thumbs are yummy

These are the first pictures of Shallon sucking her thumb. Avalyn was a thumb sucker, also. I don't think that I really knew to appreciate the joys of having a thumb sucking baby, until my second came along without that thumb sucking desire. I love thumb sucking babies, not only because of the insane cuteness, but because of their independence in soothing themselves. Plus, no frantic searching for the elusive binky and no bulk purchases of back-up binkies.

I love the face guard thumb-sucking.
Does she feel the need to protect herself while she enjoys her tasty treat?

Oh, she is so cute. Can't wait to meet her!! I know Greg wants a boy but you guys sure make cute girls.

I totally agree with you about the thumb sucking. I really wanted Luke to suck his thumb and he probably would have if we hadn't given him the pacifier. I even waited until 6 weeks to give it to him and was secretly hoping he wouldn't take it. No pacifiers for any more of my babies!! I detest looking for the darn thing. Congrats!!

dang i just typed a comment and it got erased..here i go again...
i use photoshop for my headers but i think you can use picasa which is a free program you can download from the people of google(i highly recommend). you just resize a pic and crop it however you want. if you want to send me a photo of your fam i will play around with it...
