Like that alliteration? haha. Lately, Spencer has developed some "different" bedtime behaviors. At first I thought they were cute, but now, not so much.
The first one is that she has started talking in her sleep. It's usually in the first 10-20 minutes and she says all sorts of things like "noonie" (her pacifier) "Gus" and "Mama." Sometimes it's just one word and others its a whole gibberish conversation. Of course this sounds super cute when I write it out, and it is, but she's starting to wake herself up now. She'll yell so loudly that she startles herself awake and then we have to start the whole bedtime process over again.
Spencer has also decided that while she likes to sleep with a noonie in her mouth, she also needs two or three in her hands, almost like a stuffed animal. She'll keep saying it over and over again, until she gets them in her hands. Then she switches them in and out of her mouth, in her semi-conscious state until she finally goes to sleep. Now this too sounds cute when I write it out, but I'm hard pressed to come up with four or five noonies at a time. I consider it a good day if I know where one is! They're like socks in the laundry.
As I'm writing this Spencer is snoring in the background, just to give you a little perspective. I'm also watching CSI:NY and it is SAD. Usually these procedural shows don't get to me, but anything about the Holocaust always does me in.
In other news, Spencer isn't feeling so well today. She's hoarse and has a runny nose, with a slight fever. Right now Tylenol is doing the trick, so that's good. This meant we couldn't go and see Sara and Lila, because I didn't want to risk getting Lila sick. Hopefully we'll be able to go on Friday and I'll get some adult time in for me!
I can't believe it's already the end of April! Where has the month gone?
