the end of the paci era

Wednesday night Millie's pacifier (more affectionately known as "paci") broke.  She was only using it for sleeping and we were really wanting to put an end to it soon since it's affecting her teeth.  So, having it break was really a great way to put an end to the paci era.  But, with the baby coming soon, who will probably have a paci, I'm not so sure the timing is that great...

Chad put her to bed last night and said it took awhile to get her to calm down.  She has now been in bed for 45 minutes babbling the entire time.  Normally she falls asleep within minutes.  But at least she's not crying for "paci."  She realizes that it broke and is now gone.  However, I'm not sure who's suffering more right now - her, Addie, or mommy.  Poor Addie is trying to take her nap with little sister on the bunk below her babbling incessantly.  Poor mommy is extremely tired after a morning of running the girls around town on errands and just wants to take a nap.  I'm sooo close to pulling out the back-up paci and sticking it in her mouth, but I won't do it.  I don't think.  It would ruin everything, right?  Right.  So I won't do it.  I promise.  But it's so tempting.

ben gave up his paci a couple months before josiah came and cried the first few days but slowly got over it...but now that josiah has one i catch him all the time hiding in corners with it in his mouth...i keep trying to reinforce that big boys dont have paci's...only baby's. hope it doesnt take long for millie to adjust for everyone's sake!

Did you do it!?! SO glad to hear your baby flipped! Now for a quick delivery so we can all see that cute little boy!

Oh the loss of the beloved paci! I hope she adjusts before baby brother comes! Lily never took a pacifier, she just didn't like them and I was so disappointed b/c when they are little there are just some times where you NEED them to be quiet -- but now that we are past that stage I'm thankful I don't have to worry about getting her to give it up! (Though that won't stop me from trying to get the pacifier to work with baby #2 :)

Oh, how I remember that time with Henry! It didn't last too long though and he got used to it, and suprisingly never messes with Harper's. Keep it up!! You can do it. :)

Let me know how this goes, we are trying to decide when to break Titus of his. Im just nervous he will keep the other two up crying! Im also nervous he will resort to sucking his thumb. Oh, what to do???
