Some of you know that I have 2 sisters. My beautiful sister, Sheri is 24 and my beautiful sister, Monica is 12. YES, we have the same parents... they just decided when I was 14 and Sheri was 12 that their "quiver wasn't yet full." Anyway, Sheri and I (and our parents) are all very happy that Monica came into our lives. Here is a picture of Monica (left) and Sheri (right). Yes, they look alike and they look the same age, lol.
When Monica was little she had the prettiest hair. And, since I'm the best hair dresser in the family (no lie) I always did her hair. She still has pretty hair but I never fix it because I'm not there. Anyway, I'm dragging this way out... sorry! Monica always wanted her hair in "loopies." Sometimes spelled "Lupies." Monica's nickname was lupey as a baby too. And this is what they look like... beautifully styled on my little Bailey. They are "baby" buns all over your head :). And, just as my DH said last night, "Melody, our baby is NOT black." I still think they are precious. And, I am hoping that my grandma Carter is smiling in heaven right now as she also once told me, when I did this to Monica many years ago, "Melody, I don't think her skin is the right color for that." However, NONE of us are in any way prejudice. My grandma said this in the sweetest way possible but this was her way of telling me that she didn't like it. Smile away grandma... I've now done it to my own baby! And by the way, if you can see this, I love you and miss you very much!
And, my WONDERFUL teacher's aide brought me this adorable little number today. She bought a yellow dress too! SO cute :)
