Morning Play

Our mornings are usually pretty slow. Padyn comes in and wakes me up "after the music goes on" and we read for a little bit before I can actually open my eyes fully and attempt to sit up in bed. (Mind you, this isn't actually early in the morning. It's about 8am, which is quite late in most people's books. Not mine.)

So, we read, I eventually get up, and we mosey around the house for a little bit-we both get dressed, I may turn on Sesame Street for her so I can check my email, we meander downstairs for breakfast and more coffee, and we continue to watch whatever is on PBS. Usually around 9am Katelyn wakes up and is pretty content to hang out in her crib for a while watching her mobile. This is especially good on mornings when we actually have to leave the house at a scheduled time. She plays, Padyn watches Big Bird, and I shower and do all the normal getting ready to go out things.

If we aren't leaving the house, then the TV goes off after Kate has been fed and we usually head back upstairs to play while I either fold laundry, vacuum, clean, or do some other household chore that I would prefer to put off. Inevitably we all end up on Mommy and Daddy's bed for some play time. Kate loves watching Padyn jump on the bed. It makes her laugh every time. Padyn loves trying to make Kate roll over or playing with her feet or tickling her. These pictures capture our typical morning. I have to admit, that even with the chores, we usually have a lot of fun.

It's so good to hear that your mornings are as laid-back and sometimes as lazy (chores not withstanding) as ours are! You've gotten some great shots with the camera, too. I love the one of P holding K's feet.
