Since as early as I can remember, I have been a sleepwalker. Walking around in my sleep throughout the house doing god knows what. Believing that the house was caving in, or that bugs were in my bed. A pretty nightly occurrence for many years now.
With baby Rylan now here, the Crib Tent that we purchased to keep the cats out of the crib also is a way to help control me sleepwalking and grabbing the baby. For the past 2 weeks since Rylan was born, pretty much nightly, I wake up in a panic trying to find Rylan amongst the sheets or clothing on the ground. As real as can be, I believe that I can literally hear Rylan's voice deep within the sheets. In pure panic mode, I dig frantically looking for him only to turn to the crib and see him there, sleeping peacefully. *sigh of relief*
I have never been around someone who sleepwalks so I am not certain exactly what my parents and my wife have seen but while I do not want Rylan to go through the dreams that I do, I am curious to see sleepwalking from another view. I am curious to see what Rylan may do if he was to sleep walk (obviously when he can walk). Will he have the same thoughts of a spider infested wall, or maybe that his parents are in severe danger? Only time will tell whether or not he gained that trait from me.
