The soother has been snipped. It was definitely time. When Van saw it he thought that it was broken. He was a bit freaked out by it actually. He didn't want to use it or even hold it and was convinced that his daddy would be able to fix it.

Sleep since the cut has been interesting. Last night he cried for a good 30 minutes before falling asleep. Today during nap he was up for an hour and a half before finally falling asleep. Tonight, however, there were no tears.

We put his soother in a special box on his dresser. He's giving it to the soother fairy, who is going to come tonight and leave him a special toy. Will this help his grieving? I don't know. But I do know that with time he'll be okay. He's becoming a big boy.

Van, how exciting that the Soother Fairy visited you! Let me know what gift she left for you.

That's a well worn looking soother.
