I woke up this morning just before Mary Louise and David. David woke next and I gave him a teething ring to play with for a few minutes as I knew Mary Louise wouldn't be too far behind. David lay cooing and smiling at his toy. Mary Louise started to stir. When her eyes finally opened - wide as always - she immediately searched for her brother. An enormous sleepy grin spread across her face when she found him just across from her, playing quietly. She then turned her gaze to me and smiled even wider (if that's possible) and snuggled up on my shoulder for a moment before really getting active and wanting to start her day. What a sweet way to wake up- what a wonderfully simple happy moment!
