Routine (14 Months)

7:30- Wake up! Diaper change, nursing, playing in the bedroom for a few minutes while Mommy gets ready to go downstairs.

8:30- Breakfast: usually some type of bread and cheese, often times a little fruit as well.

9:30- 12:00- Morning activities: playing in the play area (with blocks, stacking rings, shape sorter, hammering pegs, puzzles- kind of, reading books), and/or doing errands, and/or going on a 5K walk or to the park, and/or meeting up with other mommies and babies.

Baby Boy got really great at using the hammer the past month

12:30- Lunch: main meal of the day, protein (fish, chicken, beans, garbanzos, lentils) + carb (pasta, rice, potatoes, tortilla) + veggie + (sometimes) fruit. You eat really well!

Baby Boy likes to feed himself so we're using suction bowls now, cuteness

13:30-15:00- Nursing + Nap time! Hallelujah!

15:30- 16:30- Play around the house and get ready for a walk outdoors. Often times involves roaming and playing with balls (we have a soccer player in training).

16:30- 17:45- Walk + park. Unless it's going to rain, we take a walk down the trail, occasionally do some small errands, and then stop at a park on the way home for play time (or just watching the older kids and dogs playing). Very important to note, that we cannot leave without snacks in the snack cup! Favorites include: cheerios or puffs, dehydrated fruit, cheese cubes.
The kiddo loves having a cap on, and sticking his thumb in his mouth for pictures

17:45- Dinner: very often includes oatmeal, yogurt, blueberries, some other veggies/fruit depending on what he already had during the day. After dinner we usually take about 15+ minutes to run around and burn that energy. Lots of ball kicking to get us nice and tired.

18:45- Bath: this is Daddy's domain. Baby Boy goes on the potty, then has a bath, then teeth brushing, tickle time, diaper and pajamas. Baby Boy especially loves when we leave the water running for him.

19:30-Mommy comes in for a final nursing, a chat about our day and the one to come, and into the bed. Good night, sweet dreams, Mommy loves you and we'll see each other tomorrow! (The mantra that started as wishful thinking has mostly become reality).

  1. This looks SO close to our day at 16 months! We get about a 6am wake up call but trade it for a 2.5ish hour nap....but very similar! :)
