For a while I was doing pretty well at publishing one of these every 3 months. I missed one right around the time Little Miss was born/Squish turned 2…but I’m jumping back in and i’ll try to keep up!
In case missed any of my previous posts, I’ve been writing one every 3 months since Squish was born. You can find the links below:
Let me preface this post by saying that there is no normal right now. Every day is different. But this was Monday of this week. The photos are taken quickly on my phone and unedited..but that’s life 🙂
4:45 – Baby gets up. Lately, she’s been sleeping until at least 6 so this is pretty early. I go downstairs, grab my computer, start the coffee and settle in to feed her and get some work done. Hubby coaches a couple of our morning CrossFit classes a week so he leaves to coach at little after 5.
5:00 – 7:30 – I work on Healthy Aperture stuff and stuff for my blog while also trying to feed and entertain baby. Hubby comes home around 6:45 and hangs out with us for a few minutes before going back to bed for a little while.
7:30 -Squish wakes up. I change him and feed him breakfast while drinking my coffee.
8:00 – 9:00 – We play and I feed the baby again.
9:00 – Put everyone in the car and leave for the gym. I coach our 9:30 class two days a week. Squish watches his tablet and runs around the gym. Baby falls asleep around 9:30.
10:45 – Home from the gym. I make my morning oatmeal and Squish eats some with me.
11:00 – 12:30 – We play. Baby wakes up at 11 so I feed her, deal with her second blowout of the day, follow Squish around to his various playrooms.
12:30 – Lunch. Daddy comes home and we all hang out in the kitchen. Not pictured, baby screaming, squish falling off stool and screaming, etc.
1:00 – 3:00 Naptime for Squish. I try to get work done, write my Bean Bytes post and also feed and deal with baby who doesn’t sleep and alternates between happy and fussy.
3:00 – 4:00 – Squish wakes up, we have a snack, play, feed baby, do some chores, etc.
4:00 – Back to gym. Daddy coaches our 4:30 class and I workout. Usually baby falls asleep around this time but she’s been up since 11 and still not interested in sleeping.
6 :00- Home to make and eat dinner with Squish. Baby is still awake and screaming.
6:45 – 7:45 Squish watches Thomas while I feed the baby and then walk around holding a screaming baby and a phone blaring a hair dryer noise to try to keep her somewhat calm.
7:45 – Daddy comes home. Squish hangs out with him for a little while.
8:15 – Squish goes to bed, baby finally falls asleep for a few minutes and I take a shower.
8:45 -Sit down to write a freelance article and baby wakes up screaming.
8:45 – 9:45 – Deal with baby and try to answer a few emails on my phone.
9:45 – She’s finally hungry so I feed her while writing a freelance article.
10:45 – She’s done eating and finally asleep so I put her upstairs, feed the animals, eat a snack, get the coffee ready for the morning, etc.
11:15 – Bed.
