Maeve MV: ::she's grown more quiet than usual over this past week. She's trying her best with the baby, but there are times when she's at a complete lost as what to do. It's been a little over an hour since she finally got Olivia to take a nap and is now sitting in a chair downstairs staring out the window::
Julie OL: ::her blue eyes suddenly open, and she starts crying and wailing, almost loud enough to raise the dead, it seems::
Maeve MV: ::the noise can be heard downstairs but she doesn't seem to pick up on it. She continues to stare out the window, not even flinching::
IS: ::moves into the living room, heading towards the stairs towards the baby:: Maeve, you okay?
Maeve MV: ::she doesn't move::
Quantum Catz IS: ::moves towards Maevee, placing his hand on her shoulder:: Maeve?
Julie : ::the baby continues to wail, even louder, if that's possible::
Maeve MV: ::she jumps, and immediately looks up at him, blinking:: What? ::a second later the cries register and she looks over her shoulder at the stairs, looking confused::
Quantum Catz IS: It's alright, I'll go check on her. You try and get some rest
Maeve MV: ::she smiles weakly and relaxes back against the chair.:: Thanks, I'm not sure I'd have made it back up the stairs anyway. ::she rubs at her eyes, wishing she'd have more energy::
IS: ::leans down and kisses the top of her head:: Be back in a bit ::heads up the stairs to Olivia::
Julie : ::the baby is still sobbing when Isaac gets up to her::
Quantum Catz IS: :picks olivia up:: Sssh, you're not hungry, are you? Cos Mommy's tired just now
OL: ::continues to sob, struggling slightly against her father::
Quantum Catz IS: Sshh, come on, give mommy a break
Julie OL: ::keeps crying::
Quantum Catz IS: ::kisses her forehead:: Okay, we'll go downstairs
OL: ::is still sobbing::
Quantum Catz IS: ::takes Olivia downstairs, hugging her and trying to quieten her::
Maggie MV: ::she looks up when Isaac comes down; worriedly:: Is she hungry again already?
Quantum Catz IS: ::Sorry, she doesn't seem to want me anyway
Maggie MV: ::she reaches for the baby::
: ::the baby's wails pause as she listens to her mother, and cease as soon as she's in Maeve's arms::
Quantum Catz IS: ::Smiles:: Guess she just wanted her mommy
Maggie MV: ::smiles a bit as she rocks her:: Or she's just really demanding.
MairtheDefender OL: ::closes her eyes, smiling::
Maggie MV: ::she gets up, and tries walking around the room, seeing if that will put the wee thing back into a nice, deep, sleep::
MairtheDefender OL: ::seems to be asleep after just a minute::
Maggie MV: Well now, that wasn't so hard. All that fussing must take a lot out of her. ::she heads towards the stairs, looking a lot more lively than she did in the chair for she has no problem climbing the steps.::
Quantum Catz IS: ::chuckles:: Well she just kept crying when i was holding her
Maggie MV: ::smiles:: She's just starting early, showing us whose boss. ::she gently eases Olivia back into her cradle but keeps a hand on her for a bit, gently rubbing her back::
OL: ::makes a small contented noise as Maeve touches her::
Maggie MV: ::she smiles, and shakes her head. She doesn't back off until she's sure Olivia is sound asleep::
OL: ::does move a little as Maeve heads to the doorway::
Maggie MV: ::she stops, holding her breath, and hoping that the baby will settle down::
Julie OL: ::stays quiet, letting out a tiny sigh::
Maggie MV: ::she looks at Isaac and puts her finger to her lips then quickly slips out of the room::
Quantum Catz IS: ::moves quietly with her::
Maggie MV: ::she slows down towards the bottom of the stairs, and practically drags her feet back to the chair which she quickly plops down in, sighing::
Quantum Catz IS: You should try to get some sleep while she's sleeping
Maggie MV: ::all of her energy seems to seep out of her as she curls up in the chair; quietly:: Yeah...
Quantum Catz IS: ::smiles slightly:: D'you not want to go up to bed?
Maggie MV: ::makes a sound like she doesn't care one way or another::
: ::they suddenly hear Olivia crying again, softly::
Maggie MV: ::she grunts, but doesn't seem to be inclined to move::
Quantum Catz IS: ::heads back up the stairs without trying to wake maeve::
Maggie MV: ::she opens her eyes, and moves a bit to look out the window where her gaze fixes on a point somewhere outside again::
Julie OL: ::fusses when Isaac draws near::
JH: ::comes in downstairs, smelling a tiny bit; he checks in on Maeve, smiling widely:: I rescued a cat today!
((Er, he was supposed to smell slightly of smoke ))
Maggie MV: ::she blinks but otherwise doesn't even register that he's there::
Quantum Catz IS: ::softly:: You keep doing this and mommy's going to be too tired to do anything. Why don't you just put up with me for a bit? :picks her up and rocks her::
Julie JH: ::his smile fades; softly:: Maeve?
OL: ::isn't crying outright, but can't stop fussing, teary-eyed::
Maggie MV: ::she looks up:: Huh?
Julie JH: ::quietly:: You haven't learned to sleep with your eyes open, have you?
Maggie MV: ::shrugs, and looks back to the window::
Quantum Catz IS: ::keeps rocking Olivia, hoping to settle her without having to wake maeve::
OL: ::is still fussy, though not crying outright::
JH: ::cringes, staying silent for a while; this isn't the first time Maeve's acted like this; he doesn't even bother telling her that they're all happy to help with the baby, whatever Maeve needs; he finally sighs; quietly:: I'll be in the kitchen if you need me, Maeve.
Maggie MV: ::she doesn't answer, just continues to stare out the window::
Julie JH: ::sighs again, and slips towards the stairs, going to see Isaac::
Quantum Catz IS: ::is still trying to quieten the baby, now humming her a song::
Julie JH: ::softly clears his throat and whispers:: I think there's something wrong with Maeve.
OL: ::had just been starting to quiet, but Josh's voice wakes her, and she whimpers again::
Quantum Catz IS: ::murmurs:: It's okay, honey ::looks up at Josh; softly:: I'm hoping it's just because she's tired
Julie JH: ::quietly:: But what if it's not? ::frowns:: And is Olivia all right?
Quantum Catz IS: ::sighs:: She won't settle properly unless she's with Maeve
Julie JH: Have you ever heard of anything like that before? Maybe...it couldn't be Olivia's powers, could it?
Quantum Catz IS: ::shrugs:: Maybe she just knows that Maeve isn't feeling herself
Julie JH: ::nods, still looking troubled, but he doesn't say anything::
OL: ::finally quiets down again, though she's moving restlessly::
Quantum Catz IS: ::is feeling a bit worried as well, but tries to hide it as he sets Olivia back down in the cot, hoping she'll rest for a while now::
