It’s been a while since I shared Peyton’s current schedule with you guys! Of course it is always changing, and no two days are ever the same, but I am always curious about Peyton’s daily routine versus other kids her age, so I thought it might be helpful to share!
This is what a typical day with Peyton looks like! Peyton wakes up around 7:00am every day and I am fortunate that she can entertain herself for 20ish minutes so that I can get ready every morning, that is really important to me to start my day off right!
If we have any errands to run outside the house, I like to get those out of the way in the morning so that we can be home for Peyton’s nap in the afternoon. Most of the time, if we go out for lunch, she will fall asleep in the car and I will leave her out in the garage to nap (in a very safe, temperature controlled environment). If she doesn’t fall asleep on the way home, I will take her immediately inside and we’ll sit down on the couch with a bottle and she usually falls right to sleep. I know, she is too old for a bottle. And we are working on it. It is my goal to have her off the bottle by our summer vacation so that we don’t have to worry about that on the plane and in the hotel room.
We are also still doing bath time in the middle of the day. This is different than most other kids Peyton’s age, I think. Peyton LOVES the water and bath time is a fun activity for her, so we make it part of our daily routine! I know this will change as she gets older, but it’s working for us right now. And as always, snacks are a huge part of our day. Peyton is a total grazer so she hardly ever finishes a meal, so it seems like she’s always hungry.
Of course, this is all subject to change each and every day. Sometimes, if we meet Andrew out for lunch, and Peyton wants to stay and play at Gami’s house, then we stay and play at Gami’s house for a little bit. Especially now that it’s warmer, we are spending a lot more of our play time outside and Peyton is LOVING it.
Starting next week, Tiff and I are going to reveal where our summer vacation is and start sharing all about our packing! This is a BIG trip for Peyton and I am doing ALL the prep work to make this a great trip for her. With that said, I know that this trip is going to absolutely wreck Peyton’s schedule, but that is what vacation is all about! Stay tuned!
