He found his thumb - and he loves it!

I never wanted my child to be a thumb sucker because I thought it would be a hard habit to break. However, Owen still won't take a pacifier and just recently discovered his thumb. He only sucks it when he's tired, and I personally think it is so stinkin' cute! I'm not sure how I would even prevent this habit from forming since he mostly does it in his sleep.

I tried like crazy to get Adam to take a pacifier- to no avail. And you are right- it is stinking cute!

Liv sucked her thumb with bunny acutally she really never sucked it just gummed it, it was too cute :) she now only does it when she is extrememly tired other than that she just loves to hold her bunny with no thumb ! travis on the other hand sucked his thumb till he was 12 or something crazy like that.

I love it!!! It is so adorable. He is changing so fast. I can't wait until our Florida trip, the kids are going to have a blast with Baby O-O.

So, you've settled on the tummy sleeping I see. . .I have a friend who sleeps all of her newborns on their belly and so many moms who do swear they sleep better that way. . .is he rolling to his tummy or did you just find he sleeps better like that? I love sleeping baby pictures!

these are too too too presh! connor wouldn't take a paci either. he sucked his thumb at bedtime only and now when he's tired he pops it in. but that's about it. maybe that's how owen will be too. he doesn't even really suck it.... he just sort or gnaws at it. weird, but it worked for him.

Nicki,
I put Owen to bed on his belly. He just sleeps so much better. I discovered it one day when I put him on his back for a nap. He cried and cried and I knew he was tired. Out of curiousity I rolled him over and he closed his eyes instantly!

Kim,
Pray we can go! I was talking to Ben about it again last night. I really want it to work out, it will be a blast!

Thanks, Janelle. We got the crib at a garage sale and painted it black. The high chair and bedding is from Babies R Us.
