At first I thought I would write a clever little post about hearing Remington crying when he is actually sound asleep. When I looked into it a little more I found that 'phantom crying' is a common occurance for new mothers, especially those with postnatal depression. It also is an indicative of a woman's heightened sense of hearing after having children. It is creepy and comforting at the same time to know that I am so in tune to Remington's needs and noises. My friend Tiffany gave me an awesome monitor that has lights that flare up when baby is crying so if you are making lots of noise you can still use the monitor. my problem is that I always look towards it right when Remington quiets down, so I think I am hearing phantom crying when he actually IS crying. It is all very confusing. Even right now as I type, over the hum of the A/C, I swear I can hear him crying...I'll go check...Nope. Sound asleep.
