The case of the missing soothers
I think the sickness in our house is finally on the upswing. The antibiotics seem to have CeCe's ear infection under control and Jorja isn't coughing at all anymore. Ginny still has a bit of a cough, but not too bad. Last night was the best night CeCe had in a long time. She woke up once before we went to bed and I gave her her soother, and then she slept all night. It was monumental really. If is wasn't for Ginny falling out of bed once and then me waking up with Jorja beside me once, it would have been a perfect night. Apparently Jorja had a bad dream and crawled in - I was oblivious to that until my arm was asleep and I woke to find a little head on it. Crazy. Anyway, back to CeCe. We always keep a spare soother on her dresser for when she wakes up in the night. It's just easier to grab that and plug her rather than fishing around in the dark trying to find the one she lost. So last night I had given her the spare before we went to bed and not found the other one. Fast forward to this morning. I turned my alarm off and went back to sleep. I woke up to Jorja standing beside me asking if I was going to work. Well, I shot up and and got dressed, put Jorja back to bed and brushed my teeth. That's when CeCe started to wail. Loudly. I went in there and couldn't find any soothers anywhere. She was screaming. I started looking under the crib and still couldn't find any. Julie was in there by now and rocking CeCe, but without the soother, that was still a pretty noisy affair. I turned on her night light and still couldn't find them. I moved the crib away from the wall because that is where they often fall. Still nothing. Finally I ran downstairs and got the one we keep clipped to her snowsuit. Julie got her calmed down and I was out the door. I still made it on time (pretty much) and CeCe went back to sleep. It was an interesting way to start the day to say the least. Later.
