Bye Bye Paci

One of Jaxson’s comforts since he was a few months old, was his beloved pacifier.  As long as he had his pacifier and blankie he was calm and soothed; however, Brad and I knew that a time would come when we could no longer just pop in the paci and call it good.  When he turned two, we only allowed the paci at naptime and bedtime, which he did really well with.  Lately, his mouth has become very chapped right where the paci is, so I thought that this would probably be a good time to take it away.  So last night was the big night and much to our surprise, he did fantastic.  He asked for it when he went to bed and Brad and I both said that the paci’s are all gone and that they went bye bye.  He was OK with that.  We could hear him talking and playing in his room for a little while after we took him to bed, but there was no crying or whining.  Thank the Lord!  He also went to bed tonight without any problems again.  So I’m hoping that I’m not jinxing myself by blogging about how well he’s doing.  At least I don’t have to worry about taking his blankie or "cece" as he calls it, away for a LONG time.

    We are on day 3 of no bottle. I’m still not ready to give up the paci yet. It’s been ok but Evan will not take milk out of a cup. No way, no how. Warm or cold, sippy or with a straw. Nothing works. I’m hoping he changes his mind about it soon because he needs calcium.
