Miriam is completely addicted to her thumb. Awake, asleep, happy, sad, bored, excited? Thumb in mouth. Nom, nom, nom.
For some reason grabbing both sides of her bouncy chair simultaneously qualifies as a super-fun, thumb-relinquishing activity. This qualifies, but eat doesn’t.
I have to force her thumb out of her mouth to feed her.
There are other occasions when you’ll find her without a thumb in her mouth—usually if she is chewing on a toy or someone else’s thumb or a blanket.
Also, she’ll sometimes remove it to give great big smiles.
I love this thumb-sucking girl!
