A Day in the Life of Levi: 19 Months

7 am: Levi wakes up as I am doing my quiet time reading in the chronological niv bible.
7:15am I fix Azul's food, start load of cloth diapers, text Matt about dinner, get Azul up and let him outside.
7:30am Get Levi up (I never get him up before 7:30a, he usually just plays until I get him up. Most days he sleeps til 7:30 anyways) Change his diaper, Fix him bfast (Whole Wheat Blueberry Waffle, blueberries, and s few reese's puffs) Levi calls waffles (wawulls) =) As I fix bfast, Levi busies himself filling up cups with ice and gives Azul his treat (he LOVES to do this). We sit down for breakfast together and watch The Cat in the Hat.

7:47am Matt confirms through txt that he wants Italian Meatloaf for dinner, I set out ground turkey to thaw.
7:57am While Levi finishes bfast, I unload the dishwasher and refill sippy cups. Clean Levi up from bfast

12:20 head upstairs, change L's diaper, Levi has "room time" (we have started letting levi play in his room for about 15 min with a gate up. I think it is good for him to have solo play) unfortunately, he screams so we have stopped "room time" for now.

9:00pm Lights out for Matt, I read til about 10pm. Storms come through and I am up at 12:30-1:15a waiting for the sirens to stop. Fall back asleep.
That is quite a day, huh? I am so blessed to be able to spend my days at home with my favorite little guy. Thankful to the Lord who makes it all possible and for a hard working husband who would do anything to keep me at home with Levi!

  1. I forget how much work goes into a day with a toddler. I guess that's one of the reasons that makes being a Grand mother special. I love you.
