Yesterday was a very trying day. I took dear 'paci' away for good. I really had no intention of even starting little William on a pacifier, but when he stuck a couple of fingers in his mouth on the day he was born we quickly requested that the nurse bring us a paci. I knew one day I would take it away. My original plan was when he turned 4 months old, but then I thought, "what am I waiting for?" I figured the earlier I did it, the easier it would be. Now my baby is not a whiny little crying baby for the most part. The only time he actually cries is if he is hungry or sleepy. Normally we would stick the paci in his mouth and he would sleep. Well, now he cries for about 10 minutes and then goes to sleep. Everyone thinks I am the mean and evil mother but I am very consistent when it comes to raising my children. I had to do the same with Briahnna when she was the same age. She survived. William will probably get over it in a few days. Most all of my friends and family thought this baby would be the spoiled one...WRONG!!! He gets the same treatment the others did just minus all the bells and whistles. I better go have an extra cup of coffee this morning so I can be fully alert to handle the little boy. Have a great day!
