We also got her hair cut. It didn't really need it, but I was hoping that it would fix the moppishness of the top. She won't let me leave pigtails in. They looks so cute, but they're out almost as soon as I move away. I wish I could figure out how to keep them in her hair.
First -- I want to see that video! And I want to get one of those bouncy horse things, too... 'though I think it's REALLY funny that the inflation valve is up the butt (I speak of the inflatable bouncy guys here, duh, just in case that's not what you were talking about).

Second -- I think Nevie and Evie belong to the same "get that crap OUT of my hair!" camp. I actually trimmed Nevie's bangs this morning. According to her preschool teacher, it looks okay. I'm, of course, skeptical. And relieved she is too young to care that it looks like mice chewed off some of her hair. And that it will grow back quickly.

Not enough hair here for pigtails either, though I'll have to be trimming Aurelie's front bangs at some point because the hair's getting into her eyes, sorta.

As for naps, well if she wakes up at 7am, she'll need 2 naps. One before lunch and one before dinner. If she wakes up between 8 and 9am, then she only needs ONE nap for the day. Damned if I sleep in... damned if I don't

That was ruby before this week. She was napping 1-2 x a day depending on when she got up... but I think she's about to start walking... she'll take a few steps here and there, but won't all out walk across the room. I think once she walks she'll sleep again. : I hope, at least.

I did just buy a cute barrett that keeps her hair out of her eyes. I'll try to get a pix tomorrow. I'mgoing to make some more like it.

Thanks - Korin busted me on an incorrect movie identification in a convo, just after my post boasting my brain capacity for idiotic info on here, and I was ashamed of my fraudiness, and she branded me with a scarlet DDDDC, as it were... (why I oughta....)

Add K, too - she hates barrettes, flings headbands off her head, and there's not quite enough for pigtails. Not to mention the sheer torture of trying to get her to stay still whilst trying to put said ornament in her hair - putting an octopus into pajamas would be easier. It kills me cause the barrettes look SO cute, but she only leaves them in as long as it takes her to wrench it out of her hair. I call unfair that other little girls will sit long enough and keep in hair ornaments...aren't cute outfits and ornamentation the whole reason for having a little girl in the first place? : I NEVER thought those words would escape my lips...er, fingers. SO not a girly girl myself.

K's forms this nifty dracula point down the middle of her forehead sometimes, like a really long widow's peak (it's actually less pointy now that it's longer, it used to be worse). Ummmm...yeah, I need to trim it...and will likely end up with the same rodential effect (see octopus wrestling above) as Nevie.
