I tried washing it a couple of times and it still looked greasy greasy but we were heading to my niece's first birthday party so I thought I'd see if anyone had any suggestions on how to get all the Vicks out of her hair. Both of my sisters married farmers so they had tons of ideas. Shawna put cornstarch in her hair (I'm not sure why, but they use this on cattle....so they tried to see if it would work on Payton - and it did look a lot better! My mom also suggested using Dawn, so we washed her hair with that and it seemed to help too). Here's Payton with the cornstarch in her hair - when my 2yr old niece Laney saw her she told Payton she looked BEAUTIFUL! Payton had a ball with this....although she is still a little 'greasy' looking.
This is my niece, Ellie, who had her 1st birthday party Saturday evening. She is such a doll and so much fun. I think that was actually the first birthday party she and Koen both had been to - and as you can see, they seemed to enjoy themselves.
I don't have any pics of Ellie diving into her cake - she didn't care for it too much-but here's Koen smashing it into his mouth. He, ofcourse, loved it.
