Kicking The Habit ~ Day 222

So as of Saturday we are kicking the Binky habit. Saturday night went pretty good. Sunday nap, night time and today's nap... not so good. The crying and tears are so hard on mommy. All I wanna do is hold her. Problem is up until now she has relied on the Binky to help her fall back asleep when she wakes in the night. Now she wants to rely on me rocking her. So as much as I WANT to rock her, I have to stop or she will never be able to put herself back to sleep when she wakes in the night. I know this, but it is still hard. Although she will be my "baby" forever, she will technically only be my baby for a few more months and I want to savor every minute while I still can.
It is nice to know that even with no nap and lots of tears, my pretty girl still can be happy and smile.
Here she is reading in her Dora tent. Oh and chatting on mommy's cell phone to her friend Neela.
Funny, when the grandparents call she won't do this. Is she a preteen already?!


  1. Oh, she is super cute, Alisha! Asher will yell "Hi!" while we're on the phone, but the second you put it up to his ear or put it on speakerphone, he clams up. Hopefully he'll get over that soon!

    Thanks for the post! I love reading them!

  2. Kensi's daddy loved to sit in the bathroom sink and laugh at himself while I would be getting ready to go somewhere or was doing laundry. I have pictures but not a video. That's why taking all the pictures you can brings back so many memories. Love that baby girl. :)

  3. She's so sweet! I'm sure this transition away from the Binky is tough! Gracie sucks her fingers...I love the mirror picture! She knows she's beautiful! :)
