As promised, here is the next 24 hour chronicle of life with my baby. Last time she was 2 months old. There aren't too many differences this time at 4 months! Actually, this 24 hours took place over the day that she was 4 months exactly.
We begin our adventure at bedtime on Monday, August 23rd.
9:30 p.m. Baby Girl is in bed for the night
12:30, 3:30, 5:45 a.m. she is awake to nurse
7:30 a.m. I pull her over into my bed to nurse while we both snooze
8:30 a.m. We are both awake for the day... one of us with a smile:
Ok, so I smile too when I see that happy little grin. Who could help it?
First things first- diaper change and get dressed!
8:45 a.m. Baby Girl hangs out on the couch with me while I eat a bowl of cereal
9:00 a.m. We start the laundry.. and there's plenty of it.
Baby Girl spends a few minutes in her bouncy seat while I fold some clean laundry
9:30 a.m. I get myself together for the day and feed Baby Girl again
10:00 a.m. I decide it's a nice day and we're going to the park for a walk!
I thought this playground was kind of impressive. Looks like it might make a good location for someone's 1st birthday party (whenever that distant day arrives no time soon)
She was a happy girl strolling along
...and asleep by the time we got back to the car.
11-11:30 a.m. nap in the stroller/car
Not that consequential, we stop for gas and a slice of pizza at Costco on the way home.
11:45 a.m. Back at home it's time for a diaper change and another feeding
12:15 p.m. Another diaper change, then we chat and play on the couch for a little while.
Notice that fierce thumb-sucking action. This girl is serious about her thumb.
Pretty soon she's getting tired and ready for a nap.
12:45 p.m. She is bundled in a blankie and ready to snooze
1:00 p.m. Baby girl is out, I eat my lunch and update my blog
1:30 p.m. I continue doing laundry and find a dinner recipe
2:30 p.m. Baby Girl starts waking up.
The following series of pictures were so cute I couldn't leave any out. Enjoy...
We start with the yawn
"Can I help you? Why are you pointing that thing at me?"
"Are you taking pictures again?!"
And then she starts stretching while still wrapped in the blanket
Baby Girl emerges victorious
2:45 p.m. Feed baby
3:00 p.m. Change diaper, head to the grocery store to grab a few things for dinner
3:50 p.m. Home from the store. Baby Girl spends a few minutes in her bouncy seat while I put away groceries and tidy up the kitchen and living room
4:45 p.m. Feed baby again!
5:15 p.m. Daddy is home and they play happily for a bit
5:30 p.m. Pizza for dinner
6:15 p.m. We turn on a few episodes of "30 Rock"
Baby girl watches from my lap. The "30 Rock" theme is one of her favorite songs to dance to!
6:45 p.m. Feed Baby Girl again, she falls asleep for an evening nap
8:00 p.m. Baby Girl wakes up and we talk and play on the couch for a while
9:15 p.m. Baby Girl gets her jammies on and we talk and play a little more before bed time.
10:00 p.m. Baby Girl is asleep and in bed!
Pretty exciting, right? We live a simple life. Tomorrow I'll let you know what kinds of things our Baby Girl is doing at 4 months old. Stay tuned!
