Lil' Chris hit a HUGE milestone yesterday and last night! Yesterday, when I was putting him down for a nap I noticed that his binky was split down the middle! I thought..."YES! Perfect time to get rid of the binky... FINALLY!" So I explained to him that his binky is broken and he can't use it anymore. So we threw it in the trash and I told him that he is a big boy and can sleep without it. To my surprise....HE FELL RIGHT TO SLEEP!! No fussing or crying! WOW!!! Then he had a really good long nap too!!
When I put him down for the night, I thought he was NEVER going to go to sleep without his binky. He has relied on a binky from day 1 practically(see his special ducky binky above;). I think it was when he turned 1 when we only let him have it at night time and nap time... oh yeah and he gets it in the car too(keeps him quiet and helps him sleep;)
So when I put him down for bed last night, I was expecting it to take a REALLY long time, esp when he asked for his binky right as I laid him down. He cried for a little, but after 15-20 minutes of playing games with me...HE FELL ASLEEP! I couldn't believe it!! I thought for sure that he was going to wake up in the middle of the night crying for his binky like he used to when it would fall out of the crib, but NOPE! HE SLEPT THE WHOLE NIGHT THRU!! What a good boy;-)
When we went to go get our Santa pics today, I forgot to get the binky out of the car. As soon as he saw it, he popped it in his mouth and grabbed the top of his shirt like he always does;) He got me that time, but it soon will magically disappear or get a slit in it;-) ;-)
PS. Did you notice my new header pic? I'll change it to the Santa pic soon:) Plus I have lots more I'm going to change it to, so keep a look out;-)
