I thought it would be fun to share a little about our day. Savannah just turned one (which is crazy) and our day is usually jam packed full of fun! Read about our derby themed birthday party. We have somewhat of a routine, as much as you can with a baby! And wouldn’t you know, I keep reading that she is a toddler. I say NO WAY to that. I will keep saying baby, because that is where she is in our hearts! So whether you are debating having a baby, have a one year old, or have older kids, this is just a little peek into an average day (and night schedule) for us!7-7:30am: Wake up, nurse, play for about 10 minutes in crib until she needs us!
8am: Eat breakfast (Mommy drinks LOTS of coffee)
8:30am: Play in playroom
9am: Get ready for Stroller Strides (exercise)
9:30 – 10:30am: Stroller Strides class
10:30 – 11:00am: Play after class with friends
11:30am: Get home, nurse, snuggles, take nap
12:30pm: Wake, eat lunch
1:00pm: Run errands or play
5:00pm: Dinner, play, snuggles
6:00pm: Bath, books, snuggles, snack
7:00pm: Bed (we started the cry it out progressive method around 5 months, blog post coming soon!)
3:00am: Nurse, snuggles
5:00am: Nurse, snugglesThe nighttime feedings are an average, some nights better than others. I am still nursing (at 13 months) and loving the bonding aspect of it. This schedule would probably be a little different for the night time if not nursing.
I think my favorite part of having a one year old is watching her grow and develop a little personality. I can just look at her cute little legs learning to walk and her little fingers grasp toys, figuring them out. She motivates me to be a better person and keeps a smile on my face. And my husband works so hard between two jobs caring for us girls. We couldn’t ask for a better daddy and husband and we are truly blessed having such a happy, healthy girl! With Father’s Day coming up, we can’t wait to celebrate him! I have heard this before, but you enjoy every stage of your children’s lives. Do I miss the tiny baby? Well, there are pros and cons to each stage in my opinion. And for now, we are living in the moment and loving every minute of it!Here are a few of my favorite things to have with a one year old:
Amazon Prime Subscription!(We get discounted diapers, wipes, dog food (because who wants to carry that through the grocery) and coffee!) And you get Amazon Prime music, which has been amazing for our dance parties and car rides!
A mom tribe (you know who you are!)
Pouch sippy tops (to avoid pouch spills)
Ikea high chair (easy to clean and travel with)
COFFEE (wait, did I already say that??)
Roomba vacuum (even if you don’t have a cat, ha!) We decided to get a ROOMBA instead of gifts last year for Christmas. BEST DECISION EVER!
Do you have a one year old? Please share below some of your favorite things or moments!
Thanks for reading!
