This is the AM part of my day. There is a picture limit so there are going to be 2 posts. ETA- I ended up just posting the rest in a reply... and it worked. So there is no part 2. Can I edit titles?

8:35 am. Wake up.

8:40 am. Diaper Change

8:42 am. Our morning ritual. Time for his mobile!

8:42 am. In the pail.

8:46 am. Dumping my diapers in for a cold rinse.

8:47 am. Walking back up the 2 flights of stairs. Ewww, why didn't I wear shoes? The basement is dirty!

8:48 am. R-e-c-y-c-l-e, RECYCLE! Out of milk now.

8:50 am. Every morning I eat my breakfast in front of my laptop while Fletcher watches his mobile still.

9:02 am. Picking up where my husband insists on taking his clothes off!

9:13 am. Floor time!

9:15 am. Dad is up so I can go back down to add my detergent.

9:15 am. Next I add a squirt of Dawn. This is a super load, hot wash, cold rinse, extra rinse.

9:33 am. Weighing myself before my shower. Since I had Pops and was wearing a shirt my REAL weight is 115

9:36 am. Shower. He loves hearing the water.

9:56 am. He couldn't wait to eat, my makeup was half done. I need a feather in my turban!

10:15 am. Finishing my makeup. Mascara time. I look weird w/o glasses don't I?

10:23 am. Putting my lipstick on. I think I was playing with Fletcher between the eyes and lips.

10:29 am. Setting another hot wash, cold rinse, and extra cold rinse. More stairs...

10:39 am. Another change.

10:55 am. Heading out to go to a craft fair.

10:56 am. Netflix movie OUT.

11:01 am. Getting that green!

11:09 am. Strolling to Wellwood academy for the craft show.

11:21 am. Chatting with a scrapbook lady, he woke up and took it all in!

11:53 am. About to leave the fair, he wanted to stretch his legs and walk. I bought wooden napkin rings, a needle holder, and 2 tupperware ice cube trays for my milk!

Thanks Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy!

PM part of my day.

12:07 PM. Whooo, afternoon. Going to Joanns to sign up for a class.

12:33 PM. We need- Milk, OJ, bread. Fletcher and I wait.

12:39 PM. Still waiting, so I goof off with the camera.

1:01 PM. Another change!

1:04 PM. Putting out clothes down the chute.

1:04 PM. Steven made lunch. YUMM

1:12 PM. He jumped and we ate.

1:20 PM. At the end of the chute. WEEEEEEE I wanna ride.

1:22 PM. Diapers in the dryer.

1:24 PM. Our clothes in washer.


1:28 PM. Mail is here! we got an 8x10 we printed

2:06 PM. Walking time. This was his first time in this stroller, he hates being in the car seat awake.

2:09 PM. Taking some pics at a gazebo near the house.

2:22 PM. He is asleep after our short walk.

2:47 PM. After his nap it was time for another change.

2:53 PM. Fletcher watched his mobile while I got some time to work on my x-stitch. I need to do 5 more marios and the floor before it is done...

3:14 PM. Time to put the clothes in the dryer.

3:15 PM. Adding Fletcher's clothes to the washer.

3:42 PM. Done Stuffing my Pocket diapers. They smell nice and clean!

4:20 PM. I nursed him and we took a break. I tried to nap but Reno 911 was on, very funny one too.

5:12 PM. We fold clothes and play with the Fletcher Man. I have the dryer on because he was crying. I had to hurry and get ready to meet Kristen (KMAC from Oct PR) after that.

7:26 PM. After I met her at her house we rode together to a Belly Dance Show. Here is one of the lovely dancers.

7:53 PM. The featured performers, Kassar. They were very good.

8:02 PM. A lovely young dancer. she is a pretty girl.

8:11 PM. Emerson and Kristen during intermission. A lady made her cry heh. She was so well behaved, she only cried during intermission. All of the dancers and audience members came to admire her. Her boyfriend was at home with Daddy, he is not as well behaved,

9:19 PM. Another performance of Kassar. This was the last of the night. There was some chit chatting after, then off to Kristen's to get my car and head home.

10:28 PM. HOME AT LAST, My little guy behaved. I brought McDonalds home, I ate mine in the car since I was starving. I took Fletcher, nursed him, and put him to bed, Then bed for me.

That was my day. Thanks for looking. I know I took a ton of pics, there are even more that didn't make the cut.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy!

thanks guys! I had so much fun doing this I might do it every month and make them all into a photo book. It will be neat years down the road looking back at my laundry

and my diaper pail is a diaper dekor. I kinda hate it since there is only room for 2 days of diapers, but it does keep me on my toes laundry wise. I can use a wet bag with it also.

I hope to see some other people's soon! I want to see older baby laundry too, to see what I am in for next!

Thanks Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy!

Love the story and that you inputted pics of not just Fletcher but you as well.

I like that stroller. How does it do going over grass and such?

ETA - Is this a sign up thing or do we just go ahead and post? And yes, you can edit your title. Go to your first post and click the edit button. I've done it once since JM changed their look and I think you have to click on edit twice so it'll let you change the title and not just the message body.
