I don't think its uncommon for most babies grow very attached to something like a pacifier, or a blankie, or a stuffed animal.

I can notpry it from his fingers for days at a time. He eats with it, plays with it, sucks on it, takes it on walks, takes it to church, takes it to bed and wakes up with it clenched in the same fist. Odd? I hope his (eight) teeth are getting some good brushing.
Oh, and did I mention he can rip the bristles out with his teeth!? Holy death grip, I didn't think adults could do that!
