I don't know what it is about my daughter, but when she's done with a phase, she just moves on without much coersion from us. Solids, from breastfeeding to bottle to sippy cup, now the paci. I told myself she would be done with that thing around 12 months, but honestly, she used it to sleep and I was just never ready to deal with the nights of crying, so I let her have it. Well, she was teething this week and more gnawing on her paci than sucking. She ended up gnawing a whole right in her paci. We got her replacements ones, but she just wasn't interested in them after that. So as of yesterday, we said good-bye to the paci. We tried to give it to her at her nap, but she just threw it away and refused to put it in her mouth. Last night, she went down for bed without it and was fine. Kind of sad. No more baby, it's slipping away little by little each day.
This is my new favorite picture (although, they seem to get replaced with great pictures every day!) This was taken with Poppi's camera of the girls in Avery's rocking chair. I think Avery looks so old in this picture!
Happy Friday everyone - I am still battling being sick, so our plans for Friday are kind of going bye-bye. Isn't it sad as a parent that you would rather have a good night's rest without your child than go out? Man, how my life has changed.
