Flashback Friday

I have never been a fan of pacifiers, nukies, binkies (whatever people call them) and we tried to not use them with our kids. Thankfully neither one really got attached so it never became a problem. In fact I don't think Braden ever used one. We would occasionally try to give him one and it's like he had no idea what to even do with it! Did we luck out or what? Neither one was ever a thumb sucker either, which is also a good thing since those you can't take away.

However, I think babies sucking their thumbs is one of the cutest things ever! I remember trying to make Alexa suck her thumb and I was SO excited one morning when she was laying in our bed and just started doing it herself.

Here she was, it was 2 days before she turned 3 months old....

Here she is again at almost 5 months.

I think that thumb sucking is so cute too. None of mine did it though and only one of the three had a paci. Cute pictures.
