A mama-milestone.

We had a big milestone over here this week. A BIG one!

Navi's first pigtails!

Holy cow did these little pigtails make my day. Lets be clear on one thing: Navi gets away with a lot. Like a lot, a lot. She gets what she wants pretty much 24/7 and when you add a couple of fluffy pigtails to her already extensive arsenal of cuteness, its just ridiculous. I think we would've let her take the car out for a spin if she'd asked. Sure I had to pretty much pin her down to put the ponytails in, but once they were secure it was pure magic. Magic, I say! She instantly went from baby to toddler and I instantly felt like I had just been initiated into the ultra elite "Mamas of Little Girls" club :).

I'm going to call this one a milestone for me instead of for Navi, obviously she would've probably rather me just leave her hair to lay as it may while I have been looking forward to this moment for forever. I have so many memories of my mom fixing my hair (both from the peaceful-nighttime-hair-brushing and the gouge-your-eyes-out-dance-recital-bun/teased bangs variety) and I have so looked forward to making those memories with my own little girl someday (minus the teased bangs). So Pigtail Day (as it will forever now be referred to) was a big, big day...my day/week/life has officially been made. :)

^^^ She was having a total blast, I promise!
  ^^^ "Mama! Up! Up!"
^^^ Check out the grip on this girl! My finger was literally purple! She grips my hand so tight the second her feet hit the water. But despite her white-knuckle-grip, she is getting a lot more brave about walking out into the deep water- as long as we have a dog out there with us, that is.
^^^ A giggly, chubby, pigtailed baby (toddler?)...Yes, I think I'll take about a dozen more of these, please ;)

    1. HA! Babies just have it made... everything they do is just so darn cute! If only pudgy bellies, chronic wedgies, mismatched shoes, eating with our hands and pigtails could look so cute on us big girls, right?! :)
