Today I visited my office with Tommy. Since I had intended to work another week when I went into labor, there were some items I wanted from my desk. We were greeted with lots of oohs and aahs and he did really well as a few of my co-workers wanted to hold and cuddle with him. I made sure that no one was sick in the office before heading over.
When we were there he started getting hungry. One of the things he does when he’s hungry is start sucking on his hands, or his shirt or whatever item happens to touch or come close to his mouth. Usually he sucks on his hand around his thumb knuckle as he hasn’t discovered his thumb yet. Today he started sucking on his wrist… and managed to give himself a hickey.
Bill and I found it hilarious!
He’s starting to smile a bit more. Most of the time it’s an involuntary smile and he usually smiles when he’s half asleep or if he’s just pooped. I’ve seen a few half-smiles when I’m talking or singing to him. I’m hoping to get some genuine smiles in the coming weeks.
Have a nice weekend!
