The Best Part Of My Day



I have never been a morning person. I find it easy to stay up until the wee hours of the night rather than crawl out of bed and start the day before the sun is up. But over the past few years I have chosen schedules that get me up earlier and earlier. I am not a fan of waking up early but I do love being able to get home and spend more time with my baby dudes and my hubby...

In my conscious mind I know this but when the alarms start buzzing I cant tear myself out of bed. I love my sleep and I don't get nearly enough of it. I typically get about 4 - 5 hours of sleep a night. Usually around the 5th or 6th alarm my consciousness will start to wake up and I am happy to get up because I remember what I am getting up for, my baby dudes.

The very first thing I do when I get up is go into my boys room and grab a baby. I used to try to nurse the babies at the same time, but as they get older it is a lot easier and more beneficial to nurse separately. One of my favorite things about nursing my boys is how sweet, loving, and snugly they are first thing in the morning. Its a total switch from how they are in the afternoon. When we nurse in the afternoons it is all about being silly, laughing and having fun. I love to tickle them and play games. They crack up over trying to grab my glasses off my face, with the end goal being to make me eat their little fingers. I almost always nurse them together in the afternoon and evening but in the morning there's just a whole different vibe coming from my babies. They are usually still half asleep and half awake and all they want is to be close to Mommy and they snuggle up closer into my chest. I can feel the warmth of their skin and and they always know Mommy has them and you can see the comfort that brings them. There is a moment when the baby wakes up halfway through and he will look up at my face like I'm the most amazing person he has ever seen in his whole life. For me, those moments are the very best moments in the entire world and my heart is filled with so much love.

Realizing what I have to look forward to in the morning created a major shift in my mind that when it comes to the morning. It still takes me a long time to get up, but as the last alarm goes off, the consciousness comes back to my mind and I see the image of my babies and I just I'm so excited to get up and go to them. The first thing I want to do is go pick up my baby, hold him, and snuggle him and just enjoy that time for as long as I can. I wish I had more tine to enjoy these moments with my baby dudes, but sadly the time comes where I have to put them back to bed and go to work. Being away from them all day long is so hard but my mornings with them help get me through the day. I know that there's going to be come a day very soon where we are going to start weaning them and I'm not going to have those moments anymore. It is very important to me that I enjoy and protect my time with my dudes. I don't do anything else other than just engaging with my baby or sleeping, snuggling and just being close to each of my babies as I can.

They are growing up so fast, I just want to enjoy every single sweet second I can and nursing a sleepy baby is one amazing way to do just that.
