Thumb Sucker

Autumn was sucking her thumb before she was born! Here's proof!
She still sucks her thumb, and it was always really nice not having to keep up with pacifiers for her.
Well Weston came along, spent 6 days in the NICU and became attached to a pacifier (because those lovely angel nurses in the NICU used a pacifier to hold him off from feeding so he didn't eat every hour...they trained him to be on a 3 hour schedule. Something I did with Autumn as an infant.)
And in the last week or so every once in awhile I hear this loud wet sucking noise when he is sleeping, sure enough...he has picked up his sister's habit. We think it's so dang cute. He curls his pointer finger around his nose. Adorable! Unlike Autumn though, Weston sucks on his finger all the time, Autumn only sucks her thumb when she is sleeping.

Cute. My kids never used a pacifier either, but they never picked up thumb sucking for some reason. I thought Jackson would, but then he stopped. Morgan sucks on her tongue or the rough of her mouth to sleep and I've noticed Jackson doing the same thing. I never really wanted to use pacifiers either. To big of an ordeal if they drop them while you're driving or in the middle of the night.
