Well, Evie is still on Eastern time which has made for a very interesting day! She slept until about 6:30 but then was tired at 8:45 so I put her down for a nap thinking that would help her make it a bit longer. I woke her after a bit to go to a pool party with Declan and Stephen. She was so excited to go to the pool and kept saying pool to me since it's one of her new words.

   We had a fun time at the pool. Evie was mesmerized by the big kids and loved hanging out on the float. Evie was the only girl and she is quite adept at holding her own with the boys. She kept trying to blow bubbles but had to take break for a ladybug cookie. It was a beautiful day with lots of sun and a little tiny breeze. I love taking Evie to the pool. Today was about as relaxing as it gets watching her float around.

    We came home and Evie seemed ready for a nap. Almost three hours later, she still had not napped, guess she thought she'd already taken care of her nap for the day. She laughed, sang, banged on the wall, called for her Mama, screamed a little and ran all over her crib. Multiple trips were made into her room to settle her for some sleep time. Let's just say that we were both relieved when I took her out and played on the floor next to her crib. She was so thrilled and rewarded me with lots of kisses.

    I kept her with me and we did a few things around the house. She was in a fantastic mood, laughing and playing with her baby doll. We went to pick up the alterations and the lady told me that Evie must keep me on my toes. That's the understatement of the year!

    Dinner was a disaster that resulted in vanilla yogurt splattered all over the door in the kitchen. I fed her bites of dinner while she sat on my lap then we gave her a few Cheez-Its which will hopefully tide her over until the morning. By 5:30, I had to work VERY hard to keep Evie content and by 6:30, she was passed out in her bed. Carl said she practically fell asleep during story time. We have not been on Eastern time for 9 days in a long time and it's going to take some time to get her back on track. Photo's were not happening here today. I will try again tomorrow!


  1. I sometimes think we live in the same world! No nap for us yesterday and dinner time was just as disasterous including 2 meltdowns because she did not want to sit in her highchair. I won't even get into bathtime... Anyway - here's to a better today!!

  2. Oh, no...being off schedule is the worst for both of you! Hopefully she gets back in her time zone soon. :)
