A Realistic 2-year-old Routine

Our 2-year-old routine hasn’t changed too much from Bitty’s 18-month routine but there have been a couple of changes so I thought I would make an update! I am a firm believer in toddler routines. They thrive on predictability and honestly, it keeps me motivated as well. So in case you are looking to update your toddler routine now that your little is getting older then read on!

Our 2- year-old routine is simple and strait forward. We don't schedule too much in the day to leave lots of time for free play!

Vintage Elephant Gender Reveal Backyard BaByQ

We had a simple gender reveal party, with some vintage decor touches, plenty of elephants rolling around, and fun out in the backyard with friends and family!

Vintage Elephant Gender Reveal Backyard BaByQ. That’s such a mouthful when you say it all together. But that’s what it was. We had some vintage decor touches. Plenty of elephants scattered around. We hung around in the backyard while we were grilling burgers for dinner on the BBQ. Then the whole point of why we got together to spill the beans about what sex baby Bean is!

Toddler Toy Closet Organization

The toy closet keeps all her toys together and organized so that come rotation day finding what we want to put out on her play shelf is a snap! We don’t use a complete bin system, I’m sure we will get to that but I currently prefer doing custom rotations and my organization system is set up to suit that!

You’ll have to forgive the poor quality photos…its a closet. The lighting just isn’t up to par. lol

Toddler Play Shelfie – April 1st

Another toy rotation in the books! I rotate every two weeks normally; though this was technically a three-week rotation because we were gone for a whole week in the middle for a little “spring break”. This was the first time that I considered leaving the toys for a little longer. As I was watching her play over the weekend she was still interacting well with a few of the items! In the end I did decide to change most of it out but we did have out first repeat toy this time so we’ll see how that goes!

Toddler Play Shelf – March 11th

If you have never tried toy rotations you really should! It’s amazing how much more they will play with something when they just haven’t seen it for a while! I rotate 6-8 toys, as well as a puzzle. Her babydolls, play kitchen, some blocks and her gross motor toys stay out full time. I keep the rest of her toys tucked away in her closet. I call our toy display, her play shelf but really it’s just the bottom shelves of the living room bookcases! Also Let me know if you would want to see a toy storage post. You know me I love to talk organization. 😉

18 Month Old Routine

Bitty has been on a routine of some kind her whole life. her 18 month routine has just evolved naturally as her needs change. With the exception of us learning her sleep needs as a baby she has been a very good kid as far as going with the flow and I don’t know if that has anything to do with our routines but it makes it nice when I have to change things up a bit!

See how we set up our real life day to day.
