Warning, long post ahead!
But this is a blog about my life, so.

I had the day off of work today, and I resolved to use it as a catch-up, errand-running, baby-lovin' kind of day.  Spoiler alert, I only got about half-way through my to-do list, but it was a grand day nonetheless. I'm going to do this thing here where I detail and document our schedule today and give you a peek into a day in the life of a mama bear and her baby bear.

My day usually starts around 6AM every morning (including weekends...) but Sloane let me sleep until 7:00 AM, bless her soul.

7:00 AM: Good morning Sloane! Nurse baby, play with baby

8:00 AM: Breakfast. Tofu and avocado for baby. Sauteed vegetables and a fried egg for mama.

8:30 AM: Play time

9:00 AM: Nurse baby, baby goes down for a nap

9:30 AM:  Catch up on e-mails and skim headlines with a cup of coffee. I also had a piece of a lemon pie I made last night - I'll tell you more about that later.

10:00 AM: Prepare food for Sloane. I love this Babycook machine.

Also, wash dishes, fold laundry, get diaper bag and self ready to go out.

10:45 AM: Wake Sloane, change diaper, head out!

11:00 AM: Visit a thrift store. I visited Class and Trash for the first time and it kept our eyeballs fully occupied. Sloane was in awe.

12:15 PM: Return home, nurse baby.

12:30 PM: Lunch.  Sweet potato sticks and peas for baby,  chicken sweet potato curry (leftovers from dinner lat night) for mama.

1:30 PM: Clean baby up, playtime in the nursey

2:15PM: Outside time

2:30 PM: Wash dishes while Sloane whined at me from her exersaucer. She has been less and less happy about being confined in there. After I finished the dishes, we went back up to the nursery to play.

3:00 PM: Nurse baby, then baby goes down for her afternoon nap.

3:30 PM: More laundry, cleaning, some work.

5:00 PM: Baby wakes

5:30 PM: Papa comes home!

5:45 PM: Nurse baby.

6:00 PM: Cook dinner.

6:30 PM: Dinner.  Mango and brown rice cereal for baby. Bacon fried rice for mama and papa (inspired by Shutterbean)

7:00 PM: Playtime and night time activities with baby.

8:00 PM: Baby's bedtime.

8:30 PM: A myriad of things, including spending some time with this book that I got in the mail today that I am really excited about. It's about the daily rituals of writers, composers, painters, poets, sculptors, filmmakers, scientists, etc. and "how they create (and avoid creating) their creations."

And there we are!


  1. love the day in the life! all that food sounds amazing!!!

  2. Definitely interesting to see a day in the life of a mama and baby about the same age as me and my little one. It's different yet so similar.

  3. Congratulations on a day in your life with baby Sloane!
    I love baby's hat.

  4. This was so cool! also really fabulous to see you and sloane on sunday. i need more of baby/mama time. feeling inspired by you today while riding to dc on the train! ps. we loooove class and trash.

  5. among many things (like sloane's little tongue and chubby hands grasping for peas, and the all too familiar but almost comforting piles of folded laundry) I love seeing the light in your photos change as the day progresses. beautiful. make a little book out of the photos and review these priceless fleeting days with your sloane as she gets older. love and miss you all

  6. you need to do a photo series JUST of sloane's chub hand reaching for food
