the surrendering of the pacifiers
June marked the end of yet another era! It's no exaggeration that Miles hardly went 15 consecutive minutes the first two years of his life without a pacifier in his mouth. As such, we had real concerns about how we were EVER going to get him [or his brother, for that matter] to 'kick the habit'. Thankfully we got a great tip from some friends, to trim the nipple a tiny bit at a time until they lost interest. Sure enough, it worked! About three snips in, both boys were bored with what was once considered a lifeline.
