DITL - Parker at 2 Months and Paige at 27 Months

I've wanted to do a day in the life kind of post since Parker was born but I just haven't got around to it. I'd love to do a video version one day but right now I'm not that confident plus my editing sucks.

So this was a not so typical day in the life for us. Parker at 2 months and Paige at 2 years. I say not so typical because Parker doesn't normally wake that many times during the night and we don't normally have a Sunday dinner on a Monday.

I've tried to break the day down into time sections just to make it a little easier to read.

1:30am
Parker woke and had 4oz and a nappy change.

2:10am
Me and Parker went back to sleep. He's normally up around 30-40 minutes for his first feed.

4:20am
Parker had 2oz

4:40am
We went back to sleep again

5:20am
No idea why he woke up again so soon, he doesn't normally. He had 1oz

5:40am
Went back to sleep again

    1. It really is. I think most o the time we just do thing automatically and don't really take in what we are actually doing. xx
