Pink polish, chocolate fingers and a future dancer...

A few days ago my sweet friend Michelle treated me to a pedicure for my birthday and Lily has been quite intrigued with my painted toes ever since I came home!


Yesterday I decided to take her outside and give her a little manicure and pedicure so her toes could look like mine...although her color of choice was pink:)

Pure excitement filled the air as she waited for me to begin painting her little fingers and toes.

I started with her toes first and she was so still and patient watching every move I made. I love how this picture shows her toes all pointed and curled up :)

As I stopped to take some pictures she decided to try and help herself to the polish and we almost had a huge mess on our hands.

Next up was her sweet little hands and again she was as still as could be and so patient to wait and let the sun dry them up.

She kept looking at her hands and toes...grinning from ear to ear.

The joy and smile in her face was the highlight of my day!

Lily is also a pro at helping me in the kitchen. 


She brings her stool up every time to see what she can do to help out.


If she isn't helping me cook or unload the dishwasher she is emptying the trash, putting a new liner in it, or cleaning up a mess with the dustpan. Sometimes she is like a little adult in a 2 year old body:)


That night we made brownies so I decided to step back and watch her in action letting her eat a few of the chocolate chips...

and help stir the mix...

I think we may have a future dancer on our hands the way she can balance on her tippy toes! This is one of my favorite pictures from the day.


Love the reflection of her legs in the dishwasher and the way her chocolate covered finger is pointed up ready to taste the yummy batter:)

So thankful for moments like these and the beauty that comes in the simple gifts God showers upon us when we take time to enjoy them.  It felt like a sweet hug from God.

Hey. I was wondering if you could tell me where you have bought all of your cute stylish adoption t shirts. I saw your video on youtube and have since started following your blog. Anyways, I would really love to purchase some for myself, but all of my internet searches are leading me to tacky vendors. :) Could you help me by leaving the answer in the comment section of my blog. Thanks so much.

Oh Amy, she is just the sweetest:) Your photo's of Lily are so precious. You have a way of capturing her with your camera that is so natural. My favorite is the pic with her little toes all curled up, beyond adorable:)
God Bless,
