How We Went Paciless


Jayden at 5 months (October 2008).

At 23 months, we hid them.

And he didn’t even notice.

Hold the applause :).

Kiddo number two probably won’t be given one.

I’m taking a trip down memory lane through photos of Jayden I never edited or photos I feel need to be re-edited. His first year was a blur for me, but luckily I did take a lot of pictures. This trip through my photo collection is something I need to do for myself and boy before planning to extend our family.

    Sleeping babies just kill me! The twins just turned 2, and seeing these pictures reminds me how much I miss watching them sleep when they were teeny tiny. That and the swallowing noises they made when they were breastfeeding or taking a bottle. All this baby talk makes my uterus itch! lol
    P.S. Careful what you wish for, Sheena! I might show up to BlogHer with a suitcase full of produce!

    These are such beautiful shots! Hooray for no paci! I took Willie's away at 3 months so he improvised by sucking his tongue. Since I won't be having any more, I will put my money in his braces fund :-) Come by and see the 6 month photo I posted of a chubby Willie.

    I can't remember the age when we got rid of them. We told our DS he should give them to other, younger kids who didn't have one of their own. We left them out for Fairy Linda. She took them and left a thank you note and a few books for his generosity.

    Look at those beautiful eyes *awww*. This is good you are taking the time to go through them. You don't want to end up like me, four kids and 7.2 billion pictures all over the place, lol.

    What a sweetheart. Evan does use a pacifier, mostly at night. It's probably time to go ahead and hide them, but part of me aches at the thought of that.
