a day in the life.

8:30 am I wake up to a puffy eyed jelly bean, sitting up in her crib, crying for a nurse and a minimum 5 minute cuddle sesh. 

after we nurse it's time for our naked dance. this is essential for waking up on the right side of the bed. we recommend it.

we come downstairs and let this weirdo out of his crate. he usually insists on a good stretch/carpet roll before sauntering outside- pausing at the door's threshold to make sure the weather is fit for his presence.

we turn on our Ella Fitzgerald record and make some breakfast for the little lady. cooked oats blended up with a banana and some frozen berries (to cool it down and make it nice and pretty)

after breakfast we go down for our morning nap. mom does makes her bed, has her devotional, eats breakfast and showers.

jelly bean wakes up, we nurse and catch a subway into downtown Boston to meet dad for lunch. the coolest cats always wear sunnies in the subway- didn't you know?

dad is just hilarious. it's always fun to see him mid-day for a change.

we stop at the grocery store on our way home to grab a butternut squash and some herbs for dinner. clara had her grumpy pants on on the way home so this is necessary. she can never help but smile and flirt at the grocery store. obviously.

clara goes down for her nap and mom does some halloween crafting.

she wakes up and we snuggle- it's hard to wake up. the jelly bean plays with Watson while mom starts making dinner. roasted fall vegetables, mmmm.

dad comes home and clara gets some puffs to tie her over until dinner.

quinoa and veggies for the win! also, she loves her dad.

bath time with dad so mommy can have a break.

watson waits outside the nursery for his favorite person to come play with him. mom is only good for snuggles.

mom peaks in the nursery to spy on her two favorite loves. goodnight sweet girl. we love you so much.

first "day in the life" post here.


  1. I LOVE it! I have always been wondering how do you manage your time with that cute little jelly bean of yours. You are a wonderful mom and wife and woman!!!!!

  2. Oh, how I love these posts! You're inspiring me to another one. Also, that picture of you and Clara after lunch is the best!

  3. I've been wanting to do a Day In The Life post on my blog for a while now......this one is so great!! It seems as though you and your little family really do love your life together, I think that's so great. : )

  4. that looks like the perfect day! bruce also knows that my husband is the one that plays rough with him and i'm the one for pets and cuddles :)

    1. it's crazy how they just "know"! Just like he can be so crazy/hyper with Steve and calm right down to play with Clara. I love dogs.

  5. I love this. It was as if i was there to watch this wonderfuly family of three. Not to sound like a creeper, haha.

  6. Can I be you when I grow up? I'm serious. This is a dream.

  7. This will be such a wonderful documentary to have. I keep thinking I will just remember each phase of my sons life but that's impossible! Weird question, where are you pajamas from? they look exactly like what i am looking for!

    1. The pants are from J Crew and the t shirt is from Gap!!
