A Day in the Life

Life is flying by with two littles.  I wanted to take a moment to remember what these days were like.  Because I really can't remember these days when Addison was Savannah's age... and really, it wasn't that long ago!

Currently Savannah is 6 mo, and Addison is 2 years.

We have a great morning routine right now!  Addison gets up at 7 and we hold off Savannah's breakfast bottle till then.  Both girls and I cuddle up on Savannah's oversized rocker, Savannah gets her bottle and then we read some books.  I get the girls dressed then we head downstairs for Addison's breakfast and Savannah's solid breakfast.  We then head out for a morning walk with our dog, Ellie.

Savannah takes a nap while Addi and I get some one on one time.  Most days we try and get out in the morning.  Whether it's playing outside, story time, the store, or play date.  Our current favorites are signing time at a local library, story time at Barnes and Noble or the library, or play dates!  Getting out with two in tow has gotten easier.  Savannah is pretty good at sitting with Addi or sitting in the cart!  Much easier than lugging around her in the carseat.  Addison does a great job staying close to me and holding my hand.  She climbs in Savannah's side of the jeep and gets herself into her seat for me to come and buckle her in.

We usually eat lunch at home.  Savannah's on a pretty good breakfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime bottle schedule.  She is eating solids now and can't get enough of it!  Thankfully I am getting the girls both down for naps around 1:00 and it's been wonderful!  I work on etsy sales, do some housework, or take some downtime!

After naps is usually filled with some more playing and a snack.  Addison has loved pretend playing or talking Savannah's ear off.  Savannah is crawling and gets up to her knees on everything - so she loves trying to keep up with her sister.  Watching these two interact has been so cute.  They are going to be best of friends!  (Or at least I hope so!)

Once daddy gets home it seems to be craziness until bedtime!  Daddy is our chef (love him for that) so he cooks while I entertain the girls and we catch up on our days.  We all eat dinner then try to play together as a family or squeeze in a walk or errand.  Then bedtime for Savannah at 7 and Addi by 7:30!    

We are so blessed!
