a day in the life, september edition.

Hour by hour iPhone photos coming at you of a day in our life. This particular day was our Friday....

6:45 a.m. David blessed us by sleeping in! Waking up after 5 am is a celebratory occasion. A quiet breakfast at my own pace? Rare. And greatly appreciated and enjoyed.

7:45 a.m. I alternate between running and doing the elliptical. I'm a slower runner this time around the pregnancy... so the elliptical has been my pal.

8:45 a.m. Beds are made. Hair is done. Teeth are brushed. Kids are dressed. We head out the door to drop Letty off at school. I always make sure to get my goodbye kiss. Even if she accidentally gets my eyeball.

9:45 a.m. David enjoys his Letty-free time with a little uninterrupted YouTube action. I read and we cuddle together on the couch. Every now and then he'll look up at me and go mama look! about something like a red train or whatever.

10:45 a.m. There has been some excavating work behind our house lately and it's David's favorite thing to do. Stare at the diggers and dumb frucks. And then stare some more. Point a few times. So on and so forth. 

11:45 a.m. After we have Letty safely back to us we head home for a super nutritious lunch of carbs and butter. 

12:45 p.m. It's a gorgeous day and I feel the urge to go somewhere and do something. So we ventured up to Middle Creek Wildlife Preserve. It was pretty but otherwise not what I was thinking. We came. We saw. We conquered. 

1:45 p.m. I liked the drive home too. I would like it better had the leaves been a slightly different shade.

2:45 p.m. David is napping and Letty is enjoying her own special kind of quiet time so I turn back to Jamie and Claire with my afternoon coffee. 

3:45 p.m. I dare not let David sleep long in the afternoon for fear of an early wake up time the next day. I hate waking him when he's so peaceful.... He's not a good waker. Oh the humanity!

4:45 p.m. We head to my parents for dinner and I promptly bogart my niece. Who wouldn't when she is just that cute and cuddly? 

5:45 p.m. More carbs. Carbs for all. 

6:45 p.m. The kids take their balls (bouncy balls of course) outside and run off steam while we watch the sun set. 

7:45 p.m. They have earned their tubby once and then some with all the dirt and grass they have encountered today. They both love their towel ponchos from Nonna. 

8:45 p.m. The kids are in bed by 8 and Matt and I turn on Shark Tank for a little. I play on my phone and he has wine. And it is our happy time. 

9:45 p.m. Because of the potential for an impending wake up call in the morning I turn to bed early. But not without a quick Jamie and Claire visit. Because I just can't help myself.
And there it is! A very exciting but oh so typical day in our life!
