Our Wednesday...

A pretty typical Wednesday for us.  Except the whole wake-up-at-5:30 thing... Ellis usually stays in bed till 6:30, but I guess he was just excited to get the day started early!

5:35 wake up, time to eat!!  we are both preeeettty tired, see? 

5:50 thank goodness he always goes back down for a couple of hours

9:40 after i got to go down for another few hours (almost 4, woohoo!) it's time to get up and ready

9:45 cause nobody likes to wake up hungry!

 9:50 while he nurses i check email and chat with Kami

 10:10 we have to get dressed!!!

10:20 he eats his bumbo/stares in the mirror while i put on makeup

10:40 we're off to playgroup!

10:45 we get to the park, which is awesome and green and shady!  hang out with friends, Ellis nurses and takes a nap while i get some social interaction!

12:15 of course i forget to take pictures of our little trip to the grocery store!  Ellis smiled in the cart the whole time!

 12:45 Ellis nurses again, then we hang out on the couch, playing with toys and watching 16 and pregnant, haha.

 1:10 time for a little swing time/naptime.  Ellis loves to watch himself in the mirror

1:20 Ellis is asleep, so I survey the damage in my room: pile of clothes for Salv Army (love that place)

Ellis' room- we have been trying to go through all the clothe's we have

re-organizing the dresser...

1:40 i realize i should eat before he wakes up, so here's to my first meal of the day (don't worry, i think i had a sierra mist at the grocery store...

 4:10, long naps make for a happy baby wake-up

4:15, after a diaper change and some foods, a good burp is always nice...

 4:17 more playtime with mr. owl, hanging out waiting for dad to come home...

5:10 he's home!!!

5:15 some people play while other people make dinner...



5:40 dinner time for the big people! pork chops with blueberry compote and couscous... i don't know, Rachel Ray told me to.


6:05 we are usually rushing to eat dinner before Mutual but somehow we have oodles of time left over today... so we play by the window!!





6:50 off to Mutual!  Damon is with the scouts while Ellis and I are with the young women, making friendship bracelets and cards!!! (of course, forgot camera)

 9:00 after getting home and nursing, now it's time for a bath!  but first we spent 10 minutes trying to make Ellis laugh.

 9:10 bath time is happy time!



 9:25 first a bottle (trying to get him used to it) and then nursing...



9:40 getting zippered in!

9:41 goodnight dude!

 9:55, time to help damon practice being a doctor.  We go through 2 (almost half hour each) mock checkups... 

 i only agree to such things if i can eat ice cream with the blackberry jam we got at the farmer's market

11:25 after pumping (ah, glamorous motherhood) and talking with Mandee on the phone (about possible upcoming trips!!!??!?) , it's finally bedtime!

There you have it, a typical day in the Demars home...

Cute post for sure. I LOVE 16 AND PREGNANT!!! Also, that picture of Ellis on the changing table and Damon playing with him, I was really hoping he got urinated on. I'm sure he didn't, but I'll pretend he did :)

It's so fun to see how my day compares to yours. I also love that Damon and Rob are both in scouts.

My favorite line, "some people play while other people make dinner..." Love it. Dinner looked delicious. It got me thinking of a new theme, "Rachael Ray." By the way, I'M HOME! Can we hang out?!

i see you too...
