what is wrong with me?

So the cutest thing has happened in the last couple of days. Baby C has started sucking his thumb! Neither of the other two have done this. They have been binky babies. We have tried and tried to get baby C to take a binky, on numerous occasions, to no avail. Then on Sunday, at church, we had a break through! The little dude found his thumb! And since that day he has become better and better at finding it and sticking it in his mouth. 

Awesome right?

I wish I could say it was awesome. I mean, it is, really...but I feel so...left out now. Instead of being inconsolable, he is self soothing. It certainly makes for fabulous full nights rest, but I feel like I've been replaced. You pair thumb sucking and my decision to quit nursing...and I am a walking guilt trip! I seriously think he has some animosity towards me now. It's his eyes. And the fact that this morning he didn't look at me once while I was feeding him. I'm mortally wounded!
I will survive the distant stares, and quiet sucking of the thumb that is so utterly adorable and the cause of wounding to my soul...

But only because he is so stinkin cute! It must be the extra sleep I'm getting now that has let my brain function on more than 2 cylinders :) 

Go to my Flickr people...I put up some way cute pictures of the kids that I took within this week. And I want a comment telling me you've seen them! So!

Pin It!

Oh Mommy, don't let the thumb sucking hurt your feelings, he just finds it better then the binky.. and probably did before birth. He is so cute and hard to resist, I hate that you live so far away now and Grammy can't get her hands on him :( but I will take all the pictures your willing to give. Hugs to you all.

Oh so sweet!!!!! The sucking refles does win out ;-) one way or another. He is a big little fella and as cute as he can be. Hugs and kisses to him from G-Nana S. and to B and Miss C.

Don't worry to much momma, He will be attached at your hip for awhile yet. It will be the little lady that will be running head long to grown up before you know it. Hope you are feeling good.

Aww, don't let that get you down. Think of it as his way of showing you that he loves you so much that he is giving you some much needed rest. And I saw your photos on Flickr, and your children have the most beautiful blue eyes! If you lived closer, I would have you take our family portraits. You do incredible work!
