Mark It Down!!!

Ok I haven't mentioned this here yet because I didn't want to jinx it. I'm not normally superstitious but on this one I am! I wanted at least one week on the books!

Evie has slept through the night for a whole week now!

This has also coincided with three developmental milestones! She is learning to sit on her own (still working on this one but she is pretty good at it). She is learning to roll from her back to her tummy; she has only flipped from tummy to back once and this is strange because usually babies learn and master tummy to back first (the movement from back to tummy takes a lot more coordination and strength), but of course, not my daughter! She also just went through her 12 week growth spurt! Usually all of these things disrupt a baby's sleep cycle, but again, not Evie.

Now when I say she has slept through the night, I don't mean five and half hours; I don't mean eight hours. I am talking about we put her to bed between 8:30 and 9:00 pm and she sleeps until 7:30 or 8:00 am. 11 hours! Praise the Lord! We thought this day would never come!
