Fist sucker

Teresa has taken up fist sucking. Sometimes she tries out individual fingers, too. It's slightly alarming when she looks incredibly uncomfortable with her fist or thumb in her mouth and yet pushes it further in still. But she's gaining control and seems to enjoy this sucking endeavor. She doesn't use a pacifier, but I'm fine with her soothing herself this way for the time being. We're definitely washing her hands more often now!

could be the beginning stages of teething! that and the drool... Simon is also shoving his hands and fingers in his mouth all the time. Then Joseph likes to copy him and I have to wash *his* hands!
