I thought I would give you a photo montage of our day today.
Sarah started off the morning by sleeping in until about 8am, which was awesome! She did wake up around 5am to eat, but she followed that up with going back to sleep for almost 3 more hours. It was nice to say the least :)
Our first activity this morning was playing in her jumper. She hasn’t quite got the idea that she can stand and jump while in it, but she does like to swing around in circles, which is pretty entertaining.
We then moved into the living room where she wanted to do a bunch of this…
that girl loves some fingers right now. She doesn’t care whose they are either, so beware if you are near our child anytime in the next few days!
I didn’t get a picture, but for the past few days Sarah has fallen asleep when I put the new Jesus Culture DVD on. We started with the Baby Einstein DVD that she got (thanks again JD!) I think all those bright pictures and calming music put her in the napping-mode and the live concert Jesus Culture DVD just pushed her right into dream world.
You know, before I had a child I said I wouldn’t let her watch TV until after she was 2, because that’s what is ‘recommended’ in all the fancy doctor books. Well turns out you don’t know squat until you have a kid. Sarah has enjoyed a few episodes of LOST and WINGS with me over the past few months. It’s honestly the only way she will let me sit down some days.
After her morning nap she watched me do the dishes and then we went on a walk.
Those are some sleeeeepy eyes if I’ve ever seen some. We love our new jogging stroller. I actually jogged with it today. It was a bit awkward not being able to use my arms since I was pushing, but I got the hang of it after a little bit. My goal was to run the length of the cow pasture and I did so, plus a little extra. Yes, I said cow pasture. We live in a small town and cows, goats, chickens, and horses are all seen on our walks. I’ve shared all the noises they make with Sarah and she gets a hoot out of it.
It was hot out today so after we got back from our walk I got Sarah cleaned up.
I actually did something new today. I got in the bath with Sarah. I’ve done it once before at my mom’s house (which sarah gave me a “present” during), but that was when she was just a few weeks old. Today’s bath was actually really fun and cute. Sarah loved it! It made it a lot easier not having to bend over the tub and lay her on her mat. She just sat and laid in my lap while I bathed her.
I recommend this method to all you mommies out there. It was so fun and easy.
After our bath I snapped a quick photo of Sarah in her hoodie towel to text to Stephen.
That was as much as she would cooperate. No eye contact, but just as cute as ever :)
Next up, clothes.
This is a 0-3 month outfit. I don’t know who does the sizes for baby clothes, but our 4 1/2 month old still fits in this perfectly!
We then moved into the kitchen so I could get a snack. That walk seriously made me hungry!
Sarah is SO great at hanging out in her bumbo chair while in the kitchen. I love that thing (thanks Kelley!!!)
I then sent Stephen this picture.
This was our conversation:
I guess the interest in chocolate milk removed any doubts he was having… haha
Now, I am sitting in the living room writing this post because our little girl decided to do this…
Nap #3 of the day. We’ve been busy!
Well there ya have it. Our Tuesday, so far. Stephen has a church meeting tonight so it’s just me and our girl for a few more hours, and then it’s daddy-sarah time.
After that little girl hits the hay I may watch the last 2 episodes of WINGS. Netflix Instant Streaming makes it SO easy to watch an entire series!
Alright, time to go get dinner started. We’re having turkey burgers :)
