Bye Bye Binkies!

After almost two years of enjoying this lifesaving device it is time to say Goodbye! Last week we decided that since Nicolas is turning two it was time to get rid of the binky. He only had it in bed but he loved it and it was hard to see it go. It wasn't that hard to get rid of it, he just had a hard time putting himself to sleep. Now that its been a week I think he's officially over it. I told him they are for babies, he gets pretty jealous when he sees a baby with one. And I don't know what to tell him when he sees kids with them. We were in San Fransisco for a couple days last week and he saw a three year old with one, he was really tired and started crying for it and was pretty heart broken that he couldn't have one. That little thing saved my life dealing with colic and reflux, it was the only thing that helped. During his first 9 months he cried almost all the time and the binky was the only thing that soothed him. This is a huge milestone for us!

Yeah for no binkys! It's a pain to get rid of, but always worth it. Way to go Nicholas.

I remember all the books you were reading trying to figure that kid out! So glad the binkey finally worked. This is a huge milestone -- now I know why N was pointing at Hyrum and saying baby at church!
