I love reading these posts of other moms so I’m going to give it a try too. Plus Aaron mentioned that he was kind of curious about how we fill our days so here we go.
Baby wakes up and nurses in bed for about ten minutes. Aaron gets up, changes him, reswaddles him and puts him back to bed. We all go back to sleep.
Hear Sam stirring in the monitor again. I go and get him and he nurses in bed again. After about ten minutes i take him back into the nursery, change, swaddle and back to sleep for Sam. Aaron sleeps through this feeding.
I head downstairs, pump a bottle for Friday night while reading blogs on my phone. Pump about 4 ounces, eat some peanuts, drink some water then i head back up to bed and go back to sleep. It’s about 6am at this point.
Sam is up again. Booo i only slept for 40 minutes. Sam screams while i change him since i decided to change him before feeding him. Wakes Aaron up and Aaron walks into the nursery thinking I’m still downstairs. Sam nurses in bed, then i take him back to the nursery, swaddle and back to sleep for all of us.
Sam is up for good. I feed him in bed, then Aaron and i play with him for about 15 minutes in bed. He’s the most happy and animated at this time.
We all get up. Aaron gets ready for work. I put Sam in the pack n play by the window downstairs and turn on nature sounds. He looks around and plays while i make coffee and get breakfast for me together.
I throw some laundry in the washer, make the bed and put some other laundry away. Drink coffee for a bit then Sam starts to look tired.
Put him in the bouncer with music and vibrations on for a nap.
I put the pacifier in his mouth a few times until he falls asleep at about 9:45. He sleeps for about .. 15 minutes. We try to get him back to sleep until we give up at 9:55, Aaron leaves for work and i take Sam upstairs to change him.
I feed Sam in bed and he falls asleep next to me. I start writing this blog post on my phone while lying next to him.
I sneak out of bed, grab my bowl of oatmeal that’s been sitting downstairs and eat it in bed next to Sam.
Sam wakes up. I try to get him back to sleep with the pacifier but he’s not having it so i nurse him again hoping that will put him back to sleep. If he starts the day with good naps, he is much more pleasant the rest of the day.
Sam wakes up for good. Grumpy…
But then i change him and he’s happy and we have playtime!
