Lately...

...we've been enjoying unseasonably warm weather, long days on the deck, and enough sunshine that we're getting sunburns in March.

...we've gotten the big 20 week peek at baby girl, and enjoyed seeing her healthy and strong, wiggling and swirling around in there. Seeing all 10 fingers, and toes, a healthy heart, and her sleeping with her hands behind her head just like her big sissy, it sets a momma's mind at peace and at ease. I'm so grateful.

...we're taking our power-wheels (her early birthday gift from us) to the park and and driving wrecklessly, I mean, as perfectly safe as safe can be.

...we've painted our fingers and toes in the prettiest lavender color in honor of springtime--and my not-quite-2-year-old has learned to sit perfectly still and wait the appropriate drying time in order to assure we don't mess up the "pretty toes".

...and we've consumed too many summer-indulgences already, and it's not even April yet. Waterice, ice-cream, popsicles.....but it's just fun to get a post-nap treat every once in a while on a sunny afternoon. Yea?

  1. Eeeek!! Such sweet pictures... I'm truly hoping this weather sticks. I will cry big, fat ugly tears if it snows (like it's been known to do in March/April).

  4. I love when toddlers have their fingernails and toenails painted. My almost three year old asks me to paint her nails daily. Although she isn't as patient as your sweet girl during drying time so u get the instant dry stuff :)

  10. How fun!
    Just thought I'd share a little tip that I found useful- I have a 18 month old, and I learned on pinterest that if you spray a little cooking spray (pam) on their toes after you paint them, they dry pretty much instantly. My daughter gets up and runs around seconds after I paint her toes and they never smudge:)

  22. I would seriously love Chloe to sit for me to paint her toenails. But there would be no way in hell that would ever happen. She doesn't even like me to come near her feet to tickle them. She is weird about her feet....booo! Oh well. Maybe when she is 5. LOL!
