Other:

Maggie continues to be a rockstar night time sleeper.  Day time naps require a little more coaxing. As soon as Evie starts school I am going to get her on a regular nap schedule.

Her eye continues to have a blocked tear duct.  The pediatrician wants us to see a specialist at 6 months if it's not cleared up.  This has changed. Originally it was 12 months. I'll see what she says at the 6 month check up.

I haven't decided when we're going to start solids.  4 months was the green light with Evie, but now the research is suggesting 6 months.  I guess we'll take it week by week.  She seems content with just nursing.

Maggie is still sleeping in our room.  She's such a great sleeper so it's easier for me to have her in our room.  Really, I'm just putting off buying another camera for the video monitor. 

No one can get Maggie to belly laugh quite the way Evie does.  Sisters, y'all.  They're the best!
