I have read a few other “a day in the life” posts, and I think they are so cute! Instead of doing a typical day of my life (boring), I thought I would do one from Charlotte’s perspective.
6:35am- Angelcare monitor goes off so I pick up the video monitor and look to see that she is on the edge of the crib. I know if I don’t reposition her, the Angelcare will keep going off and wake her up. So, I go in a put her in the middle of the crib. She wakes up and gives me a big smile. I can hear her talking/babbling when I get back into bed.
6:45am- Whew, she is back asleep!
7:15am- Alarm goes off. I go and put her bottle in the warmer and come back upstairs to put in a load of laundry.
7:28am- Laundry takes a little longer than I thought and I am running a little behind. Time to go in and wake up my little girl…something I look forward to every single morning! She gives me a smile and talks a little bit.
7:35am- After changing her, it is finally time for breakfast, yum!
7:45am- No time for cuddling after the bottle….Charlotte has way too many things to do and people to see. I set her down on her mat and show her all the new pictures in her sassy photo album.
7:50am- Change her out of her sleeping sack and put her in an outfit for the day. Ohio State tunic is the choice for today.
8:30am- Time for her snack! This morning I choose Pears & Pineapples. She gobbles it all down.
8:40am- Playing and jumping in her jumparoo.
9:05am- She lets me know it is time for bed, even though it is a bit earlier than normal.
10:55am- Time to wake up the sleeping beauty! After I put the bottle in the warmer, I go get Charlie and change her diaper.
11:00am- Lunch time!
11:15am- I’m taking Charlie to the grocery store today. I need to let Brutus outside, grab her new cart cover and a jacket, load up a few of her toys, and get her all geared up in her car seat.
11:30am- After putting Brutus up, we head towards the grocery store.
12:15pm- Text a picture to her dad showing how big of girl she is sitting up in the cart. We got so many compliments on her Ohio State attire. As we are dashing out, it starts raining. I internally start panicking when a Kroger employee, who was out getting carts, offered me their store umbrella. Thank goodness!
12:20pm- Load Charlie and the groceries and we are off to back home
12:30pm- After pulling in the garage and getting Charlie inside, I let Brutus out of his crate and give him a treat. I set Charlie in her high chair for her snack. This time it’s mixed vegetables.
12:45pm- She is discovering the kitchen (including the huge bag of birdseed) while I unload and put away groceries.
1:15pm- I take Charlie upstairs to keep me company while I fold laundry and put a new load in the washer.
1:30pm- Time for a nap (and momma to eat)!
2:55pm- Wake Charlie up and change her diaper before her bottle
3:00pm- Afternoon meal time
3:15pm- Chasing Charlie around…everywhere!
4:00pm- Dinner time snack…it’s pears & pineapple again. She’s not really into eating and rather more into playing with the food
4:15pm- I need to start getting our dinner ready, so I turn her high-chair around while I prep in the kitche
4:30pm- Time to take Charlie in a different room to play…seems like she is getting bored of this room! I capture her first “real” crawl on video and send to Derek, yay!
5:30pm- Time to go down for a quick cat-nap
6:15pm- Wake Charlie up. It’s time for our usual music jam session/practicing sitting up (all the while making funny faces)
6:40pm- Bath time and Daddy is home to help! I sing Charlie the “bath time” song and she gets excited!
7:00pm- Last bottle in her mouth
7:15pm- Goodnight sweet girl
