I sure love the way our little one has slowed life down, and just as the nights are getting longer and the temperature cooler. It's always hard to get out of bed and off to class on a cold Fall morning, especially when a hot cup of gingerbread tea, a good book and latest knitting project are beckoning me to stay bundled in the sheets. Now I get to! And better yet, I have the snuggliest little companion during it all.
Our mornings look a lot like this: nurse Emery until she's near bursting (that girl can eat!), lay Emery down on a blanket for kicking and wiggling followed by tummy time, bring Emery onto my chest for snuggles under said blanket where I knit or read until she is sound asleep. Once asleep, I can bundle us up for a walk or lay her down so my hands are free to bake something, or stay right where I am with the promise of getting something done during the next nap time.
