New Tricks

First up, Miss Penelope.  My Sweet P has decided that she likes her thumb even more than her pacifier.  I've seen her sucking her thumb in the middle of the night and now she's doing so during the day.  In the morning I often find a new tiny scratch on her face - despite scrupulously clipping her nails very short (I think it is time to also start filing them).   Of course now Penny's hands are quite slimy all the time! She can't make a fist so her thumb is in her mouth with the fingers fanned out on her cheek.



Ned has a new sound he started making on Sunday morning. I've included a video but the sound quality is a little poor (you need to turn your volume all the way up). Basically he makes his voice quiver at the end of a noise. He really wants to talk to us! I have also thrown in an adorable photo of him in Mimi's hand-knit sweater.  Ned's tongue and hands never stop moving...

SOOO cute! I always thought one or both of my kids would become thumb-suckers, but strangely neither of them did.

They are getting so big- and are so adorable! I'm sorry I didn't get to see you (and the kiddos of course) over the vacation. Definitely in the summer, though!

Max also sucks his thumb with the rest of his hand fanned across his eyes and nose. It's very cute and I'm all about self pacifying!

That was precious...

Alex started thumb-sucking with the open hand, but has since moved on to closing his hand and resting his index finger on his nose. It's too cute!

Love the new photos and video! That is quite a snazzy sweater Ned's got! Props to Mimi for that one! :-)
