Sometimes the similarities between Luc and I are amazing, according to Mummy and Daddy!!!! Luc loves his dummies and apparently, so I am told (a lot) so did I!! Mummy said when I was a baby she heard somebody (maybe advice from one of those "expert" parenting people) say that if you put a few dummie's in the cot at night then we (us babies that is) could find at least one dummy when we woke crying in the night and go straight back to sleep. WELL, that may work for their babies BUT it backfired on poor old Mummy. What happened was we would wake up and cry because we couldn't find ALL the dummies. Then that would take longer because mummy or Daddy had to come in and find all 4 dummies, not just 1!!!!! I mean who wants only 1 dummy when we know there are 3 or 4 in the bed!!!!!! (Some babies are just dumb in my 5 and 3/4 year old opinion!!!! But not us, no,no,no!!
I guess the other funny thing about us "Belliveau babies" is that we like to rotate our dummies. (See example in photo above of how to rotate the dummies!) I mean, why give 1 dummy all the attention. We are sharing caring babies and both Luc and I liked to have a handful of them that we would rotate around and give each one equal sucking time. (Luc even likes to rub one on his nose when he is tired.........I find that so funny!) When I was Luc's age I "apparently" called dummies....gummies?? Luc use to call them........Daa's" up until last week that is and now he can actually say "dummies". Mummy is glad he can now say "dummy" and not "daa" as sometimes it was confused for "Dad" as sometimes he called "Dad" a "Daa".........but of course we all know, Daddy is no Dummy!!!!!!
Do you like in the photo below when we were having a cuddle and our photo taken...Luc was trying to see around Mummy taking the photo to see what was on TV!!!!
And just in case I didn't believe Mummy and Daddy about how obsessed I was with having lots of dummies like Luc.......as always there are photos to prove it......
One day Mummy said she will tell the story about how to get your baby away from their"dummy addiction".......something we are going to have to deal with soon with our little man. I can imagine you readers out there (is there any one out there??) can't wait to hear that story!!!
