W is all about this fingers and hands these days! Loves them! He's defnitely searching for that thumb, too .... J is a thumb sucker and has been since he was 3 months old. He refused the paci and went straight for the thumb! Could W be following in his brother's footsteps?

Saffie is doing this too!! She spits her dummy out with her tongue so that she can suck her hands. She's 'latched on' to her thumb about 3 times so far and seems to love it! DD1 was never a thumb sucker

DS is all about the fingers. He quite often has two in his mouth. I've never offered him a pacifier, and he's not voracious about it, but he does it quite a bit. DD hardly ever did this (no paci there either) so it's new for me. I kind of hope it doesn't get to be too much of a habit but so far so good.

my DS is the same way - he has found his thumb a couple of times (usually he tries to get the whole hand in there) and really goes to town. It's kind of cute - he doesn't fist his hand after he gets his thumb in there so he spreads them across his nose and face. He also hasn't quite figured out that he controls his hands, so when it falls out he looks at me like "why'd you do that mom?"

LOL! That is too cute! I could totally picture that face, too as I've seen it before on my own DS.
