side by side...

kate is sporting her first ever piggy-tails this morning, and that, of course, inspired a hunt for the pictures of elizabeth's first piggies (i couldn't find the picture of the first ever libber piggies--but honestly, they weren't very piggy-tail-ish--this one is from last spring at this time...maybe her second or third ever piggies!). we've known that kate has A LOT more hair than libbers did at this age (in fact, i think she has as much as elizabeth has right now!). to put it in perspective, kate is 20 months old right now...elizabeth's first piggies came when she was 2 1/2! the picture below with elizabeth in the orange shirt shows just how little hair she had at kate's age...


here's our little piggy...for the record, she wasn't thrilled by the process of getting the piggies in, hence the thumb and blankie clinging! :)

elizabeth (L), kate (R)

looking through old pictures was too much fun, so i decided to do a side by side perspective. actually, i was amazed as i looked through pictures. i have been thinking that kate seems SO much younger than elizabeth did at the same age...and then i looked at the pictures and was brought back to the reality of just how young libbers really was. its amazing how quickly you forget how little they once were! these are pretty accurate age to age comparisons, as both girls are between 20 and 21 months in the photos below. elizabeth is always on the left and kate is always on the right.



can you believe elizabeth's wispy, "barely there" hair?! especially in light of kate's head full of thick curls!

I have always thought that pig tales were the sweetest things on little girls! :) - Always seems to make them look a little more grown!

I love comparing pictures too. :) It's fun to remember.

correction! Kate is on the right and Libbers is on the left. A Grandmommy knows this for a fact! What beautiful girls, aren't I a blessed Grandmommmy? Was fun seeing them yesterday! Can't wait to have their room finished at the lake so you can all come up!

So precious! It's so cool to see the differences. My youngest has about the same amount of hair as Elizabeth did at 20 months.

Go look back on your blog about a year. I think I remember a post about those pigtails and you finally giving them to Elizabeth. I think the picture may have been her sitting at a table. I may be wrong though, but that picture may be there!

Too cute!

Your girls are so sweet! Piggies are so much fun:) And I have to laugh because I was bald as could be until I was two years old! No piggies for me till I was older either.
