Hair Combing 101

From Kate:

Let me start by saying that Getty loves her pink comb. I bought a package of them a few months ago and she picked the pink comb for her usual hair brushing. She enjoys when we brush her hair. She loves clips, she loves head bands, and frilly bows. Is this really my daughter? 🙂 So today she was holding her comb as usual, while watching The Big Brag, by Dr. Seuss in her stroller.

For the entire duration of the story I heard the “plunk” of a plastic comb and then a cry. I got up from the couch to find Getty had dropped her comb and was telling me to pick it up for her. This happened about 7 times and each time I laid it back in her hand and she gave me a big smile. “Here you go Miss Getty”, I said. Went back to the couch only to wait for another “plunk”.

Then I got smart. “I’ll just tie the comb to her hand and then she won’t be able to drop it.” And that is what I did. I used an arm sling to hold the comb in place.

I had taken my eyes off of Getty for a minute to write an email and then my eyes were distracted by a moving pink object.  I ran to get the camera. Man, I wish I could have gotten more footage, but here you go. She was combing her hair for a good two minutes.


I have the girliest of girls and I couldn’t be more proud.

  • Kate S. says:

    I was linked by Ashley of Under the Sycamore, but this is just so precious. I was reminded of all the pictures of my own toddlerhood; I was a baby long before pacifier-clips and my mother used to tie my pacifier to my wrist to keep me from tossing and/or losing it. Now I’ve a hankering to see those pictures again: )

  • Evelyn & Evin Stump says:

    Super coiffure, precious Getty. Involving Getty in the Easter egg coloring was a great idea. Pictures very cute. Thank you to all wh remain involved in keeping the Getty research alive.

    Love, Grandma and Grandpa Stump in Temecula, CA

  • What a beautiful girly girl you have:) And you’re brilliant to have tied that comb right to her hand:) We used to do that when our girls were small in carseats. Necessity is the mother of invention.
    Im visiting from Ashley Ann’s site and wanted to let you know you’re in my prayers!

  • Gretchen says:

    Hi- I found you through the Under the Sycamore blog. I read all about dear Getty- she is so adorable. Praying for your family today.

  • Shash says:

    Never heard of Under the Sycamore, but like all those readers, I think Getty Spaghetti is awesome. And that girly-girl thing is just a phase. Enjoy it.

    Come to think of it, my partner’s girl is still in that phase. And she’s 31 with a child of her own. Maybe Getty will always be into pink too.

  • Stacey says:

    You have my prayers. A little girlie in my hometown recently passed away from SMA – I can’t imagine what that must be like to go through. That little Getty is sure sweet though. Amazing the way God has a plan for all of us.
