It Could Be Worse Part II

July 23, 2013

From infancy, Miss P has sucked three fingers on her right hand while pinching her cheek with her left hand.  I first noticed the finger sucking in the hospital, the day after she was born.  You cannot  imagine my relief to have birthed a finger sucker.  No more putting a baby to bed in a crib filled to the brim with 50 pacifiers, hoping beyond hope that she might be able to find one in the night without waking us up.

I can’t remember when she added the cheek pinching, but it seemed harmless enough.  Until these past few months.  Instead of pinching her own cheek, she has a growing compulsion to pinch Annie’s cheek.  No sooner does Annie come into view, than Miss P pops those fingers in her mouth and hustles over for a little pinch of those Annie -cheeks.  Annie doesn’t seem to mind a bit, just goes on about her business, with Miss P glued to her cheek.

None of Annie’s cheeks are safe:
