11 months

Eve is 11 months old for about 90 minutes, so I thought I'd slip this post in! Yep, she is wearing her onesie dress!

I don't think I wrote a "10 months". Such a shame, but it's absence sort of reflects what 10-11 months was all about: sleep and not much else. We hit a point early August where Eve was waking multiple times a night for long periods more nights than not. It finally dawned on me that this wasn't a "phase", but something we actually had to address, not just "ride it out".

So after a phone call to Tresillian giving the the confidence to do what I knew I had to... and after 2 weeks of hard work, we now have a baby who mostly sleeps all night and goes to sleep without her dummy, wrap or rocking to sleep. Phew! I know that she is probably still not getting quite enough sleep with the activities of the other kids interrupting nap times, but that's life I guess. She is so much happier, and I am enjoying life a lot more too!

These pics of her at 11 months aren't the best, but she was not in the mood to stay still!!

She turns one tomorrow! WOW.

Oh MY! That year has passed so quickly. No... surely she cannot be one tomorrow!

It's so hard getting nice photos of them these days! They're way too active. You'd never get one of her lying on her quilt, there's just Too Much To Do! I might do Amy's 11 month post this arvo, I've already taken the photos.

sadly it all goes way to quickly doesnt it...... i hear ya on the sleep probs -- my moment of reckoning was during our trip to NZ a month ago where after multiple night wakenings and feedings for days on end I decided enough was enough! It took a couple of weeks but I stopped all night feeds and awakenings and now he's totally weaned!! Did you have a birthday party??

wow..she is a cutie pie. and one of the most charming smiles i've ever seen!
i'm missing this stage very much as my kids are no longer small enough for me to even carry.
