Toga Man




Our Oliver just loves to suck on two of his fingers and although it is dang cute we figured it was time to get him not so "attached". I sewed socks around the end of the sleeves on all of his shirts and jammies(we tried saftey pinning and taping, and he found a way around that). He has been doing really well. We have been doing this expriement for a couple of weeks and he only falls off the wagon every once in a while! We take his arm out of his sleeve when he plays and eats so he will still use his right hand, so most of the time he looks like this...I love it, just more chubby, cute skin to kiss!

That is so funny! Do you keep the sock on when he's sleeping? Jayna is totally a little thumb sucker, but we haven't tried anything to get her to stop it. Maybe if we do we'll keep this sock method in mind.

Man, what a mean mommy! Hopefully you don't scar him for life! Watch out, he might start sucking on his toes or anything else he can get to! Just teasing. That last picture is a really funny face he's making.

Rachel, we just started a blog, nothing cool yet, but you should check it out. I decided we needed something like this to keep in touch with family and friends that we sadly don't see often enough. Anyway, I found your blog and it is darling. Oliver is so freakin' cute in these pictures with his "toga". Say hi to the family for me and Eric. Love ya!

I love these pictures of Oliver. He has grown up so much. He is such a cutie! You can just see his personality in his face. I wish we could see him in person. Good luck with the socks on his hands.

That's hilarious! What a brilliant idea to sew his clothes! In those pictures, he totally has those eyes that just melt your heart! I think I'd be kissing him like crazy too!
