Look Who's Sportin' Pigtails!

Yes, they may be the smallest pigtails you have ever seen, but they are pigtails nonetheless. 

And, she really likes that everyone compliments them...especially Allie and Zach.

And then, in the blink of an eye, we have a MAJOR meltdown...

...which seems to be the theme of the week. 

How you can go from happy-adorable to complete meltdown status in less than two seconds will always be a mystery to me.  At first I thought it was those pesky eye teeth making their appearance, but now I'm thinking it may be that you are finally realizing you have power...power to influence situations and try to demand your way when things aren't going according to your plan. 

Don't want your diaper changed?  Writhe and Scream!

Don't want the snack that is offered to you?  Throw it and Scream!

Don't want to get in your carseat?  Arch your back and Scream!

Don't want Zach touching you?  Hit and Scream!

Don't want Allie near you?  Pull her hair and Scream!

Don't want to come to Mommy?  Run the other direction and Scream!

Don't want to hold Mommy's hand?  Throw yourself on the floor and Scream! 

Oh, bug-a-boo, it has been a rough week for us all. However, you should be aware by now that your tactics aren't working out for you.  Add to that the fact that your mommy is way, WAY more stubborn than you will ever be and you have a lose-lose combination. 

Now that we have that out of the way, let's just focus on how cute you are in those pigtails:
