I painted Sophia's toenails yesterday. Yes, I know she's only nine months. Yes, I know I probably need help if I'm painting my baby's toenails. But come on!

Would it make any difference if I told you she wanted me to? No, seriously! I was painting my own toenails yesterday, pretending they might actually see the light of day sometime soon if the weather ever warms up, and she was completely accosting me the whole time. Trying to grab the bottle of nail polish (Cha-Ching Cherry!) and trying to touch my nails. Finally I put her in my lap and painted her little, big toe. She sat perfectly still and watched me do it. You know, she started crawling earlier this week, so for her to be still for anything is pretty epic. Of course I had to get a toothpick to do her other toenails since they are so tiny, but she just sat there and watched. As soon as they were dry she kept trying to touch them and kept staring at them.

You know Matthew had a good laugh when he got home, though I'm sure she wasn't surprised at all, this is just the sort of thing I would do. Girls are so much fun, just wait until she has hair!

PS. You know I'm not the only guilty party around here for going overboard with the girly stuff. She is (so far) the only baby girl on both sides of our families, so she has two Grandma's (Mimi and Nana) and three aunts to totally spoil her with dresses, shoes and hair bows, and they do! Mimi confessed to buying her a bracelet the other day. She definitely is the little Princess of the family.


  1. Autumn LOVES having her toenails and even her fingernails painted. I have a special color I got just for her... Altho, then Nathan starts complaining, wanting me to paint an N on his big toe or something. Hopefully I am not scarring him for life by putting polish on his big toe ;) ha ha

  2. I think I just died. This needs to be added to your best things list. I cannot believe that she sat still for that! I painted Grace's toenails for the first time when she was 20 or so months old - that's the first time she'd sit still long enough for me to paint them and for them to dry!

    Chubby baby toes painted red. Skinny jeans with side zippers on babies who cannot walk. Um, best. :)

  3. I love it!! Her little toesies look SO CUTE. Glad you got pictures :)

  4. Sooo cute! How did you get her to sit still for that?
