The Search is On. Most nights.

We give Gabbie a pacifier at night to help her self soothe back to sleep when she wakes up. It works most of the time, but every once in the while she drops it out of the crib. This wouldn't be a big deal, but she typically drops it down the side next to the wall, and the crib is so wide that I can't reach it when that happens. We have a back up always ready next to the bed, but we always check for original pacifier before giving that to her, because if she drops both of them we're screwed. We would be able to tell when she drops it out of the crib versus if it just fell out of her mouth, but the humidifier makes a sound that is almost the exact same sound the pacifier makes as it hits the wall. This may not seem like a big deal, but in the middle of the night when we're half awake and can't see it gets incredibly frustrating. Not to mention that we typically wake her up more while searching for the lost pacifier. We'll be phasing this out in the next couple of months, so we only have to do the mid-night search for a little while longer.

In other news, she loves carrots but it took her a little while to get used to them, and she made a big mess in the process:


They were even on the back of her head. She got a bath immediately after this picture was taken.

She also looks adorable in tie-dye:

These pictures just make me smile. She's so sweet! Andrew's "carrot" pictures look very similar to Gabbie's.

I'm so over the pacifier, seriously. But I'm also terrified of phasing out out, because he is HOOKED. So if you have any advice to share with me when you do it, it would be much appreciated!

Ay yi yi - yeah, Dahlia drops her pacifier out of her crib too. I always have 2 back ups handy!! I dread phasing hers out too. She's quite uh, attached to it. Doh.

Love the tie-dyed look! what a cutie!
