Well. Today is the day. We got rid of the pacifier. Nathan lost his pacifier last night and made it most of the night without it. So I decided we should be done. I put him down for his nap without the pacifier, and he cried for 20 minutes. He sounded really mad. :( But just as I was going to go in and soothe him he stopped. He slept for 2 hours instead of his usual 3-4 hour nap. But I can't complain. And in am sure that as he learns to fall asleep without the pacifier his naps will return to there usual length again. He only thing is, Nathan did not wake up happy. He never wakes up happy. It took a good 20 minutes of rocking and cuddling to get him through his grumpy phase. Here he is recovering. It's a hard life.
Nathan has been showing his own preferances lately. Yesterday he really wanted to carry around his children's bible. He convinced me to let him take it outside. Then he sat and "read" on the porch for 20 minutes.
