staying home with Grandma

Aiden stays home with my mom three days a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday).  Since our house is baby-proofed and furnished with baby-gear, she watches him at our house.  We're super lucky my mom  does this for us. Aiden receives the best care in the world in a safe, clean environment full of love and tenderness.  Aiden loves being with my mom and my mom loves being with Aiden. It's a match made in truely is.

My mom arrives at our house at 8:45 in the morning.  By 9:00 I have all of Aiden's food (milk, lunch, snacks) prepared, diaper table stocked, and toys cleaned and disinfected and ready for play time.  

Here's our daily routine:

I usually leave the house by 9:15 at which time my mom and Aiden also go out for a morning walk. 
- 7:30 wake-up!
- 8:00 morning freshening up for Aiden (rinse)
- 9:15 morning walk
 - 10:00 am Aiden goes down for a two-hour nap
- 1:00 pm is lunch
- 1:30 - 3 pm is free play time
- 3:30 is snack (milk)
- 4:00 is afternoon nap time - roughly one hour
- 5:00 out door play time
- 5:30 I get home from work
- 6:00 Adam gets home from work
- 6:00 is dinner time
- 6:30 is bath and massage time
- 6:50 is reading time
- 7:00 is bed time

Nawroz dudes

They're in control now but in a year or so, my dad and brother will be out of breath chasing Aiden around the house.  From the looks on their faces, I can tell that they have no idea what's to come.
