Early Morning Dance Party

Graham is my very early riser. Although it is nice to have some one on one time with him each day, he could sleep just a bit later and still have his Mommy to himself before Amelia wakes up between 9:30 and 10:00. This morning I had the radio on as I cleaned up from breakfast round #1 (Amelia eats brunch when she finally wakes up) and Graham heard a familiar song. He quickly grabbed a few accessories and proceed to have what he called a dance party in the kitchen.

When Amelia woke up at 10:00, Graham met her with her mouse ears and encouraged her to have her own dance party in the family room. I guess he didn't want her to miss out just because she doesn't wake up before the sun like he does!

When I look at these pictures of their genuine smiles and ability to have fun with even the most simple activity, I'm almost in awe of my little family. It really wasn't that long ago that we traveled to the other side of the world to bring each of them home and although they each processed their big move differently, they were both understandably and visibly terrified. Now, here we are today, and I have two happy, healthy, well adjusted kids. How did we ever get so lucky!?!
