early mornings

rodney can't seem to get out of his baby schedule. and when school was still in it was kind of difficult, but once summer came it was driving me crazy. he goes to bed between 5-5:30pm. i know, i know, crazy talk. 
but that means he wakes up between 5:30-6am.

i decided to turn lemons into lemonade, and instead of moaning and lying on the floor in my pajamas while he mauls me with toys and banana slices, we go for a walk. we walk several times around the house and then go swing. phoebe is always up by 7am. whether she goes to bed at 10pm or 6pm, she will be awake right on 7 o clock on the dot. the weather is still nice up until about 7:30. so we swing and swing and swing and catch roly poly's and explore. 
this morning i did a crossfit workout while rodney was swinging. he laughed and laughed at me, i'm glad i'm so entertaining. 

it's easy to get cabin fever around here from july to september. i highly recommend getting out early in the a.m. don't worry though, by 10am i'm sleeping on the couch while rodney naps and the girls kill each other with water color brushes.
i'm so grateful for my peaceful mornings.

I remember doing jumping jacks in the kitchen when I was 9 months pregnant with Jackson and Cade just laughing and laughing and laughing. Only a few more years and then we're not funny anymore, we're embarrassing.
