My day continued...

Ok, so while she is watching TV and playing with her toys, I normally get Baby K's diapers out of the dryer and put the inserts in them. We decided to switch to cloth diapers in February and I absolutely love it, I will make a later post detailing the types of diapers I have, how I like the, costs, etc. Around 9:30AM-10:30AM Baby K gets hungry and I mix her up some Rice Cereal and Oatmeal. She usually eats about 6 teaspoons with 1-2 jars of baby food. I normally start with fruits in the morning. If she finishes a whole jar and wants more then I get out a veggie. Sometimes she'll only eat half, sometimes she will eat the whole thing. If she eats both jars and wants more, I give her a 3 ounce bottle of formula. Once she is finished eating I rock her a little and she usually goes down for a nap around 10:30AM-11:00AM. She normally naps about an hour to two hours if I'm lucky... every so often she goes about 2 1/2 hours and I LOVE it! While she is out for her nap I run outside to feed my birds and the horses. Our horses are out on pasture, but I give them a little grain just to make sure they keep good weight on. When I get back inside sometimes Baby K is awake and sometimes she is not. If she isn't then, I'll grab something to eat and get on the internet or I'll work on writing up grants for the non profit I volunteer for. If she is awake, then I get her up, change her diaper, and then take her out to the living room to play. She will play for a while and then when she gets hungry I fix her a bottle, she normally takes 8-10 ounces at this time. She plays more after she finishes her bottle, then around 5:00PM-6:00PM I mix her Rice Cereal and Oatmeal again and get out a jar of veggies. If she finishes it and wants more I give her another veggie. Some times she will take a little nap after this meal and sometimes she won't, depends on whats going on. When Daddy gets home he will take a shower, we'll eat dinner and then he will hold Baby K or play with her. Around 9:00PM-9:30PM Baby K has her night bottle, about 8 ounces, and usually falls asleep on Daddy. I take her to bed and then I either watch TV with the hubby or I "play" on the internet.

Now some days my schedule has to change, depending on what is going on or if I have appointments to make. Wednesdays she usually skips she afternoon nap because we go to Church. I have my Women's Group. On Sundays our schedule is even more funky because we go to church in the AM so it makes her skip her nap... which she normally takes on the way home from church. We also go back to church in the evening for Bible Study and I do crafts with the children. So on Sundays she mostly gets bottles because they are quick and easy to fix, plus Baby K can hold her own bottle now.

Ok, so now you get a short outline of my day!
Looking forward to sharing more!

As if I'm not busy enough...

I have decided to start this blog. I'm not sure why, I just had a feeling that I needed to do it! So, I guess I will just start off and tell you how my day normally goes:

Around 7:00AM-7:30AM Baby K, our baby girl, gets up. I usually let the dogs out, make the baby a bottle, then go to the baby's room. The best feeling in the world is walking into her room, looking down into the crib and see her smiling face beaming back at me. She is SO happy to see me. I take her out, change her diaper and take her to the living room. I set her down on her Boppy Pillow and give her the bottle I had made previously. I turn on the TV and find Playhouse Disney, usually Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is on, which she LOVES. It usually takes her 15-30 minutes to take her bottle, depending on if she plays with the bottle or not. She thinks it is so funny to turn the bottle up side down and suck on the bottom of the bottle, at which point milk goes all over her legs. While she is taking her bottle, I some times nap on the couch next to her (I'm in no way, shape, or form a morning person), or I do the dishes. Depending on the previous night, IF I put the dishes in the dishwasher and started it the night before I unload it and put them away. If not, I load it up and start the load.

When Baby K is finished with her bottle she sits on the floor and plays with toys and watches cartoons. Her favorites are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Chuggington, Imagination Movers, and Jungle Junction.

Well, I have started this blog too late and now I have to get dinner on the table...
I will continue with my next post.

More to come as well!
