This Little Piggy


















I am borderline obsessed with this, but I dare you to find a sweeter hair style than The Pig Tail. Unfortunately, this hair battle is rarely won. So I must document that I do care about my urchin's hair and would fix it like this every day if it were up to me. Especially since it encroaches 'fe-mullet' status more and more every day. Any hair stylists out there? Do you cut a cute bob or let it flow? I'm afraid the Mullet Patrol may sever connections if I would allow it in my own progeny.

Anyway, at least we're not battling over clothes yet. I'm sure she'll have an opinion soon.

I too absolutely adore pig tails! She looks so old! However, in the fight against mullet and urchin hair that I have also waged with Whitney I would vote for a little bob. It looks so cute when it is all cut into a smooth style. Also, it helps avoid that look of no one in the world loves me because my hair looks like rats have been at it.

LOVE the pigtails, I agree with Koryn, they make her look so grown up! I'm scared of having a girl for those hair issues. With a boy it's easy, just cut it! I think I still have my Mullet Patrol tank top (although I don't know why) if you want to borrow it and take a picture of her with you wearing it. Add it to our collection....although I'm not sure where our collection is... And if you wait another month, Jace will be there to join her with a mullet of his own (I just cut it, before he was sporting a nice Billy Ray Cyrus do). Also, I have found that Jace's hair grew SO much faster after I cut it...I don't know if you've cut Abbey's yet. Anyway, this is a novel, sorry :o)

Miss Abbey has to be the cutest thing. I go through the hair struggle everyday with Mikaela she ain't letting me touch her hair with a comb, but Kynna loves her hair done. Problem is Kynna has no hair. As for the mullet I let Mikaela grow and it everntually looked fine but I don't know if I will have the patience with the next.

i love the little pigtails! when i have a girl she'll be sportin those often. i have to agree with your sis on the bob, too though. nothin' is cuter than a little bob on girls. My cousin has a littl girl Abby (how ironic) and her mom cuts hair. Her hair is always in a cute little bob and blowdried to perfection. I guess thats what comes with a mom hairstylist, though. Anyway, if you're debating on which "do" to sport, you can check out her blog at www.leviandbecca.blogspot.com
p.s. i love that shes pushing her lil stroller... precious!

Love the pigtails! Could she be any cuter?!

Hey, the 'fe-mullet' is better than the 'le-mullet'!
Long hair is out and short is in, so I say cut it off. She could still sport her, ever so cute, head bands that I've seen her wearing in some of the pics. Either way, she will look adorable no matter what you do.

Morgan had a fe-mullet as well for a LONG time! I love sweet Abbey's hair, she looks so cute!

Heidi said...

I just love her!!!! She would be cute with NO hair!!! Miss you guys so much!!!

Barb said...

yea piggies! If she is on the verge of the fe-mullet status, let her be. She can pull it off with that darling face.

hayley said...

ooooo... tough call! I know if I have a girl I will have to make that decision too! But those pigtails are adorable:) And her little head band and tights, soooo cute:) She can pull off any hair style dressed that cute and stylish!

the STORY of my life! I'm so glad there is someone else out there who can understand messy little girl hair:) I always say "if you only knew how ridiculous your hair looks you would be begging me to fix it!" of course they can't understand but it makes me feel a little better:) by the way she looks adorable in piggies!!!

I copied that hairdo for Preslie the other day for school. it turned out cute...of course she has a TON of hair. I hardly know what to do with it! But it is probably easier to decide that than your deciding what to do with that wispy baby feather hair. it is too cute. When she is 2, she will no longer be a "baby" so I say go for the bob then.

Is that our mini trampoline in the background?! Every time I hear the song "Uptown Girl" (which is more often than you might guess) I think of jumping around on that thing and singing it at the top of our lungs. But I'm sure I don't have to tell you this, you probably already know it.
