A Day in the Life of Teagan Tesla Vaughn

A Day in the Life of Teagan Tesla Vaughn
by T. Tesla

My Mom started taking photos of me when she put me in my co-sleeper at my usual bedtime of 7:30pm.  Here I am all burrito-ed up in my swaddler.

I stirred at midnight.  So, Mom unburrito-ed me and pulled me into bed with her and Dad.  I nursed a bunch of times while Mom slept.  At some point, Dad changed my diaper.  Thanks, Dad!

At 7:00am, I decided it was time for everyone to wake up.  I think my parents would sleep all day if it were up to them.  Thank goodness it isn’t.

Dad gave me sleepy kisses and then took me to change my diaper.  He let me air out on the change table for a bit and then put on my robot diaper cover.  Dad really likes my robot diaper cover.

Mom plunked me in my Bumbo while she made breakfast.  I watched my furry siblings and chewed intensely on my toy.

p1000212

Here I am playing my new favorite game.  I like to call it Fetch Mommy!

p1000211

I pooped a big one while I was in my Bumbo and it shot out the back of my diaper like a volcano.  This only happens when I’m in my Bumbo.  Needless to say, Mom had to go change me.  She mumbled a lot about not getting her coffee yet.

p1000213

Mom said it was time for some nakie time.  Really I think she was just too lazy to put my diaper on.  I rolled around on the floor while Mom and Dad had coffee and oatmeal.

p1000214

p1000215

Time for some boob!

p1000218

Next it was potty time.  I love sitting on my potty!

p1000221

Aw, Mom!  Seriously you have to show off my pee?!

p1000224

Mom let me chew on her finger while I sat on my potty.  I’ve got a few more teeth coming in.  Mom and Dad can’t believe I already have two!

p1000222

Look at me sitting slumpy style on my change table!  I think I’m way older than I really am.

p1000223

It’s 9:30 and Mom thinks I ought to have a nap.  However, I’m teething so I decide to make things interesting.  First she tries the swing.

p1000227

I conk out long enough to let Mom think about tackling the dishes.

p1000228

But then I started crying so Mom decided another diaper change was in order.

p1000225

Back in the swing I go.  Mom washes the bottles I still refuse to drink from.  Just because I refuse to take a bottle doesn’t mean Mom doesn’t have to still pump!  Haha!  This time I stay asleep long enough to let Mom finish washing the dishes.

p1000231

p1000232

More boob at 10am!  Mom checks PG.org while I nurse.  Since I nurse A LOT, this explains how Mom has so much time to post on PG.org.

p1000233

p1000234

p1000235

Now I’m good and passed out so Mom leaves me on the couch under Daddy’s (and the cat’s) supervision.

p1000236

p1000240

Mom went out to survey the damage last night’s hard freeze did on our cactus.

p1000239

Mom also sorted all my cloth diapers.  My Mom is so weird.  She actually likes sorting my diapers.

p1000242

We’re headed out to the Farmer’s Market.  So, Mom cutes me up.  I’m going to have to get used to the fact that my Mom doesn’t dress me in traditional girly clothes.

p1000244

While Mom packed my diaper bag, I got to chewing.

p1000245

Mom tends to pack my diaper bag like we’re leaving for a week.

p1000246

As usual, I was not happy in the car seat.   So, I shot Mom the evil eye.

p1000248

Mom and Dad stopped off at the bank and I demanded another diaper change.

p1000249

When we arrived at the Farmer’s Market at 11am, Mom popped me into the Mai Tai.  I so love the Mai Tai.

p1000251

After fighting our way through a flock of handsy old ladies, Mom bought me my very own butternut squash.  It was baby-sized.  Mom and Dad have decided to start me on people food this weekend!

p1000252

Mom and I dropped Dad off at school at noon.  Go Wildcats!

p1000253

Next we met up with my Mom’s friend Tara for lunch at Bisonwiches.  Tara is also my babysitter.  By the time we arrived at restaurant, I had fallen asleep (hehehehe).

p1000254

With my help, Mom picked out the broccoli cheddar bread bowl.  She said it was just OK.  Mom is a picky foodie.   I got some more boob, which always tastes good.  Mom couldn’t handle taking a pic of that because I was trying to show her boob off to the table next to us.  So, you get to use your imagination.

p1000255

After lunch I played with Tara’s daughter, Ada.  Ada is loads of fun!

p1000256

We made a stop at the Little Bird Nesting Company, a local baby boutique.  Mom was so busy oogling diaper covers that she forgot to take pics.  Don’t worry, she made me model what she bought later.  Here’s another pic of a diaper change though!

p1000258

When we got home at 3:30pm, it was potty time again.

p1000259

More playtime on the floor. Wanna see me roll over?!  Here we go!  Yay!

p1000262

p1000263

p1000264

Mom also took some video of me playing on the floor!

Boob time.

p1000267

I’m flying!

p1000269

I’ve got you pinned, Mom!  Pinned with my cuteness!

p1000270

It’s 4:30pm and time to take the puppies for a walk.  They were excited.

p1000271

Mom put me in the Moby so I could face out while we walked.  I’m so cool in my shades.   Ignore the goofy look on Mom’s face.  She was eating a Clif Bar.  Mom only has two hands, both of which were occupied, so we didn’t get any pics of our walk.  We discovered that much of the cactus in the neighborhood met the same fate as ours.  It was like the cact-pocalypse!

p1000272

Mom gave me a spoon to practice chewing on while she decided what to make for dinner.

p1000275

We decided to make polenta.  I helped!  Don’t worry, Mom put me down before she turned the burner on.

p1000276

While the polenta simmered, Mom read me a book.  I love books!

p1000279

My cousin sent us a link to a drum-line competition video.  I totally dug it!  My enthusiasm supplied yet another line of evidence that I will become an artist just to confuse my scientist parents.

p1000280

p1000281

Modeling my new wool diaper cover.  I didn’t actually need more covers but Mom said that the purchase was justified because it was relatively cheap for wool, it was made locally, and it’s a gender-neutral color so my future sibling of unknown gender can wear it.  I think she’s really just addicted to fluff.

p1000282

p1000283

More boob.  I popped off to say hi with milk on my face.  Aldo gladly licked it off.

p1000284

p1000285

p1000286

One last chance for potty!

p1000287

Then it was time to put on my nighttime diaper.  Mom double stuffs my diaper and puts in a stay dry liner.  She thinks this keeps me asleep longer.  I think it just makes my butt look big.

p1000288

p1000290

In preparation for sleepy time, Mom wrapped me up like a burrito.

p1000291

One last nursey-nursey time before bed.

p1000294

I babbled at mommy for a few minutes before passing out.

It’s 7:15pm annnd, I’m out.

p1000295

Thanks for sharing my day with me!!!

    This was amazing. We can’t be there right now, so this is the next best thing. What a darling girl and what a cool mom you are. How is the solid food coming along? She sure looks healthy!! I’m rooting for the artist part of her!! Love all 3 of you guys bunches and bunches.

    Wow Erin! That was so creative and beautiful! What a great idea. It seems that you have some artist in that scientist brain of yours. I loved seeing the little monkey as she went through her day in her bumbo, on the potty, burritoed up and going sleepy sleep while blowing raspberries. So precious.
