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.
Parker woke and had 4oz and a nappy change.
Me and Parker went back to sleep. He's normally up around 30-40 minutes for his first feed.
Parker had 2oz
We went back to sleep again
No idea why he woke up again so soon, he doesn't normally. He had 1oz
Went back to sleep again
Yes he woke up again and had 1oz
We went back to sleep again
Parker woke up again. Mark took him downstairs so I could sleep a little.
My alarm went off so I woke up and showered
Me having a shower normally wakes Paige up. I got dressed and we both went down stairs
Paige had some milk, I made a cuppa, Mark went to get ready for work, I cleaned kitchen a little
Parker woke up, Paige watching TV/playing while I drink. Normally get on twitter/instagram that sort of thing
