WANTED: Babysitting Job

If you ever need someone to babysit, or you know of someone who needs a babysitter, just call me!! I had the opportunity to babysit Noah for Mommy yesterday, and I think that I did a pretty darn good job! Noah was taking a nap and Mommy had to walk outside for a few minutes (note: she did take the baby monitor with her!!) I was inside the house with Noah. Mommy was outside only for a few minutes when Noah woke up. Mommy instantly heard him and came inside. When she got inside, I had opened the door to the nursery and started talking to my brother to tell him that Mommy was coming. (I was actually yelling for Mommy to hurry up because Brother was crying and I was upset!)

Mommy said that I did a really good job watching Noah. It has now gone to my head and I think that I can babysit anyone!!

Daddy has also decided that I know when Brother wakes up from his nap. Several times this past week I alerted Daddy that Noah was up. Since Mommy, Daddy and Papaw are now working from my house, Brother has the privilege to nap in his own bed. Daddy shut the door to the nursery and also to our bedroom (cause Noah's nursery is in our bedroom) so not to disturb him. On 2 different days, I went to the bedroom door and begged to be let in. After minutes of begging, Daddy finally let me in. Both times, Brother was awake and ready to play. So, whoever said a dog does not have intuition or instincts is TOTALLY wrong!!

I try to be such a good big sister. Noah is having a really rough time sleeping right now. So much so, he was awake from 12:45 am until 2:30 am this morning. Mommy finally took Brother downstairs so that he would not disrupt me and Daddy and our precious sleeping! I could not sleep knowing that Mommy was downstairs. I hopped out of my comfy blanket and headed downstairs to help Mommy out. I curled up on the couch beside her. Before we knew it (around 2:30 am) me, Mommy and Brother were all curled up asleep on the couch together. I think we slept that way until 4:30 am. Mommy woke up and woke me up and upstairs to bed we headed. Brother woke up again less than a hour later but Mommy easily got him back to sleep. The 3 of us slept until 9 am and we all missed church this morning.

Mommy thinks that Noah's sleeping issue is based on teething. He will be 9 months old on Tuesday so Mommy will be talking to the doctor about ways to fix this issue. Brother does not have a single tooth yet, so as Mommy says, no Thanksgiving turkey for him!! HAHA!

And that's just the dog's (tiring) life!

Maybe we'll send Hayes over there for you to babysit... until he gets his own jars of Apples and Ham... then we'll keep him!

Just send him... I'll watch him! I have these things all figured out! They do stink sometimes though. Mommy says that Noah has a green cloud that follows his rear end. That is one end that I don't sniff! But, when they get older, they will share their apples and ham, so they are worth the trouble!
