Guess who's growing up?
My little Miss Sunflower gave up her pacifier yesterday. Granted it was with a lot of coaxing from yours truly, but in the end it was her that did it. We loaded up an envelope with all of her paci's (There were 12. She was very much attached to them.) put a To: Baby Francis (her newest cousin) on it and loaded it in the mailbox.
I'm not going to lie and say it was easy. She cried a little at naptime, but bedtime last night was really no different from any other night. (That means the girls giggled and chatted and played until I disciplined them by closing their door.) And she is very proud that now she is a big girl and doesn't need to sleep with a pacifier.
This morning she looked out the window and saw the flag was down on the mailbox. "Hey! They took my paci!" No. It was me. But I'll let the mail lady take the heat on this one. :)
Next step. Potty training. Ah-hem.
