Eye Spy .. My Morning Ritual

I am ignoring the usual ritual of me running around and yelling for everyone to get ready, eat and be nice to each other. My favourite morning ritual is getting a quick Caleb snuggle before we get up to attack the world. Usually about 6am there is a little wriggling next to me, a kiss on my nose and then hopefully a little doze until we have to get up and start the day. I love this time, he twirls my hair (which he has done since he was born), but he is getting so big now I know I am on borrowed time so I try and lie still and enjoy the moment.
Thanks to Angie for this weeks theme and I am hoping that Fuzzy Dragon (have you seen her drawigns, they are just amazing) can help out for next week. Mr Linky is temporarily not working - I will try to figure out why.
Stop me if you've seen this one before, but these are the new girls pants that I have done for the market. I liked them so much that Poppy has ended up with a pair as well. Denim with anglaise trimmed bottoms and wide lace back pocket. I was hoping to get 8 dresses finished on the week-end for the Sydney market but bed won last night. I think the good nights sleep will do me good in the long run though, especially since work was especially crazy last week.

Yes cuddles are exceptionally beautiful aren't they? Esp. when it's warm and snuggly! A lovely image. I hope you enjoy many more over the years.

I'm playing!

I get cuddles every morning too. It's a wonderful start to the day isn't it? I'm glad to know I will still be getting them for quite a while yet and I hope you do too.

PS. Those pants are super cute as usual! Best dressed kid on the block?!
:)

We have to enjoy those little cuddles while we can. And I love those pants! Denim and lace - timeless!

Home Girl said...

fab denim and frills combo - very sweet love em. those sleepy morning possum creatures are precious - so different to the wriggly worms they turn into as the day progresses

sophie said...

gorgeous pants Cindy! We get cuddles too in the morning, sometimes all three 'babies' climb into our bed for some love before the day starts.

Beth said...

Those pants look absolutely terrific! I'm sure they will sell like hotcakes.

Liesl (Hoppo Bumpo) said...

Now why is it that everyone else gets cuddles, when one of my boys pulls my hair and the other tries to poke me in the eye?!

I love those cute trousers with the broderie trim. Poppy looks so cute in them!

They are getting rarer, sadly, but I still get morning cuddles...and my kids are almost 15 and 12. There is hope for a while longer! :D

Tania said...

Snuggles really are tiny treasures aren't they? I have one kid growing out of the snuggly thing and it's a killer...

(and I so wish thirty eight year olds could get away with wearing your spiffy girly trousers!)

Jade said...

I'm loving the morning cuddles too - better get them while they're little!! Very cute pants too :)
