If anyone has
Grace--I'm so glad to hear that James is unfazed by the baby!
Alyssa--Glad to hear that things are going good at home with Evan--I know you were worried about it.
What are people's daily routines?
James seems to take naps at 10ish,
1:30ish, and 4ish.
I know right. I don't think it would have happened, she would have had to clear it with the owner first and she would have told them no. I am going to email the owner and see how Gabby is doing with her milk today. and I know what you mean about even a baby on formula, if they give a different kind can't that screw up their system. I don't know much about formula, but I know that it can't be good. It makes me a little worried about when she turns 6 months and we start the solids thing as I will only be doing that at home for awhile and I don't want them giving her rice cereal and stuff.....Guess we will cross that bridge when we get there. hopefully it's not a problem.
We are up around 7 (YAY for her sleeping later recently!!), we have breakfast and then get dressed.
Wow. There are so many personals and I don't have time as I should be working today but I am not.
David is home with me today. The sitter is sick, she got food poisoning so I called one of my backups and she is watching David. So far he is doing OK but he hasn't napped yet. I have a feeling he will crash after I get off work. It is probably because his schedule is messed up, he's at home during the day and has a different person with him. But it is better than me having to take the day off work. Plus I can't take any time off until February as this is our busy time and we're not allowed to take any time off. Also I am saving my vacation time for our trip to Florida in April to see my in laws.
Other than that he is doing well. He is walking like crazy and hardly crawls anymore. He is into everytthing though. My aunt got him a gift card to babies/toys r us and I spent most of it on baby proofing supplies. Toliet lock, oven lock, refrigerator lock (even though we don't need it quite yet) cabinet straps so he doesn't have something fall on him and a few other things.
I promise to try and do personals either tonight or tomorrow it's just I need to get back to work now but I wanted to check in since I felt like I have been so bad at posting.

Adrienne- Having two has definitely changed thigns for us, we had a real
routine going on before David got here, and now things are very
different. Prior to baby we always went and did something in the
morning, came home for lunch, James would nap, and then we would
play/clean/whatever in the afternoon, eat dinner, bed time, repeat. I
have a lot of mom friends around and we do a lot of play dates and that
sort of thing. (met most of my mom friends at the hospital BFing group) I
think that soon we'll kind of get back into that schedule, but it's
been really cold here this week so I haven't wanted to take David out of
the house. Also, honestly leaving the house with both boys feels pretty intimidating to me. Yesterday I went to MOPS(mother's of preschoolers) at my church, it's only a 10 minute drive, but with the snow, it was pretty intimidating, I had to carry both kids to and from the car (at the same time, because you can't really leave one). Anyway, it worked out fine, but it definitely wasn't ideal, I reccommend having you're second baby in the summer when you don't have to worry about them/you slipping on the ice ;-)
What is your day like?
Currently our day goes like this: We all get up around 8:30. I change James and David and get them dressed. (this takes kind of a long time...) Then I go to the bathroom and get dressed. (more work then you would think, I can't leave both boys alone together so I usually bring them both in the bathroom with me, and set David on the newborn lounger thing in the bathroom, then while I get dressed I set him on the changing table where James can't reach him. David's not particualrly crazy about being set down, so this time can be a little touch and go. Once we're all dressed I put David in some sort of carrier (typically the ring sling), put James in his highchair, and fix James' breakfast. Once Jamesis set up with breakfast
