Unfortunately I'm spending more time with this pump than I'd like to! The good news is that my freezer stash is already pretty awesome!
By this time Adelyn is fed and Emerson is still sound asleep so I spend some time on the computer. I catch up on some blog posts and do some other random stuff.
Little miss is hungry again so it's time for a bottle of pumped milk.
8:00 AM:Emerson is up and dressed for the day. She heads straight over the swing to check on baby sister.
We have a little bit of TV time. I snuggle baby girl while my big girl lounges on the floor.
We successfully made it to the grocery store but just barely! Adelyn peed all over the place while I was changing her diaper and Emerson barely made it to the potty so both of them needed clothing changes (just undies for E, thank goodness!) I'm probably crazy for attempting grocery shopping on my first day alone but it went surprisingly well. Adelyn slept in the Boba the whole time and E was on her best behavior.
Time for my least favorite part of grocery shopping! I loathe carrying everything up the stairs and unloading it.
We're all fed and it's nap time for E. I get her tucked in with her doggy and she's ready to rest.
Emerson, Adelyn and I go on a walk. I'm still not cleared to exercise so I've been easing back into it by walking each day. The weather was gorgeous and the view can't be beat.
Jesse made it home so we all head to the playground. There are a bunch of bigger kids there and Emerson spends a lot of the time just watching them.
Someone is a bit fussy so I hold her while also trying to get dinner together. Luckily one of my MOPS friends brought us dinner on Sunday night and there was enough for leftovers. All I have to do is heat everything up! Yay for easy dinners!
Our big girl is freshly bathed and ready for bed. We bring Adelyn for some big sister cuddles before reading books and tucking her in.
After another feeding and pumping session, little miss is ready for bed and so is momma! Jesse and I hang out for a little while before heading up to bed. I'm pretty sure I fell asleep the minute by head hit the pillow.
I was pretty excited that we survived the day without any major catastrophes. Adelyn definitely had her fussy moments and it took me longer to get ready for the day than I expected it to, but overall it was a really good day. I know we will have to work all the kinks out and figure out a schedule that works for all of us but for now we are just going with the flow!
