Oddly adorable

Last night was Baby Tune-up night. A bath, lotion on her legs, and then trimming the fingernails. Cutting the Bean's fingernails is always an ordeal. She wriggles and complains about being held down and restrained. It's stressful for me to try to get her nails clipped before she wrests her little hand out of Husbands grip... No accidents so far, thank goodness.

Anyway, so last night Husband has Bean in his lap while I was trimming her nails and she was screaming. She had wriggled into a prone position, and so the tears were welling up in her eyes.

When I finally finished her nails, Bean sat up and a giant crocodile tear came running down one cheek. She could feel the tear running down her face and she tried to pick it up. She came away with wet fingers, which she examined with great curiosity.

That really *is* an oddly adorable image!

Cutting those little fingernails is hair-raising. When Bean-girl was just a few months old, my husband accidentally cut the top of her finger while trying to trim her nails. We couldn't believe how much it bled. From that point on, we've filed the girls' nails--no more nail clippers for us!

I've heard that the best time to cut baby's nails is when they are asleep. Maybe worth a try...

We used to do that back in the day when she would still actually sleep in our arms... No more! The slightest wiggle and she wakes up...
