Peanut: 7 Months (and 8 days...)

Peanut turned 7 months old last Monday... 7 months! What happened to the tiny little peanut I brought home in October? She's growing way too fast... Her 4th tooth is coming in... she rolls all over the place, and she's literally minutes from figuring out how to crawl. She's one active little girl, and it's getting more difficult to capture the cuteness.

Take last week, for example.

I had her in a really cute onesie. In my defense, it was an 80ish degree day, and it totally FELT like summer. The bow on the back is adorable, so I was trying to snap a picture of her being a little turtle, showing off the bow. That just wasn't happening.

Hi, mommy!

What do you mean, turn over?

This book is yummy.

Pretty Bow!

One thing I've learned in the past 7 months and 8 days of parenting this little Peanut... It's totally her show. If she doesn't want to do it, she's not going to. She's got stubborn in her genes, but I love that about her. She's particular, and that's something we celebrate at Chez Sparkle.

So when I get random poses like this... 

Peanut = Fabulous!

1,2,3... WIGGLE!

you just sort of learn to go with it...

I have a foot...

You don't want to see my foot?

but... it's my Foot!!!

strapping me in will achieve nothing, I tell you. NOTHING!


What is this smile you speak of?

I have another foot...

Hahahaha... Foot!

and eventually, you'll get one of these... <3

I'm so funny!!! Wait a minute I forgot my foot... MULLIGAN!!!


Are you still here?!?

We are done here.

Most of the time, she's cooperative for the camera, and if she's not... well, we just strap her in, and that works. For now. Sometimes. When she wants it to. The more mobile she gets, the more independent she wants to be.

You can't stop me!

I'm on my way...

If I could just...

My head is so heavy...

Can't you just...

help me out a little?

pwease Mommy?

I'll eat all my veggies, I promise!

What do you mean, not a veggie?!?

Yep. What can I say? She's a stinker, but she's MY little stinker. We've had a lot of fun together over the past 7 months... Not quite sure what I did to deserve such a sweet little girl, but I'm SOOOOO thankful for my little Peanutty Buddy. Love Her, LOVE HER, LURVE HER!!!

filling up her snugglemeter while I can... <3

BTDubbs... This is my first time linking up with anyone, so I'm hoping that I've done it correctly... :)


  1. Is there really anything better than a baby in black and white? How sweet! Thank you so much for linking up!

  2. Thanks! I really enjoy reading your blog... :)

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and

Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 5 Coats daniPro Forever Girl* 1 Coat daniPro Clear Top Cover* 1 Coat Seche Vite I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3 In case you missed my review of First Kiss , daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health. Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter sha

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon. That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY . This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's? Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones.
