Notice all of the toys in the background. Instead, this is what Ali does while I get ready (when she’s not drawing herself up with lipstick, that is):
She opens them all, looks at them lovingly (doesn’t touch them because Mommy has taught her not to AND she hates getting things on her hands),
then closes them one by one. . .
then re-opens them, exclaiming at each one, “pretty purple!! pretty pink!!”,
stares at their loveliness,
and wonders why I find this photographically worthwhile.
And to add to the fun, why not stand on a mirror while going through the makeup routine?

  1. What a little cutie! My 22 month old likes to get out my mascara and say “color” ! She thinks it a crayon…I guess in a way it is and my face is a coloring book!! She’s so pretty. I only have the one daughter too. We have a lot in common, except for the accounting part…I’m not good with numbers. LOL

  2. How SWEET! My 22 month old little girl likes to “yello” (color). Didn’t know she had snuck a red marker in her crib. She colored on all of her stuffed animals, blankets, and pillow…But it was so pretty. LOL :)

  3. Isn’t it lovely how kids can play with things that are part of the household!
    Eat your heart out guys of Fisher Price!

  4. Funny… she really looks like she’s in deep thought about the make up. Don’t you wish you were in her mind to know what she was really thinking?

  5. I loved looking at this post. I have a 14 month old little girl and three boys. It is fun to think about my little girl enjoying girly things (and drawing with lipstick -ack!). Your little one is a cutie!

  6. well, with the way she’s intrigued by those colors, you definitely have either a make-up artist or interior decorator on your hands! :)
