Okay - here we go. Sunday through Thursday of this week I'm going to document our days. All of it. This will be SO mundane and boring for most of you but I will enjoy looking back to see how we spent our days when my girls were 2.5 and 3 months.
Sundays are crazy days. It's always a struggle to get us all dressed and out the door early. We have to leave for church a little before 9 most Sundays. Some weeks we help with baptisms and we have to leave around 8:15. This was a 9:00 day. My alarm clock went off at 7. I had it set for 6:30 but I went to bed late and Hollis got up a couple of times and I changed it in the middle of the night. I jumped up and quickly showered and got ready. I always know I'm on borrowed time.
Most days Harper is up between 6:30 and 7 but she has been sleeping more lately and she didn't get up until 8 today! So I was able to get ready, pack their church bags and clean up the kitchen before they got up.
While she ate - I fed Hollis and then got her dressed.
Church was so good. The music was great and we had a good sermon. Laurie and I helped in the nursery during
Sunday School. It was easy because there were only 4 babies and another lady was with us so we had a great morning. Hollis stayed with me and she did great. I even tried her in the exersauser for a few minutes and she seemed to like it. I guess I need to get ours down from the attic soon!
Then Hollis and I ran to Wal-Mart to get groceries. We were out of everything and I didn't want to wait until tonight. Scott was watching "Locked up abroad" episodes and stayed home with Harper. Of course we had to stop at happy hour at Sonic first because a vanilla diet coke makes grocery shopping better!
I came home and unloaded and put up the groceries and the MINUTE I was finished Harper woke up from her nap. She had some snuggle time with daddy while I fed Hollis.
I would say just as I expected that the most challenging thing with two has been trying to nurse Hollis and keep Harper controlled at the same time. It's hard! Thankfully Hollis is on a good schedule and I only have to manage this a few times a day - the other times Harper is asleep or Scott can help.
Tonight after the girls are in bed - I plan to finish some more laundry (does it ever end?), answer emails (I'm sorry that I'm so slow to answer if you have ever emailed me), and maybe just maybe sit down and watch a little TV. I usually go to bed around 11. I wish I could go earlier but there are just not enough hours in the day.
