Cup of Coffee and a Newspaper (a.k.a. Milk and a Book)


This is how I have started my mornings over the past week... a cup of coffee for me and a cup of milk for this one.  A good read and we were all set.


If that's not a smile to wake up happy to, I don't know what is!  I love my little early riser!  He and Noni share their love of the early hours, along with Pop Pop.  Early bird gets the worm!  Hee hee... or the beautiful smiles and laughter.


I was able to make Story Time with Alex at his local Library.  I love old libraries... I love books... and I am so very happy that this Little Man does, too.  He never tires of bringing us books to be read.


Little Man and Momma shakin' their eggs along to the songs!


At the end of story time, the kids get to float the balls on a colorful parachute.


Running underneath at the end seems to have been his favorite part.


And, this... sweet, sweet baby-to-come was among our greatest blessings to be thankful for this holiday.  He or She will be making a summer arrival and we know Little Man will be an awesome big brother!!


Amanda and Jerry made a wonderful Thanksgiving for Pop Pop and me.  I am deeply grateful.  I hope each of you  had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well.  I'll soon be around to see what everyone has been up to.  It's amazing how much you can get behind in a week!  LOL!  And then, there is Christmas to get ready for!!  Blessings to all!

Tanna, your little man is just too cute! I guess we both got to enjoy time with our grandbabies. Rachele has started talking non stop now. Don't understand it all, but I guess she knows what she is saying. I know you can't wait for number 2. Thanks so much for the very sweet comment!!

Congrats!! My daughter is due in January with her third child who will be a boy named Corwin. I love the red tree in your last pic!

From the Kitchen said...

Your post really warms my heart this morning! What a sweet early morning partner you have. That smile would be delightful to wake up to. The photo of him at the library brings back wonderful memories of my own trips to (maybe the same one) the library as a child. The colorful tree beside the front porch--have I passed that porch? Probably so--many times. And, another sweet baby on the way!!

Best,
Bonnie

What a fun post! Full of love and books! Isn't reading to little ones the best? I loved reading to our boys as they grew up and now enjoy doing so with their kids. Someone once said that when you read to a child he or she really has your uninterrupted time ... as you really have to focus on them. :-)

Jill said...

OH! Such fun. Alex is precious in his cozy blanket sleeper...HOW I LOVE THEM! Won't he be a HOOT this year at Christmas!?? He will LOVE all the fun. And, a new grand baby is the best news of all you have been droppin' the hints for awhile!! ;)

CONGRATS to ALL!

Katherine said...

Amanda said...

Little Man definitely likes his morning milk and book. And hanging out with his Noni and Pop Pop are the cherry on top - the spice of life. I know he'd do it everyday if he could.

We sure did enjoy the visit. Looking forward to Christmas. Love you!

California Girl said...

He looks so happy in your photos. Is he always cheerful? I love that!

I also love the Maple, Japanese Maple?, in front of your home or someone's home (can't tell. Beautiful perfect red.
