Be Still My Heart

I've been working on breaking Mabel of the binky. She's plenty old enough, but dang it. She'll only be 2 once. She'll never be this little ever again. Do I really need to rush her to grow up?

I vote no.

And as it turns out, she's a good self-soother, too. I've never had a finger sucker and she doesn't do it often. That's good because it might be the cutest thing I have ever seen (made worse by the darling pom pom hat).


  1. She's such a cutie! My pediatrician always told me he'd never seen a high schooler with a binky, so not to worry. They grow up too fast as it is!

  2. I had the same trouble with binkies and bottles with my daughter! A nice lady told me to snip a v into the end of each binky/nipple and she won't want them anymore. It worked.

    You know if your child is old enough to say "mommy, bwoken" they are old enough to be without them.

    I told her "oh no! they are all broken!" and she got over it the same day.
