Happy WIAW. I haven’t done a WIAW since Ben was born and in light of the fact that my days are VERY different I thought I would do one… let’s begin
12:30am-B’s up to eat. He went down around 8:45 with no issues so I get up an nurse him and he goes right back down
12:55am– Back to bed! I know the first stretch is always the longest so I’ll be up in a couple of hours.
3:15am– B’s up again! Feed him and change him since he is very wet and his PJ’s are a bit wet too.
3:45am– Back to bed
5:55am – B’s up! Quick feed and he goes right back down
6:15am– I get dressed and head downstairs for a quick run! Time to sweat and watch Transparent.
6:20am- Sara pops downstairs dressed in her green clothes and ready for the day. Thankfully I can finish my run.
6:45am– Workout done- It’s fast but at least I got it in! 2 miles in under 19 minutes… plus about 10 minutes of core work!
6:50am-7:00am Pump- I’ve been building up a supply for when I return to work. I pump 1-2 times a day depending on the day
7:05am– Make Sara her requested green smoothie in honor of St. Patrick’s day. Everyone is Irish today right!?! Shhh, don’t tell her that their is kale in her peanut butter and banana smoothie!! She loves it!!
7:10am– Hop a very fast shower and get dressed!
7:15am Kiss the Hubs goodbye.. he leaves for work and thankfully emptied the dishwasher!! One less thing to do this morning
7:25am– Breakfast for me– Quick and easy today since B is still sleeping and I NEED to be productive.
7:40am– Play and read with Sara, make her lunch and get a little blogging done. B is starting to stir a little bit
7:50am– Sara leaves for school! Kiss her goodbye and off she goes.
7:55am– B’s up– it’s as though he knows
8:00-8:30am– Feed and change
8:30am– Play, sing, read… repeat
9:10am– Swaddle B up and put him down for a nap. First attempt in his crib is a fail so I put him in the rock n play and he goes down.
9:15- 9:45am– Write thank you notes and catch up on some emails.
9:50am- Snack time or breakfast #2… This mama is always hungry!! Oh She Glows Granola with homemade almond milk! THE BEST
10:00am– B is still sleeping 🙂 So I prep myself a massaged kale salad for lunch!!
10:15am– Sit down and relax for the first time today!!
10:20am– B’s up… shocking right?! 🙂 No rest for this lady!
10:25-11:35am– Eat, change.. clean up from massive blowout.. play, read.. etc
11:40am– B shows sleepy signs so it’s back to the swaddle to get ready for a nap.
11:55am- B’s asleep in the rock n play
12:15pm– Lunch- Massaged kale salad that I made earlier. The only thing I wish I had is an avocado! Salad is topped with dried can berries, walnuts, pecan parmesan cheese and chickpeas.
12:45pm B is up from his nap. I wish he would nap longer
12:50-1:50pm Feed, play.. etc
1:55pm Time to get out of the house. We head to Target quickly and B falls asleep in the car and sleeps while I shop VERY quickly in Target.
2:40pm B wakes up while we are checking out and has a massive crying fit on the way home. He maybe slept 35 minutes. I have no idea but he is NOT happy. Our ride home is less then 5 minutes but boy is he screaming. I unload him and then he falls back asleep. Go figure right! I’m starting to think this kid is going to need a pacifier. I’m trying to avoid it but I’m wondering if he would nap better.
2:55 I grab an apple and snack on these and drink a bottle of water.
3:15pm– Sara get’s dropped off from school. We catch up on all the St. Patrick’s Day fun.
4:00pm– The Hubs comes home from work
4:30pm The little man WAKES UP– I can’t believe he ended up sleeping that long
5:00pm Feed the little guy and make a simple dinner because the Hubs is leaving at 5:15
5:25pm– Sara and I sit down to dinner. I have butternut squash and chicken quinoa soup. Something I made and froze last month plus asparagus. Nothing exciting but I needed simple tonight!
5:50pm I swaddle up the little guy and he goes down really nicely for another nap
6:00pm Play with Sara, pack lunch for tomorrow and clean up around the house and work on this post while Sara colors
6:30pm– B wake’s up- I guess they all can’t be 2 1/2 hour naps. We do our thing…
6:45pm The Hubs gets home and plays with Sara while I am feeding and changing B
7:00pm Shower time for Sara while I play with B in his room
7:15pm Story time for all of us 🙂
7:30pm Sara goes to bed and B has one more quick nap on me while I finish this post. Yes, I have learned how to blog with a sleeping baby on me. I’m thinking about some popcorn with coconut oil for one more snack before bed or maybe some kind of nut butter snack!
Sometimes I wonder where the days go… now I guess I know! I can’t believe the little man is 7 weeks old already. 7 weeks of pregnancy went so SLOWLY… but these last 7 weeks have flown by!!
What did you do yesterday?
