Spooky Child

*For Eling because she reads my blog :)*

Elizabeth has this habit of waking up in the middle of the night and hopping into our bed.  We often find her lying between us in the morning naked because she's too hot to wear pajamas.  We actually don't know what time she usually comes to our bed because we're knocked out!

The other night I was up late reading a book on square foot gardening (yes, I know, random).  It was around midnight that I heard a strange noise upstairs.  I looked at the baby monitor... Auggie.. sleeping... Elizabeth... gone!  I waited a little to see if she would come downstairs, but nothing.  After about 5 minutes, I decided to go check on her.

As I was walking up our dark stairway I felt a little eerie like someone was watching me.  About 3 steps shy of the top, I felt really creeped out.  I reached to the side without continuing up the stairs and turned on the light to find Elizabeth sitting at the top of the stairs with her eyes closed and sucking on her fingers.  I screamed from the shock and scared her half to death.

She started bawling as I was cracking up because she scared me.  I asked her what was wrong and she said, "I did something bad."  I asked her what she did and she said, "I scared mommy." hahahah

Elizabeth's spooky face. :)


  1. that would scare me too! funny how she's not scared of the dark???

  2. It was so creepy! I think she got to the stairs and noticed the light was still on so she didn't want to come downstairs and get in trouble. So she just decided to wait at the top until the light went off. hahah
