a day in the life of Hux.

Hey there, sorry for the quietness on our Blog---it's been the exact opposite here in our home.
We've been so busy watching our little child grow & explore and holy heck is this kid strong! He literally does pull-ups on his Pack-n-Play.

It's ridiculously silly.

Anyways, here is a little look into our day to day. Each day is so different but the same all in one. You know the feeling?

6:30am- Hux pounces us awake with cute squeals & all smiles...he nurses & then goes in his Pack-n-Play for some Sprout TV & play time
7:25am- This is about the time we hear the "I've finished pooping & would like you to change me" 'cry''s not really a cry, more of a fuss.
7:45- After wrestling a diaper back on the babe we crawl back into bed for some snuggling
8am- Breakie time...I usually make a fresh puree of something like bananas, blueberries & avocado and mix it with some cereal..Hux chows & Mama has a little coffee (it's usually day old & cold..I know..gross, right? And I was a barista for like...3 years.)
9am- Daddy kisses Hux goodbye & bikes to work (Matt's put me to shame on getting back to shape...I'm completely envious.)
9:45- After a big breakfast & some more playtime Mama and Huxie crawl back in bed for a little am nursing & nap (most mornings I sneak away to get chores done, get a shower, make baby foods, do some emailing, etc)
11am- Huxley's awake & ready to play, nurse a little, and have some lunch
1pm- Naptime!
3pm- This is when Huxley is super playful & adventurous. We sing, dance, practice walking, read books, explore toys, & have a snack
5:30pm-It's a toss up around this time since I usually am going to work...Hux will either want a nap or dinner or visa versa
6:30- Hux has been fed and it's now his favorite time of the day...bathtime.
7:00- After the bath Huxley has a very particular routine...he gets oiled up with some Weleda Calendula Oil, diapered, jammied, & then snuggled with a boob or bottle
7:45- Hux is down for the night
8:00-10pm Mama & Daddy have dinner, do dishes, clean up the place, talk about our days while sitting on the porch, water our garden, pay bills, take out the trash, etc etc etc we do everything between 8pm & 10!
10pm- A creature stirs for a little visit from the Milk Truck Fairy & is back down
Between 1am & 3am Huxley makes his want into our bed for the rest of the night. I know there's a whole controversy on co-sleeping but Huxley sleeps so gosh darn good sandwiched between us in our humble little full sized bed--it feels far more natural having him by our sides than in another room. Eventually, I hope Hux will decide he likes his crib more, but until then we aren't going to traumatize the guy over the transition.

& that's pretty much our day! There is always a whole lot of laughing and giggling & drools and kissing too. We just adore our son.

Higher than the moon.

[he wakes up like this...alllll smiles.]

[playing with all of his friends.]

[food time is fun time.]

[he takes his baths very seriously...not!]
