a day in the life

4:30 am: Justus wakes up for a feeding (he had been sleeping since 9 pm the night before!) and then right back to sleep for him and his mama.

7:15 am: Time to start the day! Justus eats and then it's hang-out time on mom's bed. He kicks & coos for the rest of his awake-time while Jana eats breakfast and reads the Bible.

Good morning!

8:45 am: Justus goes down for a nap. Jana finishes her devotions, starts a load of laundry, checks e-mail, and does the budget (expense tracking / paying bills).

11:00 am: Justus wakes up. Time to eat again and some more "kick time" while Jana eats her lunch. Then it's bath time.
I'm hungry, Mama!

Much better . . .

12:45 pm: Justus goes back down for a nap. Jana blogs, cleans the kitchen, does another load of laundry, and takes a shower.


3:15 pm: Time for Justus to get up from the nap! That was a long one....had to wake him up. JD eats once again and kicks for a bit on the play mat.

Just relaxing.

Mr. Big Eyes

4:15 pm: They head out for a walk with Liz. Justus naps while in the stroller and Jana gets her fill of girl-time.

6:15 pm: At home again. Jana watches a bit of "The Biggest Loser" on Hulu and makes Tuna Noodle Casserole while Justus continues to nap in his car seat.

7:00 pm: Jana wakes up Justus and feeds him again while finishing "The Biggest Loser" episode. They enjoy some time together: chattin' on the couch, tummy time on the mat and then some more kick time on the mat.

Happy, happy.

We love "kick time."

Tummy time with "Mr. Pig"

8:15 pm: Bryce is home from his part-time job! Mom & dad eat dinner and then dad spends some much needed time with his son.

9:00 pm: One last feed and diaper change and then it's time for bed for the little one, so the parents can have some time together before they crash.

* disclaimer #1: this was a super good nap day for Justus - he doesn't always sleep that long for each nap session.
* disclaimer #2: this was a super productive day for me - it's not always like that. the day before I sat on the couch all day and watched Hulu and didn't even get out of my pj's.


  1. He is so adorable. Fun post

  2. oh man. its great to stay in pjs and watch hulu all day. enjoy this time, it's such a joy and blessing! happy for you!

  3. Love the disclaimers :) Yes, enjoy the time you are able to actually watch hulu all day, once he's running around all day, you'll forget what hulu even is :). So enjoyed all the pictures!!! What a little stud. Love you little JD!!!
