Great Mornings

I will admit that we still don't have any routines in place. But on most mornings, albeit late, I wake up with a smile on my face.

Yakee will have an hour or so when he'd be restless and switching breasts just before he's fully ready to wake up. I'd say GOOD MORNING to him and ask him if it's time for wakey-wakey... and he'd shake his head when he's still not ready. But if he is ready, he wouldn't nod his head. He'd smile instead while still nursing. So i'd trail my fingers all over his body and tickle him a little, to which he'd smile more.

Then he'd let go of Mommy, sit up, smile his big smile that his eyes become slits and proceed to find another position on the bed again. Usually, he'd be lying on his front but still smiling in my direction the whole time.

Which is why Mommy is really, really privileged. Not everyone gets to stay in bed till their child is OK to wake up, and see that child start the day with a smile.
