I thought she hated PIGTAILS

Joel and I decided to go to the temple today for our date this week, and had a sitter come over and watch Ava for a few hours. Ava would not take her morning nap, so I was a little nervous about leaving her with a sitter, but she had a great time playing dress up.

I try several times a week to put pigtails or barrettes in Ava's hair and she will not have anything to do with it. In fact, she fights it so much that I have pretty much given up.

When we came home today, this is what we found...

A cute little girl with pigtails. I asked the sitter how she got Ava to cooperate and sit still, and her response was she just sat in my lap while I did it. WHAT??? How does that happen??? I decided that I might have to hire the sitter just to do Ava's hair once in awhile.

Then later in the evening Joel and Ava decided to try to juice some leftover vegetables and fruit from our bountiful basket that we got last Saturday.
But as Joel started to juice the first carrot the motor blew. The bang scared Ava to death. She would not go near the counter for awhile. And the thought of throwing the juicer away almost brought Joel to tears (not really, but he loved that juicer and was sad to get rid of it). I am not entirely sad about it because the thing was terribly messy and noisy. I guess we will have to come up with something else to do with the fruit and veggies -- Maybe smoothies (with the fruit). Yum Yum.

oh my goodness...that was our life with jaida....she would not wear anything in her hair and i had to do pigtails first i did not like them but it was the only thing she would not pull out....then her hair started to curl at the ends and i loved i am sad that her hair is too long for pigtails. She will wear baretts now so that is nice....finally! Ava is so stinkin adorable!
