A Day in our Life // 007

May 23, 2018

I almost didn't share this post because I realized after working on the details of it all day, (tracking our day and taking/editing photos) that the last time I did one of these was only three months ago. Then I read that post and it was crazy how much has changed. Not just for Asher, but for Solomon, too. We are loving the change in weather and the change in our routine almost daily now. It's going to be such a fun Spring and Summer with these boys!

5.22.18 // tuesday


8:15 - I wake up to silence which is really odd for our house. Normally the sound machine is on high in both Solomon and Asher's room but I heard nothing. I then hear movement downstairs so I leave Asher snoozing on the bed to find that cutie below. When I asked him what he was doing he simply said "I'm working". He also thought it was a good idea to turn off the sound machines before he went to work downstairs. He's such a mess... 

8:30 - after I change Solomon's diaper I check my to do list that I wrote down the night before. I'm so happy I've started doing this again. Even if everything doesn't get finished, (and it almost never does!) at least I have a plan for the day. 

8:35 - I give Solomon some breakfast and go back upstairs to check on Asher and he is laying on the bed looking around. Once he sees me he starts to wave his arms around and gives me the sweetest little grin. I go get his clothes for the day and change his diaper before heading back downstairs.

8:45 - Solomon gets comfy on the couch for a tv show, Little Einsteins is his favorite right now. 
I then throw the load of laundry in the washing machine before getting my coffee.

9:10 - after I change out of my pajamas and put on a little makeup, I go get some cuddles from Asher while Solomon finishes his show. He still loves his swing most mornings and lasted a long time while I was getting ready. I change Solomon's clothes and we get ready to leave and go to Auntie Joy's house for some fun with cousins. 

9:40 - I'm greeted by Jonah at the door like always as he gives me the rundown on their morning so far. This kid always knows how to make me smile!! 
Sophie and Asher have some fun on the floor, and Solomon is excited to see Sophie, too.

9:50 - going to Auntie Joy's house always includes waffles, which makes Solomon very happy! 

10:40 - I lay Asher down for his nap in the guest bedroom and go downstairs to hang out with the boys while Joy get's Sophie down for her nap. As I'm reading a book to the boys in the playroom I accidentally spill my entire cup of ice water which pretty much landed entirely on Solomon since he was in my lap. Poor guy, it was so cold!!! But I threw his clothes in the dryer so they would dry and he got to be a naked batman instead. 

11:50 - Asher wakes up from his nap and Solomon's clothes are dry. Watching these guys running around in their super hero gear will never get old. And I love how Solomon is so obsessed with his oldest cousin Jaden. It's so sweet! 

12:45 - we get home just in time to see daddy going back to work after his lunch break.
We then make a quick lunch before heading upstairs for naptime. 

1:10 - after a quick book, Solomon lays down to go to sleep for his nap. One of the biggest changes in in our life recently his Solomon's awesome sleep habits. He is napping again, usually 1PM-3PM, and he's also falling asleep on his own for both naptime and bedtime. It has been so wonderful for all of us and I'm so proud of him!! 

2:00 - after some one on one time with Asher, he is down for his second nap.
I then head downstairs to watch The Voice from the night before & do my daily workout. My grandma also comes by to say hello and see the boys for a little while. I made us both a shake to enjoy while we wait for them to wake up. 

3:00 - I go to get Solomon up from his nap (I usually have to wake him) and he's excited to see mama. Asher wakes up about 15 minutes later. I'm glad she got to spend some time with both of them and get some cuddles. 

3:30 - after my grandma leaves, Solomon gets to have his daily Star Wars time. We have limited it to 25 minutes a day after his nap. It's a good incentive for him to go to sleep for his nap and it also helps him wake up a little happier. The boy sure does love his Star Wars! 

4:00 - I fold the laundry from earlier that morning while playing light sabers (of course) with Solomon and Asher plays in his exersaucer. 

4:30 - After I'm finished folding the laundry, I sit on the floor with Asher so he can practice sitting up. I also chat with Solomon about birthdays and answer a lot of questions. I really, really love all our conversations lately. It is so funny to hear what he says and how he says it. He also asked for an apple and peanut butter so we share one while Asher plays in his exersaucer again. 

4:55 - I'm trying my best to have some "school time" each day with Solomon so we can work on numbers, letters and other fun things with him. He really loves it too, which makes it a lot of fun for me. I sit with him while  he practices his numbers and feed Asher while we wait for daddy to get home. 

Busy days but I love it so much. Just noticing how much has changed in just a few months makes me want to savor each moment even more, Even if that means I'm up till almost midnight working on this post. It's worth it, and I am so thankful for my sweet family!

Oh no, no more Disqus commenting?! ;)

I need to start making lists of what I want to accomplish in a day! That would help me feel so much less scattered. Also, naked batman after an ice water baptism is pretty cute :)
