Molly's 15 Weeks Old




Molly is apparently an extremely talented thumbsucker. Whenever we are out in public people are constantly pointing out her thumb sucking. Like they have never seen a baby suck her thumb. "Look at that, she is sucking her thumb. Come here Momma, that baby is sucking her thumb." "Oh Darling, look at that baby. She's got her thumb in her mouth." Seriously? This is noteworthy? Perhaps we should alert the press. I mean she is dang cute, but isn't this typical baby behavior? Now if she was sucking her elbow or perhaps her own ear, that would be impressive!

Miss Molly is also drooling a lot! Which isn't very ladylike, and neither are the soggy necklines on all her clothes. But luckily no one stops me to point out that my baby's cute outfits are damp.

we got that too with Keegan until we gave him a pacifier. that stopped the thumb sucking. But I seriously know your pain, so frustrating. Good thing she's so dang cute that you can overlook people's dumbness! :O)

People love seeing a child suck their thumb. Especially older people. But most of them hate seeing them with pacifiers. Whenever Beka sucked (or sometimes, still sucks) her thumb in public we still get comments. And I only got one so far about her future need of braces, and that was at the orthodontist office. It really was easier to stop the sucking from a pacifier, than a thumb. Catherine stopped sucking her thumb on her own around 6 months or so, and cried. And the boys I was just able to take away the pacifier. But with Rebekah! Aaaahhhh.

Sucking a thumb is very cute and charming in an infant. It shows an ability by the baby to self comfort, and also a degree of independence=love it.

Hahahahaha. I find people are just looking for SOMETHING to say. By the way, she is WAY cute!

Funny. People like to state the obvious. As far as a drooling baby, I couldn't live without chin bibs for Benjamin--he wore them non-stop for about 18 months. They're small enough to catch the drool, but not too big to distract from what he was wearing. I think I ordered 4 of them from babycenter.com

I'd stop you too...she's TOO cute! If you want them to back off a little you can always come back with, "And she's also pooping on a regular schedule now." People always find a way to end a conversation when the 'poop' word comes out.

She is so good at thumb sucking and sitting up in her Bumbo. I am impressed!
