Good Mornings

I have never been a morning person. I love to sleep and waking up in the morning has always made me sad. Even in college when I didn't have to wake up until 9am or 10am, I still did not want to get out of bed. Anyways, as many of you know, having a baby means that you have to get up in the morning. No sleeping in with the baby because you have to feed them and besides, a baby that sleeps in is one that will be up all night.

There is still a moment when I first wake up when I am grumpy and want to go back to sleep. After that brief moment, my mind starts working and I remember that I get to go wake up my precious daughter. I am almost instantly energized. I go into Emerson's room, turn on the light and there she is smiling with this huge grin on her face. She is so excited to see me. My heart just melts.

After we "talk" for a minute I pick her up and she is instantly kicking and squealing with excitement that it is time to start the day. Her energy is absolutely infectious. After I fix her breakfast with one hand while holding her in the other arm, it is time to sit down to eat. She LOVES to eat breakfast. After she has finished her oatmeal and milk, she is all smiles.

Needless to say, I can now call myself a morning person. Sweet Emerson makes getting up in the morning a great joy. Waking up early to spend time with her is so much better than waking up to go to a corporate job.
