How can it be that at such a young age, BG2 has already adopted some weird and crazy habits?!
Recently, she started this thing where she would pick at someone’s finger or nail, just casually while they’re holding her or even while she’s sleeping and a hand is nearby. She absentmindedly picks at a person’s nails or cuticles! I have to take the blame for that, I suppose, since I have a terrible habit of picking at things like my cuticles and nails (it’s like they have to have something to do), and I used to bite my nails too, which BG1 does. Sigh, it’s bad, I know, but no one else in my family does it?! I don’t know how it happened!
Now, she’s taken on grinding her teeth. She has two bottom front teeth and two top SIDE teeth (we joke and say she’s a vampire, haha) and occasionally I’ll hear her grind her teeth. How does she accomplish this since her teeth aren’t symmetrical, you may ask?! Well, she adorably juts her jaw to the side and grinds the bottom two on one of her vampire teeth. It’s cute, don’t get me wrong, but that sound makes me want to claw my eyes out! It’s like how some people get annoyed at nails on a chalkboard or the sound of drills. I can’t stand that sound! And the funny thing is, she only does it around me! The Hubbi has yet to hear her grind her teeth, and the many times I’ve silenced the house and tried to get him to listen for her teeth grinding, she just won’t do it.
It’s like she wants to torture me.
Let’s not even mention how I can’t get anything done with her around because she always wants me to hold her. She’ll happily play in her baby jail or walker for a bit, but quickly whines and begs for me to pick her up. I don’t know if it’s because we’re not around each other a lot or what, but the girl can’t get enough of me. I suppose I can’t resist her too, and if you look at her face, I bet you wouldn’t be able to either. Damn babies and their adorable smiles and innocent faces you can’t stay mad at!
