A Day in the Life of Elliott

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

7:00 – 8:00am Wake up. The timing on this is largely based on how loud Charlotte is in the morning and how full my diaper gets. Also, if I’ve smushed myself into the corner of the bassinet, I’ll get cranky when I start wakening up. After getting my clothes changed it’s time for breakfast! I’d probably eat 8 or more ounces, but since I’ll spit up anything over 6, it’s 6 ounces.

9:30 – 10:30am I’m so hungry! I’ve spent the last couple of hours hanging out in my swing or with some tummy time or (god forbid) in my car seat while mom runs errands. When I start fussing again and it’s clear that cuddles and a dry diaper are not going to cut it, it’s time to eat again. Depending on how long it’s been since breakfast, this could be anywhere from 2-6 ounces. Usually mom gives me 4 and I eat almost all of it. (more…)

And we did…Eventually. (more…)

A huge milestone has been reached at our house. Last night was the first night Charlotte slept in her “big girl bed“.

It was not without difficulties and very important lessons learned.
