Of a Morning

The birds are singing this morning and the sun is just rising beyond the trees.
It seems like the birds were quiet all summer, and now that fall is upon us, they've tuned their voices once more.
I like a quiet morning, alone with the tea kettle warming while the rest of the family sleeps.

It's a rare situation and doesn't last long. "I found you," says Hattie, still rubbing the sleep from her eyes.

And the tenor changes. I'm no longer just a girl in the quiet, but a mama in the morning routine.

Being a mama is the joy of my life, but it's pleasant to sometimes be just a girl. To relish the quiet, before a busy day starts racing along.


By the way, we took Adele to her six-month check up yesterday and found her to be throughly growing. :) She's in the 75th percentile for length and head circumference, and 50th for weight.

Those percentiles are a little funny. If you say without much thinking, you might say that Adele is 75% longer than all the other babies - and of course, that wouldn't be true at all.

  1. Oh my goodness, in the first picture with Hattie and Adele, Adele looks just like Hattie's baby doll...I had to look again to see that she was real! Very beautiful!
