4 days down!!!!

I am proud to report that Brian has been paci-free for four full days! And he's halfway through day five. On Friday when I put Brian down for his nap, I just never gave it to him. And he never asked for it. He talked for a few minutes and then fell asleep without incident. And the same thing happened again at bedtime. So I told Dave not to give it to him on Saturday at nap while I was at work. Not a problem. In fact the first time he asked for it was yesterday. It was while I was changing him and I'll admit, I panicked at first, not sure what to tell him. But I just said he didn't need it anymore, and he said "I'm big boy?" Yes, sir, you are. When he went to bed, he didn't even mention it.

I think I'd call that successful, wouldn't you?

We already had a plan in place. We were going to "forget" them at Grandma's house after our visit next week. I thought it was going to work just fine, and was looking forward to it. But, alas, he's one step ahead of me. I think I should get used to that!

Yay!!! That is so exciting!! We were told by Lucas' nurse that it would help him recoop better if he had it. So, I had to dig it back out and give it to him a few seconds AFTER he woke up from his surgery. I felt defeated! But I too have a plan! When we go back in a few wks to see his ENT again, we are going to give the binky's back to the Doc so he can give them to the other boys and girls that need them after surgery. But he still has Binky Bear and his new Kee Cat!
