bye-bye tutti ♥



and that's it...

lucy was a tutti sucker for nap-time and nighttime. we would let her fall asleep with it and if she happened to spit it out, we'd take it out of her bed or then sometimes i even pulled it out of her mouth... 

we've talked it about for a couple of weeks now and explained that when she turns two, it would be time to get rid of the tuttis so that she could keep her pretty little teeth from getting crooked. we let her keep them until her birthday party (i wanted her to get really good rest... which also meant good rest for her parents...) and out of the blue, lucy came up with her own idea of what to do with the tuttis: she wanted to give them away to another baby.

so she said her goodbyes to the tuttis, packed them in a paper bag and delivered them to one of our neighbours... (when she wasn't looking, i had cut a couple holes into them, so that if we really had to get the tuttis back, at least she would maybe be unimpressed with how they've changed since the baby had them...)

i cannot believe how smoothly it went! the first night she was tossing and turning and asking for her tutti... so i let her come into our bed and as she lay in our bed, she remembered and reminisced the whole situation: "tutti, pussi (bag), hattu (hat), takki (jacket), ulos (outside), ylös (up... the stairs), ovi (door... knocked on), baby... happy" ♥

and then she fell asleep...

the next day, she asked politely for the tutti when going down for her nap. i reminded her that she gave them to the baby. ok. no problem. just took ten minutes to fall asleep. the second night, she didn't even ask for the tutti! and now when i just put her down to nap, not a word about her tutti...

and that's it...

i'll miss your little tutti-face my lucy ♥
