Yes Mira, I’m sad that you are getting older too.
I would say that she is growing, but mostly she is just getting older, and slightly bigger. And thankfully, gaining a little more muscle control.
Richard and I can’t believe how committed she is to sucking her thumb. At first it was cute, but now we are a little nervous. It is her one skill. Spit out the pinky (an Eli term for the pacifier) and shove in the thumb. Cameron went through a phase like that but she seems a little more intent than he was on creating a naughty habit.
