Peanut: 10 Months

10 Months... Peanut has officially done as much time on the outside as she did on the inside... and she's come so far since then! So, 10 Things for 10 Months... and.here.we.go...

RAWR! I'm gonna get you!!!


1. She reeeeally has trouble staying still. She's crawling all over the place, and she's gotten pretty fast. I'm constantly chasing her.

How'd I get here? I'd rather not say...

Hi, Mommy!

2. In addition to crawling, she's pulling herself up onto everything. It doesn't matter if she can barely reach up to grab it, it's 2 feet tall, or 6 inches off the ground. This little lady wants to be on her feet likerightnow!

3. She's liking protein more and more. So far, she's had chicken, beef, and turkey. But then we tried Mac 'n Cheese 'n Veggies and that was a HUGE hit. :)

4. She has turned into a Cheerio FIEND. Seriously. Anyone know a good program we can enroll her into? She SCREAMS for them. We're having a little trouble with the concept of one-at-a-time at Chez Sparkle.


5. We're at 7.5 teeth so far, with at least 2 more on the way. Teething is no bueno, but Peanut seems to be doing okay with it. She's generally only fussy 'til the tooth pops through the gums. (knockonwood) She likes to chomp, Chomp, CHOMP on everything AND everyone. I haven't found any articles on infant vampirism yet, but I'm still holding out hope.


6. Peanut's personality is developing more and more everyday. She's an awesomesauce baby most of the time, but sometimes... when she puts on her fussypants... watch out! But no matter how fussy, sad, grumpy, or downright angry she gets... It usually doesn't last too long. Mr. Sparkle and I are VERY blessed.

7. She wasn't that crazy about A Turtle's Tale 2. I can't say that I was either. Thankfully, it came out on Netflix so we could preview it before I ordered the DVD. So glad, because I would MUCH rather buy the first one. Even a 10-month old knows that some things aren't better the 2nd time around. Just sayin'.

Peanut & Pierre = Besties

8. Pierre's still a favorite, but we're also loving Franklin Sammy and our yellow Kacheek. 

This bouncer is getting a liiiiiittle crowded.

9. She FINALLY said Mama! She now says Mama, Dada, and Baba quite frequently. I wouldn't be surprised if Cheerio is next!

Really, Mom? I mean... Reeeally?!?

10. Being on-the-move and not-holding-still means that my little Peanut is not as fond of posing for pics as she used to be. You know, when she couldn't really move or have any say in the matter. She loved this outfit, I know it! Okay, maybe not. But she really did like this one...

Tutu!

How could you not? Wouldn't you love wearing a tutu on any random day of the week? No? Okay. Justmethen.

See ya next time!

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.

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 coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

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 shades on my toes lately…

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...

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 then add in some shimmer and glitter.
