Well, as many of you know, I started weaning Elenore off her pacifier on Thursday/Friday. All was going well until Elle decided that because she no longer had a pacifier in her mouth that it meant she should become vocal… VERY vocal.
Now just to clear this up, she did talk before, and she was very vocal before, but this is a new kind of vocal. She now screams; loudly, for no apparently reason, other than to just scream. She loves to hear her own voice. The first time she did it I thought it was funny and adorable, second time; mildly amusing, 50 million times after that, highly annoying! She now isn’t a polite little toddler when I go shopping, or we go out to dinner, she screams, yells, and talks loudly.
Matt calls it her ridiculousness, because, it truly is ridiculous.
One good thing is coming from this though. Elenore is weaned off her paci! Whoo hoo!!!!!!!! She no longer asks for it. Which is awesome, and horrible all at the same time. HAHA There is not a way to “cork” her anymore, and having her in a car seat is a whole different ball game now. All well, we did this to ourselves! 😉
(Oh and just for a FYI: she still has her bedtime paci… I am NOT ready to try that one yet LOL)
