As I was on the computer reading blogs, checking my email, and whatever else Tori was playing with her toys, doing a great job at entertaining herself. I was listening to her play happily but then after a few minutes of surfing the web and during a call from Jake I realized there was no longer playing noise. There was silence. A bit of panic filled my chest, because unplanned silence usually isn't good. I started to look for Tori going from one of the six rooms in our small home to other quickly scanning for her. No Tori. The doors were not open, so quickly I looked in closets, behind curtains, or any else she typically likes to hide in. No Tori. I called her name. No response. I was really scared now. I went threw the house again looking. I checked my room, the bathroom, the kitchen, the laundry room, the living room. No Tori. Then I checked her room and right before I turned to leave to really panic, I saw her, partially under her blanket, sound asleep on a love seat. Fear and panic immediately left, and relief took its place, as I quickly and silently thanked Heavenly Father my Tori was never in danger. However I felt a bit sorry that I didn't realize she was so sleepy, but then Jake and I soon decided its time to let Tori try out a toddle bed. Goodness she is growing up fast.
