And I just want to note that I think Nat has stopped sucking her thumb! And all by herself I might add. Byron and I had not been pushing the issue but we noticed last week that at bedtime she no longer went to town on the thing like usual. I asked her teacher about it and she did say that when she painted their nails the other day she made sure to mention that they shouldn't put their fingers in the mouths and mess up their nails. Well that was right up Ms. Nat's alley, heaven forbid if her nails chips :) BUT the icing on the cake might have been her BFF Ana Claire. According to Mrs. Diane Nat started sucking her thumb at the table one day and Ana Claire (a sassy little thing) told Nat that "only babies suck their thumbs." Mrs. Diane said Nat didn't miss a beat and told Ana "I no baby!" and from that day on has been very aware of putting her fingers/thumb in her mouth. THANK YOU ANA CLAIRE!
So we will see if it last, or if she regresses when baby sister gets here but I sure hope so. Might save us some orthodontic bills in the future! As for the pink blanket, she may be moving off to college with that thing..LOL
