Catch-up & Pigtails

(Even though Abby is claiming to be the "loser of bloggerville", I think I could give her a good run for her money these days with my blogging frequency, or lack thereof.)

It seems as though so much has been going on lately, yet nothing at all.  Or at least nothing interesting enough to blog about.  But in true Lori fashion, I will try.  (And I even threw in a whole new blog look for those of you still not brave enough to try out Google Reader despite my best efforts to convince you otherwise.)

And rather than one huge post about the awesomeness that is Eason life these days, I'll spare you the details and try to post several much smaller posts over the next few days.  Try being the operative word here.

Now I suspect that my daughter is like other 19 month old girls out there (gah! 19 months?!) in that she HATES having her hair brushed, combed or even messed with.  She is a fan of the bow if you consider that it's just take it in and out of her own hair and not actually leave it there for any extended period of time.  This past Sunday before church, I was feeling particularly brave creative, so I decided to grace the world with the awesomeness that is Olivia's first pigtails.  This was no easy feat, I tell you.  There was screaming, crying, and gnashing of teeth.  And Olivia was pretty upset too. But in the end, we made it out alive and the plethora of comments we received at church and throughout the day were well worth it, in my opinion. (Seriously? What mom doesn't like to be told just how cute! and old! and precious! their child looks?)

Exhibit A:
I realize the picture is rather grainy, but hey, you take what you can get on a Sunday morning at 8:20 when you're trying to make it out of the house to arrive at church--10 minutes away--by 8:30.

Exhibit B:
By this point she had totally caught on to the fact that I thought she was cute. I call this pose: SASSY!

Exhibit C:
Even with this ridiculously un-cute face she's making while saying "CHEESE" in her biggest voice, still... the piggies? Love them.

I needed to see a picture of her hair post-Sunday school. Those kids always look rough after they're done with Sunday school.

That is some serious cuteness! I miss Eva being in that "first-ponytail" phase. *tear*

Loooove those cute little piggy tails! Miss y'all! We'll be gone all week in Louisiana at my parents. My sister-in-law is having a baby shower tomorrow morning so we're doing that this weekend! Y'all take care and hopefully we'll see you soon!
