Wyatt typically wakes up sometime between 5:30 and 6:30 to eat. This is our usual weekday schedule, so that is what he's used to doing. (Fortunately, on weekends he will usually go back to sleep after this). Today he doesn't wake until 7:30. We're having some nursing difficulties so I attempt to nurse then end up pumping into a bottle for him. After his bottle, he is wide awake so I change his diaper and take him downstairs for breakfast.
Today it is yogurt and I think banana, peach, granola something. His appetite hasn't been quite what it normally is so I trick him into eating as much as I can. Eventually I give in and put some puffs and yogurt melts on his tray. I think this child would probably walk over hot coals for some yogurt melts. Well, except he can't walk but you know what I mean!
I decide to tackle the pantry .... it is a mess!
30 minutes later, it looks like this!!! So nice and organized (although this picture doesn't really do it justice)
I finish up at TJ's about 2:45 but since Henri's is rightnextdoor I decide to stop for a petit four. (And a shortbread cookie too, if I'm honest)
I get back home at 3:15 and discover that Wyatt is STILL ASLEEP. I told you he didn't finish that morning nap!
He finally wakes up about 3:45 and I give him his bottle. I love that he is looking at the camera in this picture!
After his bottle, I play with him for a little while and then put Ben in charge so I can lay down for a few minutes. I'm tired!
We head out about 6:30. We pause for a quick family photo first! I can't believe how good it actually turned out -- it could use a little cropping but we are both happy with it!
I feed Wyatt quickly while we're having our appetizer and waiting for dinner. I've found that this is the best way to keep him entertained during an hour or hour and a half meal ... feed him while you're waiting and then we tend to not have a meltdown once our food arrives.
At about 7:45 he is just tired, over it, and wants to lay his little head on my shoulder and close his eyes. I am happy to oblige him. He's been good at dinner but its time for him to go home.
We get home about 8, get his PJ's on, give him a bottle and put him to bed for the night. Ben and I eat our dessert that we brought home from the restaurant (didn't have time to eat dessert there) and watch TV until we fall asleep on the couch. I love lazy Saturdays when we can do this!
