Day 66 - Finger lickin' good

Little Elvis has discovered his hands and fingers. His hands were constantly by his little face right after he was born, but this is different.

He pulls his pacifier out now and sometimes tries to push it back in. He'll also touch us with his little fists and batted at his mobile over his bassinet this morning.

He's also taken to sucking on his fingers. I'll give him his pacifier and turn my back and hear a slurping sucking noise. When I would turn back to him, the pacifier would be beside him and two or three fingers would be in his mouth.

This was most noticeable last night when I was trying to get him to sleep. I would put in his pacifier and put my hand on his chest. When he seemed calm and close to sleep, I would get back into bed. A few seconds later Bob and I would hear, "slurp, smack, suck..."

It seems like he's growing so fast!

Caileigh is constantly pulling her soother out and sucking her fingers. I wouldnt mind so much if she didnt get so annoyed that her fingers dont do as good of a job as the soother! LOL

Little Elvis hasn't gotten frustrated with his fingers... yet. I guess they are too new.
