An "Accidental" Breaking

For the past five years...with about a four month break in there before Levi was born, pacifiers have been in my life. And a HUGE part of it I might add! Constantly looking for those bad boys when they disappear, always making sure we have it before we walk out the door, and more times than not having them stashed in various places! I have lost more than I can count, and bought more than that!!

But NO more folks! I am happy to say our house is a paci free house!!!! Levi is going on week three without it!!
So let me back up and tell y'all how this went down. See I was not even thinking about breaking him anytime soon. I have never been one to stress over the paci. I was thinking more along of the lines of this Fall, about the same time and age I broke Lane of his. Well rewind to June 29th, my birthday. I was out getting a pedi and Paul was at home, packing the boys to go stay the night with my aunt. He called me on the way there and said he had forgot Levi's paci! I immediately told him to go back home and get it OR go buy one! His just give my aunt five bucks so she could get it! Well that never happened, and he made it through the night without it, perfectly fine. And he made it all day Sunday, without it, perfectly fine. So, Sunday night, the big we or don't we give it back. Well I don't think I even stood a chance giving it back, because Paul was like NO WAY are we giving it back! We are riding this out! And so we did!
And I kid you not when I say this was a piece of cake! Not only did he not ask for it, he didn't even cry for it at night!! Not one!! It was so crazy and easy!
Truth be told, part of me was actually a little sad to be giving it up. Besides potty training, this was the last thing keeping him in "baby mode", and I didn't want to leave that phase just yet. He loved that thing to death and it was kinda sweet when he had it! But I got over it, and now my life is a little bit less stressful. No more looking for paci's!!

Here are a couple of sweet pics of my baby to document this milestone...

The love affair begins!!

One of the very first, if not the first, picture I have with Levi and his paci!

So proud of my big boy!!
