I did decided that for naps and bedtime she could have her paci. This sounds like a great idea doesn't it. Maybe...ok well Sunday was the first day and man it was a rough day for everyone! I didn't realize how much Bean loves her paci. She melted down several times and I wanted to cave and run and get the paci but I didn't until 4pm. I just couldn't take the crying anymore. I only let her have it for a few minutes and as soon as she dropped it, it was hidden. Out of sight out of mind. Overall I think we have been doing good I think she might be a tad more clingy but its only been a couple of days and well when its bedtime, she can't wait to get that paci in her mouth.
I honestly don't really know why I decided she need to get rid of the paci, but like with bottles I pick these dates in my head and do it. Lilly was off all bottles by her first birthday, so hopefully by this time next year she will be done with paci's too!
On a side note, I do think in the past couple of days, Lilly has been babbling and really is trying to communicate a lot more with us. No real words other then "all done" but she says something like "I want or I get or I mine" all the time when she is pointing and wanting something. Its really cute, I will attempt to get a video but sometimes its just not possible.
