Do you hear that?

Lately, I'm not sure if I'm losing it, or if someone is playing tricks on me. Quite often, I swear I hear Alli crying. Now, for those of you that have never been to our house, the whole downstairs is basically just one big open area with the kitchen, dining and living room. The stairs leading upstairs are right by the front door, and Alli's room is the first room on the right. Basically, because of all the open space, there isn't much of a sound barrier, and you can hear pretty much everything. Baby monitor = complete waste of money for us. Anyway, when we were in our stages around four months of letting Alli "cry it out" and fall asleep, it was miserable for us. Just short of going outside, there was no where you could escape hearing her. The echoes of her crying herself to sleep could be heard throughout the house. And I swear, they are lingering on in my head... all these months later! I'll be downstairs on one of my days off after I've put her down for a nap, and I swear I hear her crying. So I run upstairs, into her room... and there she is, snoozing away. What?! Where did that come from?

Apparently, I'm not the only one losing it either. Last week, Dad-E was finishing up his breakfast right after I had left the house for work. He heard Alli start to cry upstairs, and he yelled up to her "I'm coming Ru!", finished his last few bites of oatmeal, chugged his OJ and ran up to get her. He got into her room, looked over the crib, and there was snoozer-Ru, still in dreamland. What?! Where did he hear that crying come from?

Is it so ingrained in our heads that we just hear it without it happening... or could we possibly have a ghost??

Nope, it's not me! I'm still sleeping! :o)
