On the way home

I've posted pictures of Levi with a paci before, but we still haven't had much luck getting him to KEEP it in. I would have to hold it when he'd take it (which wasn't often). He's had it in this time for quite a while. If he'd start taking one regularly, it would end his crying spells. He cries, wants to suck- but doesn't want to eat. If I nurse him he gets mad bc he doesn't want to eat and then he spits up. I've had two kids who wouldn't take a paci, one who took one for about 9 months (bc I ttok it away- wasn't about to let my baby become dependent on it and couldn't stand what it looked like to have a child walk around with one), and one who took one for 2.5 years... And I preferred the taking it for 2.5 yrs. I only let him have it at bedtime or if we were out and about and he was tired (which equals a tantrum). I could give him the paci and get done what I needed (I also had a 3 year old and a 1 year old at this time). It was wonderful! So, yes- I'd very much like for him to REALLY take one- and keep on taking it!
(And hurray- he's STILL sucking away on it after I typed all that with my thumbnails :)
