Week in the Life 2014 – Sunday

Weee! We made it.


Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

I woke up downstairs in Eli’s room – at 7am “new daylight savings time”, fed Abby and went back to sleep in the spare room for a bit.. I woke up with a pounding headache from wearing my monkey headband for too long (mixed with some sleepiness) and I took a short nap upstairs until I could hear Abby calling for me. My parents left while I was asleep.

Today was fairly uneventful, and most of my photos of today are of different angles of Abby sleeping in my arms. We had too much screen time and ate too much Halloween candy. Abby was attached to me all day long and didn’t let me put her down – which is unlike her. She must be going through a growth spurt. I was trying to parent Eli from the nursing chair as best I could, but I had no energy. Rob relaxed downstairs much of the day.

I managed to get Abby to go to Rob so that I could take a shower but Eli found me – and stuck around after I was finished. He then decided to turn himself into a tiger with a washable brown marker he found on our bedroom floor (he must have stashed it there earlier!). I didn’t even care.

Rob and Eli made us some yummy (Jamie Oliver inspired) mac & cheese with bacon while I fed Abby. Rob gave Eli a bath as I put Abby down to sleep, then we put Eli to sleep together. Rob stayed sleeping and I came downstairs to read a bit and scour etsy for Christmas present ideas.

All in all, a very uneventful Sunday to finish off the documenting that is a Week in the Life. I am looking forward to seeing everyone’s finished products.
