I figured I'd just get it out of the way and do it that next day...so I did. Had I known how the day was going to go (not a "typical" day at all, yes there is such a thing), I would have picked a different day. Not necessarily because I have a need to show you all how well every single day goes around here (ha!), but because about 2/3 of the way through the day, I was really sick of being attached to my phone to record all of it. But, I wasn't about to quit 2/3 through and start over a different day, so this is what you get! To give Myra some credit, I can actually say I have an awesome sleeper. She takes two 1-hour naps every day (occasionally skimps on the morning nap, I guess) and sleeps 7pm-7am (or later) without waking up. Those of you who know me well know we ALL earned this after how awful the first 4 months were. Those of you who have FPIES kids can probably imagine. So, although yesterday did not go like that, it does every other day and I am loving it. But, life is life and things happen and yesterday was one of those wonky days, and we survived.
Anyway, our day went a little something like this...
7:15 I woke up, Trevor was already up and had eaten, showered, and was starting his coffee
7:50 Myra up, playing in her crib (I leave her alone for a bit in the morning to give her some alone time. She usually talks to her doll or the pictures on the walls.)
8:03 Now Myra is whining, Trevor got her quickly before leaving-she was stuck in the crib rails.
8:05 Time for a diaper change, bottle, play on the couch for a little bit. I turned up the heat because it's COLD.
8:30 We eat (me-coffee and Coco Roos, Myra-canned peaches and freeze dried peaches) We can hear the birds chirping outside and Myra keeps saying "oo oo! oo oo!" It's her default animal sound that started as her version of woof woof but now it means everything an animal could say. Except "who" which she knows is an owl and "baa" which she knows is a sheep.
8:52 Both done eating. I get Myra dressed-I leave her in pajamas for breakfast because she is a messy gal. While changing her, she says "baby" (she is madly in love with her doll), "people" (when she looks at the people int he pictures on her walls), and "down" (the most recent addition to her vocabulary).
All done! (signing it and says "aahhh")
8:58 Myra plays upstairs. She would rather play with my dirty socks than her actual toys. Rowdy is up there with us, she tries to give him my dirty socks. Myra sneezed then said "sneeze" (or "tee!") and signed it. She also says "Rowdy" frequently ("Row-wee") whenever he is around or she hears him.
Homemade toy - cut a hole in the top of her formula can, she puts stuff (craft poms mostly) in the hole. Lately she has just been walking/scooting around the house with the thing hanging off her hand though.
Playing with a turkey baster and her reflection.
9:25 I grab Myra to put her down for a nap so I can shower. Since she slept so late, she probably isn't going to fall asleep yet, but it's worth a try since we have to leave in less than an hour for the clinic. Realize she has a "poo poo" diaper (Myra's words) so I change that. She signs "I love you" to me a couple times and says "bye bye" when I pull up her pants. I remind her we aren't going anywhere yet, it's time for a nap now.
I love our Dropcam. Certainly not a need, but it's been helpful in letting her fuss for a bit (until she finds her baby) or knowing if she really needs us (stuck in the crib!).
9:59 I am showered and dressed, take a pre makeup selfie. Myra's nap no-go like I thought, but she's content just playing in her crib. I brush my teeth, get Myra, pack my binder (Myra's food info), snacks, waters for both of us, and a bottle. When I get to the garage I realize Trevor was kind enough to leave all his stuff from drill this past weekend in front of my car, so I move that then load up. Myra has a stuffed bear that stays in the car and she asks for it every time I buckle her in.
