10 pictures on the 10th day of the month!

Last Thursday was the tenth of the month, so I tried to document our day by snapping ten photos to show what we were up to. This is Tuesday, January 10th, 2017! We have had a stormy week here in California, and Tuesday was the windiest and rainiest of them all.

Luke had been sleeping so well lately and this was the last night of all that fun. For about a week he was sleeping from 7pm-7am+ and just waking once, which is a dream for me. I woke up at 6am on this morning and checked email from bed, which is a luxury these days!

Owen was already downstairs with Keith, so I had a few minutes to grab the boys clothes, get myself dressed for the gym and make our beds. Keith leaves before 7am these days, so after he left for work I made breakfast for Owen and I. He had a waffle, sunflower butter and strawberries. I had oatmeal and coffee. We had a rare, relaxing breakfast before Luke woke-up.

Luke woke up around 7:30, so we all snuggled up on the couch while Luke had his bottle.  Afterward I got Owen dressed and loaded up the car to head of for school. This was one of the stormiest days of the whole year, so the drive to school was quite entertaining for Owen!

I'm glad I got this smiling picture of my sweet little guy before school! He loves school and I have a hard time stealing a kiss from him once we get inside because he always tears off to play with his buddies.

Nothing says class like taking a selfie in the gym bathroom! Luke and I headed to the gym after we dropped Owen off. He is not loving being in the rear-facing big boy seat these days. I think his legs feel a little cramped, so I got us to the gym as quickly as I could. It is going to be a long year until we can turn him front facing.

We spent almost two hours at the gym, so when we were done we headed back to Owen's school a little early. This was my post-workout snack: chocolate protein shake and veggies.

We got to school early so I could put some files in the classroom, but Owen ended up getting hurt right when we got there. I little fleck of a styrofoam ball fell in his eye when he was playing and it hurt SO BAD. He was crying and upset, but the teachers were able to help him wash it out a bit, or so we thought. I sat with him during sharing, but out of no where he started screaming in pain again. My poor little boy. We ended up leaving school and went to get an eye wash. I was really worried for him and it was storming like heck, and Luke was tired and crying. This is one of those moments where you wish your own mom was there to help you. Thankfully the teachers and other moms where so helpful. Long story short, he is all better now.

Since Luke was asleep in the car, and Owen was feeling mostly better, we went for In N Out to cheer him up. I'm really trying to stick to healthy eating, and it is super hard to skip fries, but I did. I usually ask for extra tomato and no cheese, but when I rolled my window down to order I was getting soaked, so I got a little distracted!

Luke took a short little car nap, so he had lunch when we got home. How sweet is that smile? Lukey had mashed potatoes, avocado and some veggies straws. I give him the veggie straws to keep him busy in the highchair and he just LOVES them!

While Luke ate lunch and Owen played I got our dinner prepped. That night we had Kale Caesar and Grilled Chicken Bowls for dinner. I've been loving all the recipes we've tried from the SkinnyTaste Fast & Slow cookbook Keith gave me for Christmas.

Since Keith goes to work earlier now he gets home a lot earlier too! Today he got home at 4:00, so I was able to have a pretty easy time cooking dinner and setting the table while he and the boys made a fort. The storm was really raging at that point, and it sounded like we lived on the ocean!
After dinner is was our usual routine of clean up, dance party, bath time, books, bottle and bed! Keith and I watched an episode of The Man in the High Castle and then went to bed. 

So that was our day... dark, rainy and full!

Bummer about the styrofoam in Owens eye! Glad it got cleaned out, and in and out definitely helps too ;). And I'm so jealous your husband is home by 4!
