For the last few days Capri has not been herself…she’s been cranky, whiny and clingy. For some reason it took me awhile to realize “Of COURSE! She’s teething!” Sure enough, a few Hyland’s Homeopathic Teething Tablets and Capri was feeling much better and acting her old self again. Well…around 2 in the morning the tablets must have wore off…Capri was screaming again. It’s always hard at night to gauge just how long your child is crying in the middle of the night. We always try to make a point to look at the clock when we first wake up from it…that way we’re not running upstairs when it’s been just 2 minutes instead of the 20 or 30 it feels like. So anyway, I was trying to decide in my sleepy brain whether or not to head up to comfort her when all of a sudden…she stopped crying! Woo Hoo! Time to sleep again. Until we hear a whimper at our doorway! Who didn’t shut the gate?! (papa) Capri made it by herself, down the stairs and into our bedroom in the middle of the night…a first for us…Cedi won’t leave her bed until we go to get her so we haven’t had to deal with this yet. At least she didn’t fall and hurt herself. We’ll definitely have to remember to put the gate up from now on.
She knew where she wanted to go! Glad she avoided the stairs and hope those teeth come through real soon!
