The Paci is DEAD.....NO resurrections this time

Just want to start this post off with asking for no judgement okay?!?! Or you can judge just keep it to yourself because I don't wanna hear it;-)

Charli is 3 years and 4 months old and yes she has still been taking a Paci at bedtime and nap time. I know! I KNOW!! But as of 2 weeks ago the Paci died and will not be back!! That's a fact Jack!  The first week was well pretty much H-E- double hockey sticks. The first night she cried and cried and sobbed for over an hour and it completely broke my heart:-( The next night was around 45 mins and it got less and less after that til she now just goes to bed without it!  Success!!!!  It was really upsetting to see her so heartbroken.  It was like she was mourning her Paci!  I'm not talking about fit throwing crying but the real I'm sad kind of crying:-( It may sound silly but it was kinda sad to me too because it was the last thing that resembled "baby" for Charli!

A wise friend who had kids before me told me to get rid of it around 9 mos so that they wouldn't get attached but of course I didn't listen!  I was kicking myself in the rear for sure and if your reading this you are my witness that Addy Cole will NOT have a Paci past 9 mos:-).

Our Family is Complete!!

Adelynn Cole Raley completed our family of five on March 26, 2013.  She was 7lbs 6oz of pure sweetness!   We didn't find out if we were having a girl or a boy until she was born and it was so exciting!!! I highly recommend waiting for at least one of your children! I'm not gonna lie I had wanted a boy because I thought it would keep Charli from being a "middle" child if she was the only girl and girls are way more expensive so I had my mind set on it being a boy! I can't even imagine anything other than our precious Addy Cole!  It took me a whole second to completely fall in love with her!

I mean how stinking precious is that?!

Her brother was pretty smitten with her as soon as he saw her! He tells her everyday how beautiful she is and can't get enough Addy Cole kisses:-)

Her sister on the other hand was not as thrilled at first! This was pretty much Char's attitude the whole time we were in the hospital:-)

Fast forward 6 months through a move to a new town, Gunner starting Kindergarden, and now Charli  LOVES her sister like a best friend! She knows how to make Adelynn laugh out loud!

Adelynn is such a happy baby and you can't help but smile when you see her because she is always  smiling!She just radiates JOY!  She is most definitely our Sunshine:-)
