Attempted to track everything we did on 10/9/13
1:21am - Claire woke up and wanted to be nursed, I changed her and fed her for 9 minutes to start the block feeding for the day and then reswaddled her and back to bed I went.
5:03am - Claire woke up again for a meal, changed her and then fed her for about 9 minutes again, this time she was not as happy to go back to bed but once she was swaddled and I held for a little she dozed off. I went back to bed too.
7:04am- Claire was fussing from the other room, Ryan went to change her and bounced her around for a little while before he had to go to work.
7:28am - I got up for the day and nursed Claire for 13 minutes and she was a happy smiling lady.
7:42am - I put Claire in her swing and went in the other room to pump, got 3 ounces, labeled it and put it in the freezer. Then sanitized all the pump parts and went to get Claire.
7:50am - Claire and I hung out for a little while, caught up on some tv and looked at toys.
8:15am - Claire was relaxing in the bassinet watching Cupcake Wars so I jumped in the shower before having breakfast.
8:40am - Claire is sleeping so I got dressed and had two hard boiled eggs
8:54am - Claire is up so it was medicine time for the both of us. We both took our probiotic, our grapefruit seed extract and nystatin. Hoping this all kicks in and kills the thrush - saving the gentian violet for bed time.
9:06am - Claire was hungry so we switched to the other side for the next part of the block feeding and she ate for about 8 minutes.
9:29am - Decided to get my moby on before driving, I read about it on a blog and realized how much time that could save for us if I can just take her out of the car seat and put her in. Load up the laundry, Claire, and diaper bag into the car.
9:40am - Arrive at Long Beach Day Nursery, feeling a little sad but once I opened her door and her sweet little sleepy face made me happy again, I put her in the moby and she woke up a little bit and was not that happy about going into the day care. We went in, paid the deposit, chatted with the front desk girl and then left before I started to cry.
9:49am - Went on a lovely walk around the park, had not been around that park before and the pond was so sweet, thinking of Claire playing in this park with her little friends made my heart happy. I hope she loves it there while I am at work.
10:14am - Went back to the car and headed to Rockstar Tan, once we got there Claire was back to sleep and she got to visit with Lizanne while I did a load of laundry. Then off to Costco we went. At Costco Claire was aake and alert and we chatted while I picked up the baby wipes and frozen chicken sandwiches we needed. Once we got to the line to check out Claire had had it with our errands. She started to cry a little bit so I took her out of her car seat and just held her while we checked out and then walked to the car.
11:15am - She was calm again as we left Costco and went back to the salon to throw it all in the dryer, once there she came out of the car seat and was ready to play, she rolled around on her blanket and then it was time to eat for the both of us. I heated up a chicken sandwich and had some apple slices with it. She nursed for about 25 minutes but she was playing at the breast more than usual so I am not sure if she ate more than usual or not.
12:32pm - Time to head home, it was nice to catch up with Lizanne and Roni at the salon. I still have about a month before I have to go back so it was fun to see some customers while I was there too. Loaded up the laundry and my baby and it was time to get home.
1:06pm - Now I was hungry again and Claire was sleeping again haha she is the best little sleeper. I heated up my roasted broccoli and cauliflower and turned on my reality shows while rocking Claire in her bassinet.
1:52pm - Started to search Amazon for a new swaddle for bed time because she wiggles out of hers and it ends up around her face and that makes me uncomfortable so a sleep sack that holds her arms down is going to be our next option. Claire is still asleep so I put the laundry away, stripped the bed and got a new basket of laundry ready to go, did the dishes and got ready for a short nap.
2:13pm - Nope, no nap for mommy. Claire wanted to be bounced and played with which is ok with me. Today at the day care someone told me to enjoy holding her in the moby because soon she won't want that anymore :( another mom [Shar] told me that someone else told her the same thing - why lol why would you tell us new mommies this, of course we know that no reason to make us think about it haha.
Lost track of time until 4:30pm in that time we did tummy time, played on her play mat, put new sheets on the bed, finished the laundry, changed her diaper and gave her tummy a massage.
Lost track of time again haha days are much busier now with her being able to play and wanting to chat. I gave it a shot though :)
Here are the photos I took of her today, I had a wonderful time with her on her last day in her 1st month. She is just the sweetest and I am excited that we get to have her weighed on her two month birthday - hope she has put on some weight since last Friday.
Hope you have a wonderful day, squeeze your loved ones
