big changes for the big girl

once we found out that newbaby was a girl, we decided that avery and newbaby could share a room (or at least we would try) so that means avery got a new bed. the first night she kept saying "i want da o-der bed." by the moring she was saying "avery's bed" and jumping off of it over and over so i would say she likes it.

so far she has slept all night in her new bed and still cries for us in the morning to come get her. also "boo yike it" and if that is where boo is sleeping, that is where avery is sleeping!

another big change for avery is no more pacifier. she calls it "pass" usually as "boo-pass" when she is sleepy and wants them both. she has not had pass for naps at daycare since august, but would still want it at home on the weekends and every night. we decided spring break we would say bye-bye to pass.

i have heard of many ways to get rid of pass. we decided to snip the end off so that it didn't work. we did that to 3 of them and then hid all the others. when she was getting ready for bed, she reached in to her crib and pulled out pass. without even putting it in her mouth, she looked at me and said "pass broken." i said, hmm try this one. she took it and stuck her finger in the hole and said "dis pass broken." we still let her sleep with it and try to suck on it anyway. she took longer to get to sleep. a few nights later she stopped bringing it in bed with her, it just stayed on the floor for a while. she still said "boo-pass" then she would say "pass broken." now, more than a week later she doesn't even ask for it :)

Way to go!! Mallory threw her "paci in the trashy". Peer pressure, her little friend did it too:) I thought it would be horrible, but it wasn't bad at all. Sounds like Avery did great!!
