Now that Pen's almost 3-months, I have noticed some patterns emerging. I've created a little schedule for the two of us based on these patterns, and so far we've been able to stick to our schedule quite well. I would say we stick to this schedule about 70% of the time.
Brianna & Penelope's Schedule
8:00am: wake-up, diaper change, and feed in bed
8:30am - 9:15am: play on mat and listen to music, I usually grab breakfast and check my e-mails
9:15am - 10:00am: feed/storytime, and then diaper change and we both get dressed
10:00am - 10:30am: go for a walk outside
10:30am - 12:00pm: morning nap. I use this time for the bible, eating, tidying up, shower, and blogging.
12:00pm - 2:00pm: diaper change, feed, and play-time, I usually encourage independent play either on floor mat or in her swing.
2:00pm - 4:00pm: afternoon nap. I usually blog, read, eat, and rest.
4:00pm - 6:00pm: diaper change, feed, and play-time with daddy & nana, we usually have dinner too.
6:00pm - 9:30pm: relax and unwind...we read, nap, cuddle, and feed lots. Pen has a bath right before bed and has one final feed in bed before sleep.
