Weekly Winners - My 1st Edition



I've just joined a great party at Sarcastic Mom's called Weekly Winners. Now Sarcastic Mom, she is a photographer extraordinaire... me, well, not so much. But I do love taking pictures of my kids, and for some odd reason lately (perhaps something called NaBloPoMo) pictures of my clothes.

This week my daughter decidedly became super-girly. She's been into my makeup for a little while, and to be honest, I think she's really getting the hang of the lipstick:



(just as a point of reference, I've thrown in a shot of her taken a few months ago where she hadn't quite perfected the technique):


While at the drug store this week, she made me (as in had a stomping fit) pick up a Barbie Spa kit for her. She refused the Disney Princess kit; that's apparently for babies. Barbie rules now. How did she skip over Disney at such lightning speed?

This is what she did in the car on the way home, just seconds before she screamed at me to rub it off:

She's got pretty good fine motor skills for a not-quite three year old, that I must admit.

She will only wear nail polish or make-up for about 3 minutes before she must have it all taken off so she can just be "G" again. She painted her nails another half a dozen times that day. Grrrrr!

Oh, to be the mother of a Diva.

That's cute, nail polish on her fingers, and cookie crumbles on her mouth!

She is stunning! Those eyes are amazing.

Those are great photos!

The reference point was hilarious.

Thanks for playin!

funny! Princess always wants to wear make-up when I do, my argument that I wear it to try to look as pretty as she does WITHOUT it does nothing to dissuade her. Obviously....

They are adorable, Karen. She really is getting the hang of the lipstick AND the polish. I'm impressed.

Like this weekly winners idea. May join next weekend.

Very cute!!! My little Alexis loves to have her nails painted - hasn't painted her own yet! Cute pictures. Take care, Kellan

Little G is adorable! She is such a little cutie pie...Even if she didn't acknowledge my presence when we were all at D's house :) She strikes me as being the type of girl who is shy at first, but once she's warmed up to someone, she's just oodles of love and hugs.

Love the lipstick and nail polish. She is too cute!!!

Giselle is just beautiful, absolutely a diva!

Cherry said...

I'm quite impressed by her manicure skills. She's better then I am, and I'd be happy to have her do mine sometime! The glittery pink of course!

Kat said...

SO cute. Impressive that she can get her lipstick on straight...I still have trouble with that. =)

MrsGrumpy said...

She has beautiful eyes. Right now, at our house, we are dealing with a son that uses his sister's lipstick as warpaint. He looks very much like the first attempt at lipstick at your house. Then, when I make him wash it off, he looks like he has scarlett fever. Sigh...
