I had to post this picture of Miss Annikah Joy in pigtails, finally, a couple weeks before her second birthday. This is a major thing, mostly for me who ever since finding out I was carrying a girl had visions of her running around in pigtails being completely adorable and irresistible.
Anni also decided she wants to carry her baby local style and always asks “mama, baby back, baby back” when she sees the Mamas walking with their babies.
Annikah standing in front of our friend’s house…check out the beautiful carved door, they are everywhere and the craftsmanship is just amazing.

    Anni and pigtails just go together!! She is so cute, I wish I could kiss those chubby cheeks! I love how she’s just soaking in all of what goes on around her – including new ways of caring for her baby!

    I can’t believe she has pigtails – next thing you know she’ll have long flowing locks and you’ll have to comb out the tangles everyday – oh – so cute!!
