the challenge Melissa set for herself!


A goal it seemed Melissa had set for herself was to suck her thumb. It was not that easy, but she was determined. She put her thumb up, looked at it, and tried to get it into her mouth. It missed and went to the side. She spent almost all of one day trying hard to get her thumb into her mouth. Melissa was determined and would not give up. I felt helpless. Finally after a whole day of hits and misses she got it right.
Melissa had found her own comfort. She was so clever and I was proud of her hard earned milestone. Melissa did love her thumb. We could never have given her a dummy, as they were all too big for her little wee mouth. It was almost as though Melissa had worked that out for herself. - our clever wee girl :)
