Clara wakes up between around 7:30. She usually wakes up singing!
I change her diaper and then we go eat breakfast. Usually breakfast consists of a sliced banana, cheerios/toast/pancake and a big cup of milk. But if it's a bath day (every other day), I might let her at a bowl of oatmeal or whole wheat.
After breakfast, she happily hops in the tub. She plays with her ducks and foam letters and only protests mildly when I want to wash her hair and body.
When she's done playing by herself (anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes) we head to the living room for more playtime or go outside if it's nice. At least a few times a week, this is also our errand time. Anywhere from the grocery store to the library is an exciting adventure and she happily accompanies me as my favorite sidekick.
Between 12:30 and 1:00 it's time to get ready for her one and only nap. Quick diaper change, lay her in her crib and we're golden for 1.5-3 hours.
She wakes between 2:00 and 3:00 - happy and singing!
When we come inside, we read a few books and sing songs together before turning on some tunes for our afternoon dance party. Clara loves to dance and twirl.
Around 6:30, we put on Clara's pajamas (we call them jam jams) and let her pad around in them while watching for signs of sleepiness.
When the big eye rubs start to happen, we head to the bathroom to brush her teeth.
And then we go to her room to say prayers, have a hug and a kiss, a song (or several, depending on the night) and then go night night (usually by 7:00 or 7:30).
When daddy comes home late, late at night, sometimes Clara will wake up and start singing in her crib. And if she does, we take that as a sign that we need to go get her.
PS I started this post about three weeks ago, and I had to change so much of what I had written... the routine of a little kiddo is constantly evolving.
