Slightly Better

So it wasn't all horrible after all...

Even if Molly found something much more appealing to focus on off camera every time.

And an update: We gave her back the pacifier. For the love of God. I couldn't take it any more. As far as I'm concerned, she can suck on that thing until she goes off to college. We all need some sleep right now while we can still get it.

Grandma Allison is here visiting, I took my final exam for my online class (so that's over, thank goodness), Porter had his last day of school before the break, we had his 5th birthday party (a smashing success), and we are almost all geared up for Christmas. We are also camping out at a forest service cabin on Sunday night, and there is going to be a lunar eclipse (with predicted clear skies). Excitement and holiday cheer all around.


  1. Molly cracks me up--she is definitely not going to have anything to do with Santa. The pictures are so incredibly cute!

  2. Love the pictures! Happy Holidays to you and your entire family.

  3. Our daughter was a 'paci-junky' too. We went thru the same process. Nora's speech therapist said, "You have to take away the pacifier...". And we would try. I finally replied to the therapist, how about you come over and spend a night at our house when she doesn't have her binky? I think we finally made it totally disappear when Nora was 3+ years old...almost 4. It was a struggle. You post made us both laugh out loud! You're a great writer!
