His binkie and his blanket.
Lately we have been working on weaning ourselves from the pacifier. And yes I say "WE" because it is also hard for me to not just give in to him having it when he is whiny or loud. Especially at obnoxious times.
For the last 2 weeks we have done very well at leaving the binkie in the crib. Sam actually thinks its a funny game to "hand it over" when I go in to get him out of his bed. But how long do I allow him to even have it at night?
I am TOTALLY against him having it in public after the age of 2 but I don't know how I feel about him having one after that for night time and naps. I don't even want to think about that weaning process. I enjoy my sleep too much.The blanket is something I can put up with forever. Grandma Bailey made it for him before he was born and he loves it so much. Its so cute to see him cuddle up to it when you lay him in his crib. Sometimes when he is tired and I am not paying attention, he will pull it out of his bed and bring it to me. Such a sweet boy.It sure is a pain to wash though. You have to time it just right so that its all cleaned and dried by the time his next nap comes along. And with Sam, that's not something you can prepare for. The kids sleeps at a different time every day.
We sure he love him. I just hope that one day we can be binkie free without any loss of Zzz's!
