*UPDATED* AND THE ANSWER IS (DRUM ROLL PLEASE!)
The soother is upy sidy downy (as some of our kids would say)
Wow, you guys are clever :)
This was Nathan's doing. I was busy in the other room and I heard Josiah fussing. After a little bit he was quiet. I thought he had just settled himself. Then later when I checked on him I found him with his soother upside down. I asked Nathan if he had put the soother in Josiah's mouth. He proudly said yes he had. Obviously it doesn't matter to Josiah what way it is stuck in :) Actually this is kind of the story of Josiah's life. He is pretty laid back and doesn't seem to care about much. He's a pretty happy little guy. He is starting to smile. Not just a quick little smirk, but a big long smile :)----- just not quite long enough for a picture :(----- But I am sure we will get plenty of chances to capture those.
Oh, by the way, I can sure tell if you are from Canada or the United States. Know how? Up in the great white north we call this thing in Josiah's mouth a "soother" and our friends to the south call it a "pacifier". Have you noticed anything else in our posts that we say differently, EH?
Don't you just want to kiss these little cheeks.

I think I'll do that right now!

Okay so there's something wrong with this picture.
If you can figure it out, I'll tell you the story!

When I looked at the picture my thought was nothing is wrong if he is sleeping. Keep up the good work Nathan!

I love it I never knew it was called a soother...as I show I'm an American :)

OK here's a question for you...how many of you children took a "soother" or a thumb?..see I'm trying to catch on to your language :)

We had 1 that took a soother, and one thumb child...not many for 9 children. I remember those days I would have given anything if the crying baby would take something, besides ME ;o

I look forward to seeing our laungage differences :)
