A Day in the Life: 43 Month & 3 Month Edition

0400 -- We had a visitor appear at the end of our bed. Addison never comes into our room so we let her climb up in our bed. Mostly because we are too tired to do much else and also because she never does.

0601 -- Time to get up and exercise. Rob and I have been getting up to do Jillian Michaels' Body Revolution in the morning. Usually it's just us but this morning Addison joined us, adding an element of difficulty trying to avoid running into her.


0646 -- Done exercising. Since big kid has been up since she visited us this morning, it's going to be a long long day. Rob heads up to shower while I put my blog up for the day.


0705 -- Shower time. Meanwhile the hubs get breakfast for Addie. Connor is starting to stir.


0718 -- Connor is awake and ready to eat after 11 hours. (8 oz bottle)


0730 -- The hubs gets Addie dressed before he leaves for work. Then back to playing for Addison.


0754 -- Connor is done eating but I'm starving.


0759 -- Cocoa Pebble and Gilmore Girls for me. Connor is chilling in his bouncer while Addison continues to play.


0807 -- Tummy time


0816 -- Tummy time is done so he hangs out on his play mat for a few minutes before his morning nap. Addie starts looking through her colored pictures.


0835 -- Time for nap #1. He's tired. I'm exhausted but something tells me I won't get to nap.


0855 -- A bit of shushing and he's down. I could use a nap but I probably should find the big kid and see what she's up to. It's been too quiet.

0858 -- And I found her brushing her teeth.


0903 -- I figured I'm not going to get a lot done today thanks to extreme exhaustion but I can at least unload the dishwasher before I sit back down. Addie goes back to playing.


0911 -- Addie decides she's hungry again and snacks on cereal wile I finish the dishes.


0917 -- I'm going to finish the episode of Gilmore Girls I was watching then figure out if I want to watch another or if I'm going to get up and actually do something. Meanwhile Addie is back to playing cars.


0933 -- I'm up and moving and working on inventory books - a project I've been working on for a couple weeks now.


1043 -- For the better part of the last hour Addie has "helped" but as I moved to Connor's room to keep going she decides she's done and plays with the dollhouse. It'll go faster just me anyway.


1132 -- Little man's awake!


1136 -- After a decent nap, he's pretty hungry. While I feed him Addie is busy playing in the playroom. (7 oz bottle)


1208 -- He's done eating but I'm starving. He's got to burp first but that never comes easily.

1214 -- I start getting lunches ready and the hubs walks in the door for lunch.


1226 -- Lunch. Yes we are sitting in the living room again today and watching Gilmore Girls. It's mama's choice today thanks to a rough couple of days and extreme exhaustion since I've basically been up since 4am. Everyone is dealing well.


1250 -- The hubs heads back to work. Addie is now wired and all over the place. Connor is talking and borderline fussy which means it's almost nap time again.

1255 -- Upstairs for nap #2.


1304 -- He's down with just a little humming of his favorite song (The Hanging Tree - yeah I know not exactly a mommy win).

1317 -- Addie found Life and now I'm going to update the book inventory - what I spent all morning doing - on my computer with Gilmore Girls.


1427 -- I finally finished and now I'm going to relax before Connor gets up. I'm losing steam but Addie's still going strong. How?!


1440 -- Addie decided to rest with me.


1517 -- I woke up to Addie going upstairs and Connor fussing a little. I rested. Apparently Addie did not.

1529 -- Connor woke up but I'm hoping he'll go back to sleep. Addie decides to not be helpful and play in the same room. I send her out and cross my fingers for him to settle. That resulted in her momentarily being upset and hiding. Oh the joys of motherhood.

1532 -- Hungry. Then I help Addie put away the game and give her a snack too. Connor stopped fussing.


1621 -- Addie is wearing down watching the Justice League on the iPad. Perhaps she's regretting getting up at 4 am.


1628 -- It didn't take long for her to fall asleep.


1644 -- The littlest is awake and hungry.


1654 -- I make my usual 5 pm phone call to the hubs to check in a little earlier while Connor eats and Addie sleeps.

1710 -- The biggest is awake. Although she's not all there or awake since she keeps nodding off now and again. She wakes up for good when I tell her she can go back to playing on the iPad until dinner.


1733 -- The hubs is home again!


1735 -- The hubs takes over burping duty while I go make dinner.


1757 -- Dinner. Burrito bowl. One of our favorites.


1814 -- The biggest is exhausted and melting down. Early bedtime maybe? She's in timeout. Littlest needs another quick nap but at least not fussy. The hubs is handling so I'm going to take care of the dishes.


1822 -- She calmed and talked to daddy about why she ended up in timeout.

1829 -- It's hard to tell if Addie's eating or reading. A little of both. Meanwhile the hubs chills with Connor while I finish up the dishes.


1842 -- We have a little time before bath time for both kids so we are chilling and watching the Royals pregame.


1910 -- Bath time for Addie.


1941 -- Addie's done and drying off.

1950 -- Connor fell asleep but time for him to get a quick bath as well. Meanwhile Addie brushes her teeth and gets ready for bed.


1955 -- I take Addie to read while the hubs continues getting Connor ready for bed by giving him his night bottle (7 oz).


2007 -- Addie is down in bed. Connor is still taking his bottle. I head around the house to pick up a little.


2031 -- Settling in to watch the Royals game and to work on the blog. Connor finished eating (7.5 oz) and now getting him to burp before putting him down for the night.


2046 -- Connor is in his port-a-crib awake but mostly quiet. Often he puts himself to asleep at night. Meanwhile Rob gathers trash for trash day tomorrow. He wants to get that taken care of so he can also sit down and relax some too.

2230 -- We head upstairs to go to bed.
