5 Months Later

So as it is known #babybigtruck2 is now 5 months and we FINALLY did her foot and hand print for her baby book. Better late than never right?!

Wednesday night was bath night and after I gave #babybigtruck2 a bath I was getting her dressed and it came to me that I finally have time and a stamp pad to do her prints so I said to Mike let’s do it! First of all I should have done it BEFORE the bath but you can’t win them all.

I love this photo because she is actually watching as we do it!

Clearly her feet prints came out great!

We moved on to her hand prints and well that was interesting. Someone balled up her little fists and wasn’t having it.

Thankfully with Mikes help we had some success! Granted one hand looks like a blob I love it. When we did this for #babybigtruck we had the same problems but it makes for a good story!

When we were done I used wipes to clean off her hands and feet and that is when I realized we had a problem. I got most of the ink off but she had a slight gray tint to her hands and feet. I tried everything to get it off, I used wipes, soap and water, rubbing alcohol, and lestoil, but I couldn’t get it ALL off.

Here we are 2 days later and there are still hints of ink left but it’s slowly coming off. Worth it for the cute prints.

  Hugs, Nikki

    The prints really did come out great even with the little balled up fist, and that picture of her looking down is so cute! Hopefully the ink will be off soon! Have a great weekend! Beautifully Candid

      Thanks! I don’t mind the little balled up fist either. I am super happy we have 1 hand print that is a regular handprint though! Thankfully the ink is gone! Happy weekend!

      Oh no! We did #babybigtruck when she was like 2 weeks old and it was really the best time to do it.

    Hey, better late than never!! The footprints always turn out so much better than the hands, but I love them all too!
