a typically typical day

My friend Mary posted {awhile ago, I'm behind} her typical day and I liked it. And I thought I want to do that to. So here I go!

Here is my typical non-working day...

6:20 am- wake up call from my cute little alarm I like to call Izzie.
6:20-6:45 am- Play with Izzie and make my breakfast {instant breakfast and a slice of bread with peanut butter}
6:45am- feed Izzie and myself
7:00am- watch Good Morning America while Izzie plays for 30-45 minutes
7:45am- do the dishes while Izzie plays in the exersaucer. Continue until dishes are done or until Izzie whines or cries wayy too much. If I'm lucky I get to clean some of the kitchen too.
8:30-9am ish- Put Izzie down for a nap.
9-11am- Then I either nap, finish cleaning, blog, Facebook, watch tv, look up lesson plan ideas for PE the next week.
11am- Izzie gets up from her nap and eats lunch.
12pm- I eat lunch
12:30-2:30- play with Izzie, run errands
2:30pm- make Izzie a bottle
2:45-3pm- put Izzie down for second nap
3-5pm- figure out dinner, surf internet for recipes, craft
5pm- Izzie wakes up
5:30pm- make Izzie dinner/feed her
6pm- make dinner
7:00-7:30pm- Troy comes home, we eat dinner
7:30- family play time
8:00 pm- Put Izzie in jammies and feed her and rock her to sleep.
8:30-9pm Izzie {hopefully} is in her crib trying to fall asleep. Troy and I take turns going in to her room to rub her back, lay her back down and tell her it's bed time.
9pm- watch tv with Troy or more recently do some P90x. I only do P90x 3 times a week.
10:30pm- in bed falling asleep.

I'm exhausted just typing it out.

The End.

Isabel: 8 months

I'm a bit behind on blogging lately... forgive me. I just haven't been in the mood.

Dear Izzie,

I just have to say how much fun you've been lately. Your little personality has really begun to shine. You squeal, flap your lips {and spit all over us in the process}, give big slobbery kisses, laugh at us and yourself, bounce up and down, crawl and get in to ev-er-y-thing.

You get so excited when you see animals, especially dogs. You try to play with the big kids at grandma and grandpa's. Luckily you have mostly girl cousins so they love having a baby to play with. You love to look at yourself in the mirror and you give yourself big wet kisses. You absolutely love people too. You have even started giving big cheesy grins to strangers.

Some new things you started doing are: standing and army crawling {really well} we've tried to put you on your knees but you prefer to army crawl. You can pull yourself up in your crib and you try to stand up using just about everything. Your favorite toys aren't even toys. You love cells phones, remote controls, air vents, hair brushes and just about anything dangerous that a baby shouldn't get their hands on.

This month you went camping for the first time and you had a really great time. You slept surprisingly well during the night. Except your dad and I discovered that you are a bed hog. The only time you started crying at night was when one of us were in your way. You'd hit or kick us until we moved. You also started going to day care twice a week while I'm at work. You seem to enjoy it and your sitter Carmela adores you. She says you are such a good baby {and I couldn't agree more}. It's so hard to leave you though. I hope you know that! If I had it my way I would stay home with you all day. Unfortunately, we aren't in the position that we can do that. Lucky for us though it's only two days a week!

This month you got your first cold. You must have gotten it from day care because you got sick first and then your dad and I got sick with sore throats. It was so awful seeing you sick. You just moaned all day and night for two days. They were some exhausting days for all of us.

I am so glad that you are mine. I love you so much.

Love, Mom
