My girls will snuggle with anything soft and immediately start sucking their thumbs. I gave Makenzie a soft book to read and some toys to play with, but the second she felt how soft the book was her thumb was in her mouth.
I must admit, I have not spent nearly as much time reading to Makenzie as I did to Maddie when she was this age. Maddie was already reading books by herself at 6 months (not literally reading). I've been trying to get better about reading to Makenzie and it is so cute to see her get excited as I turn the pages.
