Pacifier Check-In

Note: Urban Cowbaby is no longer a baby so his new blog name is Little Man and his baby sister is now going to be referred to as Urban Cowbaby.

We accidentally broke Little Man's pacifer habit.  He was only using it for naps and nighttime and we had intentions of pulling the plug by Christmas.  Being the responsible parents that we are we somehow managed to forget to pack his pacifier when we went on vacation to FL for a week.  Oops.  Turns out our initial panic was completely unfounded because Little Man only asked for it 2 or 3 times before he was completely over it.  Bye-bye pacifier!  Next up? Diapers.

At the same time we broke one pacifier habit, we started another.  Urban Cowbaby did not take a pacifier until she was 3mo and even now she's very picky about when she'll accept it.  With this kid, we're reserving it for sleep time only and car time.  Unfortunately, Urban Cowbaby did not like the car much before our trip but after 22 hours in the car she absolutely HATES it.  Now that we're home, every time we get her in her carseat she has a fit and cries and cries and cries.  It's awful.  Little Man hated the car for awhile, too, and I hope she grows out of this sooner than later because the crying makes for stressful driving!
