Our little man managed to pull off a great trick on Mommy and Daddy. For 9 months, he had them convinced that he was not a thumb sucker.
Oh, sure, he'd suck his thumb on infrequent occassions, but he definitely didn't show any sort of attachment to it.
Until about 2 weeks ago. At that point, he became a card carrying member of the Tumb Sucking Club...and no amount of paci-offering or mouth-blocking can deter this new member from the joy of the thumb.
Doesn't he have great form? He's even mastered the "index finger hook" technique already!
Even though it's adorable now, Mommy and Daddy are not looking forward to trying to break this habit in the future.
