A precious boy!

I just might be a little biased when it comes to this baby...but I think he is absolutely perfect and beautiful! When he first arrived, we saw glimpses of Isabelle, but I think overall he resembles Ian. This means we may have another "mini Dave" on our hands!
One of the first things we noticed about him was his super long nails! Some of them were twice as long as they should be and were bent backwards! We had to get them cut so that he didn't scratch himself! If you look closely in the picture (above) you can see his thumb nail before it was cut!

During one of our ultrasounds, we could see that he was sucking is thumb/hand. I thought it was really funny because we have never had a thumb-sucker. It was very clear from the start that this little man really loves his hands. In fact, he came out with one of his hands up by his head. He likes to suck on them any chance that he gets! We couldn't swaddle him with his hands inside or he would just cry. We have introduced the pacifier to him to help soothe him, but he still prefers to sleep with his hands near his face.

Maybe it's third child syndrome! Gideanne was my thumb sucker, and she couldn't do it without her raggy in the other hand! Keep attempting the paci! You can't take thumbs away!!!
