My big girl

Mama decided yesterday that Cassie was done with bottles. She's been using a sippy cup on and off for a while. But since Chloe is still on a bottle Cassie wanted hers too. Cassie and Chloe are on different types of bottles (Cassie uses the drop in liner kind) and they know what bottles are theirs -- this will hopefully make this transition easier. I hope. After all, Cassie will be 2 on Monday. It's time. Bye-bye bottles. And since I'm not totally crazy -- I'm moving them to the basement -- just in case.


Posing for mama with her 'big girl hair'. This past week she will finally let me do something with her hair. Today was the first day with two ponytails.

This is what I got when I asked for a big smile.



Such a beautiful face.



But this is the girl I see 75% of the time. The very silly one. And I love it. How can you not smile when you see that face. (please ignore the dirty floor -- I plan on cleaning it sometime in 2010)

Cassie looks so cute wth her little pigtails!! Our girls are getting so big. Remember those clingy little peanuts we carried around China in May? Now they are big, confident, sassy 2 year olds!

Love the pictures. Here hair is adorable. I wish Taylor would let me put clips in her hair. She looks so cute but they don't stay in long. Can't wait for it to grow!!!

OMG! Those pigtails are too cute and you know she is just the cutest little thing too. I love her expressions. Darby is obsessive about her spout and bow everyday or it is a complete meltdown. I can't wait until it is long enough to do something with though. I can't believe Cassie is almost 2. Wow...where does the time go when we are having fun???:):)

Sherry, I was just over at Diana's blog seeing what was new with Sienna...and saw your comment so I stopped by. I realized once I got here and saw comments from Lesa that you traveled to China recently and you know my cousin and his wife and their new little Chloe. Kevin is my cousin. He and his sweet wife Mary just adopted Miss Chloe! Its a small world after all!
That red thread.....
