Feed on

Dressed for my busy day...Boy, Simon had a great day today! He started off with some colossal sleeping. We put him down at 10:00 PM last night, intending to wake him for a scheduled feeding in an hour. I talked Jessica into going to sleep and waiting for him to wake us up, but that didn’t happen until 4:30 AM. It took some time to get him down after Breakfast, but I managed to get him out (and my own butt back into bed) by 6:00 AM. He then slept until 8:00 AM, and after Second Breakfast his busy day began in earnest.

First Simon helped Mom make her own breakfast by supervising from his Baby Papasan seat (carefully perched on the kitchen island). Then the two of them headed back upstairs and listened to the Diane Rehm Show on NPR during Elevenses. After that, Mom sang along with his new My Fair Lady soundtrack album while Simon did an interpretive dance.* All that singing and dancing required a nap before Luncheon, which was served promptly at 1:30 PM.

After that, we attended to Simon’s social calendar, going for a stroller walk down Bardstown Road and visiting Aunt Stacy and the Goldstein Cousins. You wouldn’t think their place would be great for a nap with all the kids running around, flipping out with their Christmas loot, but it did just fine for Simon, who only awoke late in the game to announce that it was time for Afternoon Tea. We rushed home and fed him just in time to avoid a fuss.

Having paid attention to all of Simon’s meals so far, Mom and Dad were famished. So we headed over to the new Cafe at Douglass Loop, where Simon took in a light snooze before posing for some ridiculously cute photos. Next it was back home for Dinner, a bath, an amazing nap and a late Supper. Whew! Barely time in a single day to fit in all those very important meals**.
