A Day in the Life

Below is A Day in the Life guest post I did for Chasing Fireflies last January, our routine is still pretty much the same except, we no longer use bottles but sippy cups and Jack has been kind enough to start waking up between 9:30 - 10:30am, thanks buddy! I promise I will post an updated version of our typical day soon.

Our days start at around 8:00am when I hear Jack through the video monitor. I get up and head to the kitchen to get his morning bottle ready.  I see this sweet face every morning. Jack is a super happy baby, he's never grumpy in the morning - like myself!

After changing his diaper, we head back to my room and cuddle while he drinks his bottle.

At around 9:00, Jack has breakfast. On this day, he had pancakes and a banana. After breakfast we head back to Jack's room for some playtime.

Around 10:30 Jack goes down for a nap. This gives me about 2-3 hours to get things done around the house. This morning, I got some blogs posts done, checked Facebook, organized my closet and folded 3 loads of laundry!

Jack gets up from his nap at around 2pm. He has a late lunch - homemade mac-n-cheese, chicken nuggets and his favorite - YoBaby banana yogurt.

At 3pm we make a quick trip to Target. I needed to get pacifier wipes, snacks and supplies for a DIY project I'm working on. We usually try to get out of the house at least once a day. Sometimes it's to the park, the grocery store, the mall or to lunch with friends.

At 4:30 Jack goes down for his afternoon nap and it gives me some time to hang out with my sweet Nico and watch Dr. Phil.

Jack wakes up at around 5:30 - just in time for dinner. He had a peanut butter sandwich, some cheddar cheese and apples for dessert.

We head back to his room for some more playtime. At 6:30 Daddy gets home and I get to relax before Jack's bedtime routine starts.

By 7:00pm Jack has had his bath and is ready for his night bottle. It's time for my little angel to go to sleep. At 7:30pm he is down for the night.

Around 8pm Brad and I have dinner while watching TV.  By 10pm I'm in bed winding down and reading some magazines.

And there you have it, our typical day!

  4. Wow- he sleeps that much?! Luck gal! Wyatt thinks it's cool to skip his afternoon naps lately- and he has trouble going to sleep at night too! He just fights it off! We're going to start a new routine this week- hopefully it works!
