Can you guess what Mama and Mary are excited about?
Pig tails - FINALLY!

Yes, I know they are small...
(and look like antennae, according to Daddy)

 But she is so excited to have me do her hair like her Jie Jie Sylvie. Actually, I think she is just excited that I take as long of time to do her hair now as I do on Sylvie's. She is still very focused on everything being "equal".

After putting in the elastics, she asks to look in the mirror, 
fingers her ponies, and says "Pretty". I agree!


  1. Cute!!! Any you could put a couple of pony tails in your Datong sweetie just 3.5 months after coming home....It took me almost 6 as my sweetie came home freshly shaved.
    Glad to see that she is feeling better.

  2. Adorable! I used to do my daughter's hair that way, except it her hair was white. So cute!

  3. She is too cute!!!! Now we need a picture with the three girls with their hair done the same way!! I think Mary would love it!!!

  4. She is so cute. I love her big smile. We should have a play date soon.

  5. "Pretty" - not strong enough - huggable, loveable, and beautiful - all work for me however! What a smile - what a personality!

    hugs - aus and co.

  6. She is just so cute! I love the pigtails...

  7. These ponies just melt me! She is beyond adorable.

    And what a smart girl, in such an early stage, totally understand the whole 'equal' thing!

    Mary's happiness just radiates from your blog. I enjoy coming here, just to see her sweet smiling face. It brightens my day.


  8. Awww! Sweet! I so remember those short little "Pokie tails" as I call them. Now Sugar Pie's pony tails touch her shoulders!

  9. Oooh, she is so cute with those little piggy tails! Love the pics...

  10. Too cute...Mary has such a wonderful smile...i can't wait to meet her! :)

  11. I was so excited for MG's first pigtails ... and now she actually has enough for a short ponytail.

    Mary looks beautiful. I hope things are going better for you all.

  12. Oh! How cute. You are so much better at this than I. Hopefully I will get better. Mary you are one pretty little girlie!
