Alyx may be 3 years old, but we had the most horrible time taking her paci away.  I said that I wasn't going to take it away before we went to Florida, but it was my goal when we came back.
Nighttime is what I was worried about.  She never had it at daycare and pretty much during the day at home, but at night...that's when she wanted it.  

First night of taking it away was a success!  She fell asleep while sitting with me in the living room and since Tuesday, she hasn't asked for it once!  She even found one and threw it in the trash =)

A lot of our time this week after school and work has been spent at the pool.  

Emma has her first home swim meet this weekend and I'm super excited because I am actually off from work and we will all be able to go =) 
She's having a bit of difficulty in the diving area, but she's starting to somewhat get the hang of it ;)

So it's a short Friday Favorites, but our week has been pretty boring around here!  I hope you all have a great Friday and a great weekend!!!

Linking up with Karli and Amy =)
Also linking up with Liz, Christina, Natasha, and Darci =)

  And lastly, linking up with Katie, Tiff, Della and Caitlin =)


  1. Congrats on getting rid of the paci! My oldest had the hardest time giving his up, but then my youngest never even used one!
    I'm super excited about the What We're Reading Wednesday link up. I can't wait to find some new books to read!
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hooray for no paci!! It was so hard for my son but my daughters never cared for one which I was happy/sad about it! I hope Emma has a great swim meet and that's great you get to go. Happy Weekend!

  3. Oh I love your Reading series. I need to read more. I'll have to check it out to see some good book recommendations. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Go Emma!! I love how determined she is!! I swam competitively while growing and it is still my favorite way to relax AND exercise!!
    Have a great weekend friend!

  5. I am so glad that you get to go to the swim meet. And that is great about the paci and the easy transition! Enjoy your weekend!

  6. Yay for cutting the paci! Always a big moment! Happy weekend!!!

  7. My youngest got rid of his paci when a babysitter accidentally put him to bed without it and he slept just fine! I'm glad Alyx did well!

  8. BIG yay for the paci being gone! That is great! We have been at the pool too. Next meet for us is in February and it will be my girl's first one since she started this gig in September. ENJOY this weekend!

  9. Congrats on your daughter not needing the paci! Good luck to Emma at her swim meet! That's so exciting! Have a great weekend!

  10. We have to conquer the paci at our house soon!!! I'm sooo not looking forward to it!! Congrats on being paci free!!!

  11. Connor held onto his paci for a while and then last year he was like I'm cool with you taking it (not in those exact words) so that's what we did and it was so painless. Now, if I could get him to sleep all night we would be the happiest of happy over here.

  12. Woohoo for a pretty easy paci transition!!
    And I hope Emma had the best time at her swim meet!

  13. Yay Alyx!!! That is so very awesome of her. Isn't it funny when something we think is going to be so hard is so easy?! I hope the swim meet was a blast!
