Bye Bye Pacifier (Pass)

O.K. so we did it. We took the pacifier or "pass" as Gracie called it. She is such a great baby. We are so blessed to have a child who adapts very well to change. We decided to take the pacifier and the opportunity presented itself one day when she didn't have it for nap. We put her to bed without it that night (Friday). For the next couple of days, she asked for it, but we didn't give it to her and she went to sleep. After Sunday, she did not even ask for it again. She has now been paci free for 2 weeks. The best part is there was no reasoning with her. We didn't have to make up some story about giving them to Santa, the Easter Bunny, or the little babies.

Coming soon (October), we will try our hand at potty training...

Good luck with potty training.
