Here’s Eli as an 18 month old:

6:30 AM Wake up. Not as content as he used to be to talk to himself for long periods cause kid has places TO GO.
After wake up, big sippy full of milk and either a cereal bar (on work days) or oatmeal/cereal/muffins/waffles on non work days
8-noonish PLAY PLAY PLAY PLAY PLAY PLAY
Noonish–lunchtime. He eats a lot of different foods although it seems like some days he prefers to exist on nothing but 4 goldfish crackers and air, other days he will have 4 courses for each meal and demand more. Favorites are ravioli (the gerber pasta pickups kind), goldfish, blueberries, hummus and pita, salsa and chips, sauteed kale, chicken strips, and any sort of bean.
1-3 PM Naptime. Usually prompted by Eli himself who will start saying “Bye bye” when is tired and ready to go down.
3-4 PM Wake up, snack, usually some water or milk and lately, popcorn. He’s a total popcorn junkie.
5:30ish Dinner.
8 PM Bedtime.
