As I am sitting here writing this, Carter is still in his bed. Not asleep but just lounging. You see, he is exactly like his mama - he LOVES taking a slow, relaxing, snuggly time getting up in the mornings. Unfortunately for him, his brother is the COMPLETE opposite and is tearing down the house in 5 seconds after his eyes pop open in the mornings. So today, Evan and Jeremy left for school and work and Carter had not awakened yet. So I have been extremely careful to be as quiet as possible to let him sleep in for once. Especially since he has been unusually "2 year old brat like" the last couple of weeks (and I am hoping a good restful night and morning may help!!)
It is now 9:15 and he has been awake for over 30 minutes, but instead of asking to get out of bed or jumping around (which by the way he HAS NEVER done- weirdo), he is laying there rubbing his blankie on his nose, cozied up with his pillow pet and has not made a peep (YES, I do have a video monitor hence the reason why I know what he is doing ;-)). The sun is shining through his window onto his bed and he is as relaxed as relaxed can be!
So as much as I love the quiet lazy morning, Carter I believe is enjoying it much more!!
