In the last six months, a great deal of change has been introduced into Alli's life. We moved in with my parents, she became a big sister, Mommy got sick, Daddy left for post, we moved to Vietnam. Makes me want to get my own Soothie. During this time, the Soothie began making guest appearances during the day and in the last two weeks, I decided that enough was enough.
It has been a rough couple of days for the members of Operation Soothie. Allison went on a sleep strike and stayed up the entire first night and skipped her nap the next day. Since then, she actually did pass out and has had 2 fairly successful nights of sleep and 2 fairly successful naps. I am proud of her because I know it was a hard thing to give up, which is obvious from these pathetic and endearing pictures.
