This past Sunday, while watching my youngest son (Spencer, 7 months old) wiggle on the floor during Sacrament Meeting. I noticed that he kept fidgeting with his pacifier. He is a very happy baby 99% of the time, but he was getting a little frustrated. I resisted the urge to just fix things and put the pacifier properly in his mouth.
And I'm glad I did because, apparently, I would have done it wrong!
Here is how he wanted it in his mouth.
I would have never guessed that that was what would return the smile to his face!
Song Of The Day:
I have chosen the song "The Only Exception" by Paramore for this post based on a few different reasons. One, Spencer's preferred pacifier placement in this situation is certainly the only exception I have seen to the standard use of these thumb replacements. Two, I heard this song again today and remembered I wanted to use it in a post. Three, this is a love song, and it made me think of my love of my kids, especially when they just do their own cute, unique things like this.
