oral fixation 101

Our small group at church is chock-full of brand new nursing babies. At our meeting last month Ocean was having a hard time being with the other kids (we have a babysitter so the grown-ups can actually have a discussion) and so he was sitting next to me on the couch amidst the adults.

Out of the blue Ocean leaned over and whispered, "Mommy, I want to drink some milk from your breast."

I was trying desperately not to crack up, and not really succeeding. "Ocean, I don't have any milk in my breasts anymore," I managed to whisper back.

"Oh. Well then I just want to suck on your finger."

My kids are so weird.

FYI: No, I've never let him suck on my fingers before, and he's never asked before, and other than a couple of thumb-sucking buddies (their OWN, not someone else's) he's never seen any finger-sucking as far as I know so I don't know where he got that. Just so we're all clear.

Bless his heart! I love that he was so specific about his wish!

Sometimes Hank will still say, "I want to nurse," but he means he wants me to cradle him in my arms. Once, shortly after he turned two, I whipped the boob out, and he looked at me like, "Uh, I think you got the wrong idea! I didn't mean that!"

Oh Becky, my heart just melted. I love these cuddly little guys!

So funny!

I was getting ready to feed Leila yesterday and Joe was watching. As I whipped it out, Joe's eyes got huge and he said "woah!" Guess it was a frightening sight!
