my first pigtails & splash city

Again, thanks to Anna Kate's example we realized that Addy was ready for her first pigtails! After Elizabeth showed me some rubber bands that were good for her thin hair, and how to use them we took the plunge! Unfortunately Addy is learning at an early age that beauty can often mean pain... especially with an inexperienced mom yanking your precious few strands of hair in unusual ways!!




Bathtime has become a new experience for Addy... she has finally learned how to splash! This newfound talent has her running to the bathroom and standing up at the bath tub every chance she gets. I think this is her way of asking for another bath. I think she must miss her GG who gave her a bath every day. She's lucky now to get one every other day!




Unfortunately, while making her way to the bathroom she has disccovered the toilet and the toilet paper... I forsee many messes to come!!

SO sweet! Bathtime is one of TJ's favorite times. Sometimes he stays in there for almost an hour!

abby? michelle.. come on... i thought addy was a cute name! hehe...

i guess i should have written this in my 5-facts that my name was changed when i was a few months old.

i love the fact that you don't have to use a smaller bathtub. priya would probably sink to the bottom if she wasn't in her smaller tub. maybe we need to just try it some day.

and you gotta teach your girl some spunk.. haha. actually, no. we all love her gentle-spiritdness. :-)

Sweet piggies! And I love that dress too!
Dominique loves bathtime too. (And Joshua). Once when she was about Addy's age, and not yet walking, she stood up at the bathtub and actually toppled herself IN! There was no water in it, but I still kind of freaked out! So, watch out!
We haven't ever had a baby tub. I dont think I would know what to do with one! :) (Actually, I could probably figure it out.;)

Hey, Michelle, can I ask another blog related question here? while Im thinking about it.... can you upload more than 5 pics at a time, or do you have to do five, then do more when they are done? I cant seem to do more than 5 and was just wondering if there was a way...

Cute pigtails ... actually, i'm glad you pointed them out ... i'm so thick sometimes i would not have noticed them. but they are cute now that i see them. and who said she's chubby? it's cold here in Chicago ... we need extra covering ... ask her dad, and me!
