Stormy night

So, about 2pm yesterday Emerson started being very fussy. If I tried to put her down, she would scream. I thought she was overtired so I tried to put her down for a nap a little earlier than normal. She fell right asleep in my arms. When I went to put her into the swing, she woke up screaming. She proceeded to scream (painful shrills) for 30 minutes. This is completely abnormal for Emy. Of course my mind was racing- could she be teething, what if her cold is now an ear infection, etc. She finally passed out and slept for about an hour. She seemed pretty normal when she woke up from naptime. Hopefully she will do okay today.

Last night we had MAJOR storms move through our area. I woke up at about 3:15am to the horrific sounds of extreme wind, rain and thunder. I was positive that there had to be a tornado somewhere nearby. I was also sure that at some point Emerson would wake up screaming because the storm woke her up. Praise the Lord that Emy did not wake up and also that the huge branch in our backyard fell in the yard and not our already crippled roof.
