A day in the life...

I wanted to blog about our daily life right now so I can look back in a couple of years and remember what our day to day life looks like...

Ava usually wakes up anytime between 6:30-7:00am.

She nurses and sometimes she will want to go right back to sleep. Usually she lays in bed with us and she talks and babbles for awhile.

She goes back down for a nap at around 8am. This is when I make breakfast (or Bryce makes breakfast). we just hang out and watch tv or get on our computers.

Ava usually takes about an hour and a half nap. When she wakes, she nurses and then usually plays in her exersaucer or play mat.

She goes back down for a nap again at around 11am and I usually clean up a little around the house...dishes, laundry, etc. Bryce and I also work out at this time. We have been doing a P90X knockoff video. We have both lost about 5 pounds in the past 2 weeks!

Ava wakes up at around 12:30pm and she nurses and then we say bye to Daddy as he goes off to work. If we have any errands to run, we will go after Bryce leaves for work.

We usually get back home before its time for Ava to eat again. Once she eats, she plays for a little while and then will go down for a good 2-3 hour nap. Sometimes I will nap or do some more cleaning around the house or get on my computer.

She wakes up at around 5:30pm and nurses and plays again for a little while. I give her a bath at around 7:00pm and get her ready for bed. She goes to bed at around 7:45pm for the night. She usually wakes again at around 11pm to nurse again. This is when Bryce gets home from work and he plays with Ava for about 15 minutes then she goes back to bed.

Ava wakes up at around 4:30am for some reason. I usually have to go in her room and rock her back to sleep. I think we are done with night feedings though. Finally! Being in the states really through her off schedule. Its nice to be back into a routine now.

I'm sure I will look back at this in a few years and think how easy my life was. I'm sure my afternoon naps are going to be short lived.
