My Favorite Movie

I wish all of you could have been standing at my kitchen table watching Emily on the baby monitor tonight.
She couldn't get comfortable once Jason put her in bed, and she spent several minutes sitting up and they laying back down.
She had one binky in her mouth and after she sat up for the third time she found another binky in her crib.
She picked it up, pulled the other binky out of her mouth, and put the new one in her mouth.
Keep in mind it's the exact same binky.
(We have five of them.)

She sucked on the new binky for just a few seconds before she pulled it out and put the other one back in.
She repeated this action four or five times - back and forth from one binky to the other - and then finally  settled on one in her mouth, and the other cuddled against her.
I could not stop laughing.

There aren't words to describe how happy she is, and unless you had seen her before the formula switch, you would never know what a difference there is now.
I watch her walking around, exploring her world, giggling along the way, squealing when she stands and looks out the window...
I am grateful every day to be Emily's mommy.

Sam used to sleep with one binky in his mouth and one in his hand, he couldn't sleep without both of them. Funny kids! We're hoping to see you guys next week when we're up in your neck of the woods.

I'm so happy for you! I'm visualizing the whole "binky switcheroo" just laughing. Happy
