We have a thumbsucker!

Today Asher really found his thumb.  For weeks he has been cramming in his whole fist, or the side of his thumb, or part of his thumb but then immediately losing it when he goes to wave his hands around.  Today he got his thumb in, just the thumb, and left it there. And repeated the maneuver several times!  It seems to be working well to soothe him, so I am fine with it.  (I should mention I sucked my thumb til I was 6.)  I foresee a great deal of orthodontia in our future!

  1. I'm so proud of Asher! Discovering the real purpose of opposable thumbs! I think that these days all kids end up with braces, so you're probably no worse off than you would have been if he'd not found it...
