Working on a New Milestone

Trying a Fork and Knife

Now that Patrick’s turned two, we’re working on a new milestone: He only gets to use his pacifier when he’s going to sleep. It’s been tough, as he likes to have his pacifier for comfort. It makes me feel particularly mean-spirited and spiteful to look at a crying toddler and not give him the one thing that would make him calm down.

His older brother clearly feels the same way. Several times when Patrick’s been crying and exclaiming, “Nuk! Nuk!” Alex has gotten him a pacifier. On the one hand, it’s really cute… but it certainly isn’t helping us keep a unified front! (Or perhaps what’s going on is the kids are starting to realize they can present a unified front against us… uh oh.)
