23 Months Today!

We’re enjoying a fun visit with Rolf’s parents.  Rudy is pretty pleased to have Oma and Opa’s undivided attention during the day while the big kids are at school and Rolf is at work.  🙂  Rudy is also very pleased with Oma’s stellar sewing skills as his defective pacifiers are now repaired.  You may recall from past posts that Rudy’s favorite toy is the Wubba-Nub pacifier (introduced to him by cousin Becky when he first came home from the hospital)…a cute, small-enough-to-hold stuffed animal with a pacifier sewn to it’s mouth.  Rudy has about 6 of these little treasures now and in the past several weeks, he has managed to bite right through the nipple of the pacifier forcing me to cut the nipple off so he doesn’t choke on the little pieces he bites off.  Well, clearly he is getting too old for the pacifier and yet developmentally he could still use the “self-soothing” benefits of the darn thing.  So, we were getting pretty desperate as we were down to our last pacifier.  Then yesterday Oma did her magic and managed to take off the old, nipple-less paci and sew on a NEW one…just like that…no special sewing machine…just a needle and regular thread through thick rubber!  Well, at any rate, Rudy is back in paci-heaven with all of his Wubba-Nubs repaired with pacifiers we brought home from the hospital.  Happy 23 Months Little Man!!!  Enjoy those pacifiers while you can…it won’t be long before they go “Bye-Bye” like Wilson and Maxi’s did about 12 and 10 years ago!

Rudy LOVES his paci!
How many can you fit in your mouth at a time?
Two! How about Three?

  1. Well, Rudy, this Grandma is not a seamstress like Oma so take advantage of her expertise! The Geyling side of your family definitely can build and sew.. Watch and learn, okay?

    Hi to all!

  2. I am so glad to know that you got him new pacifiers. The old ones can be such a danger. We just heard a heartbreaking story of a 7-month old that choked to death on a piece of his pacifier that had broken off. He was the nephew of some friends of ours. No more than they cost, I’d say they need to be replaced often!

  3. love the burger hat……..think I mentioned, our Nick had the same, we call…hospital pacie……….eventually he had a paci holder; just the ring{no nipple} with a baby washcloth to hold…….we do whatever……….he is now in 6th, started middle school……so many blessings to all of you, Nick’s Grandma
