Our new routine

Hello again….

I’m going to try to squeeze in as much of an update as possible while Claire is napping…. And since she is the new boss around here, I’m just not sure how much time I’ll have. ๐Ÿ™‚

She’s a a pretty cute boss though.


Now that Claire is almost 2 months old we have a pretty good routine figured out here. Really, she is the one that figured it out and I just go with the flow. ๐Ÿ™‚

(By the way, she already woke up so the rest of this post if from nap number 2.)

Our day starts out pretty easy. She wakes up around 6-7, eats, poops, stares at me for a little while, and goes down for a nap around 9ish. This cycle continues until about 6-7 at night when Chris gets home. Then she is awake for a few hours, eats, poops, and naps until 10ish. Then she eats, gets a bath, and goes to bed until 6-7 in the morning. (Yep, thats right! She has been sleeping through the night for the past week!)

Of course she throws a curveball in this routine when anything else is happening during the day, which happens the majority of the week. haha We became pros at going out and messing up this routine when we my parents were visiting, but it was totally worth it. I’ll tell you all about their trip in my next post.

Overall, everything is going really, really well with Claire. She eats like a champ, poops like a champ, and sleeps like an angel (most of the time). It is definitely an adjustment to having her run my schedule for the day, but she is so darn cute that I dont mind.

Before I move on to the next post, here are a few more Claire pics. ๐Ÿ™‚

Such a fitting onesie! She absolutely loves laying on her changing table and kicking. She will giggle and talk a ton while laying there.

Notice the hairdo? Apparently she went from 6-week old to 70-year old in a few days. After her bath a few weeks ago, she suddenly had zero hair on the top of her head. haha Thankfully it is already starting to grow back a bit. ๐Ÿ™‚

Even though they say not to put your baby down for a nap on their tummies, I thought I’d try it one day to see if it would calm her down. She may look peaceful here, but about 30 seconds later she was hollering again.

We love going for walks! She usually falls asleep in her stroller and gives me a little time to work off this baby flub. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thankfully there are some parks very close to our house.

She also loves sleeping in the Baby Bjorn. This is my view of her before a little stroll. ๐Ÿ™‚ She gets all cozy and falls asleep (as long as I am moving!).

This is Claire and our cleaning lady, Erica. Erica helps out with Claire as well as the cleaning, two days a week. Its amazing how much it helps to have a shower and breakfast at my own pace. ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus, Claire absolutely loves Erica and will smile and lauch while she is holding her. She is a pro since she has 3 girls of her own.

Hef felt a little left out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course, after holding Claire, Hef feels really heavy!
