As most of you know, our little Gianna loves her pacifier! From the time the nurse gave her one in the hospital she has used one almost all the time.
My good friend Emily will be glad to know that in her old age (10 months!), Gigi is using it much less. She still uses it for naps (although not to go to bed at night usually), and during times when she's exceptionally fussy or tired, but other than that you won't find her plugged up and playing happily anymore.
She's expanding her verbal repertoire all the time (more video on that to come later) and is also a lot more aware of her surroundings and thus less dependent on her pacifier!
Our goal is to gradually wean her off it by the time she is walking and talking comfortably! We'll see how it goes as we approach those milestones!
In the meantime, here's a tribute to Gigi's beloved "nay-nay" (she makes those sounds when she is upset and wanting her pacifier). Enjoy!
