We've been doing what some would consider to be some pampering around here.  

And not of the diaper variety.

(Although diapers are a topic for another post....)

Doesn't she look cute with a bow in her hair?
Look fast, because she rips it out as soon as I put it in.

Are you kidding me?  I've waited 8 years to put a bow in someone's hair and this is what she does as SOON as I walk to the other side of the table?!  

Katie's hair wasn't terrible coming home from the orphanage, but it needed some cleaning up.  Like, the whole business in the front, party in the back look.

She did great getting it cut!

She sat in the chair and the girl said, "Well.  Do you just want me to do the best I can with this?"  I'm pretty sure she thought I cut Katie's hair and didn't want to offend me!

It's the same style, just cleaned up.  We're going to let some of her bangs that start in the middle of her head grow out and work our way into a little bob haircut I think.  She was so great getting it cut and was just happy to look at herself in the mirror and laugh.  

I gave her a pedicure.  Which was a horrid experience.  How do you paint the toenails of someone who doesn't stop moving?!  There is a reason I do not do manis and pedis as my job.

And how do you stop a 4 year old from touching the polish once it's on?!  I kept saying, "No, you like this!"  Uh, clearly she did not.  Was I trying to convince myself or her?!

But seriously - how cute and edible are her TOES?!  


  1. I really, truly believe I'm a "boy mom". However, posts like this make thoughts of all things pink and purple dance in my head.

  2. Those toes could be the cutest things ever!

  3. Super cute, Yep tried to give Alayna a pedi the other day and she sat still until I was done then touched every single toe. haha

  4. That pink on her toes aDORable. And aww i totally want some little girls to doll up lol

  5. Look at those toes! Too cute!!! :)

  6. hahahahaha the pedi totally cracked me up. I was wondering the same thing- how I'd ever paint Lina's nails without her wiggling and messing them all up... so we're gonna wait it out a little while. :) And Lina had the same lovely mullet and bangs up to the middle of her head. I wasn't totally thrilled with the little bob I was going for when we got home but hopefully it will start growing faster. :) Katie is such a cutie!!

  7. Awww!!! Such cute little piggies!
