What’s going on?

Well, when Eudora gets hungry, she starts opening her hands and closing them.  This is essentially the baby sign for “milk.”  I reinforce it by using the sign when I bring her a bottle.  That’s not the problem part.  That’s actually awesome.

The problem part comes when I’m holding her and feeding her.  She continues to make that sign, but she does it by scratching.  I keep her nails short, but she’s got nails like mine: it doesn’t matter how short her fingernails are; they are still razor sharp.  She’s very nearly drawn blood with me.

Now for me to feed my baby girl, I have to keep a burp cloth between her hand and mine in order to avoid pain.  (Granted, she still pukes like no tomorrow, so I have to have a burp cloth, anyway.  Even with that, though, she still sometimes manages to get my pants.)  She’s actually managed to scratch my hand until I’ve nearly bled.  So when I saw this on Facebook, it certainly seemed to strike more than a little bit of a chord within:

It’s true.  It doesn’t matter how often I trim her nails or anything else.  She’s got nails just like mine: paper thin but can deliver a slice more painful than a paper cut.  I almost feel that this particular infant behavior is my karmic justice for all of those times that I’d accidentally sliced Norton or the husband with my own claws.  Sure, I felt bad when I drew blood from Norton’s neck with a fingernail.  I felt bad when I sliced the husband’s leg with a toe nail.  But I feel agony when Eudora scratches me.  I strongly suspect that there’s nothing that she can’t cut with those things.  She could probably scratch diamonds with those wickedly sharp little nails.

I’m guessing that the only thing that I can do is wait.  After all, time heals all wounds, right?  Even the ones inflicted by tiny baby claws?
