Back to where I started

Well, I had a pretty good run I think. My nails got even longer since my last picture. But then I broke a nail (for the first time ever in my life), had somethin slip between my nail and skin to make it bleed, caught my nails on various objects on numerous occasions...and then...we went to Columbus Georgia to visit Septtro's family this past weekend. It was about 4 hours in the car - with no baby to occupy my hands.

My nails in this picture are still longer than normal. But now I've experienced the pleasure of biting again.

I suppose I may never have really long nails. And I must say, after all that can go wrong with having long nails, I'm pretty okay with that.

Happy Birthday Jesus!

We've decided to make it a family tradition to bake Jesus a happy birthday cake - in this case, it's a happy birthday pie (apple!). Ri is pretty excited to get started...I told her she could lick the bowl. ;)

Merry Christmas!

Couch Potato

'You take this remote from me and I'll give you a knuckle sammich!'

Yes, she has discovered the television. This is nice now because she's distracted when I need her to be. But I know in the future, this could be bad news.

Fat Fingers

I don't remember exactly when I took my wedding rings off during my pregnancy. I think it was shortly after the 20-week mark.

I figured by now, my rings would fit again. Oh I can shove them on my finger, but they look like they're choking the life right out of my poor ring finger. And getting them off, well that's a fun game.

I could get them resized for free under our warranty, but I'm a lil nervous as soon as I do, my fingers will get skinny again and they'll be too big. You know - Murphy's Law. Or maybe my expectations are too high. Maybe they'll never be the size they used to be.

I miss my rings - they're the only jewelry I normally wear (even though I quite like jewelry...I guess I'm just kinda picky).

Sooooo....what's a girl to do??!

Nail Biter

I've always been a nail biter...a bad one - we're talkin fingers tips that look like space men with their pinkish-redish space hats on.

Both my friends and family have tried to help me quit. I've tried that nasty tasting stuff you paint on your nails. I've been bribed with presents and money. But no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't stop. It wasn't so much I didn't have the self-control (although I do lack in that area), it was more that I would do it without even realizing it - when I was nervous, when I was bored, basically whenever my hands weren't busy doing something else, they were in my mouth - gettin their nails chewed off.

I know it's a nasty habit. I tried to stop. But it wasn't until something else - or shall I say, someONE else - diverted my attention that I noticed, hey, I can scratch my arm without giving myself a brush burn.

All this time, all I had to do was have a baby to stop biting my nails. Man, why didn't anybody suggest that earlier??! :)
