If you read Kelly's Korner, you know she is documenting their week.  I thought it would be neat to do this as well and  look back on it and see how much my days change when the baby arrives in October!  So here was our Monday...not that you will be that interested in what we did with our day! 

Anna Riley decided to wake up at 6:00 this morning!!! I brought her to my room and we snuggled and watched Mickey Mouse until close to 7:00. Then we got up and she sat in her favorite chair (the recliner) and drank her milk while I fixed breakfast.

We ate breakfast...multigrain waffle and fruit.
After breakfast, I made the bed, started laundry and began to get ready while Anna Riley played in her playroom.  She had gotten out all the blocks so she had a mess as usual!  She was trying to sit backwards in her car and got stuck! 

We both got ready and headed to Kindermusik for our class at 9:30.  Because Anna Riley woke up so early, she fell asleep on the way there!  So she had a 5 minute power nap before class.

She did great in Kindermusik!!  I was afraid she would be ill but she always has so much fun in class!!
However, when we left class she wasn't so happy! She pitched a fit all the way home.

We got home around 10:30 and she was too upset to settle down and take a nap which she was in much need of.  Finally around 11, she went to sleep. While she napped, I planned what I would make this week and made a grocery list.
  She had to have her picture album with her during her nap... (It's a small, plastic picture album that has pictures of when she was born and she looks at it every night before bed).  I went to wake her up around 12:30 so she could eat lunch and this is what I found...

   Riley comes home for lunch on most days so he was here to eat with us.  After lunch and cleaning the kitchen up, we went to the grocery store.  She was pretty good at the store but she has definitely been better! We had a lot to get today so it seemed like it took forever! 
     When we got back, I put the groceries up and she "helped" me and then played with her books and puzzles for a little while before she had to lay down for her afternoon nap.
      She went down for her nap around 2:45 and while she slept, I blogged, unloaded the dishwasher, got ready for the gym and started cooking dinner. Anna Riley woke up around 5:00 and we went outside to check the mail, water the flowers and her favorite...sit on the steps and watch the cars go by! haha

We just put a flag up and she was so excited about it!

Riley came home and I left for the gym to go to Zumba class. They ate dinner around 6.  I made Balsamic Chicken with roasted vegetables.  I got the recipe from skinnytaste.com...which has lots of good and healthy meals.  It was a hit and Riley said AR ate a whole chicken thigh, vegetables and a whole sweet potato! 

I got home from the gym and I ate, we played with AR for a while, bathed her and let her watch an episode of Mickey Mouse while she drank her milk and then we put her to bed at 8:30. 
I layed in bed and watched some of the Bachelorette that was DVRd  while Riley read!
AND....that was our Monday! :)
