Trey loved his pacifier (remember the alligator incident?) Now that we weaned him from nursing, we wanted to break him of the pacifier habit sometime soon. I wouldn’t recommend our “oh, no! I didn’t pack any pacifiers for the plane ride to Colorado” method, but once we got over the initial whining and crying during the first leg of our trip to CO, we decided we couldn’t go back. He asked for it almost every day at nap and bed time, but only for the first week. He’s mostly forgotten it now. We looked all around the house when we got home to throw away extras. This morning he found a pacifier keeper (connects the pacifier to the baby’s clothes) and started to look around for a paci. I distracted him with a ball and he was satisfied. The end of another era in the life of Trey.
