Then I got all emotional and stuff

Big things people, big things:

Operation Paci Be Gone was a success! Kate has not had a paci since Thursday night.

We are so proud of her. She really amazes me. She didn't make it as hard on us as I thought she would. Thanks Kate!

But at the same time of feeling so proud (and relieved), I just got all emotional and teary-eyed uploading this next picture, because I realize it's the last one like this she'll ever take:

Dec. 2009
I'm blaming the fact that actually shed a tear or two while typing this post completely on my pregnancy hormones.
I blame a lot of things on my hormones lately.
Like the dream I had last night where Zac Efron noticed that I needed to shave my legs as we were leaving church.
Have I ever even thought twice about Zac Efron? Absolutely not. I prefer a manly man (and one that looks like he's old enough to drive), like say....M to the Izz-A?
Does Zac Efron even attend my church? Absolutely not.
Do I really need to shave my legs? Absolutely.
Again, with the hormones.

Congrats on the no paci!!! It's a milestone!

That dream is so funny! I always have weird dreams with celebs!! So random!

Congrats on getting rid of the paci!

I'm still blaming stuff on pregnancy hormones and it's been almost 9 weeks since I had Macho Man! Those hormones are strong stuff!

I remember the first no-paci night. Total withdrawal. No one slept, wailing ensued.

So so sad to say goodbye. It's like a little of your baby just slipped away, right?

Did I just make you cry??

I'm sorry. I'm welly myself. Those were some sweeeeet days.

Great post! Glad it was easier than you anticipated. I felt the same sadness just knowing it was the end of a stage.

Is it weird that I had the same dream? ;)

Rebecca Jo said...

Thats hilarious! But hey, I did just see a picture of Zac Efron with his shirt off - & all I'm going to say is "8 pack baby!"

Kasey said...

All I'm going to say is I told ya so! Ha! I told you it wasn't going to be bad. Congrats!

Talia said...

It's just the hormones. They make us feel some pretty crazy stuff, but what a ride!

Congrats on the pacifier. I remember those days --- 16 years ago! My, but time goes by so quickly...

Katy said...

Yay for the paci be gone!!! Great milestone, does this mean I need to get my (almost) five yr. old daughter to stop sucking her thumb?!? Probably, but how do I stop that ..when her sucking device is attached to her? Mystery I tell ya.
Love the Zac story.

so cute! I'm not preggy and I keep tearing up, the baby talking, putting away the outgrown clothes, BabyBoy being sweet to his little bro or even just playing, singing, or telling us stories, haha! i hope you're doing great!

Hey Hollie!! I was just doing some blog jogging and thought I'd say hello. I know how you feel about getting emotional. I get emotional every time my little guy says something the way it should be said instead of mispronouncing it in his usual sweet way. Oh well, I guess at some point he has to learn to talk right or else things aren't gonna go so well for him as a teenager.
