sassy is broken...

Oh sweet Ilsa, today I discovered that your beloved sassy (pacifier) had cracked. We promised you that we wouldn't buy you another one. I never thought I'd be sad about it, but I really am. You loved it so much. It helped comfort you when your teeth were coming in; when you missed Mommy and Daddy; on takeoff and landing on trips up to visit your Grandmas and Grandpas; sleeping when the storms blew over our home.


When I told you it was broken and had to go into the garbage, your face showed your heartbreak. I understand. You did a great job sleeping at naptime and going to bed tonight. Sweetheart, Mommy and Daddy will be here to comfort you. Lord willing, when you know Him, He will be your comforter forever.

Love, Mommy

i was just telling vince last night that i know the time is soon coming that asher needs to give up his paci - and i know it's time and it'll be good to have it gone - but there is a small part of my heart that feels sad about it. i guess in some way it marks the fact that he really is growing up and no longer my little baby. good job illy on being such a big girl!

Oh no! This post makes me sad. She's growing up! It happens to the best of us!

What a big brave girl!
