For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows grace and favor and glory - honor, splendor and heavenly bliss! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Anya's New Do

As I'm sure you've noticed in many of my pictures of her, Anya has quite a bit of hair.

Until recently, there wasn't much I could do about it besides cut it, and I just wasn't ready for that. So we just kept pushing it out of her eyes every time she held still long enough. We tried clips and such, but although Anya didn't seem to mind, Ziva was fascinated with such adornments and would pull them out of Anya's hair. So poor little Anya just looked through a veil of hair to see the world.

That is, until just a few days ago when I decided to try the rubber band approach.

And thankfully, Anya is now big enough to protect herself a little better and won't let Ziva anywhere close to her hair. WOO HOO!!!

Oh, did I mention the girls are sick again? Yup, they both have colds... again... So that should explain the spacey look on her face and her refusal to stop watching TV even for a second.

Looking back, I should have just turned it off.

But I'm starting to feel yucky too so my brain is only 1/2 functional.


And of course, the cutest picture of the day is of Ziva, the child I wasn't trying to capture. lol But if bringing out the camera perks her up for just a minute then it was well worth it!

Tell Anya Granny thinks she's beautiful with her new hairdo!

I hope you and the girls are feeling better soon. I just got over my seemed like it lasted forever, and I'm still coughing a bit.

I have a 2 year old who is just starting to let us really put her hair up. She even brings us clips or little ponytail holders. Before this, she was a bear when we tried to do something with her hair. LOL

Oh I love her little ponytail!
Your kids are SO photogenic. Such cuties!

So cute! I just tried the rubber band approach with Leann. Her hair is not real long yet but it has gotten long enough to put. She kept the bands in where she pulled everything else out.

Hope everyone feels better soon. It's been going around here too.

Awwww, she's adorable with her little ponytail on the top of her head! I remember being thrilled when I could finally do something like that with Bella's hair!

I'm not sure if you're a fan of homeopathic remedies but Hyland's makes a cold tablet for children that seems to work wonders on my kids when they have colds. Hope they feel better soon (and you too)
