A Very Special Unbirthday

Today Eliana Liz is 18 months!   To celebrate Eliana got to watch Alice in Wonderland, oh wait, we do that everyday…To celebrate Eli got to play with sidewalk chalk for the first time!  Or rather she watched me doodle all over our backyard!

Eli is wearing one of the many sewing projects I completed last week.

Eli also got her first pedicure by yours truly!  For me painting her tiny toenails was a bit of a dream come true.  You see, when I was a Kindergarten teacher I once loved my girl students so much that I actually sent home permission slips to paint their fingernails! We had a very special field trip to attend the next day and everyone was going to dress in their Sunday best, so it only made sense that everyone should have a manicure!  Eli seems a little confused why the pink won’t rub off…

  1. Happy (un)birthday, Eli! Her toes look so cute! How did you get her to sit still? (And, not touch them while they dried? They look adorable!

    P.S. You're right. . .the due date is after Christmas. I take a lot of creative license when I post!! ; )

  2. Im not sure how we pulled it off, but she was wiggly! I did dry them with the blowdryer though and it was right before her nap,so maybe she was sleepy.
