We thought it was a one time thing though. Well, it kind of was for the next few days. Then again, last night, she warmed up to her bedtime buddy. And this time we watched. She played with him for a while. 10 minutes later her eye lids started to droop and her head started to bow, all the while caressing Mousey's tail against her face. She started swaying in her sleep. Like she was drunk on breast milk. Soon Arissa was asleep, still sitting, chin against chest, Mousey in one hand, his tail in another (detachable tail...not sure why). It was the cutest thing. We softly nudged her and she lay there looking like she was having the most peaceful sleep. Who knows if Mousey will work wonders again. We don't mind either way. We actually love holding her and rocking her to sleep. Maybe we're even jealous, that sometimes, Mousey does a better job at it than us.
