a day in the life of…
10:30 a.m. May wakes up and ready for the day, bright eyes and all smiles. Me = groggy from 4 hours of composite sleep in spite of lying there next to May from 8:30pm the night before until 10:30 a.m. when she woke up.
11:15 a.m. May yawns, put her into the Amby and swinging her to sleep
11:45 am. Falls asleep in the Amby
12:35 pm May wakes up from her first nap. Nurse.
1pm Take May to the weekly farmer’s market so she can people-watch
2pm Return home
3:00pm nurse in bed to attempt nap #2
3:30pm She’s not having it. Still awake but is getting more and more tired
3:50pm Finally falls asleep in the Moby
5:00pm Wakes up in the Moby but I shove her head back into the folds – oh no you don’t!
5:02pm goes back to sleep in Moby
6:00pm wakes up for the 2nd time, but I dance the dance of “you shall not wake up!”
6:01pm goes back to sleep in Mob
6:50pm May slowly wakes up
7:05pm May is now fully awake, take her out of Moby but carry her around the room a bit to show her various things
7:20pm Take May out for a brief walk
7:30pm Attempt to nurse again
7:45pm hand May off to Son for some floor time
8:15pm May has had it with this tummy time business, cries.
8:20pm Bath time. She’s having a blast.
8:30pm Cries angrily as soon as she realizes that she is no longer in the bathtub and clothes are being put on her. Budding nudist I guess.
8:50pm Nurse to sleep
10:00pm done with nursing, can’t sleep, cries
10:18pm hands in mouth, babbling
10:25pm Son picks her up, she’s happy
10:30pm cries, no longer happy being picked up
10:35pm back on bed, crying
10:37pm hands in mouth, babbling
(….) you get the idea
11ish: finally settles down to nurse to sleep
3am fusses for boob
3am-7am: sleeps with boob in mouth in conjunction with kicking, tossing, tugging, fussing.
7am; wakes up after pooping. I hand her off to Son who rubs her tummy to ease gas, rocks and sings to her on the rocker…
8am: take her back from Son thinking that she might be ready for nap again. Nope, she’s not having it.
8:30am: finally she is ready to sleep. Nurse her to sleep
9:00am – 11:10am: sleeps with boob in mouth.
11:15am: wakes up all smiling and bright eyes, ready for the day.
