A few weeks after Grey was born, I was amazed by how much and how well he slept...even all the way through the night! Now, my definition of "through the night" is probably different than the norm. I'm talking "sleeping though the night just as long as I want to sleep or want him to sleep." When Grey was able to sleep for almost 12 hours straight at night at a month old, I was thinking, "Where did this child come from?! And how did I get so lucky?!" I remember that it took Anna until she was almost 4 months old to sleep that long...if that. People, I hardly ever get up during the night. But a while ago, I figured out the reason for his sleeping skills. He sucks on his two first fingers. At first I thought it was just him finding his hands or whatever, so I'd plug him and go on. He'd end up spitting the plug out and getting those fingers back into his mouth. I've tried and tried to pull his fingers out and stick the plug in, but it always had the same result. Should I keep trying? Should I give in and face the fact of many future meltdowns when I try to get him to stop sucking on his fingers? I suppose taking Anna's plug away had it's time of frustration. But at least I could take the plug away and out of her sight! I can't cut off Grey's fingers! I know there are other options to get him to stop. We'll see how it all works out... I haven't gotten a good picture of him sucking on his fingers yet since he looks at me like I'm an alien when I point the camera at him. I'll try to get one soon.
