At 17 months, Cora's parents decided to say goodbye to her pacifier in a unique way.
"It was like ripping off a band-aid," her father recalled.
After tying the pacifier to a bunch of balloons, Cora gave it one last suck before allowing it to float away.
According to her father, Cora was mildly upset for the first couple of nights, but will soon move on: "I think she understands that she's not a baby anymore."
