Evie is finally sleeping through the night!!!  She goes down around 8pm and wakes up around 7:30 am.  Occasionally she'll still need a bottle or diaper change during the night.  Switching to a night time disposable diaper really helped. 

She's in a pretty easy routine for wake up, meals, naps and bed time.  She knows the drill now.

I was thinking the end of the two-a-day naps were around the corner, but some days she still takes two 2 hour naps.
What they say...

"Oh Elizabeth, she looks just like you!"
"Is she always this good?"

We are...
 Ecstatic about the new house
Still mourning the selling of the Jeep, but having two cars Evie can ride in is a serious blessing!
In denial that we almost have a one year old!!
...not going to keep up with monthly updates after one year, these are exhausting (but I am so glad to have them!)

**I'm so sorry for the disappointing lack of photos.  I have been so busy with work I just haven't been behind the camera!

  1. I wish I still lived in Atlanta, so Evie and Mena could be friends. Because I know they would be.
