Just a Typical Day...

Well, after a string of difficult days, it seems that today we had a better time. Evs took good naps, which is always such a help. Our schedule has been fairly consistent recently: She has an early morning feeding around 7:00 or so, and then will go back to sleep until 10:00ish. Then we officially start the day (she's like me and NOT a morning person). After she eats around 10, she'll have awake time for an hour and then she naps for an hour and a half (nap durations always fluctuate). This cycle continues all day. Evenings used to be awful...she was just really fussy and we knew she was even OVER tired, but just fighting sleep. We focused on working with her on learning to fall asleep on her own, and we've really seen the benefit of that recently. Now I'll feed her around 9:30-10:00 pm, and then I put her in her crib, and she will fall asleep (after some fussing) on her own. Then she has been sleeping (knock on wood) all night until 7:00 am! I hope I didn't just jinx that...

We've been taking walks lately and that's also when I get errands done if I have any. Usually it's just drive-thru stuff (banking, run in the post office, etc.) and she's not out in a lot of stores, but I really enjoy just driving in the sunny weather with my Disney CD on. I've discovered a lot of lovely neighborhoods and usually that will buy me some more time with Evy napping during the drive (I plan outings during her nap time so hopefully she will sleep). That kind of sums up what our routine has been like lately.

Today Kurt went back on call at 3:00...even though I hate it when he has call, I like it better during the week because he's only gone for half the day and all night. On the weekend calls he's at work from 7 am-7 pm, and it feels like FOREVER. But tonight went smoothly and that makes a HUGE difference. I enjoyed watching some Duggar Family episodes that I keep taped and it made me crave Tater Tot casserole....so I made some for lunch, and Kurt took the leftovers to work for dinner. I love the Duggars :o) I also watched my old Disney Weddings DVD that I was/still am obsessed with. It's just a promotional DVD about their wedding services, but I love it. Fun fact: I seriously considered getting married at Disney World. But the main issue was our time table (read: Kurt's insane schedule), and I would only be able to have VERY few guests. That was actually somewhat appealing to me, but I wouldn't trade the way my wedding was for the world. Sometime I'm going to get Kurt to take me to Disney World again, just the two of us, and pretend it's a honeymoon. :o) I'm telling you, the Disney Wedding DVD is awesome.

I'm working on getting the house ready and crossing things off my to-do list before the next couple of weeks....crazy schedule ahead! I feel like I have so much to do but my motivation comes in little increments...which doesn't make for much productivity. Oh well. Tomorrow is another day.

And because no post is complete without pictures....here are some I took today. I ADORE this gown that some friends of my grandparents sent Evy. It's a taupe color, which I rarely see in baby gowns, with a beautiful pale pink monogram. Oh, and the face of the little person in the gown is quite adorable as well :o)

Where did ya'll go on your honeymoon and was it hard to get used to nights alone? I'm embarassed to admit it but I *still* have never spent a night by myself--Peyton did D-Now at church a few months ago (I helped but I was too tired and pregnant to have my own group) and I spent one night with my parents and the other night my best friend spend the night at our house, haha!

I'm glad yall have such a great routine established! I know how much those naps help -- we love nap time at our house! :o) That gown is beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen one that color. Although, it probably wouldn't be the most flattering color on my china doll (read: WHITE!! Haha) baby. Looks precious on Evy.
