Julia sucks her thumb and I love it. When I'm not quick enough to nurse her when she's hungry, she pops in the thumb instead of wailing in protest. When I put her in bed awake, she pops in her thumb, closes her eyes, and puts herself to sleep. And besides all that, it's just so cute!
Elena and Chloe were also thumb-suckers. Chloe sucked her thumb the entire time we were in the herb bath after her birth. Lydia, on the other hand, was a tongue-sucker. No pacifier covered in floor crud, no pruney thumb, all she needed was her own tongue. Too funny.
Which side of the fence are you on? Pacifier or thumb? Do tell.
