People told me that when you have a baby the days seem to fly by, I had no idea how true that statement really is.
Trying to fit all of the things I need to get done in the span of a day can be tricky. Here are what my days look like now:
E is usually awake between 7:15-8am, which let me tell you having a new baby give you over 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep is absolutely glorious! I bring her downstairs, change her, feed her, and then she usually hangs out in her bassinet so I can start my to-do list. Kyle is usually gone to work by this time but if he is home he takes her. :) She will fall asleep for an hour or so.
I spend my time eating breakfast, cleaning up, putting away dishes or laundry, and taking care of Emma and Fishy. I also usually shower and get ready and then get E dressed so we both aren't lazy and in pajamas all day haha. If we have errands to run we will knock those out early in the day.
We always have time on the playmat including tummy time which she absolutely hates haha. It's funny because Emma and Fishy usually hang out close to her when she is on the floor and they just watch her. :)
She is usually hungry around noon and then she hangs out on her boppy and then falls asleep again. This is my prime opportunity to get school work done. My view now is completely different than before. :)
The classes I am currently taking have been going smooth so far (Psychopathology and Professional Ethics and Standards), but I need to focus and when she is napping it's the perfect time.
Now that Kyle is done with rotation he is usually home by 3pm and he will take over for me. I will have an hour or so for some me time which usually includes a run or just playing mindless games on my phone haha and then I'm in the kitchen making dinner. If Kyle isn't home by then E is in her bassinet watching me cook. :)
It has actually been a lot smoother of a transition than we expected. She is such an easy going baby that I am able to get things done that I need to. She prefers to not be held all the time and that has made things so much easier.
She has been the best addition to our family. :)
I hope you all have a great weekend!
