Evening Reclaimed

We have reached a major milestone! Lily now goes to bed early (7:30 verses 9:00)! She now takes two naps instead of three, and if we keep her up an extra little bit, then we can just put her to bed a bit before Zosia. So, this is huge for a couple of reasons:
  • we now actually have a real "evening," as opposed to putting Lily down at around 9:30, then going to bed around 10 or 11.
  • Lily is awake for longer periods of time, which means that we get to see more of her smiling face in the evening, but also that it should be easier to either go places with her in the evening, or leave her with a family member while we go out for a walk or dinner.
Last night was the first real try at this, and so far it has worked like a champ-- Lily is still asleep, meaning that she didn't get up any earlier than usual. Whew!

Now on to the next goal of actually going on dates with my husband. Slowly but surely, we're getting there!
