Bye Bye Binky


Bye bye binky!  So Doug and I have been trying to wean Alyssa from the binky...a tough task considering Alyssa LOVES her binky.  We've let her have her binky when she naps, goes to bed at night and for the occasional car ride (to keep mom sane). 
So Alyssa has chewed two of her binkies to the point where there are now holes in them and she doesn't like the "broken" binkies anymore.  I have one binky that is still okay, which I've hidden from Alyssa.  For the past 3 days we've put her to bed with her broken binky and she refuses to put it in her mouth.  She has gone to bed with very little or no fussing at all.  I've shown Alyssa her binkies and explained that now they are broken and we can't fix them.  She hasn't asked for her binky at all.  Can it be true...are we really binky free?!

Awesome! And it sounds like she did it on her own more or less. She's growing up! Love you guys.

Avery was obsessed with a binky too. Shellie pretended like a cat stole it when a cat walked by. Then she quickly got rid of all the binkies and told her that the silly cat took them. I think it is hilarious that it actually worked.
