I absolutely LOVE being baby J’s mommy. So far I have been a stay at home mom for one week. This is the start of the second week. This new journey is a big step of faith for Chase and I. I feel incredibly blessed. My typical day is like this so far if I am not running errands:
6:30am Wake up, throw some workout clothes on and go for a 10 minute walk with Suzy.
6:40am Read the bible for about 10 minutes
6:50am Make coffee, clean anything left in the kitchen that may have been soaking or empty dishwasher
7am Baby J wakes up around 7 but on the days he sleeps in I will watch some news or read a magazine or sometimes just crawl back into bed with Chase for a few minutes.
When baby J wakes up he always wakes up talking to himself and playing and I let him keep playing in his crib for about 10 minutes and then it is “Good Morning!” time!! Diaper change and clothes on which can take about 20-30 minutes because we have LOTS of fun in the mornings. We eat breakfast together and then it is playtime!
8-9:30am Baby J usually plays while I wash my face and change my clothes and then once I am “ready” for the day we play some more! We try to go for a walk if the weather is nice.
9:30am Starts the process of naptime. It usually takes him 20-30 minutes to have a bottle and wind down for his nap, less time if I am lucky!
11am Wake up from nap and play a little until lunch
11:30am Lunchtime! We also eat lunch together.
12am This is the perfect time for us to run errands. If we don’t leave the house then we just play some more!
2:45pm Awake and time to play again! We try to play outside in the late afternoon and go for long walks.
4:30pm Start making supper. Baby J plays in his exersaucer.
5:30pm Chase comes home and it’s suppertime!
6:30pm Bathtime! Chase usually gives baby J a bath.
Somewhere between 1-5am baby J wakes up to eat a quick bottle. And then the process starts all over again at 6:30am!
