Ellowyn is 11 months old! It's strange how it feels like she has always been here. I can't seem to remember life without her.
A few weeks back, she went through a month-long phase of getting sick. She caught one thing right after another for four weeks solid. It was miserable. But since then, she's been much better. She's now sleeping 12 hours straight through at night, no night wakings, and also taking one nap a day for an hour and a half. This has taken some work and time to achieve, but it puts her on the same sleep schedule as her sister, which is SOOOO nice. She's eating like a trucker; I have to plan extra food for her at every meal (as opposed to Mira at this age, who could just share a little off of our plates). And she's still nursing 4-5 times a day. But despite all that food, she remains a skinny little thing. She must have the metabolism of a hummingbird.
