Teeth and Toenails

I know, she's adorable. Right down to her razor sharp teeth.

I have become accustomed to Claira crawling over to me and hanging out at my feet. She likes to plop herself down on them and hang onto my pant legs. It's just her thing, it's how she rolls. I really don't think anything of it.

That is, until I painted my toenails.

The weirdest part is that it's not even a bright color. It's more of a shimmery pale pink with a coat of sparkles on top.

'Cause I like sparklies, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Now, however, instead of just happily hanging out minding her own business, she's like a cat chasing a light. She claws and paws at my toenails until she just can't take it anymore. She leans in for the kill and... *chomp* uses those mighty sharp teeth to bite me! On my toes!

True story: I'm making dinner, Claira crawls over, I give her a couple cheerios. Next thing I know *chomp* right on my toe!

Isn't there some kind of saying about not biting that hand that feeds you? Ya ya, no need to point out it's my foot, not my hand.

True story: I'm standing around, chatting with someone who has come over. Claira appears on the scene, crawls over to me and settles in to watch us talk. Next thing I know *chomp* there goes my toes again.

I think I'm going to have permanent teeth marks embedded in my skin. She has never, ever shown interest in my toes before.

I think I should make a sign and hang it on my front door:

WARNING: Painted toenails, enter at your own risk.

The other kids have decided that, toenail polish or no toenail polish, it's just safer to keep to the high ground.

Smart kids.

Maybe I should just say lol at every post.
Sometimes I feel like a broken record at the many times I say "Oh my gosh, laughing so hard" or "you're hilarious."

I like sparkly toes too. If I ever come visit, I'll be sure to wear shoes.

HA! Oh that made me laugh. That last picture especially. I've never heard of babies doing something like that! Have I ever told you how much I love this blog? It makes me so excited to have my own family!

oh.. but that grin! look at that grin mommy! :)

I'd say she's going to have a shoe fetish in a few years, if she's already into feet at this early age :)

My baby boy is a toe biter too. It's very strange. He's also quite obsessed with socks. If you're wearing them, and he can get to them, he's gonna pull them off, and then insist on wearing them. So often, you'll see my 16 month old running around with dad's socks pulled up to his thighs, and he's happy as can be about it.

My goodness....Claira is such...a little CUTIE! Can hardly wait to see her! I will be sure to put on my comfy slippers, however...(smile)
