Today you turned seven weeks old! Lately, you seem to be very interested in Mommy’s eyeglasses. We’re not sure if you are looking at them because of the contrast of the dark rims against Mommy’s face or if you are trying to figure out if it is someone else. It’s great to see your little mind in action. A few times this week you slept five-plus hours! Just when we think we know your schedule you change it! It’s good to keep us guessing--keeps us in check.
Someday you will look back at these musings and photos and wonder why is my face all scratched? Well, my little bunny, your face is scratched because babies have machete-like fingernails that are difficult to trim. This week I woke up to find a few scratches on the left side of your gorgeous little face. I immediately trimmed your fingernails which is one the most heart pounding tasks I have ever encountered. Your tiny little hands are so delicate, and your nails are almost microscopic. Now factor in your jerky movements and my nervousness. Oh, boy! I bought these nail clippers with a magnifying glass thinking they would be useful. Mmm, not so much. I briefly considered buying this device called Pedi-Paws (I know it’s for dogs) to trim your nails. Maybe the manufacturers of Pedi-Paws could make one for babies. That would be great.xoxo, Mommy and Daddy
