Mornings are so fun in our house! It may be my favorite time of the day. When Lantz was out of town this summer I started a new thing with the girls. Sawyer and I get up at 7:00. I sneak in the girls room and get Sawyer from her crib quietly not waking Kennedie. I shut their door and then feed Sawyer. After that I workout and then it's time to get big sister up.
This is the "new" part to our morning routine: Sawyer and I go in the girls room & I lay Sawyer in bed with Kennedie and then I start singing "morning" songs to them. They both LOVE this. They look at each other and touch each other and smile really big. I sing, "Good Morning to you" (in the tune of the "happy birthday" song), then "Rise & shine and give God the glory, glory..." then "Get up you sleepy head, get up get out of bed. See how the sun is shining..." then "Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day. I've got a beautiful feeling, everything's going my way."
Alot of times I'll get in bed with them too and we'll just lay there singing for a bit. The picture above is from yesterday. After I was done singing she said, "Picture, Mommy." So I happily obliged and grabbed my camera to snap them in bed (of course she didn't look at the camera though).
Just love this time so much that I thought I'd share. :)
