So long old friend...

It's been two weeks since Lukey has had his "papi" (pacifier). It's been a long road. We were sure we'd get rid of it when he turned two. Then when that didn't happen, we scaled it way back so he only had it when he was in bed. A few weeks ago he was really sick, and he got hooked on it again big time. Then he had an accident while playing with Jackson and one of his front teeth got knocked loose. That night I decided not to give him the papi because I didn't want the tooth to come out while he slept. And it was just time to get rid of it! Everybody who told us "Oh it'll be easier than you think" was wrong. It hasn't been easy at all. It's been extremely difficult to get him to sleep at nap and at night, and the first 10 days or so he was waking up a lot, crying for it, wanting it in the morning, etc, etc. It's better now, though, and he hasn't mentioned it in days. So that's one more baby thing that is over for us. Time to get serious about potty-training, I guess.

Oh and BTW, the card for my camera is messed up and so that's why I've been slow about posting any new pics or movies lately. I hope to get it fixed soon because I've got some good movies of Luke singing. Stay tuned...

Jackson's 5th Birthday Week

Jackson had a lot of opportunities to practice blowing out candles last week.

First, last weekend we celebrated with the Fosters. Be sure and check out my Flickr page if you want to see the crazy people who are responsible for the nurture part of my nature.

Next, a stack of biscuits covered in sugar and honey at Babe's, our favorite restaurant to visit while visiting the Fosters. Jackson told us later he was embarrassed by all the pretty waitresses who came over to sing Happy Birthday to him.

At preschool on Tuesday.

At home with the family.

And finally at the party on Saturday. The wind was the uninvited guest, and we were barely able to get a candle lit for him. Luckily I think everyone got some cake before it blew away. (Yes, the cake DID literally blow away.)

Here are a few other fun pictures from the week.

Pirate Cake.

Choco Face.
