It's about time.........

When I found out I was having a baby girl I was very excited and happily planned throughout the rest of my pregnancy for my beautiful baby girl, buying her clothes and hair bows, etc. I often wondered throughout my pregnancy what our little girl would look like, would she get my eyes, or have Jake's smile, and would she have dark hair like mine or light hair like Jake's? Well now that we have our precious Abby, all of the dreams I had of my little girl came true, except for in the hair department..........Abby has spent the majority of her life being mostly bald and beautiful! For almost a year she wore the cute big bows and flower headbands, but then she started to yank them off, so I haven't been able to do much with her hair for a few months. I have no idea if it's going to eventually come in thick, but for now we are just happy with what she's got. The sad thing is there are newborns--yes that's right NEWBORNS who are born with more hair than our little one, but things are looking up! For months I have stowed away all of these cute bows and clips wishfully thinking one day I will be able to use them----well that day has arrived people!
Thanks to my mother-in-law Chris, she helped me find teeny tiny curlers that would help make Abby's hair a little thicker so we could put something in it, and then this last week she said, "I think her hair is long enough in the back to do pig tails. Well that is just what I did for church on Sunday, and everyone including Jake and I loved it! Abby wasn't too keen on my twisting and turning the little bits of hair that she does have, she's not used to sitting still for me to do her hair, but she did great! I can't help how excited I am, I know it's so silly, but for months I have politely corrected people when they say, "What a darling little boy" I even got her ears pierced because I was fed up with it, but now, there will be no mistaking our little Abby for a boy because she will have her hair done like a girl.

I had to show you some pictures of her with her curlers in and of her tiny pig tails, Yippee!

What a cutie. I love short little piggies, they always make me smile. I know what an exciting day it is when you finally get those little rubberbands in!

We had the same hair issues with Lucy. She wouldn't wear the headbands or the bows. When people would say, "What a cute little boy", I'd just say thanks because I got sick of correcting them. It backfired when they asked what his name was though.

Her little piggies are so cute!

I don't remember if I've posted but if I haven't well, Hello! :) I just had to comment on that cute little girl of yours! Cute, cute, cute!! It's going to take a lot of learning for me to figure out girls hair once Sarah gets some more. :) Thanks for letting me say hello! - Amber

How cute! But, really, did you get comments that she was a boy? She doesn't look boyish at all! She is too cute and she definitely looks like her mommy -same exact smile! I love it! She is darling, Allison! Little girls are just too much fun! (Especially when they have hair to play with:)

Those are the cutest piggies ever! I'm so excited for you, I know how frustrating it can be! She is such a doll!
By the way, for some reason when I pulled up your blog, I thought you were announcing you are pregnant, so any truth to that?? Ha ha. Love ya!

Well, our kids must have some of the same genes becuase all mine are hairless until 2!!!!!
I love it!
(not that their hairless, that someone else is going through it too) :) :)
She's beautiful in her piggies!
