Puddle jumper

It must be a childhood rite of passage to go jumping and stomping in puddles. Here is Sophia's first encounter with a muddy puddle. She started out wearing shoes. When I found her in the puddle I handed her inside to hubby to take her shoes off and clean her up. He got as far as taking her shoes off before he got distracted and she went right back outside to the mud puddle.

Lip Gloss

Sophia's never met a shade of lipstick or lip gloss that she didn't like. In this case she found a brand new never been opened tube of Mary Kay downtown brown lip Gloss. She had previously gotten into a tube of lipstick that I had had since before I met hubby. She applied it to her face, hands, toes, hair, you get the idea. (Sorry no picture of this incident since I wasn't home when it happened.)

As you can see she's got some practicing to do yet. This episode taught us two things, Sophia knows how to open screw top containers and she's taller than we realised. I had thought that the lip gloss was far enough back on the counter that she couldn't reach it.

I made this

I saw this fabric in the remnant bin at the fabric store and it just screamed little girl's dress to me. So I tried my hand at sewing a dress for Sophia. Not bad for free handing it eh? All that's left to do is add a button in the back.

Camera boo boo

I found the kids playing with the camera earlier this week so this next series of pictures may be the last I get to post for awhile. I'll post the photos I managed to rescue over the next few days.
