This was harder than weaning and potty training combined, well harder on me. Going to sleep, Sophia would make these sweet little purs of contentment and rub her blankie between her fingers. It was so easy to comfort her and get her into bedtime routine. You could always tell when she was asleep to because she sounded just like Maggie from the Simpsons. It didn't help that Nana's a dental hygienist and kept noticing her smile was changing ever so slightly.
As her birthday approached we began talking about giving her paci to Baby Connor, we even found a big girl comforter for when she went to bed without the paci. Admittedly, it hasn't been easy for Sophia either, she's a little out of sorts and trying to find new ways to soothe herself. Thankfully, anytime she asks for a paci we remind her she gave it to Baby Connor. This seems to satisfy her for the moment. Her smile is already starting to look normal, amazing. Now we're potty trained and living without the paci, my little girl is all grown-up!
