Binky, How I Love Thee, Let Me Count The Ways


We have a new word.

"Ghee Ghee."

Which I LOVE, because that is what Gracie called her binky.  We figured it was because we called it "Gracie's Binky" and it evolved into "ghee ghee."

Kind of special that they share the same baby word for it.

Tobias is kind of last in the binky addiction.  Gracie was super obsessed with hers, Thomas pretty obsessed. Tobias likes his, but he has figured out (since in the womb) how to suck his thumb, so he can be happy with or without it.  His interest in the pacifier has grown as he cuts teeth.

And, no, I am not debating anyone on the merits of pacifiers. I still don't get a full nights sleep people, and as they say "ain't nobody got time for that."

I will say though that my mantra has always been "I can take a way a binky, but you can't take a way a thumb."  Well, I guess that came back to bite me in the rear (one of the few times I stood up for myself when someone had the nerve to debate me on my parenting).  Tobias has both.
