Crying Baby Freeze Tag

on September 28, 2012

Baby E is still trying to cut a new tooth. She is waking up occasionally in the night to voice her displeasure with her gums.

We’ve been playing nighttime freeze tag a lot lately.

E’s cries drift in over the monitor. I start to get up and check on her, but as soon as I put my glasses on she stops. I sit frozen for a few minutes to make sure she is really back asleep. As soon as I take my glasses off, she cries again. I freeze and she stops. I carefully slide back into bed and she cries but stops. I lay there in a state of tense hyper-awareness because I know she will cry as soon as I sink back into comfortable slumber.

I’m sure all the moms have lived this out many times.

After a few rounds I gave up, changed her diaper, and brought her to bed with me.

Andy working overnights has made me soft. I’m just lonely enough to break my own rule about always putting them back in their own beds.

Here is my little girly girl in her cousin’s sunglasses…

I’m glad she is so cute and chipper despite keeping mommy up part of the night.
