A Day In the Life of Malachi

So what does an average day in the life of Malachi look like?

Well, I am about to show you. Sure there are the special days where we go out and do fun things or have doctor appointments (not so fun), but for 3 or 4 days a week this is what life looks like. I really don't mind sticking around the house and I now realize that in some aspects we are still sticking in the cocoon quite a bit which isn't really a bad thing for him right now, especially as his life is about to go through another big change here in a few weeks.

A day in Malachi's life:

9:45 - Time to wake up! (yes, I know how very lucky I am to have such an incredible sleeper!) It is a wonderful thing to be greeted by this precious face every morning!

Time for a diaper change

10:00 - Time to eat some puffs and chat with mom while she makes breakfast!

Finally breakfast is ready! On the menu today: Warm oatmeal and some pineapple/pear babyfood

10:20 - Done with breakfast and time for a bottle while mommy cleans up the kitchen.

10:30 off to the races! Playtime! He loves looking out the window....

And playing right in the middle of all his toys. He also LOVES hamming it up when mommy pulls the camera out!

12:45 - Time for a nap, but first another bottle and diaper change.

3:30 - Up from nap and time to get dressed (although on really cold days we stay in jammies). Time for diaper change, lotion, and clothes!

3:45 - Time for lunch. Today we share leftover meatloaf, mashed potatoes, squash, and yogurt!

After lunch, time for another diaper change. Malachi thinks his yucky diaper is funny - such a boy!

4:00 - More playtime!

5:00 - Daddy gets home and as soon as Malachi hears the keys in the front door he goes nuts and crawls to the gate as fast as he can and leeches onto daddy's legs with all his might. (It melts my heart every day. He loves his daddy!)

6:00 - Time for dinner. Tonight he had a big dinner of the last of the mashed potatoes, Spaghettio's, and applesauce. Malachi LOVES noodles!

6:30 - Time for more playtime and trouble!

7:30 - Bath time, which just might be Malachi's favorite time of the day!

7:50 - Time for lotion, hair product, and jammies accompanied by lots of eye rubs.

8:00 - Another day comes to an end when Daddy feeds him a bottle and rocks him! Night Night Sweet Boy!!!
