No Way That Just Happened

Tyler has done some growing up this past week. We are very proud of our Half Pint. It all started with going to the hospital to have some dental work done. He was very brave and silly all at the same time. They gave him some medicine to make him slap happy and he put on a show for all of us, he did not disappoint. The second accomplishment was dropping his afternoon nap. It has been crazy with him falling asleep at 6pm and sleeping until 8 the next morning to going to bed at 10 pm and waking up from 2-5 am ready for the day. We never know what were going to get, but its all part of growing up. Lastly, we lost all 100 of his binkys and he finally went a few days without mentioning a word about it. Many people have tried to take it away from him, especially his Grandma Crawford who probably thought he should have dropped it two years ago, but no one could wrestle it away from his Kung Fu grip. Since Tyler has dropped those three things we thought for sure we were losing our little baby.
Tonight the doorbell rang while we were watching a movie and our neighbor Logan came over to say he found a binky at his house. So I thought no big deal no one heard that, but sure enough I look down and he is holding it out for the world to see. It was very subtle, but in my mind it felt like he was jumping up and down screaming, "I FOUND YOUR BINKY TYLER COME AND GET IT!" I tried to swipe it out of his hands but it was too late. Tyler had seen it and ran across the room yelling BINKYYYYY! As soon as he grabbed it he cradled it in his hands and said, "I wub you binky, I wub you." How can I take it away from him when he does something that cute? I have asked him a few times if I can have it and he just puts it in his pocket without a word. I don't know what to do, but I would be the worlds worst father if I took it away from him after the exchange he had with the bink after reuniting .

Stupid Logan! Jk- I don't know Logan- no disrespect! That is hilarious though! I say if it makes the kid happy... let him have it!

He is the cutest little boy!  Emma never wanted a binki, so I don't know much about taking binkis away (and the struggle it sometimes is, I hear), but that is a funny story!

That is too funny! That binky habit is a hard one to break.

How funny. My week was quite similar. We did the pacifier weening and it's been going great...until Friday when Jr. decided he didn't want a nap! Not fun. Our dentist also suggested taking him to a surgery center for all his dental work. His attitude about the dentist has improved so I'm hoping to go the regular route...Good luck on "losing" that binky again:)

I understand the dilema with the Binkie. Quinton and Isaac both had binkies. Good Luck!

Hey Eric and family! Carrie sent me the link to your blog forever ago and I've been meaning to stop by and leave a comment. It's been fun reading about your cute little family--I can relate w/3 boys and a 4th on the way. Good luck with the binky--I will tell you, it's easier to take away than the thumb. I've got one who's going to be sucking his thumb on his mission!
