…you see this face? This is the face of a big boy. Not a baby boy. A big boy.
P is really growing up. For only being 2 years and 3 months, he really has quite the vocabulary. He talks in COMPLETE sentences. He’s bossy. FULLY potty trained…poopy and all. AND THE BIGGEST NEWS YET….
HE HAS GIVEN UP HIS BINKY FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a milestone this is for him. You have no idea. Him and the binky…were quite the pair. I can honestly say that it has been almost 2 weeks binky free and he is doing so good.
For all you mom’s out there that gave me suggestions…THANK YOU! It ended up that he chewed a hole in his binky…which if you know him…he has done this many times in the past. He usually insists that I get him a new binky once it has a hole. So…up until 2 weeks ago…I would just give him a new one to avoid the tantrum.
But not this time ladies. Not his mama. This mama layed down the law. Once he chewed his final hole in his binky I told him…”We don’t have any more binky’s. That was the last one.”
He kind of looked at me funny…like…”yea, ok ma…whatever…give me a new one”. But I continued to stick to my guns and I REFUSED to buy any new ones. I highly recommend that if you are going to claim you have no more binky’s…to really make sure you have no more binky’s in the house. This way I wasn’t tempted to just reach in his drawer and give him a new one. I had no choice.
For some odd reason…he accepted my answer. He now tells me…”No more binky mommy. Binky has a boo boo. Can’t wear binky.” He really hasn’t even asked for it in the last week. There were a few restless nights…where he would cry and ask for it…but very few compared to what I thought we would have.
He asks if he can see it and I, of course, say yes. But, he wants nothing to do with it in his mouth because of the hole. Actually the last few nights he has slept with it next to his crib on the shelf so he can see it. That seems to make him feel okay about it.
I can’t believe my baby boy is now a big boy! I can; however, thank my lucky stars that in 2 months I won’t have 2 babies in diapers! Praise the Lord!
