A lot has changed in our days since the girls were two-months old. Here's what our day looks like now (been this way for the last month or so)...
7:15 AM - Paul, Maria and Jared wake up
7:30AM - We eat breakfast together!
8:00AM - Maria pumps. Paul's getting morning bottles and baby food ready. Jared is probably playing.
8:30AM - We feed all four girls at once...bottles first, then solids/baby food, then a "seconds" bottle. Usually, Anna and Bethany eat ~9oz of breastmilk/formula and Suzan and Brielle eat ~7oz. They all eat 1.75oz of baby food with some cereal (rice or oatmeal) mixed in. Jared is busy watching something on PBS, e.g. Word Girl, Word World, Caillou, Bob the Builder.
~9:15AM - Play time for the girls! Or exercise/physical therapy time. Or stroll around the neighborhood time.
10:00AM - Lay the girls down for a nap. Time for us to get some stuff/errands done and time to play with Jared.
11:30AM - Lunch for us
Noon - Maria pumps again
12:30PM - Time to feed the girls again...bottles, solids/baby food, bottles. M-Th Jared goes to pre-k.
~1:15PM - Play time with the girls. Or bath time (about 2x a week).
2:00PM - Nap time for the girls. Try to get Jared down for a nap or some quiet time.
2:30PM - Maria naps (hopefully)
3:30PM - M-Th pick up Jared from pre-k
4:00PM - Maria pumps
4:30PM - Feeding time! Give the girls bottles, solids/baby food and bottles.
~5:15PM - Play time for them
~5:30PM - Dinner for us three
6:00PM - Lay the girls down for a last/third nap
Between 6:00PM and 7:00PM - Play time for Paul, Maria and Jared
~7:00PM - Jared's bed time
8:00PM - Maria pumps
8:30PM - Feed the girls one last time for the day (bottle only). They then sleep for 12 hours! Woo hoo!
10:00PM (more likely 10:30PM ;) ) - Bed time for Paul and Maria
2:00AM - Maria has one middle-of-the-night pumping session
We have to say that we love this schedule! There's more meal time/together time for us with Jared and more play time with the girls. Plus, we've gotta love the girls sleeping 12 hours at night. Oh, yeah! ;) It still feels like we "go!-go!-go!" and it's just non-stop baby time here but it's all good! It's our life with seven-month-old quads and a 4.5 year old boy :)
