Even though every day, week, and month are different, it’s fun to keep track of what life with Cullen is like at certain points along the way. Sometimes are morning and afternoons are flip-flopped, and other times we have extra errands to run or things to do. But we follow a general pattern to each day, and we’ve settled into a routine quite nicely.
Of course just as babies change, schedules and routines will change too, but in the meantime here’s what one full day looks like with my five-month old…
It’s crazy to re-read my day in the life of a 7 week old baby post, and see how different things are now.
A few notable changes between then and now:
- Feedings are much shorter and are 3 hours apart now – they take up so much less of our day!
- Cullen sleeps in his own room now – both for napping and overnight! This makes a huge difference in the quality of both of our sleep, and my productivity during the day.
- He is much more independent these days, and able to entertain himself for longer stretches. While I still play and interact with him all day long, I feel a lot less frantic that I must maximize every minute.
- We get out and do so much more than we used to! It’s fun that he can participate in our activities now instead of always sleeping through them.
I can only imagine how different this will look in another few months. Each day is different and there are always surprises, but I go to bed each night feeling incredibly blessed and lucky that I have the opportunity to be at home with my little munchkin, watching him grow.
