2.5.13 – A Day in the Life of Laney

5 Feb

I thought it would be fun to do a “day in the life of Laney.” So Friday, I started taking pictures from the time she woke up. Halfway through the day I realized we had a babysitter coming over so Kyle and I could go out with some friends. So basically… most of the pics are from Friday, but the evening/bedtime routine pics are from Monday. You get the idea, right?

So, here we go!

8:00 AM – Good morning, beautiful! I normally get big smiles, but she was like, “Why the heck are you taking pics of my so early, Momma?”

Diaper change! Normally poopy…today was no exception. 🙂 I love how she holds her legs up for me like a good girl.


Breakfast time! (really second breakfast – I also fed her at 4:30 AM before my workout but didn’t think to take a pic of that one)


Play time! It is amazing how she advances every day/week on what she can do on her play mat.

Tummy time! (during a Valentine’s day photo shoot – more on that later) The photo shoot is not an every day occurrence…obviously!


Bumbo time! We have discovered a new game of throw all the toys on the floor so Momma can put them back on my tray.

Mom! Stop taking pics and pick up my toys!


9:30 AM – Nap time! We play our little giraffe music box while Momma rocks me. Then off to my crib I go!


Meanwhile…Mom is switching laundry, downloading pics, getting dressed, etc.

10:30 AM – Someone is peeking at me! We usually get dressed at this point.


Help Momma with the laundry. AKA – eat the clothes!


Lunch time!

12:00 PM – Nap time again! AKA lunch time for Momma!

1:15 PM – I caught someone snacking on her shirt!


More tummy time. 🙂

Mom… I would really rather be on my play mat.


Sometimes I hang out in my bouncy seat.

Sometimes we read stories.


And sometimes we run errands.

My favorite part of the day was when she snuggled up on my chest after her 2:15 PM afternoon snack. We talked and sang and rocked. Her teeth must have been bothering her or something, because she isn’t normally this snuggly during awake time. I didn’t get a picture, because I was afraid to ruin the moment.

2:45 PM Eventually she fell asleep, and I clipped those nails! Then I frantically tidied up the house before the sitter arrived.

3:45 PM Someone is up again! We repeat more of the same playtime…

5:15 PM Daddy’s home!

Hang with Dad while Mom gets dinner ready…they usually watch Pardon the Interruption (PTI).

6:00 PM – We eat dinner while Laney hangs out in her chair and entertains us with her chatting and noises.

Mom and Laney hang out while Dad cleans up dinner and makes his lunch.


7:00 PM – Laney and Dad play on our bed and get ready for little girl bath time!

Bath time! (trust us… she is adorable in the bath with her sweet little rolls and splashing water everywhere)

Mommy gets me all lotioned up and dressed for bed.


7:30 PM – Lights out! Bottle, book, and bedtime. Night night, Laney Bug!


There you go! Hope you enjoyed a peek into our typical day. They keep flying by, and we are loving every minute!
