17 Moments from Elvie’s 17th Month

Is Elvie really another month older? Again? Already? Our lives have been so eventful that another month slipped away in a whir of things to do and places to go and people to see. We started Elvie’s seventeenth month in New York City, with her checked into the hospital for treatment of an infection, and we ended it with me recovering from minor abdominal surgery gone slightly more complicated than anticipated. But even so, it was a good month, and a memorable month, and another month of feeling so lucky to be Elvie’s family. Here are my favorite seventeen photos from Elvie’s seventeenth month.
