As this pregnancy comes to the end, I feel like I should post another typical day in the life with the Toddler. I know that this is the last month that he will be my one and only child and that our day to day schedule is about to change drastically- which is scary and exciting…..
1PM: The Toddler gets up- I change him- attempt to put clothes away for Baby Girl, The Toddler and myself- BUT today instead of jamming out on the guitar, playing with his trucks, or reorganizing the toys in Little Sister’s room he grabs my hand and tells me we need to go play downstairs… Because we are both so cranky- and tired- and hungry- I relent.
1:30-2PM: I serve lunch for both of us in the dining room.
2-3:45PM: Trains Galore- The Toddler plays independently with his Little People, reads more books aloud to himself and is otherwise entertained as I work on house projects and my never-ending to-do list.
4PM: We both need a break- the white flag is hoisted up and we sit down, cuddle and watch an episode of our beloved Scooby Doo(thanks Aunt Rachel) as we anxiously await The Husband’s arrival home.
4:30PM: Husband s home. The bells chime- people rejoice and all is right in the world again.
5PM: Family dinner around the dining room table. The Toddler and Husband talk about their days… One sounds like gibberish-bet you can guess who. Reminds me of Squirt the Turtle from Finding Nemo- “I know you’re trying to talk to me but I can’t understand a word your saying,” adorable. Do you have your exit buddy?
Wake-up 4-7 times-and start it all over again at 5AM. Sleep regressions come in phases for The Toddler- and I know that it will be better soon. Hopefully in time for when Baby Girl makes her arrival.

Our Baby Girl certainly is blessed to have such lovely women in her life already! My dear friends hosted a Sprinkle last weekend and I enjoyed every single moment with them!
The invitations were ADORABLE- and had little “sprinkles” that fell out when you opened up the card : ).
A couple of days before the event I received a package and low and behold there was a note with this BEAUTIFUL(and comfy-so key right now) dress- seriously… how can I be so lucky?!? My friends really do know how to pamper!
Our Little One is going to be one well-dressed lady! She has an amazing array of outfits for me to choose from!!! Even those out of town sent packages to Aunt Tina for our Baby Girl. One lucky little lady!
During the Sprinkle there was even a small craft session where they finished up a project they were working on…. In the background you can see the champagne flutes that held a signature drink-complete with purple straws(my favorite color), melt in your mouth cupcakes with decorated plates and more adorable baby decorations!
VOILA! This my dear readers can not be found on Pinterest-this creation was thought up by my dear friend Becca- here she is holding her masterpiece! It is hanging in our Little One’s nursery as we speak. I may or may not have cried a couple of times so far as I walk into her room when I see that hanging in the corner- all of Little One’s “Aunts” are quite thoughtful and special.
To my dear friends,
Thank you so much for being there for me! I am so glad that we all met Freshman year of college. You mean more to our family and I than you know. My children are lucky to have a couple of extra “Aunts” around to look up to.
