scratchy...

it doesn't matter that i'm now a baby nail cutting fiend - i cut this kid's nails daily and he still wakes up with scratches on his face! so yesterday morning it was a big one. (can you see it on the right?) i checked his nails and realized that i'd missed one the previous day because he'd started screeching. sorry ben boy.

when i started cutting his nails, he latched onto my arm with his mouth (his latest thing is putting everything in his mouth) so i told tim to come take a photo. of course, when the camera comes out, ben is all eyes on the camera. but it made it easier to cut those nails.

That first picture of Ben is pretty funny...he looks like he's been through the ringer with the drool + scratchy face. Still cute as ever though!

This is probably not even possible with a baby, but could you try filing his nails with one of those crystal files? They make the edges smoother.
