These days it is so difficult to get a picture of Micah without his thumb in his mouth!  From the time he came home from the hospital he wouldn’t take a paci.  I have tried several times but he gags and just doesn’t like it.  Some people say we are lucky because we don’t have to worry about always having the paci with us, cleaning them, putting it back in in the middle of the night, etc., but I wonder what is going to happen when he is too old to suck on that thumb?  I hope that he just stops on his own but I have had many elementary school children in my classrooms who still suck their thumbs.  I guess we will wait and see what happens.  In the meantime we get a lot of comments about how cute he is with his thumb in his mouth.
