  4301. 931
  4302. 00:51:12,319 --> 00:51:15,687
  4303. And she had Krissi
  4304. in her arm.
  4305.  
  4306. 932
  4307. 00:51:15,781 --> 00:51:17,693
  4308. And I said, "Nippy,
  4309. what are you doing?"
  4310.  
  4311. 933
  4312. 00:51:17,783 --> 00:51:21,072

  4316. 934
  4317. 00:51:21,161 --> 00:51:23,244
  4318. <i>So I said,
  4319. "Of course I'll bathe her,"</i>
  4320.  
  4321. 935
  4322. 00:51:23,330 --> 00:51:25,447
  4323. <i>so I took the baby from her.</i>

  4325. 936
  4326. 00:51:27,042 --> 00:51:29,159
  4327. I never gave her back.
  4328.  
  4329. 937
  4330. 00:51:32,006 --> 00:51:38,219
  4331. She slept in a crib for
  4332. about two or three months...
  4333.  
  4334. 938
  4335. 00:51:38,304 --> 00:51:43,140
  4336. and then one night
  4337. she was colicky and gassy,
  4338.  
  4339. 939
  4340. 00:51:43,225 --> 00:51:44,932
  4341. and I put her in the bed
  4342. with me.
  4343.  
  4344. 940
  4345. 00:51:45,019 --> 00:51:47,727
  4346. And she slept with me
  4347. in that bed,
  4348.  
  4349. 941
  4350. 00:51:47,813 --> 00:51:52,774
  4351. wherever we were...

  4353.  
  4354. 942
  4355. 00:52:01,660 --> 00:52:05,279
  4356. <i>- Point to the baby, Mommy.

  4359. 943
  4360. 00:52:05,372 --> 00:52:07,238

  4364. 944
  4365. 00:52:07,333 --> 00:52:10,326

  6069. 1315
  6070. 01:12:07,532 --> 01:12:11,867

  6074. 1316
  6075. 01:12:11,953 --> 01:12:13,364

  9025. 1958
  9026. 01:48:04,561 --> 01:48:07,099

  9029. 1959
  9030. 01:48:07,189 --> 01:48:09,647

  9034. 1960
  9035. 01:48:09,733 --> 01:48:11,395

  9321. 2021
  9322. 01:51:43,780 --> 01:51:46,363
