Twinkle Toes

Last week, SD was watching me paint my toes (which is a mental picture you probably don't want at this point) to get ready for the wedding (See Tessie's blog for details, I have the same pics and stories, so you can just see them on her blog). Anyway, SD was enthralled with the idea of having your toenails painted. I decided it was high time that she get her's painted, I mean, she is almost two! So, I grabbed the bottle of hot pink polish and started painting her toes. It was so funny, she was not so sure about what I was doing, she tried to pull her foot back a couple of times. But when it was all said and done, she said "Boootiful like mama's" it was really cute. I used quick dry polish, but I let her sit on the counter for a couple of minutes, just in case. When I put her down, she started walking more on her heels so her toes wouldn't be messed up. I was startled, how did she know to do that? I don't think I have painted my toes in front of her, ever! I guess as a little girl it is just in her DNA to know what to do with wet toes! Here is a pic of her "Bootiful" toes.

Oh, and when we showed Daddy what we had done. He told her that they were very pretty, but I don't think he was too sure about starting all of these "grown up" things at such a young age. SD is a Daddy's girl like no other and I think he is starting to realize that she is growing up. To him, she will ALWAYS be his baby!

SO CUTE. We've been painting AD's toenails for ages, once she saw mine it was all over.
