12.31.16: Day in the Life

It all started with going to sleep early on the 30th. That is rare. But I'm so glad I did it. I remember hearing Dave tell Ella go to back to her room many times. I would not even open my eyes or I would have been roped into doing something or talking to her and I'd have been up forever. I remember Dave got annoyed and gave her her iPad. This was around midnight.

4:30 Ella woke me up a few minutes before Miles woke up telling me to fix her iPad. I fix the app and give it back and she scurries back to her bed. I have no idea why she has her iPad or how long she's had it. It was like 10 pm when I bought she gave Dave the iPad. (according to my fitbit this was around midnight not 10 PM)

4:33 Miles wakes up.
Nursing and trying to get Miles back to sleep. After a few min Ella comes in with her iPad and sits in chair but she won't shut up. And Miles won't go back to sleep
Then I change his diaper and she keeps poking at his eyes saying she's not poking. Then she covers his eyes. Then she tried to show him the iPad. And of course he wants to watch. She lets go of iPad and it falls on his head. So then she stands it back up and lets go and it falls on his head again. Then she tells me to be quiet and stop yelling after I yell at her to back up and let him be.
We go to living room to try to get Miles to sleep. He doesn't want to. Ella won't stop turning on the lights. Then she finds potato chips Dave left out and I say no but eventually say yes so she eats lots of chips.
5:47 AM
5:51 Miles is asleep in the swing.
6:01 AM
6:01 I wait a few min and carry him to his crib. His arm is not swaddled well and he's touching his face but he goes to sleep so I leave. Then I get Ella water and go back to the living room where she is watching her iPad.
6:13 AM And she has so much snot and I keep giving her kleenexes

Dealt with Ella. Gave her more chips

This is more like a day and a half but I wasn't sure where to start and finish.

I can't believe I copied all the text into this post, added all the times,  and then lost the entire thing. It took me days to finalize this and add the pictures not counting the over a day I spent the first time putting it all in. So time consuming! I need to do less in a day. i also had more pictures but that would make this too long and also take too much time.

I did a day in the life post once before on April 20, 2016 + a post of a day in the life of Ella's crib.
