Buck Gums

“Pumpy’s gonna have buck gums,” Dread joked as we watched Eleven slurp her thumb and finger with such expertise and dedicated focus. Habit or not, I’m grateful for her latest discovered method of self-soothing. No need to pop binkies in her mouth (I don’t even like the word ‘pacifier’), which she never particularly liked, giving me the gag reflex face at the artificial nipple shape. Her thumb sucking has made her an even easier infant than she was before—and in truth, she’s never given me trouble once in her new life.

Thank you to Mama Elle and starseed Reece for the lovely amber strand! They shared the amber with us as a soothing anti-inflammatory agent and a harmonizing immunity boost for baby. Amber is fossilized resin from prehistoric pine trees; electrically alive with solidified golden light. Baba finally made an adjustable copper clasp for the piece so Eleven can wear it with versatility—as a bracelet, necklace, and so on.
