Oh and finger sucking: Ada sometimes sucks her thumb, but she wouldn't do it in place of comfort nursing. She's not a huge comfort sucker like my first dd though. DD1 also sucked our fingers and only our fingers, but I was able to replace them with a pacifier at 4-5 months. It was a huge relief! I tried giving Ada a pacifier and she just gagged, spit it out, and looked at me like "WTF mom??"
Jess: Lack of sleep brings out the monster in me. Most of the time now, if I'm super crabby, I'll stop and think and it's always a lack of sleep. It is dreadfully hard on you.
Pepper: I'm sorry you're so sick. I had something similar 2 weeks ago (I'm still on antibiotics cause it went to my sinuses) that had the diarrhea and I got dehydrated. It's scary when you have an infant you're trying to supply but my stomach hurt too bad to drink. I hope you start feeling better soon and that Ada gets everything she needs from you but not the sickness.
Thanks for the reassurances about the crazy in bed rooting. He's just so dramatic!
