Big stuff going down!

There's big happenings going on in the Malloy family.

1. We've started potty training with Asante. It's going great. He's taken well to the "just put underwear on and see what happens" method. I'm guessing he just doesn't want to pee on his new Elmo undies :).

2. Tonight we took away the pacifier. After an hour of crying, he fell asleep. We'll see what happens when he wakes up in the middle of the night looking for it. We haven't thrown away the pacifiers though. I'm not sure what we're waiting for, but I feel more secure knowing that they are there, just in case :).

3. Today was also day one of the weaning process for Aly. I think I have a 8-week plan (ish) to stop nursing...this will put her at about 10 months. WAY longer than I ever planned. Right now we're at a bottle a day. She doesn't like it, but she'll get used to it.

Anyway, lots of changes. We figured this would be the best time...I'll be done with school in a couple weeks, so will have the time and energy to devote to these energy-consuming parenting tasks. Pray for us for patience, and the kids for flexibility! They've been rock stars so far.

I just can hardly even believe this is ya'lls life. It's awesome! I love seeing a family of my peers in action :)

That is a lot of changes! Way to go.

We haven't mustered the courage to make the pacifiers go away. Let me know how it goes.

I was so nervous to take the pacifier because Asante loves it and has only fallen asleep without it a couple times in his entire life. The first night was an hour of crying with Jake laying beside him on the floor. From there on out, he'll cry for a couple minutes, but then he's out. The bad part is that he only takes nap every other day now. And he JUST turned 2 a month ago. So, it's a price that we're paying. Looking back, I'm not sure it's a good price to pay, but it's too late to give him back the pacifier at this point.
