Bright eyed and bushy tailed.
Last night, I woke at 4 am to hear the aquarium on Cailin's crib through the monitor. The bubble feature of it is LOUD. I wonder if they have re-formatted it so that it will be a touch quieter... if so, i might need to invest in one. Anyway, it ran for the 10 minutes and as soon as it stopped, I could hear her turn it back on again... and again, and again... I went down to peek on her. She was curled in a ball on her pillow just under the aquarium sucking her thumb. She wasn't asleep though. I figured either she was snotty, and the coughing kept her up, or her teeth were sore and keeping her up. I got out the Robitussin and Motrin and went to join her. She sees me, leaps off the bed and says "I naped mom. I nap". This is normally her way to say i took my nap and am done now. I told her that we weren't taking naps, it was night night time. She took her medicines and lay back down. Lately she wants her bed EMPTY except her, a pillow and a blanket. She throws everything else on the floor. She curled up again and i put my head down next to her. It was uncomfortable, so after 2-3 minutes, i stretched out on the floor and tried to rest some. every so often she would peek her head over the edge of the bed to make sure i was still there. She would ask if i was sleeping. I finally realized she wasn't going back to sleep with me there so i went back to my room. She cried for a minute or two, but then was quiet. I am not sure how long it took her to fall back asleep, but the aquarium was quiet for the rest of the night. It is 9:30 now and she is just waking up.
