After a lot of thinking and shooting different pictures during the week, this was the picture that spoke to what the word "morning" feels like to me. Since our kids were born, they've been extremely early risers. I can't even think of the last time that the sun was up before I was. Now, my son is ready to go the second he leaps out of bed. But my daughter is more quiet and snuggly in the morning. This picture represents what our mornings are all about. It's dark. I check my email and she checks out the nook. I drink coffee and she has hot cocoa. I cherish these moments, because I know that too soon, she'll be all grown up and on her own. I'll always remember mornings with my baby and her cookie monster.
