Before her 3rd birthday party...

she had to get rid of her paci!  We have several paci rules...when you turn one you only get your paci at nighttime (and occasionally at church if you fuss enough!) and you can't have a third birthday party with a paci.  So, last Friday, we went to Zeb's work so Leigh could give her paci's to the babies.  After all, they are the ones who need them!!!  

This is Leigh checking out the baby who is gonna get her paci.  The white ring that is flipped up is a mark of Leigh.  For some strange reason, this is how she liked her paci.


hmmm...


turning them over with a smile...

satisified that the pretty baby has them...

skipping off down the hall---very proud of herself...

celebrating at Cock of the Walk with fried pickles...

and feeding the ducks leftover cornbread...




Leigh actually has done great!  Saturday she cried her entire naptime, but since then it has not been a big deal.  It takes her a little longer to fall asleep, but I am sure that will get better.  Zeb and I are amazed at how much better her mood is.  Anytime she would get in trouble she would want her paci, or anytime she was tired or upset.  She now comes bounding around the corner in the morning with a huge smile on her face!! It's nice!

Now...let's party...
