Most of our mornings look like this. We’re slowly starting to get on a schedule. I’m in my pj’s, Ellie rocks the diaper. We practice walking, Ellie tries to crawl to the stairs before mama can catch her, and anytime I pull the camera out, she immediately tries to grab it. We also take lots of walks outside (and embarrassingly enough, we are still sporting our pj look! 😉 Yogurt and bananas are our breakfast favorite, although eggs and pancakes are a close second. Every once in awhile we turn on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and she goes NUTS! It’s by far her favorite show. Every time she sees Mickey’s face she squeals! We snuggle down and usually by 9:30 she’s catching some zzzzzzzzzzz’s.

I’m starting to realize that it’s ok if dishes sit in the sink until naptime. The emails can wait to be opened. Morning playtime is one of my favorite times of the day!

    Good Mama, let it all go. Spend those precious moments with Ellie while you can, they fly. I love seeing all the fun you have together. And remember nap time is 'your' time; to rest, shower, read a book or even nap 🙂
