Routines

I am stuck in such a rut these days. We have our routine down to the minute almost, with some flexibility built in around the nap hour. Seriously, I'm boring. Today the girls surprised me by not waking up until 8 am. It was a very nice gift. I slept in and it was glorious. But, still we've been right on with our routine.

Here's how it goes lately:
Wake Up: Drink milk from a sippy and a handful of cheerios.
Play: Play in the toy room for an hour
Breakfast: Eat a yummy breakfast of Oatmeal, Eggs or Waffles with fruit
Open Play: Play all around the downstairs while mommy plays on the computer (and checks on us)
Mommy Time: Read books, play toys, crawl on mommy.
Snack: Eat a small snack with our Milk
Nap: Hopefully 2 hours, more likely 1 Hr 15 min
Lunch: Varies greatly, Meat, Fruit, Cheese, Grain
Play: Open play, playroom or Mommy time
Second Nap: occasionally
Snack: Graham crackers with cream cheese, tortilla with hummus, or fruit
Daddy comes home: Play with him while Mommy prepares dinner
Dinner: Either what Mommy and Daddy are having or something similar
Kitchen Play: While Mommy cleans the kitchen and we destroy it
Bath: Every other night
Nurse
Night-Night

Rinse and Repeat.

I seriously need to shake things up. Today after nap we plan on going grocery shopping. That's always fun. And this afternoon since the weather is a bit warmer we'll go on a walk. I really do have a lot of fun with the girls. It's amazing to see how much they do in a day. And from day to day how much they are growing. Izzie is taking more and more steps each day. It won't be long before she is running!
