But here's what our schedule looks like at 14-months old...
6:30 a.m.-6:45 a.m. Rise & Shine (This is so much better than it used to be...until about 2 months ago, he always woke up at 5 something...)
6:45 a.m. diaper change, breakfast, let the dog out, you know, morning business stuff
8:00 a.m. Four days a week, we head to the YMCA, about a 2-minute car ride away. I like to go super early because Henry is the 1st kid in there and most kids don't arrive until later on in the morning. It's much less crowded. I am not a serious worker-outer but I do feel like Henry does better in there when we consistently go.
9:30 a.m. -11:15 a.m. NAP #1
11:15 a.m. lunch, go to the park by our house, play with the water house, etc.
2:00 p.m.-3:15p.m. NAP #2
3:15 p.m. play, go on a walk, eat supper, take a bath, maybe go visit a friend, etc. and so forth
7:40 p.m. go upstairs, take vitamins, brush teeth, wind down
8:00 p.m. Lights Out! (this is an hour later than it used to be but, hey...it's summer!)
Obviously, our schedule still moves around...we go to playgroup on Wednesdays from 10:30-12:30 and some days the napping is longer or shorter, but for the most part...it seems to have somewhat evened out! (Why am I writing this? It's bound to all change now:)!)
I just remember being so stressed about Henry's sleeping and napping and wondering what I was doing wrong or how I could make it better and there is hope! And light at the end of the sleepless tunnel. Now that I'm pregnant, I often nap during one of Henry's naps. (and I lurve it!) I'm not sure what adding a newborn to this mix will entail but, for now, I like our schedule.
