One Step Closer to Big Girl

Addison has been down to her last paci for about 2-3 weeks. On Sunday she finally chewed a hole in it. I promised myself that I wouldn't buy any more pacis for her once this one came up missing or broken. I got weak and bought a two pack after watching her beg and freak out without it. On Tuesday I asked her teachers how many kids in her class still use a paci. There answer was only one child uses a paci. I asked, besides Addison? They answered that Addison doesn't and has never used a paci since she joined their room in August. My jaw dropped. She has never asked for one and sleeps the whole two hours without a problem. I was completely speechless and had been bamboozled by my two year old.

Tuesday night we became a paci free household. At bedtime she looked like a drug addict going through withdrawals. Her body shook, she kept biting her nails, and mouthing a paci sucking motion. Her incentive for losing the paci was to see Bob the Builder at the children's museum in Indianapolis. Today she collected on my side of the bargain.

Now we just need to get rid of the diapers and she will be stripped of all things baby.

We just love the new entrance into the museum.

Addie had to pay her way into the museum with her pacis. Luckily the lady had a grandson that gave his pacis to Santa and understood what she was doing.

The pacis were accepted as payment and we were off to meet Bob the Builder and his crew.

More pictures of Bob and our visit to the museum to come.
