When we found out we were matched with Selah’s birth mama, the few people we told, immediately asked me, “How are you going to do her hair?” And I responded, “I’ll learn.”
Three years into being her mama, I’m still learning. So much. And have SO much more, still, to learn. Something the Father is teaching me lately is that it’s His anointing, that is our teacher.
She’s two and a half. Can you believe it? She’s looking more and more like a little girl and less and less like baby Selah. It breaks my mama’s heart. Although the tantrums are no joke, my favorite part about this age is her imagination.
She’ll say, “Be a mermaid, Mommy!” or, “Wide dis magic carpet wif me, Mommy!” My absolute favorite is, “Wet’s dance!” She has the sweetest heart and literally talks all the time. I guess like every other two year old, she’s also obsessed with Frozen and recently Elsa “bwaids” are her favorite.
Can I be honest with you?
I’ve probably spent more of her life so far praying for wisdom about her hair than her husband. That might sound silly to you, but I told you I was going to be honest. Caring for her skin and hair, is me loving her well. And gosh, I want to love her well! So, I’ve asked for lots of help, watched lots of tutorials, and practiced, a lot. I though I might share some things I’ve learned with you just in case you’ve prayed the same prayer.
