The One with the Pacifier Miracle

Friday, August 24, 2012

Crossing my fingers I don't jinx us by writing about it after only 4 days of success...

If you've read this blog for awhile or scrolled through the pictures you know that Fox is mildly (okay, completely) obsessed with his pacifier. He's been sucking on that thing all day every day since day one. What can I say, he's a sucker :) 
Getting a picture of him without a pacifier is a rare and beautiful thing.
His pacifier hasn't bothered me ever, I think I'm the one who needs it more than Fox. 
But "Chris the Dentist" has been worried about Fox's teeth for awhile now and vowed that we'd put an end to it as soon as we got back from Oregon. That's now. 

It's like Fox sensed that we were going to take it away from him because seriously, he's over it. He's done! On Monday we kept trying to give it to him and he'd chuck it across the room! It's been sitting in his crib ever since and he hasn't touched it. Not during naps, not randomly throughout the day, not when it's time to go to bed. He hasn't pulled my finger and led me into his room to reach in his crib and grab it once. He's played with Jane's pacifier a few times, but always gives it right back when we ask for it.
I'm baffled! Mystified! Astounded! From the boy who couldn't go 2 seconds without it to suddenly not needing it anymore!?!? Maybe he sees that we try to give the baby a pacifier and he doesn't want to be a baby anymore?
Whatever the reason, I'll take it!
Next step: weaning off the bottle...
