The Finger Sucker

As I have mentioned before, Abby LOVES to suck her fingers...specifically, her left pointer.  Matt was trying to discourage the finger sucking, saying that it would be harder to take them away than the pacifier when the time came.  I told him I was pretty sure finger-sucking would be the least of our worries!

Since she can't take a pacifier too well because her tongue is so far back, I'm happy that she can strengthen her sucking reflex by using her fingers.  It's so cute to hear that sucking noise as she sleeps!  *contented sigh*
