yesterday a monumental thing happened... it should have happened about 2.5 years ago.
mary gave her paci away!
for over 2 years she's been waking up around 6am, we pop the paci in her mouth and she sleeps for another hour or two. i know the paci should have been gone forever ago... but i couldn't bring myself to potentially loose that hour of personal time in the morning. that's the only time she used it.
last night mary said she wanted to give it to a baby who needs it. i was excited and readily agreed! we went to his house, dropped it in his crib, and then we got a strawberry milk together in celebration together. she woke up this morning around 6am, danny gave her her cow to cuddle with (the plan she agreed to the night before) and she smiled.... but never went back to sleep. i'm hoping she gets used to it and just sleeps later but we'll see.
it's out of the house so there is no turning back now. :)
