For the past few weeks, I have been tossing the idea of finger paint for Lily around in my head. Whenever she gets the chance, she smears her food all over the high chair tray, so I thought, "why not?" Yesterday, while she was avoiding her nap, I decided we should go for it. And since I didn't want to go all the way to the store to buy finger paint, I made due with what we had! Of course, as soon as I got it made and I was ready to play, she fell asleep and took an awesome nap, so the mess had to wait until today.
