Look at that sad face! I bet you'd feel sad with wild hair like that too.
I combed it all back and put it in ponytails, which looked quite adorable, although they don't show up too well in the next picture.
I told her that her hair was pretty, and then started to get ready myself. My hair wasn't cooperating at all and I told Alaina that Grandma was having a bad hair day. She responded with "Grandma ponies?" Somehow, I don't think I would look nearly as cute as she does with ponytails.
Bob, Heather and I all have a water bottle that we keep in the refrigerator. When Alaina is here, I put one in for her too. Whenever she gets a drink from hers, she also gets out the water bottles for whoever is home and brings them to us, so we can have a drink too.
Last time she was here, she had dry lips. She wanted Bob's lip balm. After he put some on her, she said "Grandma too?" So I pretended to put some on. Then she said "Oliver too?" Bob said no to that one. He's not nearly as good at sharing, at least not with the cat.
She has reached the age where she likes to do things for herself. Laura had taken her outside to play in the snow. When they came in, of course she had to take her coat and mittens off by herself. Laura saw her struggling to get her coat off, then heard her mumbling "problems, issues" to herself. When Laura asked if she was having problems, she said yes, and let Laura help her.
Where does she come up with this stuff?
It's no wonder we love to have her over and spend time with her!
