From the ultrasound pictures we knew Cole would suck his thumb. It didn't take him too long to find it and he is a pro at holding his pacifier too. (Thank heavens for those because this little guy loves to suck.) The pacifier he prefers is from the hospital and is open to see through. It's hard to tell here but his thumb is in the opening of the pacifier with his hands grasping the top. That's a simple way to get the thumb in!
Otherwise, the process starts like this - fingers in the mouth or hand close to the mouth when
wham - thumb in mouth. The shadows make it hard to see - but it's in there. It's staying in the mouth longer and longer too. I'm still not sure how I feel about it but really I figure there's not much I can do. He'll find a way to suck his thumb if he really wants to!
