One of my most favorite times of the day is when Audrey first wakes up. We hear her talking to herself and jumping up and down in her crib until daddy goes and gets her. Then I hear Mama from afar until it gets closer and closer. Mama Mama Mama. Then I see her smiling face and daddy lifts her up into bed with me, I get a quick hug and kiss and then she is ready to go. Down. No matter how tired I am in the morning, those moments are so precious to me.
Then when we go to bed we are reminded of our morning snuggles when Andrew pulls back the covers and lays on a toy whisk.
These are the joys of parenting.
