Ponytails!

This is to document our dear Sandra's first ponytail! She was just 9 months old and it is barely there, but she had a ponytail on the top of her head. (Seriously, you may have to click on the picture to get a better view of it). I was so happy she had that much hair! Both of the boys still had little fuzz at that age. (ok, I have to say it, she was a cute baby!)



Since this time we have grown into doing two pigtails and getting more and more hair. There have been some set backs unfortunately. The first one was from Grant and Sandra cutting at her hair back in Feb or so and then more recently (last month) from Talmage cutting her hair. That one will take awhile to grow in, but luckily it is easy to hide when we do her hair.

We have now officially had the first ponytail with all of her hair!


I'm sure you have all been waiting for this day, just as I have :). I had to use a few clips to help with the shorter hairs. After a few hours the shorter hairs were sneaking out, but I was still happy I got it up for that long!


The pictures don't do it justice, but I think it's adorable on her. It makes her look so grown up... for a 2 year old! Man where does the time go? Now I have another little girl waiting for her first ponytail. Mhari might have to wait a few more months to have enough hair though:).

very cute. I especially love the flower clips. little girls hair is not as cute as it can be without flower clips of some kind. :)

What a huge deal!! You know how much I love doing little girls hair...it is such a fun, important thing. Have you learned how to make bows?? They are so easy, and they would be awesome in her pony!!

Okay... that picture of Sandra at 9 months is so weird to me because I think that was about her age when you all moved in the ward... back when our daughters would stand on the RS chairs together. :-) She is such a big girl now! I love the ponytail... it is indeed and exciting day.

Ok, I guess you can rub it in, because all of us who don't have little girls, but want them, and don't have them, we have to live through those who do. Way too cute, maybe I'll have to post pictures similar to these, but use my boys....ok maybe not, Matt would kill me.

Too cute! Sandra does look so old with her "big girl" pony tail! Can't wait to see a similar post in a few months when Mhari has enough hair for a "mini ponytail" right on the top of her head. Oh the things mommies find joy in. . .

Mhari and Chica (Sandra) seem to look a lot alike at the age of 9 months. Chica is still "squishy" and Pun'kin (Mhari) is, well, big and cheeky.
