For a while now I have known that it was time to get rid of the paci. I think I let it slide because I thought Peyton would have really hard time with it, and I wasn't ready to deal with that. Jon and I finally decided it was time last Friday night. We had talked about the paci fairy for a couple days before hand. We told her the paci fairy would be coming to our house to get her paci's and bring them to all the babies who needed them since she was a big girl now. Also, she would be leaving a big surprise in exchange.
To my amazement, she has done awesome! Friday night she cried for about 10 minutes and then she was asleep, and slept through the whole night. Saturday nap was fine, but later that day she asked for it once, whined a bit, and that was it. Every night since then she has been fine. Like she had never used one. Aidan did poke her in the eye today and she asked for it, but she was justified! I'm so proud of her and very glad we decided to go for it!
She did ask for some specific things, which of course she got. New pink nail polish, a baby with blue clothes, and some more tattoos. I threw a couple other things in the mix that I knew she would like, just to make it really special.
When she sees me wearing earrings she tells me she needs some, so I got her clip ons.
I worked that morning so I missed her actually opening everything up, but Jon tells me she was excited and liked everything. Aidan was apparently more excited than she was though. Wish I could have been there, but he did take a video for me! I am so glad that is done and over with, and that she did so great!
