Pigtail Sisters & Getting Older

I was trying to get the girls to have matching hair dues but little Miss had a different idea.
Keira sat for .5 seconds yesterday morning while I tried quickly to do her hair.
She HATES to have her hair done, she'll let me brush it and put a headband on her but if it invloves a pony tail or getting pig tails she wants nothing to do with it!  The past few days she's been pretty crabby, she's getting 2 teeth on the bottom.  The one finally broke through last night and the other one is so close.  So trying to take pictures of both the girls today or even her by herself was out of the question.  I enlisted the help of daddy to get a picture of both girls and only got 2 good ones of her by herself.

I've had a huge obsession with my girls baby feet.  I don't know what it is about them but they are just so darn cute!

Keira was happy for a short 5 minutes when she semi played with Kaylee before wanting me to pick her up and snuggle.  I do enjoy our snuggle time.  Unless she's not feeling good or just wants to be sweet, those snuggles are few and far.  I love when she walks up and gives hugs and wants me to rub her head and back.  Kaylee thought she might be able to cheer Keira up by sitting in the baby car seat, I think it worked!

Kaylee on the other hand won the award for Miss Photogenic yesterday.
I don't know if it's the way her hair is but for some reason to me she looks older in these pictures!
What do you think?!



Here are the only 2 pictures I got from yesterday of Miss Keira.
She hasn't been happy due to 2 more teeth coming on the bottom.  That brings her total teeth to 8.
I have a feeling her 1 year molars might be trying to come in, she's been chewing on her fingers in the back of her mouth like a crazy person!!

As my birthday creeps closer, 3 more days
I will be celebrating 28 years of life on Monday

I thought that I'd be sad about getting older and being that much closer to 30, but I'm not sad at all.  I'm the oppisite, I'm happy.  I couldn't imagine my life being any better.  I am a mom to 2 of the most beautiful little girls, I'm with the man that I love more than anything, we're getting things started to buy our first house, I just graduated college with a degree in Early Childhood Development.  This is exactly where I want to be.

I always thought that after graduating high school that I would stay friends with the 7 girls that I called my best friends in high school.  But as the years went on and we grew older we grew apart.  I am very happy that I am still really good friends with a few of those girls today.  Though one of them lives in Vegas that doesn't stop us from talking all the time.  I will be metting up tonight with my best friend her fiance and our other friend for a fun dinner and maybe some drinks for my birthday.  I am so happy that I'll be able to spend my birthday with people who mean a lot to me.

I am sad that my mom isn't here.  I wish I was able to celebrate with all my family, but I'm happy to be spending my birthday with my little family too.  We will be celebrating me all weekend long!!  And I'm excited that my sewing machine will be here Feb. 1st!! YAY
