Happy Morning!

  I've bragged on Dave's morning skills before - but I'm going to do it again.... because he's awesome.

In the mornings pretty much my only responsibility is getting myself up and ready and picking out an outfit for Griffin (which I typically do the night before anyway).  Dave gets lunches ready and makes sure Luke gets dressed and then Luke and I are typically gone by 7:00.  Sometimes the littles are awake when I leave, but some mornings they're still sleeping.  

After I leave, Dave gets Mason and Griffin up, fed, dressed and to Miss Lisa's house.  I told you - he's awesome.  In between 1st and 2nd periods, I typically check my phone and I get to see a picture of the littles dressed and ready for the day.  Dave always texts, "Happy Morning!" and, despite the pictures being anything but "picture perfect", they ALWAYS make me smile and more than often giggle as well :)  See for yourself...

(note.... pre-haircut and post-haricut pics for Mason.... he's definitely a short-hair kind of guy) :)





 If they're being particularly squirrely sometimes I'll get the carseat pic :)
(yes... they're both still rear facing in Dave's car - Griffin is still rear facing in our van as well) 

This one may be my favorite :)  Those are Buzz Lightyear goggles :)


Tuesday morning both of my super social kids were busy waving to landscapers across the street that they couldn't be bothered to look at Dave :)


Holding hands... I die! 

Yes... she's playing with the outlet :)  But she's wearing a bow and kind of looking - so we'll count it as a win. hahaha

Checking out her crazy brother...



Yesterday morning I got a pic from Kroger (they had to stop and pick up diapers on the way to Miss Lisa's) and he washed her hair before they left because she rubbed banana in it.  I'm telling you - I married up! :)

And look what I found....


This was their very first "Happy Morning" picture together!!!  It's from August of last year and I MAY have ugly cried just a bit when I saw it last night.  Because WHHHHHY to they have to grow up so fast?!?!?!

As I was writing this post Dave reminded me that this time next year the Happy Morning texts will just be of GG since Mason will be joining me and Luke at MCA.  HOW CRAZY IS THAT?!?!

I hope you all have a Happy Morning today and don't forget that tomorrow is Friday Favorites so get ready to link up with me, Erika and Narci to share your Favorites from the week!

  4. Your husband is the best! You guys seem like a wonderful team. What are your husbands hours at work? That pretty great that he can bring the kids to the sitter.

  5. That is so great to see your cuties rear facing!! I see so many bloggers post pictures of kids forward facing too early or with twisted loose straps. Makes me cringe!

  6. He washed and styled G's hair AND went to the grocery store all before 9:00 a.m. I hope you pranced around in your blardigan like the model on the website to show him your gratitude. :)

  7. All too much cuteness this early in the morning! So adorable. And I bet Dave washed her hair because he knew it would bother you as Mommy~that is one considerate hubby! Love all your posts and pix, everything is fun and you don't take yourselves too seriously! I think that is wonderful and I'm sure your kids are much better for it. Have a great day!

  16. Aww, that's a sweet man you have. I love that Griffin rubbed a banana in her hair. Sounds like our mornings, except I'd just wipe that 'nana out with a baby wipe and out the door we'd go! ;)

  20. The picture of Mason and Griffing holding hands is just too much. I don't know if there has been a more precious picture of the two of them!
