a day in the life of grayden and mommy

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

~6:30am daddy wakes up with Grayden to feed and change
~6:45am story time with daddy, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" was his choice!
~7:00am daddy brings Grayden to snuggle in bed with mommy just like we do every morning

~7:30 Grayden falls asleep and mommy watches tv in the bedroom, normally I watch the today show but the MJ thing is really not my thing so this particular morning I watched some infomercials….my weakness…I almost bought a Tan Towel… so i thought i better change the channel to Saved by the Bell (it was the episode when they were in Hawaii, my favorite!)
~8:00 I get up and get going
~9:00 I check on Grayden, he's still sleeping!! I check some blogs and watch the recent 'secret life' episode online…it was a tear jerker.

~11:00he finally wakes up and he’s HUNGRY!! Has a bottle, diaper change and gets dressed for the day! ~11:15 chills in his swing while mom finishes up getting ready
~11:30 head out the door to meet up with a friend for a stroller walk. but first make a stop at the cemetery to visit big brother Brenham’s grave site who was due to arrive a year ago today.

~12:00 pm we go for our stroller walk, as long as we were moving Grayden was sleeping!

~2:00 head home from our walk and visit
~2:15 time to eat, and change diaper again
~2:45 we snuggle on the couch and relax together.
~3:20 Grayden falls asleep on my chest…love it! ~4:20 decide I need to get off the couch so I move Grayden to the floor; he wakes up when I do so. Put him under his play mat and he chills while I make a pasta salad for the family party we have tonight.
~4:35 decided he didn’t really like playing on the floor so much and would much rather be worn in mom’s Hotsling ~5:00 we finish making the pasta salad and wait for daddy to come home!

5:15 daddy’s home! he feeds him, changes him to get ready for the party and spends some time snuggling
6:15 we leave for the party!
6:20-9:00 had a great time at the pool party, nice conversation, great weather, and delicious food, Grayden slept, ate and had an emergency diaper change (thanks Grammie!) followed by a clothing change
9:00 home watching the Tiger’s game9:30 boys are asleep on the chair….awww

~11:30 Grayden has his last bottle, diaper change and into his pj’s and swaddeled up for the night.

What a great day being his mommy :)

Hope you had fun following along on our day!

Thank you for showing me a glimpse into your day! I think you have a wonderful little guy, he seems very easy going. Cannot wait to see the other half of your day!

Kate said...

yes! he is very easy going! today he had abnormally long naps too so that helps! he's been such a joy! I told him to be on his best behavior for his "day in my life" post today! he's a good listener :)

I remember when our days were so simple. I MISS THEM! hahaha but I love the little man he has grown into be. So precious!

OH btw... that was my fave episode too! hahahaha

In two days we will be heading to the cemetery to celebrate our Olivia's 4th birthday. July 9th. So amazing in 4 years where we are now. Even you at one year later... God is so faithful!

Katie- I'm so glad we could celebrate ALL the birthdays tonight at our party. Brenham will always have a special place in our hearts.

I awarded you with the Amazing Lady Award.
This award is presented to those ladies who simply amaze others by their strength and courage. So many people give up when life gets tough, but so many keep fighting.

You are such a beautiful family, thanks for sharing your day. I remember when my son would sleep on me so easily, but at 15 weeks now all he wants to do is sit up and look around :) Enjoy the time you have with him, it truly flies by.

What a nice glimpse into your life! I have a little girl who was born on April 2... but she wasn't due until May so she looks about the same size as your Grayden.
I found you through TheBlogFrog, look forward to reading more of your blog.
