A Day in Our Life

One of my friends does “Day in the Life” posts every few months, and I’ve wanted to do one for our family for awhile now. Today was typical for us in a lot of ways, but we also had a lot going on, so I thought it was the perfect day to give it a go. This was our Wednesday…

Early morning crawling practice (still with bed-head…eek!)
Izzy has a horrible habit of carrying her food bowl from the bedroom (where she is supposed to eat) into the living room. 

And more often than not, THIS is the result.

Daddy stayed home from work today to recuperate, so he and G had some quality time with his zoo (both of their FAVORITE toy)

Never ending laundry (and a dog who loves it!)

Since we had the camera out, I had Ryan take a 15 week belly shot. Related: I am 15 weeks ALREADY?!? Also related: I’ve felt the baby move twice and both times startled me so much I yelped!

Mid-morning meds

Excersaucer + Veggie Tales= time for Mommy to fold laundry!

New Wheels! (Notice that within 30 seconds of being in his new chair, it is covered in drool. Sigh.

The bath chair is here- it’s a BEAST! I thought the rubber ducky it came with was a nice touch- and the handheld shower attachment.
Picked up meds

We had plans to meet a friend for lunch and guess who fell asleep as soon as we pulled in the parking lot???

Long story, but after a visiting with my friend while holding my sleeping baby (and not eating), 3 fast food drive-thrus later, Taco Bell ended up being my lunch in the car- bleh.

Back-to-school haircut while chewing on the arm of the chair- sweet Monica puts up with a lot when cutting G’s hair!

Picked up Hank at Waggin’ Tails- he had to hug Miss Katie goodbye before we left. 

Yucky part of our day: blood draw :(

He was very clear what he thought about THAT

My stellar eating habits of the day continued with our annual “Christmas in August” pizza dinner with Ryan’s family (his sister and her family live in Saudi Arabia and aren’t usually here for Christmas, so we celebrate in the summertime)

Grayson’s Summer Christmas loot- and yes, I am WAY excited about lots and lots of diapers!

“No more pictures, Mom…just let me SLEEP!”
