I know this is not the best photo in the world but I really wanted to show Ellis’ new skill which is sucking his thumb! I’ve had some success in getting him to settle himself for this morning nap because of it (the afternoons are a different story, mainly because he always falls asleep when in the buggy or sling and it’s difficult to then put him down in his bed as well. I honestly don’t know how people do a strict nap routine unless they never leave the house). I don’t really know how I feel about the thumb sucking. He doesn’t take a dummy which in a way is great, but then you can’t chuck a thumb in the sea, so there’s not really much you can do if he wants to keep sucking it when he’s two. Then again, it’s not possible to keep a thumb in constantly the way Milo dos with his dummy, so hopefully it won’t come to that. For now, I’m enjoying the self settling!
We’ve been having fun chucking leaves into the air on the way home from nursery. We’ve been watching the Walking Dead and Dave says Milo looks like a zombie here. A very cheery zombie!
