These Days

These days, Colton's favorite thing is his THUMB.

I can find Colton...sucking his thumb to help him fall asleep, go back to sleep, wake up from sleep, comfort himself and entertain himself.

It's his BEST discovery yet. What is it that is so dang cute about a baby sucking their thumb? I will definitely encourage this habit.

Oh, wow, is he ever cute. I always think it's kind of smart that a baby can figure that out. Resourceful, you know? Two of my six were thumbsuckers (one was you).

I always hope that my babies will suck their thumb, but neither one has! Instead, I have to go help them find a binkie in the middle of the night. The thumb is nice because they can find it themselves!

He looks so so so cute. I love that slurping sound he makes.

Lucky you 'cause he can comfort himself! He is a true "chuck-a-lunk" as you say! Way adorable.

I love the thumb sucking. He is just way too cute. And I agree, very resourceful finding his own thumb. I bet it has helped with his amazing sleep habits! I am so jealous.

What a cutie! That's definitely a handy trick to learn so he can soothe himself.

supercute, I wish my kids sucked their thumbs, beats the heck out of finding paci's in the middle of the night!

So cute....hopefully Nora learns that trick too...it will save having to put her pacifier back in her mouth every few seconds!

Undeniably cute! There's something so dear about his eyes when he's sucking his thumb. They show pure contentment.
