We are reaching quite a few baby milestones this week. In addition to cutting his first tooth, my son is almost sitting up unassisted, and he started eating rice cereal a few days ago. We are also ditching the pacifier. We are doing it cold turkey. It took a little longer to get him asleep tonight, but I think he is getting the idea that he can fall asleep on his own. It is hard to listen to him cry, but I know he can do it, and sure enough, he did.
