Last call for the binkies

I was talking with my Mother-in-law yesterday about when her kids were done with their binkies and today decided to throw ours away. So I asked Emmalyn this morning what she thought about throwing her binkie away in the garbage. She was surpisingly ok with it and wanted to throw it in "garbageman" which means she wanted to throw it in the dumpster garbage. So we got all ready to go outside


Right before we went outside, not sure why she looks so sad because she really was so excited to go to the "garbageman".





She's such a big girl, I can't believe how calm she was about this whole thing.





Since she was so big I gave her a sucker and a Chocolate bar (the last of her Halloween candy finally). Now we'll see how she really feels when she takes her nap and at bedtime.
I have to admit I'm a little sad that one of her comfort items is gone, it just makes me realize how big she is getting. When she threw them in the garbage I almost cried but I was ok watching how ok she was with it. I'm really interested to see how she does at naptime and bedtime which is in 30 minutes. I just barely asked her if she wanted to go take a nap. She said not yet, then said "no binkie anymore", wow so impressed!

Emmalyn's first haircut

Emmalyn's hair has been getting so long and was always in her eyes so I decided to give her a little clip of her bangs. My sweet mom was able to do it so that I could hold her still (Em wasn't too happy about having a sharp item so close). We've always taught her to never touch knives, scissors or anything sharp so of course she would be scared of getting her hair cut.


Here's her bangs before we cut them

And now after. She was still pretty sad after the haircut but smiled as soon as my Dad came by her. She's only smiling in this picture because my Dad was teasing her here.

My little puddin'

Emmalyn has gotten so independant lately which I love, she's so big! After lunch one day she wanted a pudding cup and decided she had a better way of getting the goodness in her mouth.

Then decided it's best to just suck it out hahaha.


Caught in the sleep

Here's how Emmanlyn's nap schedule usually goes. She goes in her room at 2 and knows she has to be in there for 2 hours. She can play, read books, sleep or whatever but she needs to be in there for 2 hours. So she plays for an hour and a half, drops wherever she is and sleeps for 2 hours. So it's hilarious to go in her room once she's quiet to see where she fell asleep. Here are only a couple of those pics.


This is in the corner of her room. To her left is her bed, to the right is her changing table. We filled it up with all of her stuffed animals. looks pretty comfy to me.



This one is my favorite one! She is sleeping on the back of a bowl chair, I love the foot up on the chair
