So FAR, So GOOD...NO more thumb


I guess 3rd time's a charm....after 2 previous attempts (one I borrowed that worked for a friend on her 3 boys, then 1 I read about and purchased on my own.....)I have finally discovered the miracle to make my baby quit sucking her thumb. No, I am not happy, however, YES I wanted her to have a full head of hair one day. When she picked up the habit of not only twirling but YANKING her hair out as she sucked her thumb 2 weeks ago I knew I had to get SERIOUS! She's been my little thumb sucker since she was about a month old....and I have loved it.....but all good things must come to an end (so you can have that ponytail you talk about all the time little bug!)....We started on Saturday so today is day 4 and even though bed time, nap time, and in between times too have been EXTRA rough, it's working!! As we head to the beach Thursday I hope all the cousins, mimi, and gandy will be ready for our big girl who no longer needs that thumb! You may be a bit of a handful, but we sure are proud of how well you are doing!

I did have to include some sweet memories of the love you had for your thumb....no matter where you were it was a pretty special part of the first 3 1/2 years of your life! and pretty cute too......
