Life Right Now

We've been home for about a month and a half and we're finally getting settled into our new routine. Before we brought Caysen home, I was working two days a week at an accounting office, but I've slowly been phasing out and I turned in my keys on Monday! I'm officially a full time SAHM and I am LOVING it :)

Are my days incredibly full and busy? Yes! Do I sometimes not sit down until after 8:00 at night? Yes! Is the budget a little tighter than it used to be? Yes, Yes, and Yes!!! But I wouldn't trade it for the world! So I don't forget, this is what a typical day looks like for us right now:

6:30 Lance gets up.

7:00-7:15 I hear Caysen's sweet voice on the monitor and go get him out of his crib.

7:15 I pack Lance's lunch and make him a latte/cappuccino/coffee while he snuggles and plays with Caysen.

7:25 Caysen and I both get a smooch from Lance, and he is off to work.

7:30-8:00 Caysen and I commence on a 30 minute snuggle fest :)

8:00 Time for breakfast for the sweet man!

8:15-8:30 Caysen hangs out in his swing letting his food settle, while I eat a quick breakfast.

8:30-10:00 Play time on the floor (I do pt with Caysen).

10:00-12:00 Nap time for Caysen. Cleaning, planning, organizing, showering time for me.

12:00 Lunch for Caysen. If we have plans to go anywhere, we head out as soon as Caysen has been fed and bathed.

If we're staying in:

12:15-12:30 More swing time to let the food settle.

12:30-3:00 I play with Caysen, and help him work on the areas where he's trying to catch up.

3:00-5:00 Nap time for Caysen. I do more cleaning, laundry, etc. and usually take a break in there too ;)

5:00-6:00 Playtime for Caysen while I work on dinner.

5:30-6:00 Lance gets home from work and he and Caysen have some boy time.

6:15 Dinner for Caysen.

6:30 Dinner for Lance and I while Caysen plays.

7:30 Lance and I take turns every other night, reading Caysen a story and putting him to bed.

8:00-8:30 I take care of dinner dishes and usually do a little laundry.

8:30-10:30 Lance and I both kick back and take it easy.

10:30 Bed time.

Yep, I know, this has been a really boring post...but it will be interesting to us when we look back on it later and see how our schedule has changed and evolved.
