Day in the Life | First Edition

I’ve never done a “day in the life” before, but I always love reading other blogger’s day in the life posts! I think it really gives a chance to show a peek into ‘real life’ – and it’s not all glamorous like one might assume based on perfectly curated Instagram posts. 🙂 This day in the life is actually from this past Friday – so without further ado, here we go!

7:15 am 

I’ve made it my mission to start waking up before the girls do to have a little quiet time. Some days it doesn’t work out if Blakely wakes up early for some reason, but most of the time, it allows me time to enjoy a cup of coffee, watch the Today Show and mentally prep for the day’s plans. I need this time and it really makes all the difference in getting my day started on the right foot!

8:00-8:15 am 

Both of the girls wake up like clockwork. Well, Blair was probably already awake, but her OK to Wake! clock goes off at this time every morning. We make a quick trip to the potty and then she demands breakfast (always an applesauce pouch and a yogurt). After I get her breakfast, I get Blakely out of her crib and change her diaper and dress her. Then, I make her a yogurt (using this refillable pouch – love these!). By this time, Blair is done with her breakfast and she starts getting dressed. Her newest thing is picking out her own outfits, but I have to redirect her a few times since she tried to wear a short-sleeve shirt and it’s only 40 degrees outside!

Potty Training | How to Make It Work For You and Your Child

As I mentioned on Instagram last week, we decided to go all in with potty training Blair starting this past weekend. As it turns out, we picked a good time, since we’ve had two snowfalls that have led us to snow day number SIX so far. I don’t love being cooped up at home and that’s honestly what I dreaded most about potty training (well, mainly) but with the snow, I would have been stuck inside either way – so it worked out!

Christmas 2017 | R E C A P

I hope y’all had a wonderful Christmas – I can’t believe it’s already coming to a close! There’s something about the holiday season – I feel like it never sticks around long enough, but I guess it wouldn’t be as special if it lasted too long!

Despite the craziness that was December around here (broken ankles, huge water leak in our living room, all of us being sick basically the entire month), we still managed to have a beautiful Christmas as a family. I spent a lot of time this year trying to make the holidays as magical as possible for the girls, so we did an activity every single day leading up to Christmas…and it ended up being so much fun! We found every reason possible to make a quick trip out just so we could look at more Christmas lights – everyone around us was so festive this year, which was awesome. We put Christmas lights in basically every room of our house, too, and I’m not quite ready to part with the soft glow every night. All in all, it was a wonderful month and despite how sad I am to see it go, I’m also ready for a fresh start, a blank slate and a big year ahead.

I wanted to share few pictures from our Christmas while it was still on my mind 🙂Christmas 2017 Recap
