Baba Still Here and Momma is in the Fetal Position

We survived the weekend. One very hormonal mom, two rambunctious kiddos, and one of those is supposed to be kicking the baba habbit. . .Can you say, "LONG WEEKEND!?" I lost 5 pounds, all of which was water weight, I'm sure, but who cares? Listen to me, if you weigh 3 pounds less when you take off your shoes, that is 3 pounds you have LOST!!
We tried to kick the baba habit, but that came back to bite me in the butt. Let's just say Mama caved--BIG TIME!! To be fair, Kady was screaming for the baba for a LONG time, and Kyler was pleading her case ("Mom, PLEASE give it to her.") Never fear, the baba will eventually get in the way of her braces, and she will have to give it up. Just don't make fun of the girl in kindergarden with the pacifier--she's MINE!

Don't stress, girl. Surely she will eventually give it up. Gracie still has a bottle, and I haven't even tried to take it away. I keep thinking, she's still so little, and she's growing up fast enough. If she wants her bottle a while longer, so be it. And while she has all the "potty cues" down pat, I'm not even working very hard on the potty training. I'm just not emotionally or mentally prepared to start something that I will stress over all day, every day. I'm going to wait a little longer till she's good and ready and maybe it won't be so hard... Good luck! And don't be ashamed to give that precious baby her baba for a while longer. :-)
