Our Routine & Sitting Up! Well...Almost...

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Hi Everyone! I am sure you have been just as busy as we have getting ready for the big Christmas Holiday!! Yeah!! I think I finally finished up my shopping last night, with the exception of one or two more things so now its on to wrapping!

Emma is getting bigger and bigger everyday. We are heading to her 6 month (wow) appointment in the first week of January and I can't wait to see how tall she is and how much she weighs. She is drinking about 6 ounces of formula about 4 times a day with maybe two smaller 2 - 4 ounce bottles thrown in there after she eats her baby food. I thought it would be fun to post our typical routine!

5:30AM: Emma wakes up in her crib and talks to herself until Mommy can pull herself out of bed to go get her. She is pretty consistent with when she wakes up with the random 4:30AM or 6:00AM wake up thrown in there.

5:45AM: Normally I get her out of her crib and we snuggle for just a few minutes as she wakes up and gets used to the lights, etc. We then get a clean diaper on and head right for our first 6 ounce bottle with our vitamins in it. It usually takes her about 15 minutes to polish that off, then it is off to the bathroom in her pink, bouncy chair while Mommy and Daddy get ready for work.

6:45AM - 7:15AM: I usually try to head out the door by 6:45AM so we can be at daycare by 7:00AM but that usually happens about twice a week. Its normally about 7:00 or 7:15AM when I actually get out of the house haha.

8:00AM - 8:30AM: This is usually the time frame when daycare will feed the little ones that are on cereal and baby food. Emma will eat her cereal and container of fruit (the past few days she has eaten the whole thing), then she follows that up with a small 2 - 4 ounce bottle and usually passes out for a good 3 hour nap!

12:00PM: She usually wakes up around noon and has her next 6 ounce bottle, plays for maybe an hour to an hour and half and then goes back down for nap number 2! We definitely got a sleeper!

4:00PM: Time for another 6 ounce bottle and playing until Mommy or Daddy pick her up from school!

6:00PM: By the time we pick her up, gather all her things and head home its about 6:00PM and we usually get settled and have our next round of baby food, which is more cereal and a veggie! Then its play time before heading to take a bath!

6:30PM-6:45PM: Bath time pretty much ALWAYS follows baby food time because she is such a mess!! I think I should start feeding her IN the bath. :)

7:00PM: BED TIME! Bath usually only takes about 15 minutes or so (20 if she is in a really good mood and wanting to play) then its usually another quick 2 - 4 ounce bottle and she is passed out! She sleeps through the night until about 5:30AM and we then rinse and repeat!

Then it's time for Mommy and Daddy to get started on all their nightly chores like, washing clothes, cleaning up dinner, getting bottles ready for the next day, etc. That's pretty much our life! So far, Emma has tried Bananas (not a fan), Peaches, Pears (loves), Prunes (loves) and Sweet Potatoes. I think tonight though it might be carrots or sweet peas for the first time!

She is getting so big that she can sit up now! At least for a little while haha. She can only do it if you put her in the, what I like to call, tripod position, but she is usually good for about 15 - 30 seconds! It's adorable! I often wonder what she is thinking during that time...I wonder if its like viewing a whole new world!

  1. I still can't believe that Emma is almost 6 months old. Time does really fly. When did you start with baby food?

    Annabelle has just started eating 4oz this month, but we are still working to put weight on her.
