We've hit another milestone: Macy has finally taken a bottle and pacifier. As many of you know, Macy has refused to take a bottle for the past couple of months and never really took to a pacifier. A few days ago, I decided to try giving her a pacifier since she had recently discovered her hands and was constantly sucking on them. To my amazement, she LOVED it! So after realizing that, I decided to give her a bottle and again, she took it without a fight. I was so overjoyed that I had to hold myself back from running into the bedroom to wake up Aaron who had worked the night before to share the great news.
Since then, she has been much happier in her car seat as well. Yesterday we had a long day out driving around on different errands/appointments and she had the pacifier the entire time she was in her car seat and she didnt scream at all!
I have also been sleeping better the past few nights as Macy only woke up once last night and as soon as I gave her the pacifier, she was back to sleep for several more hours. In fact, I woke up before she did and was able to get coffee, do some bills, feed the dogs and relax a bit until she finally woke up! I never thought I would be so excited to do bills in my entire life!
