If I want it, I'll get it

The Bambina is one of those kids who loves her pacifier and she has effectively trained us to always keep one handy.

But what I found amazing was her recent ability to swoop down and get the pacifier in her mouth without requiring any hands or outside help.

I was a bit in awe when I first saw this - that little tyke had the motivation and focus to get what she wanted. She no longer needed us to be ready to plop one in her mouth when she felt the need for comfort. It was an example of another baby step toward independence - a problem she solved all on her own. I thought this was rather remarkable.
