This week’s prompt for my Catch the Moment 356 photo group was a day in the life, Weekdays my life is dreadfully boring and not photographable, so on Sunday I grabbed my camera to document what life is like in Eisenbergia. Turns out it’s pretty boring on the weekends too!
The only quiet time I get all week is on Saturday and Sunday mornings when I get up before everybody else. I usualy use this time to plan projects, edit photos, write blog posts and drink coffee in peace. Today I’m planning a knit-a-long that I’m working up with some friends.
Time to get up kids! Friends, meet Edgar. Edgar, meet friends.
I love to go get Henny up while Josh is making breakfast, we can hear him cooking and we play “guess what’s Daddy’s making forbreakfast” Today Henry guessed waffles, and he was right.
Cop got prunes again. What can I say, he has tummy troubles, so he gets prunes a lot. A LOT. He is the grossest baby ever too, because as soon as he gets a bite, the two fingers go in his mouth to help keep the food in. It’s disgugting to watch, but really efficient.
Prune-y baby got hosed off in the sink. The mess reached ctitical mass, there comes a point when a washcloth just won’t do.
First nap time of the day. We do love to snuggle.
While brother naps Henry and I read books, play games. I try to ignore him and do my own thing, and succeed for a few minutes, but toddlers aren’t shy about asking for attention.
Brother wakes up and we play. You’ll notice we are using disposeable diapers with Cop these days. We are at a crossroads with cloth diapering. He grew out of the snapless minis he was in for so many months, and we assumed Hen would start using the potty and we could juut start using Henry’s diapers for Cop. Well… Henry is stubborn and shows no interest in potty learning. Add in Cop’s tummy troubles which can be… messy. You get it. I’ll spare you the details. So right now we are in a holding pattern. We have about a half dozen cloth diapers we use for cloth, and the rest of the time we are in disposeables. Henry is still in cloth.
After lunch we play, and at this point we are just watching the minutes tick by until nap time. Afternoon nap is sweet on days when we can get them to nap at the same time…
Josh get’s Hen down and I nurse Cop into his second nap…success!
Which means I have a couple of uninterrupted hours to measure a new warp for my loom. This picture is in black and white because it’s a surprise for my friend Bree who reads my blog, but doesn’t follow me on IG, so check out my IG for a sneak peak of this beauty.
After nap Cop and I got dressed to do a photo shoot to commemorate his 38 weeks in/38 weks out!
Dinner time! When we brought this highchair out of retirement for Copley, Henry, who for almost a year forgotten about it, decided that it was his cahir and by god he was going to sit in it at every opportunity. So yeah, our almost tree year old sits in his 8 month old brothers high chair. A lot. And we have to get him a highchair in restaurants now too, to avoid the epic toddler fit. But the joke’s on him, because I don’t care if he sits in a hgih chair, as long as he sits.
Bed time, sweet, merciful bedtime. Pile in “Mommy’s Bed” (actually, Mommy, Daddy and Copley’s bed) to read books, kisses and hugs, goodnight.
Finally the toots are asleep, and we are alone. Ty took me seat on the couch, again. Knitting, maybe a beer, and some TV.
It funny, I just realized I’m not babywearing in any of these pictures, though I wore for hours! Maybe not a completely thorough representation Then?
I’m doing a real time (ish) day in the life of my boring workday on Instagram today. How’s that for a teaser?
