Morning Routine

Peyton and I have a pretty solid morning routine. A routine that will certainly be disrupted by the arrival of a certain new family member. Peyton wakes up between 7:45 and 8:15 and I go get him out of bed. He eats his breakfast on the couch (usually oatmeal) while watching his cartoons. I sit with him and eat my breakfast while checking emails/surfing the web on my iPad. We then both get dressed and head outside to play for the morning (usually meeting up with some of the other neighborhood kiddos).

I've been trying to savor this morning routine for the past few days b/c I know everything is soon about to change. It is bittersweet. There really is now way around it. I love Peyton SOOOOOOOOO much and it is hard for me to think that I'm going to soon love another little being just as much. There's a little bit of guilt floating around in my's hard to describe. I almost feel like I'm letting Peyton down a little bit by adding another member to our family. I have treasured the alone time I've had with Peyton and it is hard to to think that it is soon going to change. I honestly don't understand how my heart is going to expand enough to love another little baby....... IMG_5056
