sticky feet

As long as I can remember, I've commented on how sweaty Claire's feet are.

At first, I thought it was just a newborn thing, but now I'm getting a tad concerned we may have to buy stock in Gold Bond Powder.

Yes, these feet (including that oddly-shaped big toe...I don't know how on earth can a toe have a bad "angle", but your's does), are long and sticky. Claire's toes are more like fingers and add some stickiness to them and she can grab anything.
They've picked up rags and they attract dust and especially my hair, even when it's connected to my head! ouch.

But, I love these feet. I kiss them and smooch them and give them zerbers.



And Claire loves them too. She's obsessed actually and I think it's the cutest thing ever.

adorable photos ... now I have to ask the question and please don't laugh at me ... the term 'zerbers' is what exactly ... downunder, I haven't heard that before ...

Awww, you call them zerbers. We call them zerberts. Did you get that from the Cosby show? :)

Learning to grab their feet is one of my very favorite things that babies learn to do.

Looks like she is going to be double-jointed (flexible) like her uncle--notice how those toes curl to the balls of her feet--I've seen that before!!
