Last week I decided to put Ava's hair in dog-ears to see if they would stay. Her hair is still just a little too fine to stay up for very long, but we successfully kept them in for quite a while. Bradley and I were headed to Memphis for some anniversary shopping and when we took Ava to Nana's and dropped her off with these little ponytails, Nana was in Little Girl Heaven. She was so tickled by these little ponies. I thought they were so cute, especially clipped up with her "I Love Jesus" barrettes from church. It was so cute, but my little baby did look so grown up!
I have talked on her about Ava's love of coloring. She colors so much everyday, but she has also began to do what she calls painting. This same day I walked into the living room and Ava had her coloring book propped up on the coffee table coloring the back cover. She was so proud when I walked in and said, "Mommy, I'm painting!" So when you see the coloring book turned up like that, you know the master is at work!
Thanks to Mandy for the recipes you sent!
