8:55am: Walk in the house, put my lunch away, greet MB and Baby, chat about what Baby has done since he woke up.
9:00am: MB goes to work in her home office after hugging and kissing Baby. Baby looks a bit sad when she leaves, but is quickly happy to play with me.
9-9:30am: Floor time. Baby can roll all around and can scoot backwards quite well. Still working on forward crawling. I encourage him to reach for things.
9:30-9:45am: I put him in the jumper. He loves that! I sit in front of him and smile and say "jump jump jump yay!"
9:45-10am: Song time. I put him in his chair and sing to him. He loves the ones with fingerplays best. He will smile and make noise and grab my fingers.
10am: Time for a nap. I change his diaper, put him in his crib, put on his white noise, read him one little book, then a hug and kiss.
10-11am: While he naps I watch "Supernanny" (love that show!) and have a snack. I check my email and texts. Do my homework if I have some. Write in his log.
About 11am: Baby wakes up. I go and get him out of the crib, check his diaper, take off his sleepsack. He grabs my face happily and makes noises.
11:30am: Baby is hungry so I take him to his mom for feeding. I sometimes need to take the dog out during this time. Otherwise I just chill and wait in the playroom.
11:45am: Mom delivers him back for solid food time. Sometimes she sticks around for a little nice chat while I feed him.
12pm: Clean baby up and change his diaper.
12pm-12:15pm: Baby digests and relaxes in his chair with stuff in front of it. He loves the pig best. He will giggle when I make it oink.
12:15pm-12:25pm: Story time. He is quite good at sitting now, and I sit behind him and put books in front of him and read them. Sometimes he just wants to eat them.
12:25pm-12:55pm: More floor time. We have a great giggly fun time. He is a very happy baby.
Around 1pm, time for another nap. Same routine.
1-2pm: While he naps I eat my lunch, relax, chat with mom some when she comes out of her office.
2pm: Baby wakes up. I go and get him and we go outside and sit on the deck for a few minutes. He loves being outside.
2:05pm: When we get back inside, Baby is hungry, so I deliver him to Mom.
2:05pm-2:15pm: Might have to take the dog out. Otherwise check email and such.
2:15pm: Mom delivers him back to me. We talk about Baby's progress in Floor time.
2:15-3:55pm: Same things as the morning. He is a wonderful baby.
3:55-4:05pm: He is hungry again, so I deliver him to her, she feeds him and he gets sleepy, so she puts him down for his nap.
4:05pm-4:45pm: He naps, I do some more homework, have a snack.
4:45pm: Baby wakes up. I go and get him, change his diaper one more time, and take the whole diaper bin and empty it.
4:45-5pm: One more song and cuddle time.
5:05pm: Mom is done with work, I greet Dad if he is home by then, and then I go home.
