Everybody keeps asking me how we are getting along after my surgeries and now a mom of two. So I thought I would sum it up by posting a few hours of our day today and let it speak for itself.
7:00 am - Olivia awakes in a good mood smiling and cooing
7:30 am - Olivia wants to eat
7:45 am - Grace awakes and wants her glass of milk (luckily I already had it made and sitting by the bedside)
8:00 am - Chad kisses us all good bye and heads to work
8:15 am - Grace and I have breakfast while Olivia takes a nap
8:30 am - Grace and I take a shower together (this is the first time I have bathed Grace since I had Olivia. I figured that leaning over the bathtub would be a little hard so a shower together sounds like a good idea.)
8:45 - 10:45 - All three of us get dressed, Grace plays with toys, Olivia sleeps off and on and wants to be held a lot, Grace watches TV, I try to get a few things done around the house...clothes, dishes, etc.
11:00am - Olivia is ready to eat RIGHT NOW! And Grace does not want to get off my lap. So I begin to make Grace lunch.
11:15 am - Grace is eating an early lunch while I am in the den tending to Olivia
11:45 am - In the last thirty minutes I have checked on Grace several times but as I am sitting in the den feeding Olivia I hear Grace's plate fall to the floor. Since we have been having issues with her throwing her plates, cups, utensils on the floor when she is finished. I with a very stern voice say, "Grace Elizabeth", as a march into the kitchen. And this is now where it becomes hard to be a parent...I have full intentions on getting on to her about this behavior. BUT as soon as I see her I can't help but laugh...What was she doing with her lunch!!! In this picture you can kind of see the mess on the floor.
11:50-12:30- Clean up the kitchen. Try to clean Grace up but realize it is going to be impossible with chocolate pudding in her hair, on her face, on her toes...so I give her a bath. Yes, it is her second time getting bathed in less then four hours. All this time Grace is still having a blast as Olivia is screaming in her swing.
12:45 - NAP time. Thank goodness for my girls taking good naps. (I had just laid Grace down and she is faking she is sleeping...too cute.)
