samwhiteleyMy 2013 in review. My year has been an emotional whirlwind of happiness from the knowledge of our little girl to the hilarity of my wonderful little boy and the amazing AMAZING accomplishment of an empowering natural birth! #throwbackthursday2日前
samwhiteleyI wasn't going to give her food until 6 months. since she got so mad when I only gave her the tiniest taste of banana last night, I have her some breastmilk and baby oatmeal, and she gobbled it up! I think we have a fun new activity :)4日前
samwhiteley😬 we are at a critical time folks. Will she keep taking the binky or is her thumb her new best friend? I don't know what the lesser of two evils is....2週間前
bonzombie Thumb: can't lose, easy to find, but hard to get rid of :-/
terriannlan0423@samwhiteley Vaughn does the same thing. I think the lesser of 2 evils I think is a binky because you can eventually take that away. You can't take away a thumb.
samwhiteley They're both horrid. Porter still sucks his thumb and it's ripped to shreds, the binky can be taken away in the end but you have to keep putting it in their mouth. The thumb can't be taken away but they can get it in their mouth themselves.
terriannlan0423 At probably 9 months (I don't remember exactly when) they start getting their binky by themselves and you don't have to put it in their mouth. I am encouraging a binky for Vaughn over his thumb because I would rather give it to him now and take it away later than not be able to take it away at all. Elizabeth had a "pacie" (binky) until a little over a month ago. It was hard to take away at first, but now she doesn't want it at all and doesn't try to take her brother's either. And she ALWAYS had that thing in her mouth. With the thumb, I had a friend growing up who sucked her thumb or finger until she was in college. She is 27 now and may still suck her thumb in secret.
ryannloftus We have the same thing happening. My oldest is a thumb sucker still and she is 10! We're going to have to use a dental device to get her to stop. Brock wants his thumb over the pacifier. I don't want him to have either!
samwhiteleyThis little one is such a mamas girl. She's just the complete opposite of porter loving snuggles and needing to be held all the time. It's much more challenging, but I really do love all the attention ️3週間前
