Well, it seems pretty official: Miran is a thumb-sucker. I thought he might have skirted this habit as, for the first three months of his life, he only occasionally found his thumb and, when he did, never seemed too particularly interested in it. But over the past week he has become more and more interested in that digit, and now he is fiercely attached to it. It's adorable, but . . . oh, dear.
Also, it's his left thumb that he sucks -- do you suppose that means he's left-handed?
