Morning, Sunshine!

I have always been a morning person.  I would wake up at 5 am when I was a toddler.  Yes, that's right.  5 AM.  Not only would I be awake, but I was AWAKE.  I would start chatting away.  I was ready to play.  The day had started and I intended to make the most of it.  My poor parents.  5 AM is early even for morning people.

I love the early day.  I look forward to how different it feels than the rest of the day.  The places you see every day are suddenly changed.  The air lends itself to the altered mood and there is a distinct feeling of rest.  I know. I know.  You would say, "Not true."  And "spoken like a true morning person."  Maybe it is my appreciation of solitude that sways my thinking.  I enjoy that brief feeling of being alone and the quiet renews my understanding.  There is something about the dawn, when the light has not fully come, that gives meaning to the day.

I believe my kids have inherited my appreciation of the morn.  Especially Elliot.  He is my 5 AM-er.  Asher, on the other hand, is more of a 7 am-er.  And I don't mind it.  I know that sounds insane.  Any other mother would take my hand and ask me to reconsider.  But I love my little morning men.  They remind me why each day is important.  They smile at me and everything seems better and brighter.

And since we are talking similarities, I thought I would show some baby pictures.  Elliot looks a lot like me and Ash is Jimmy's little twin!

Jimmy, on the left, is 5.5 months.  Asher, on the right, is 4 months.  Jimmy is obviously way chubbier in the face, but they do look so much alike!
