It’s day two of my week-long project. Again, it’s tiring. Again, it’s wonderful. Wonderful to capture all these normal moments in our life.
There were no peeing tantrums this morning– yay! In fact, Big Roo was SO exhausted from yesterday that I had to wake him up at 7:15!
Today was totally different from yesterday in that I work on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. I’m a marketing director but have the luxury of working from home (trust me, I know how lucky I am but I do miss an office sometimes). I did a pretty good job documenting the day too. I wrote down times that things happened. And since part of our morning routine is watching Today Show while we’re getting ready, I jotted down the three lead stories (the new oil leak cap, how the girl who was kidnapped is doing and Mel Gibson’s tirade).
Here are today’s faves:
Little Roo is still sleeping downstairs in our room in the pack n play. This is the gorgeously happy face I wake up to in the morning. Squeeeee!
It’s a rarity in this house to actually have to wake up Big Roo in the morning. But that’s what I had to do today. As you can see, he sleeps with Burt the pink bear, Doggie (under his arm) and some fave cars.
After Daddy Roo took Noah to daycare, I got Little Roo to sleep. He’s home with me in the mornings on Tuesday and Thursday. I’ve only started doing this for a week now. It’s a way to save money and spend a little more time with the guy.
My work computer is set-up at the kitchen table. How’s THIS for multi-tasking?! I’m holding the baby, eating a snack (my turn for cottage cheese) and listening to a software demo. Bam yow!
Workplace #3. Unfortunately the little guy didn’t want to sleep this morning. Usually I get more time to work. He rolls all over the place so I have re-situate often.
On Tuesdays, I pick Big Roo up from daycare and Little Roo up from his afternoon at the baby sitter’s. He’s always excited to come home. Except today he and his friend ran towards the road when we got outside and I had to chase them. In doing so, he made me drop the camera on the concrete. I was uber-ticked off and took away his cars for the ride home. Fun stuff.
For some reason, this kid didn’t want to sleep tonight. About half an hour after bedtime, I came upstairs and he was playing with cars. Surprise surprise. He finally zonked out at 9:30ish. Baby was out before 8:00.
Why Jumperoos rock my baby’s world:
Instead of a Big Roo quote, how about let’s end the day with this little token of cuteness. (And yes I know I use their real names here!)
My notes about the process:
- I used my external flash today. Got WAY better indoor shots. I would marry that flash if I could.
- I got tons and tons of routine shots (way too many to post).
- At the beginning of the day, I didn’t think I was going to capture anything exciting. But I did (naner naner to me).
- I’m not going to get the morning routine EVERY DAY and the bedtime routine EVERY DAY. I’ll only capture the differences from day to day (like I need 7 pics of Big Roo brushing his teeth in the morning).
- Hoping we can get in an evening walk tomorrow.
Bring it, Wednesday!
