In November of last year, I did a “Day in the Life” post that you can read HERE of what my typical day is like without Reese. Below is an updated day of what my glamorous life is like with a 2 month old baby. 🙂 All joking aside, I love being home with Reese. There are times I get bored or frustrated, but she just has to give me one of her gummy smiles, and I forget all the other stuff and realize how lucky I am.

*This is just one day that I documented as the day went along, some days I don’t clean in the evenings, or we don’t sit down to eat dinner until 8pm. Life with Reese changes all the time, but this was close to our “normal” these days. The older she gets the more it changes, but I’m okay with that. I love seeing Reese get more responsive, and it is funny that toward the end of play time sometimes I’m just waiting for her to go to sleep for her naps because she is cranky. But the funny thing is, normally before she wakes up I am super excited to spend time with her again. It is funny how that cycle goes. Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
