So I've noticed that people are surprised when they hear us refer to Avery as "the baby".
Yeah, she's close to 2. And she does lots of big girl things.
Like sleep in a big bed. Drink out of regular cups (I hate this).
And as of last night...does NOT have a binky. Because she's lost them all, I'm sick of searching for them and I'm not buying anymore because she's old enough to go without.
Avery is not too happy about the situation. This was her self-talk when I put her to bed without a binky for the first time last night:
"Binky. Binky. Find it. All gone. Binky all gone. Find it! No, binky all gone. Owie! Owie my mouth! Binky! No binky. Binky all gone. I fine. I fine. Scary! Scary! Scary! No. No, not scary. Nice. You fine. You fine. Nice. I sleeping. Binky!"
Repeat for....oh, about 25 minutes. Interspersed with some crying and thrashing around in bed. Followed by a loooong and loud scream it out session.
The baby is kinda crazy.
Wouldn't take her nap today, but bedtime was a little smoother tonight.
Next stop...potty training.
Don't worry, we'll still be calling her "the baby"
