Linking up with Theme Thursday: Thumbs
I love me a thumbsucker. We've only had two...Andrew and Alexander. The rest have been "nuby" babies, which has it's positives as well, but thumbs are always available, even in the middle of the night, and my babies can self soothe themselves back to sleep.
We didn't have a hard time breaking Andrew of the habit at all...in fact, his dentist did it for us when he was three, and I'm hoping Xander follows suit.
I noticed Xander sucking his thumb the other day while Phil was holding him, and I thought "Wow, that's so cute, he barely ever does that anymore when he's awake."
He was not only a thumbsucker extraordinaire, but he had to hold something while doing it. As you can see in the collage below, anything would suffice...a taggie blankie, a seat belt, a scarf, a bag of garlic, his other fingers. He's not picky, just peculiar!
