Blake wakes up, and finally comes out of his room. Then I take him in and we brush his teeth, change his diaper, and get dressed for the day. We then go to the kitchen and get a glass of milk and discover what he wants to have for breakfast, or I just give him something if he can't make up his mind. Typically he eats breakfast while watching Little Einsteins so I can change and feed Colby.
Depending on when Colby is done either Blake watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or we go on with our next step of the day... our walk around the block. This means I get both boys loaded into the
When we get back, about 30 min later, Abby runs crazy mad around the living room, Blake runs off to the master bedroom and I've got to get Colby, the drink, and the snack out of the carriage. Then Colby and I go to find Blake, who is usually up on my bed playing with the telephone or a flashlight or something else off Richard's nightstand. Typically he has already turned the radio on and has altered the radio station and the volume too. If he isn't on the bed, then he is either hiding in Richard's closet or the "toilet room" or in the shower or... who knows where.
I then have to convince Blake to go into the living room again so I can again feed and change Colby. I usually put the tv back on for Blake, this time it usually is on Nickelodeon. Blake usually plays with his cars or tools or something else while he watches his shows. After Colby eats, he gets to play on his playmat or in his jumparoo. This gives me time to make Blake a snack, switch loads of laundry, clean the kitchen, and do whatever else needs my attention at the time.
Colby often is ready for his nap around 10:30. At this time Blake and I spend sometime together either playing, watching Dora the Explorer, baking, coloring, running around outside, whatever he is in the mood to do at the time.
Blake typically gets ready for his nap at 11:00. It's more like 11:15 by the time I get him in his room, change his diaper and read 1, 2, or 3 books.
I now have a bit of time to do something, but usually not long because Colby will be waking soon to eat again.
What happens from here... who knows. Things change from day to day. Oh well... at least part of the day is starting to get some sort of routine to it. Now if I could just figure out when Colby really wants to sleep, and convince him that 2 hours is plenty of time between feedings (lately he's been eating every hour and a half... yeah not fun). Then maybe, just maybe I'll know what is going on from one minute to the next!
