Day 27: Daily Routine.
6:30-7:30AM- Sometime in this range Leland wakes up and I nurse him while trying to convince him he should sleep more. It usually doesn't work.
I change his diaper and put on his clothes for the day. Then we play!
-Bucket o' toys-
8ishAM- About an hour after we have woken up we eat breakfast. Generally bananas or another type of fruit for Leland. I try and eat some yogurt so we can share.
Then we play, listen to music, give our needy kitties some attention for another hour or so, until he starts getting cranky. I make him wait at least 2.5 hours until his first nap.
9:30ish AM- Nurse to sleep, naps last anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but usually at least an hour.
-sweet baby sleeping-
Once he wakes up from his nap, we play some more, read, or this is the time we run errands. This is also the time I try to take photos since it is the best lighting.
Noonish- Lunch and more nursing. Lunch consist of leftovers for me. Leland gets some veggies then a fruit.
3ishPM- Nurse to sleep, time for his second nap. Time for me to do some cleaning up, school work, etc.
Once he wakes up we play more (we play a lot during the day).
-the general set up, he really loves his mirrors-
We may also sneak in some peek-a-boo action.
Around 5 he wants to nurse again and maybe have a pre-dinner snack.
6pm- Dinner time! Leland can only have hummus at this time since it is so messy. He also likes to have veggies and then desert is frozen peaches or mangoes.
6:20pm- Bath time, lotion time, etc
6:45pm- Daddy reads night time stories
7pm- Nurse to sleep
We aren't on a tight schedule so I just go with what he wants, but I try to keep him to two naps. Sometimes we have to move dinner up because he wants to eat earlier, so then we just play after dinner to make up for the time. We are currently trying to push back bedtime to 7:30- it is a work in progress. I have a class next semester that ends at 6:30, so I won't be home until around 7:30 so bedtime needs to be then since I nurse him to sleep. It has been an adjustment and still is, but we will get there.
I also need to get out of the house everyday because otherwise Leland gets bored. We have to move around the house and play with different toys or he gets bored. But I am struggling in trying to find activities to do everyday. It was easier when we had to go to campus all the time, because that could be considered our outing for the day. With it being winter it the real issue, if it was warmer outside we could go on walks or to the park.
