A Day in the Life (#4)

Every 6 months or so I like to write down what we do all day. These posts are probably boring to everyone but I love looking back and seeing what we did on a normal day. This day was a little abnormal since I went to the caucus and Leland did bedtime by himself,  but that does happen once a week or so. Usually when I need a little break ;)

I did a day in the life post when Esther was the same age Adele is now. You can read it here. It's so crazy how different life is with two kids. With Adele I don't time her feedings like I did with Esther, and I barely even wake up to feed her at night. So I left those things out. I also would go somewhere almost everyday when Esther was a baby. Now it's usually not worth the hassle. Also workouts are a long ways from happening for me lol. Anyways, here is our day from Tuesday March 22nd 2016.

Esther is 2 years old and Adele is 7 weeks old.

5 something am: Esther comes to our room. Leland gives her milk and gets her back to sleep. I go back to sleep.

6:00am: Adele wakes up. I feed her but she isn't going back. I burp her, change her and swaddle her.

7:30am: Adele finally falls back to sleep. Sometime later Leland comes in for prayers before he leaves to work. I eventually fall back to sleep.

8:40am: Esther comes into our room and is awake for good. I put on Little Einsteins for her while I start writing this and eat breakfast.

9:15am: The show is over. Give Esther her breakfast. Banana oatmeal and cheese.

9:30am: Adele is starting to wake up so we finish breakfast and get Esther dressed for the day.

9:40: Adele is awake, I change her diaper and clothes and nurse her while Esther plays with her toys and the saran wrap.

Esther comes over asking for "HALP" many times. 

10:00am: Adele is full and I decide to pump some for the freezer stash. I get 4oz.

My view while pumping:

10:15am: I make the bed and put Adele on it for tummy time while I get dressed. Esther plays with Loki.

10:16am: Discover Adele has a huge blowout. Change her diaper and clothes, swaddle her and put her in the swing for nap. She is screaming so I hurry and finish getting dressed then rock her. Esther is playing in the bathroom...

10:45am: Adele is asleep, put her in the car seat and get Esther ready to leave for story time at the library.

11:00-12:00 Storytime

Getting both girls out to car and buckled in = not an easy task. Also it was randomly snowing this day. 

12:05pm: Get home, feed Adele. Leland gets home a few minutes later for lunch. He gets Esther lunch.

12:25pm: Adele is finished nursing so I swaddle her and put her in the swing to nap. I join Leland and Esther eating lunch.

12:50pm: Leland heads back to work. I rock and sing to Esther to get her down for nap.

1:11pm: Both babies are asleep. I check my phone, read my scriptures and then lay on the couch to nap too.

2:20pm: Esther is awake so I wake up too. We read books together. Then I look up info about the caucus tonight.

2:55pm: I start laundry and cleaning while Esther plays with her toys. Adele is still asleep.

Esther plays with her elephants and wants me to take a picture of them.

3:15pm: Esther colors while I put potatoes in the oven for dinner.

3:25pm Adele wakes up. I change her, then get Esther a snack and put on Little Bear while I feed Adele.

4:00pm: Little bear is over. I put Adele on the bed for tummy time. Esther and I sing songs to keep her happy.

4:15pm: I decide to make cookies with E. I put Adele in the ergo. Adele goes right to sleep.

5:05pm: Leland comes home and takes Esther outside to play while I finish the cookies.

Waiting for Dada:

5:40pm: I start to nurse A. Leland and E come back in. Esther is very wet so he puts her in the bath.

6:00pm: We eat dinner.

6:30pm: I feed Adele the other side while Leland puts the food away.

6:45pm: I take Adele and go to the caucus. Leland couldn't register to vote so he stays home with Esther.

7:30pm: I get home just in time to say prayers with Esther, then I rock and sing to her. I lay her in her bed and she stays without crying :)

8:00pm: I take a bath and bring Adele in with me. I wash her and hand her off to Leland to get her ready for bed.

8:40pm: I get out of the bath and get ready for bed. Adele is asleep. We read and relax a little then go to bed ourselves around 10pm.

*Sorry if this post is full of typos. I wrote it mostly from my phone.

Also I just found my last day in the life post here. Esther was so tiny and such a baby!
