Since birth, babe has used the signal of eating his hands to convey that he was hungry. It starts out a gentle sucking and then turns into furiously munching his little hands like cobs of corn. I am thankful that I can almost always tell when he is hungry. But, he just starting sucking on his thumbs or fingers for soothing purposes. His aunt taught him to "soothe" right after he was born, but apparently it is sinking in just now.
He will do his tummy time or sit on his changing table with a hand in mouth gurgling and kicking his legs. I think that he is right handed as he can easy maneuver his right thumb to his mouth, but often uses his right hand to guide his left one in if he is having trouble. It is really amusing to watch him trying to get coordination of his limbs.
Sorry to all blog readers sick of babe stuff, but I am sure it will continue. I will try my best to intersperse other things happening as I do have a few other things going on, not just babe (but mostly babe - how could your life not revolve around these critters?)
