A "typical" Day with 2!

Gearing up for Jude is a little nerve wracking...
I felt the same way leading up to Luke...
I think it is the fear of the unknown...
How will Jude be?
Will he be easy going, needy, quiet, loud!?
Vincent was a dream baby, he was VERY easy going, and quiet.
Luke on the other hand has been my crazy one since he popped out,
He was very tough, loud, really needy, and a crab as a newborn....

It's funny because they are still the same...
Vincent is laid back as all get out...
And Luke is my crazy kid who doesn't slow down...

I have no idea what Jude will be like...
I am really hoping for a dream baby...
The one that loves to sleep...
{my boys were horrible sleepers until about 6 months}
Side note: I always see adorable pics of babes/toddlers passed out in random places
{during dinner in their high chair, mid playing, going for a walk}
My boys have never done that....I am semi jealous haha
I hope Jude loves naps and is a happy go lucky babe...
{knock on wood people!}

Right now this is a typical day in the life of us!
7:30-8:30sh Wake Up
8-30-9:30 Breakfast/Cartoon
9:30-11:30ish Play, Play, Play {toyroom, playdough, color}
11-11:30 FOOD!:)
12-2ish Luke naps {Vincent hangs with me, we like to cook/bake}
2-5ish PLAY
5-6ish Dinner 
6-7ish- More PLAY!
7:15-7:30 Prayers, Brush Teeth, Luke goes down
7:30-8 Vincent Rosary {cuddle time}
That is a typical day, a lot of the play times are filled with errands which I love...
I love getting the kids out of the house...
Jordans office is from home so a lot of the time Vincent and I will go when Luke is napping...
Cleaning and cooking is done while they are "playing" or when Luke is asleep.
Thankfully the weather will be getting better so we can get out and PLAY!
Blogging/Me time is after 8, which I have a feeling will become non existent for a couple months...
We are just going to go with the flow once Jude arrives...
He will fit in perfectly, it will just take some juggling!

It is so nice because Vincent and Luke {and Verner pup} play together amazingly...
Which is not something I had when Luke arrived...
I had to entertain Vincent and tend to Luke's every need...
Now I at least can send V&L off to play...
Or to just be adorable....
I am going in this 3 under 3 gig with no expectations...
I feel like whenever I set up a "perfect" scenario I just get stressed...
So here is to adding another little man to the daily schedule...
Wish us luck!:)

  1. Your day sounds a lot like mine except I only have one so probably easier than yours! I can't wait until you add Jude to the mix! :)

  2. Landon was my difficult baby, Hannah was my easy baby. Neither of my kids slept through the night until they were a year old. Now Hannah almost always does but her nearly 3 year old brother...forget it...he never does. My kids have NEVER fallen asleep during walks, in the high chair, etc. You're gonna have your hands full no doubt but you've done this before which I think makes it a little easier. Because on your most tired days you will know that you'll one day sleep again! I think you have a really great point about the boys keeping each other entertained while you tend to Jude.

    I'm really excited for you!

  7. You can do it, I survived 3 under 3 and have lived to tell about it. Just make sure that you accept help when it is offered. Grandma Chambers came over and helped me out once a week, just ironed, or did things around the house and watched the three boys so I could go the grocery store, run errands, etc. It was nice because Jennifer was in school at the time, so just the three boys were at home :) I will be there to help you, just ask.

  11. Love that you ended this blog with the Luke face! Hilarious! W doesn't fall asleep anywhere either. Funny how kids are all so different. I hope you get your sleeper, but whoever Jude turns out to be, he's going to be blessed with two amazing big brothers, not to mention his all-star parents!

    And, let's talk soon about Vincent saying the rosary with y'all.
