Toe-Tally Cute!

Yesterday morning, while Eric staffed a 20-mile training run, Cate let me do this to her toenails:

 
Since she could crawl, Cate has always been fascinated by my painted toenails (when they're actually painted).  So since we were having such fun mommy/daughter time, I thought we'd give her some color to match mine (Eric did my toes the night before school started---he started giving me pedicures when I was pregnant with Cate and I'm thankful he still offers even though I gave birth 18 months ago and am not planning on being pregnant).
I know, the glare makes it look like my big toe is chipped, but it's not.  And I realize that hers look a little raggedy, but I knew she wouldn't sit still long enough for me to file them...we barely get them trimmed around here.  I put Cate in her high chair, because while she'd sit still to let me paint her toenails, she'd also probably want to grab them-- which she did once they were dry:

Adding to all that girly cuteness yesterday was the purse I bought her at a Stop Traffick Fashion trunk show.
 
My friend, Emily, is the woman behind Stop Traffick Fashion.  Her online boutique sells handbags and jewelry made by people rescued out of human trafficking. Cate loves her purse.
 
It's the perfect place for storing those keys.   And her dinosaur toys.  I'm not sure what all has been in and out of that purse in the last 24 hours.

First, thanks your your sweet and insightful comments on my blog. I'd been "scared" to log on since that last post, and your words were a delightful surprise! Second, Cate's painted toes are just about the cutest thing I've ever seen! She is one adorable child :)
