M: Hailey, you're cute...I just want to squeeze you!
H: Please don' always squeeze with your nails and it freaking hurts!
M: Pleeeeaaasssseee...I just love you so much. Can't you see this loving look that I'm giving you?
H: I see it, but I don't know if I believe it. I think you want to see how much pressure you can apply before you break the skin...or break my will...whatever comes firsst.
M: Please...I can't help myself.
H: No.
Matthew ignores her and does it anyway.
M: Oh! You're so cute and squishy!!!
M: Does that screaming mean you like it? I'll do it more! Does it feel good when I do this?
Pulls the hair on the back of Hailey's head.
H: NNNNOOOOOOOO! What are you doing? Get off of me! MOMMMM!!!!
Mom: What are you guys doing? Oh, Hailey, he just loves you so much...
M: See? I love you.
Mom: Matthew, be gentle with Hailey...she doesn't like that as much as you think she should.
M: Okay...I'll try again, but this time, I'll go for her face.
H: Oooooowwwww!!! God, someone should cut your nails! Get off of me!!!

M: Okay, but I do love you...I let you touch my face.
H: Yes, but that's because I'm gentle with your face and I let you put my hand in your mouth.
M: True...hey, what does "gentle" mean anyway? Mommy is always telling me to be gentle, but I have no clue what that means.
H: I don't know...
Blank stares at each other...
H: I would assume it's the opposite of what you're doing to're rough dude!
M: I gotta touch you again!
M: I love you!

They are just too cute! Love the post as usual! Why do baby's nails grow so fast?? I swear that I can cut Kaity's nails and they are long the next day! Happy 7 months to the kiddos!
