What's Done is Done

We made it through the night with no binky. She woke up at 11:30 and yelled for her binky and I told her we should go check and see if the Binky Fairy came. We went downstairs and found the empty basket and a bag of toys. She was very excited, especially with her princess flashlight. She ate some PEZ and played with the new books and blocks. I told her it was time to go to bed but she was so wired we ended up staying up until nearly 3 a.m. She has asked for her binky three times and each time I have told her the BF took them all. She's been okay with that and there have been no melt downs.

When I see her sleeping without her binky I feel a little sad because that is the one thing she's had her whole life. Each time she has asked for one it has really tugged on my heart. She is probably handling it better than I am :)

Here's the midnight picture from last night. Nice bed-head huh?!!


  1. aw...My Maria had a binky, she called it her cozza (? her word) It was the quilt cover from her baby cot, she only had it for bed or when she was really very tired, (never outside)but the time came for it to go and she did it herself, it could, 'go away in the attic'. She would often ask me if it was still there...
    It still is to this day...and Maria will be having her baby boy in September!


  2. What a great pic and I'm glad to hear she's adjusting well without her binky! Hang in there!!!

  3. Congrats! Looks like it went fairly well except for a little lost sleep!!

  4. What great pics! I'm sure she is adjusting just fine now. I wish I had thought of the Binky Fairy when my son had to let his go. He just finished his first year at UCF! Time flies...

  5. Aww little Cami is such a star!!! You should be evry proud of your little girl and you are right she will be handling it better than you do. Big hugs to you Dana. M xxx
