I both love and hate mornings like this. I know I’ll hit the wall at some inconvenient time in a few hours, but for now I’m peaceful.
Kelsey woke me up through the monitor “singing” at about 4:30am. I went and checked on her and she had flipped herself over. I flipped her back and she fell back asleep for a little while. Unfortunately, I couldn’t really fall back asleep and just tossed and turned for a little while. At about 5:30am she started back up and actually started crying so I went and got her.
I’m not a morning person, but I know I’ll miss these early morning nursing sessions one day. The house is quiet so I can hear her breathing and suckling, I can hear my husband snoring from the bedroom, the cats have free reign of the house and are lounging on the couches, and I can have a little time to myself once Kelsey falls back asleep with a full belly.
I watch the sunrise (it still amazes me how it less than 1 hour it can go from pitch black to light) and I take the time to browse through linky party links and drool over other people’s blogs and photos and get ideas to add to my ever expanding list of things I want to try.
This morning I enjoyed a cookie and some milk (why not?) after starting a load of laundry.
I’m looking forward to seeing my sister and her husband today as they pass through town. I’m also going to try to take some pictures of them while they are here. I am enjoying practicing my photography on Kelsey but it will be nice to practice with subjects taller than 2 feet.
Now, I hear the rustling of crinkly baby toys coming from Kelsey’s room so she’ll be calling for me soon. I think it’s time to start the coffee.
