Norah has finally said goodbye to her closest and dearest friend, her pacifier. Norah and her pacifier bonded a long time ago in the NICU. Her paci has always brought comfort to her in times of stress, sadness and illness.
A year ago we started to wear her from her bestie, but the tears and awful crying that accompanied this was too much for this mom to handle. At the time there a new baby brother and many doctors appointments coming up at the time, we thought it just wasn't worth it. We did however limit her paci to her crib, and when she had tests at the hospital.
The year continued on and we encourage Norah to let go her paci. She continued to say No. We let Norah know she was becoming a big girl that needed to let go. She continued to hold on. When we moved to our new house we thought we should try something new so we cut off the tip of her paci hoping this would break her tight relationship with her paci. This just showed us how tight her bond with her paci had become.
