Walkin' and Thumb Suckin'

Well, not at the same time actually. This week we are having GREAT weather so the kids and I have walked in the neighborhood for two days straight. We don't walk a lot, because we don't have sidewalks and well, 9 people takes up a lot of room on the road. But, with this weather we couldn't resist. And, I've got to lose this baby weight somehow. Yesterday we walked for about an hour and today we walked to the neighborhood park, had a picnic lunch with friends and walked back. (It was about a 20 minute walk there and a 20 minute walk back.) We had the big double stroller and the little umbrella stroller. I think we'll make it a regular thing.

Bailey has found her thumb. She has been sleeping through the night for about a week now (I'm talking at least 10 hours here) although she's always been a sleepy girl. I don't know what to do about that little thumb. Bethany sucks her thumb and at 7 years old she's still sucking away-but only at home. Poor thing will need some major orthodontic help in a few years. So, do I try and give her a paci, so I can take it away later, or just let her be? At 10 hours a night, I think I might just let her be.

She does look cute. And she is starting to "talk" to me and smile more. So. Cute.

We have been having great weather! Tried to take muttly out for a walk w/ us yesterday but didn't want to go for a drag - so she stayed home.

As far as the pacifier.... Ryan was on one and he's going to need braces. We let Camden suck his thumb and he's probably going to need braces too. We did have Camden hooked to a blankie which he held while he sucked his thumb - as soon as we got rid of the blankie, he stopped sucking. Figured it was a better option than cutting off the thumb. :) - So, there's my non-helpful advice. ;-)

Bailey is too cute! Thanks for posting her pic since I don't get to see you all often enough!

I say let sleeping babies lay! Ten hours a night is dreamy-no pun intended! Let her rest.
