I always said before our baby was born that I would much rather have a baby attached to a pacifier than be a thumb sucker. I thought that a pacifier would be an easier habit to break than thumb sucking.
Well, surprise, surprise...Joash had a different idea. A pacifier worked pretty good for a the first few months of his life, but he always had issues keeping it in. Now he has discovered his hand and has moved from sucking on his knuckle to getting either his thumb or index finger in his mouth and sucking on that.
And really, I am okay with it. I would not say it is a strong habit yet, as it certainly doesn't help him sleep or anything like that. If it helps him out and makes him happy, that makes me happy.
It is so fun to see him grow and develop and change. Just thinking about what he can do this week that he couldn't do last week is amazing. What a blessing to be surrounded by the wonders of a new child.
