1- 1 a.m. (ish) I am awoken by husband telling me to wake him up early and I realize that the baby has still not woken up to eat. I roll over and go back to sleep, glorious glorious sleep.
2- 5 a.m. I hear the baby on the monitor. The baby who went to bed at 8 was JUST waking up to eat and then proceeded to eat and go right back to sleep in her own crib.
3- 7:15 a.m. I hear the bathroom door close because Naomi had gotten up and used the potty all by herself without waking anyone up to let them know she would be going all by herself. I then notice that I had slept through my previously planned 6 a.m. workout wake time, meaning I dodged looking at this first thing in the morning. BUT I woke up with enough time to drink my coffee and read this gem of Jenny's before the minions emerged from their cage. Triple win.
4- 8:30 a.m. I get to "take a shower" (aka wash underarms in sink) and spend a solid 15 minutes straightening my dirty hair while one girl rested quietly in her bed and the other played happily in the play room and the littlest is STILL SLEEPING.
Who are these kids?!?!
5- 9 a.m. The best baby in all the land finally awakens with 17,000 smiles for me. I feed her and dress her.
6- 9:30 a.m. After baby is fed and dressed for the first time she does one of her "fountains of spit up" performances but manages to aim it directly down my shirt, missing any the shirt proper, only touching the un-showered skin and leaving all undergarments untouched as well, I do not know how she did it.
|hey now, you're an all-star|
7- 10:25- We venture out into arctic snow covered South Bend to meet a friend for a play date, where the girls devoured about 9 gluten free healthy cookies each and I learned that they will actually eat healthy things. The play date was not at all a fail and tons of fun.
I will stop there since this is quick takes and I am not permitted to go over 7 but also because I am sure you are alternating between sleep and excessive gagging from all my excessive boasting.
Just know that we have not had a morning go this swimmingly... ever, never ever. And I do not expect there will ever be another, so for now I will just marinate in it and wait for the land slide that I am sure will come this afternoon.
Now go visit Jen and all the better bloggers who I'm sure will not put you through anything like this.
