Morning Light

My favorite thing to do as soon as I get out of bed in the morning is to go around the house and open all the blinds to let in the morning light. I love how the light floods the rooms and I feel instantly awake. I love how the sleepy faces of my children glow as they come out of their rooms, rubbing their eyes and blinking in the brightness. (Well, at least the two littlest faces glow. The three older faces sort of glare at me.) I grabbed my camera and made good use of the light this morning and these are the results.






At one point, James' glow turned to glisten. He started dumping the cereal out of his bowl and then cried when I fussed at him to stop.


Glistening didn't last long. Not sure what to call this except maybe "snips and snails and puppy dog's tails..."


Back to glowing.

Love the pictures! I think he looks like his Dad. BTW, email me some pics (and how much you want for it) of your carrier to wesjoymcdonald@aol.com. I have bought a baby bjorn since the sling pic at our Goodwill and really like it, but may also be interested in yours. Is it one size fits all?
