipped up 2 different hair possibilities for the baby in a short period of time. One thing I resigned myself to when I decided to call her . . . after all the agonizing I did over yarn choices and wanting to make this multi-textured wig for the doll (because I think I'm SO cool like that) . . . well. Let me tell ya. It became clear when Little Miss got her hands on the doll's head and arms that she was envisioning a "baby". And guess what, folks? Some babies have hair, but not LOTS of hair. So we came up with a simple, but very cute hair style to go on the baby. I am pleased with the way it turned out. My friend and I realized after it was done that the baby was bearing a weird resemblance to my brother-in-law (who also happens to be Little Miss' favorite person at the moment). We went with the curly cinnamon bouclez . . . and anyone that has seen my brother-in-law lately knows that he is the crazy curly topped man. Seriously, dude has a 'fro.

IN SPITE OF THIS, however, after my crocheting genius left and I finally completed sewing the wig down onto the baby's head . . .

Little Miss caught sight of the baby, ripped it out of my hands, and proceeded to try to RIP THE BABY'S HAIR OFF.

Apparently, babies are only bald in her world and this cute 'do was just too much for her. I'm hopeful that she'll warm up to it once I am able to make some clothes for it. As my husband pointed out, the baby is still naked everywhere else . . . maybe it's odd to her that the baby has hair but not clothes. I am hopeful that he's right, but I somehow doubt it.

So much for that . . .
