How I spent my birthday

I spent my 28th birthday at home with my little guy. I might have considered using my birthday floater, but with no daycare this week I had no choice. I picked my day at home to be today, while the rest of my family pitches in the rest of the week.

Waking up from an afternoon nap

Here’s how my birthday went…

  • 7:05 a.m. – wake up to donuts and a talking baby
  • 7:45 a.m. – nursing session #1
  • 8:09 a.m. – watch Maximus
    roll from his back to his tummy while we snuggle in bed
  • 8:19 a.m. – realize that Maximus isn’t facing me because he’s sleeping
  • 10:50 a.m. – open my eyes because I felt Maximus stirring. I find him looking at me while he sucks his thumb.
  • 11:00 a.m. – get Maximus dressed and have nursing session #2
  • 11:20 a.m. – put Maximus in his bounce-a-bout in the bathroom so I can take a shower
  • 12:00 p.m. – Bryan picked us up and took us out for lunch. Maximus stayed in his car seat the whole lunch.
  • 1:05 p.m – Maximus took a nap in his crib while I vacuumed
  • 1:45 p.m. – photo session in the crib
  • 2:00 p.m. – nursing session #3 while I caught up on episodes of Brothers & Sisters
  • 3:00 p.m. – Maximus rolled over from back-to-tummy-to-back all in one fluid movement!
  • 3:15 p.m. – Maximus fell asleep on his tummy, again.
  • 4:30 p.m. – woke up and played with daddy; I opened my present from my boys: new boots!
  • 4:50 p.m. – nursing session #4
  • 5:30 p.m. – went out to eat with my family
  • 7:35 p.m. – nursing session #5
  • 7:50 p.m. – Maximus put to bed awake. After 10 minutes of high kicking, he fell asleep.
  • 8:00 p.m. – much needed photo editing, Shutterfly uploading, and Facebook album uploading as well as birthday  responses.
Look mommy! I rolled over during my nap!

It’s been a great 28th birthday! I wouldn’t have changed a thing; I got to sleep in (!!), snuggle with my baby, and play with him all day. Just another perfect day!

    1. If you would have told me that’s what you wanted for your birthday, I could have given him to you for the day! 😉
