So this is goodbye...


Dear Friend,

You and I have grown so close over the last 4 months of my life. When I think back on all the times I needed comforting, you were there for me. When I couldn't be quiet during church, you were there. Through my MANY, MANY ear infections, I knew I could always count on you... Dangling from my bib, I always could find you within my grasp.



If I was missing my Mommy and Daddy while I was at daycare, you reminded me they would be back soon. I chose to play with you rather than take naps like my classmates. My teachers always brought you back to me when I dropped you. Yes, you and I have become the best of friends.




But today Mommy is taking you away from me. She keeps saying I am now 4 months old, and that you could really affect my teeth (whatever that is), or [gasp] that it could be you causing my ear infections. I know better--you would never hurt me. I overheard Mommy say that I only get you back if I begin to suck on my thumb, because "Mommy can't take my thumb away." Until then, our lives shall take different paths, but I will be missing you tremendously, my friend. It makes me sad just to think about it.



Sincerely,
Baby K

Ok, That was too cute and he is so cute! He looks like he is totally into that "paci". I was luckily able to break Cameron of his "paci" when he was 1 year old and it only took 2 days (whew). Good Luck!!

you are a brave momma. I don't know how in the world I am going to do this. I am hoping after teething is over for us.

Good luck to you!

Too cute!! We are battling the thumb! How can a 2 month old already know how to get that in his mouth! Every time we see or hear him sucking on his thumb, we are running with the pacifier-hopefully we are not creating a monster! Hope all is well!! K is beautiful!!!

Awwww! L sucks her thumb, but her pediatrician assured us not to worry. I fought it at first, but am over it now.
Hope he does ok!!!
