At about 3:30 this morning I woke up hearing Rachel crying. So I got up to check on her. She was standing at the baby gate which blocks her doorway. I held her for a minute or two, gave her a kiss, and put her back in bed. Of course the noise woke Gabi up a little, but I decided to leave her alone so that she could put herself back to sleep. Gabi was crying, but only just a little. I didn’t go straight back to bed because I wanted to make sure Gabi got back to sleep, and sure enough, five or ten minutes later she was quiet, so I went back to bed myself. Five or ten minutes later Gabi started crying again. (Grrr!) She wasn’t crying much, so I decided to give her a chance to fall back asleep on her own. 14 minutes later, all was quiet again in the girls’ room. Gabi wakes up earlier than Rachel does, so I got her up, changed her diaper and fed her. Jeff went in to wake up Rachel so he could say goodbye to her before he went to work, and noticed that she had thrown up some time over night. Poor thing. How did I not notice? Anyway, we got her up, put her in the bath tub, put her sheets in the wash, and then called the pediatrician for any medical advice they might choose to give me.
Now Rachel is lying in our bed drinking water and watching Up. The sheets are in the dryer, and Gabi is playing in the clean clothes that I now need to fold.
Just another day in the life . . .
