Peanut: 8 Months

Has another month gone by already? This little Peanut is growing and changing everyday. It's unbelievably cool watching her discover this world of ours... what she likes and what she doesn't, amidst bouts of crying, bouncing with an open-mouth grin, unabashedly tasting everyone and everything she meets, crawling and cruising all over the place, and snuggling with mommy and daddy when she needs a break from moving. 

I got this...

8 things for 8 months...

Peanut & Daddy

1. She has said her first words!!! "Daddy" and "Hi" and a lot of other jibberish. She knows exactly who Mommy and Daddy are... but she's so excited that she can say it, she calls everyone Daddy. I'm sure "Mommy" is next. No, really. It's next, right?

2. And she's mobile... crawling all over the place.

caught trying to supervise bottle-making...
"My taste buds are a little more refined..."

3. We've finally introduced protein... and she doesn't really like it. It's so much fun trying to get her to eat it. There were airplanes, chicken sounds, and the chicken express complete with all sorts of chugging and choo-chooing. Who doesn't like chicken?!? But oddly enough, the only other thing she's iffy about is squash. She loves sweet potatoes, green beans, peas, bananas, peaches, apples, blueberries, and carrots. She used to like rice, but I think the flavored foods have won her over.

Hi, Mommy!

 4. She's still a stinker. I've tried to put her in the crib with hopes that she'll get tired and take a nap, but no. I'm not sure what it is, but she doesn't nap for me on the weekends like she does at daycare on the weekdays. Is it a conspiracy? Either way, now that she can lift herself up and crawl, she's started peering through the "bars" of her "cell." 

I see you.

You want to play, right?

I know that's why you're here.


I think she'll be a stinker for a little while longer forever. I can't say I'm disappointed. For such a little peanut, she can really make me laugh!

Really Mom?

5. She's been sitting up really well. So well, that we've ditched the mesh hammock during bathtime, AND we're splashing on the other side of the tub.

Okay, you can show this one off. But only this one.


 6. Pierre. <3

7. Frankencheek. <3

Mmm. Brains.

8. She's really getting so big. I can't believe how big she is now compared with when we brought her home... and she's so incredibly active. Most outfit changes happen while she's on her stomach, some while she's crawling away. She's on the move and she doesn't want to stop for anything! Her little personality is really starting to take shape, and it's incredibly cool watching that happen.

First Night Home

8 Months

I see you.

Taking it all in.

I can wave now, too! See ya!!!

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit.  Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times.  This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd c

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
