//Day in the life

I think what society portrays a SAHM vs. a typical day as SAHM are very different. 

Our day typically starts between 5-6am. Liam gets up and is ready for a bottle since his last one is between 6:30-7pm at night. He's almost sleeping through the night. He's still learning how to settle himself. This new sleep sack has really been a miracle worker. 

He can't touch his face and eyes anymore which was waking him up when he was clearly exhausted. 
Usually we still see Andrew and my mom before they leave for work for the day. 
I turn on the news and Liam plays. I sip coffee and then when it's breakfast time I bring Liam to high chair to eat with me. He's still not interested in food so sometimes I give him banana to play with and other times we just sit and interact. 

He enjoys playing and interacting so I know when he's ready he will really start chowing down. 
After breakfast we usually play until naptime. 
Usually during this nap I don't get much done. I just use it to relax and just enjoy the quiet for a bit. 
Once Liam is up he gets another bottle and we play and eat lunch together and then I usually get us ready for a walk or playtime at the park. He loves being outside and it usually gets all his energy out. 

He seriously just gets so calm being outside. So on especially fussy days I really look forward to this time of day. 

He usually takes his afternoon nap sometimes in the stroller or by the time were home he's out in the crib. 

The evenings are hard for me usually. It's just that time of day where sometimes I feel it drags on but everyone comes home so he can get loved on by grandma, papa dig, auntie and sometimes daddy if he gets home early enough. 
Typically we play and I get dinner started and then I start our bedtime routine. Quiet play, a book, a bath ( although lately he's been over bath time) a bottle and a song and then I lay him down. 

It's pretty nice to have the evening to myself to just relax and Andrew and I can just talk and hang out. Usually I take a nice long bath to end the day. 

This routine has taken a while to get the hang of but I'm so happy to finally be in a rhythm even if it's the same everyday. It's created a lot more harmony having a routine for the day. I couldn't imagine not spending by days at home and I'm grateful everyday for them. 

Love forever,
