|Micah's first night with us. And with his binky.|
But, I'm so very happy to report that Micah has been binky-free for three days now! Three nights without the binky! Two of those nights the binky was in his room with him, but he chose not to use it. (I should add that the binky was broken, and he knew I wouldn't buy another.) This morning he handed it over to his dad and asked him to hide it because he was done with it, and didn't want to see it anymore. Kevin brought it down to me and told me what had transpired. I bawled. Ugly-cried for a minute. Mourning the binky-baby, but also so, so proud of my big boy.
So, feel free to judge all you want about the fact that we let our babe have his bink until after he was 4 years old. It won't bother me because I think we did the right thing. And now I have to go order a Darth Vader mask, as promised, for a certain binky-free boy.
