It was a big deal!

So I had a 'breakthrough' last week of sorts!  Something I'd waited 25 months for. 

And no, Makayla isn't potty trained.  I wish. 

Something much, much more fun!  She let me paint her 'piggies'!!!!

You have to understand, since a newborn, my child had despised whenever I've tried to even trim her fingernails and toenails, let alone paint them!  I longed for the day that we'd paint our nails know..have matching piggies and such.  I feared it would be 4 or 5 years before it would happen.

And then the dreaded came..she had to have a nail trim.  HAD to..they were getting gnarly looking.  So after her bath one night, I went to trim them.  And she watched!  No fussing, so crying, no pulling away.  I was in amazement.  So I figured the next night we might just try a pedicure. 

To my amazement, she just watched.  And when I was finished with one foot, she looked at it and squealed with delight!!  I got the other done and she even let me touch up the edges a bit.

You can tell by the last picture just how happy she was with her 'colored pigs' as we were calling them!  Life with a little girl = priceless.  :-D



  1. That is so cute! I can't wait until I can paint Gwen's nails!

  2. OMG I love painting my daughter's toe nails! The first time I did it, she was asleep so she had no idea.


I love hearing your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
