A few weeks ago, I started giving to my baby several toys to chew, like sophie the giraffe and some soft toys. At first he was taking out his tongue, licking the toy and then he was making a weird face like he has been eating lemons.It makes sence as long as the only thing he has ever tested is my breast.
This morning was the first time a gave him to taste his bunny comforter's ear.It is soft and fluffy and he seemed to like it. Before I realise, he was sucking it with pleasure. After a while, he got a little tired and the bunny's ear was falling of his mouth. Then he was crying plaintively and I was putting the ear back in his mouth. He seemed so satisfied....
And that was baby's first object sucking! Besides his hands of course. The last few days his favourite hobby is putting his fist in his mouth and frantically sucking it. Just putting the hand isn't enough for him...he puts his whole fist in his mouth (and sometimes he's trying to put his both fists in his tiny little mouth haha) ending up with shawls alla over his face, hands and shirt!
The other thing baby loves sucking, is daddy's finger! The funny thing is that Phillip loves it too, so they're doing it as often as the can!Haha I love them!
Today, it was the first time I saw my son looking at his hands!!! Ok not actually looking...it was more like a squinted effort to look at his hands.Yep that discribes it better!
