  quinn thought she would try out her new teeth...
while nursing.

i hollered.
she bit harder.
i swatted.
she let go.
i bled.
she cried.
i tried not to.

piper came in to see what all the commotion was about.
i explained what happened and we all went on our merry way.
later i heard piper re-telling the story to her great-grandpa:

"quinn bit momma's knuckle!"

he looked over at me and i just smiled.
some things are best left unexplained.


  1. i'll never forget my experience like that. it went something along the same lines. except they are called 'nibbles' at our house. :)

  2. Ouch! I've been there too - and it's awful! Here's a trick (which you probably already know)...if she starts to bite just pinch her nose. She'll have to open her mouth so she can breathe and it stops the biting. Babies hate it when you do that and it's pretty effective!
