I put my baby girl's hair in pigtails for the first time yesterday.
Doesn't she look like a big girl?

I dislike "baby mullets",
so I've kept her hair trimmed before now.
But I think it's time to let it grow out.

Here's all my sweeties.
Maddy gets her cast off today!
She has been so sweet
about wearing a cast.
Even though it's one of the
hottest summers ever,
she hasn't complained at all
about it the cast being hot.
They are all excited about going

And here's one more of Miss Mia.
Just because she's cute.

17 months

Today Miss Mia is 17 months old.

Here's what she's been up to:

-Most of her clothes are 6-9 months.
-She wears size 2 diapers.
-She has kinda big feet--size 4.
-She still takes 2 naps a day (usually 4-5 hours total).
-Loves to play with her Bubby and Sissy.
-Climbs on EVERYTHING.
-She is SO BUSY!  It's hard for her to sit still (especially in her highchair or at church).
-She can go up and down stairs with no problem.
-She talks a LOT--but we still can't understand most of it.
-We are all SO in love with her!!
