The Definition of Self-Torture

Jonathan was sitting in the "baby bucket" happily sucking on his pacifier... or so I thought. I checked on him when I started hearing noises of annoyance and frustration. He had managed to get his finger hooked around the loop and yank the pacifier out of his mouth unintentionally. Since he lacks the coordination required to put it back in himself, he was staring cross-eyed, mouth wide open like a baby bird and making "uh, uh, uh" sounds (translation: "I want it"), as it dangled in front of his nose from his outstretched hand. He couldn't do a thing about it! I had a quick laugh before I untangled the paci and stuck it back in his mouth. It's amazing to know that for now at least, his happiness depends on me!
