I love the little dimples on their chubby hands where knuckles will one day be. Baby hands are so soft and small. They are so innocent. Having done no wrong yet. When I was little there was a song that my mom used to sing to me and one of the verses said, "Oh be careful little hands what you do." What a good song to sing to your children the other verses say oh be careful little eyes what you see, ears what you hear, mouth what you say, and feet where you go. I now sing the song to Jericho and as I sing it to her I pray that she makes wise decisions in what she says, hears, sees, where she goes, and what she does.
I've always thought it was cute when baby's would suck their thumbs or fingers. I always wondered if any of my kids would suck their fingers or thumbs, I was a thumb sucker myself. Jericho was 5 days old in the picture above. Whenever her hand would come close to her mouth, which she never did on purpose, she would always try to suck on it. Now she is bringing her hand to her mouth purposely and trying to suck on it. It's so cute!
What do you think, do I have a thumb or finger sucker on my hands? Or maybe a fist sucker.
