Dylan and Caitlyn are almost always awake before Meghan, who continues sleeping peacefully in my bed long after they're up and playing. But the moment she's awake, no matter what they're doing, they stop and pile into bed with her for hugs and kisses. She just eats it up, too, loving every bit of their precious affection. Watching them makes my heart ache with a fullness of maternal love and pride, and it occurred to me this morning that it would be priceless to have some photos of their morning snuggle time. Here is just a small sample of what I am blessed to enjoy every single morning. It is, undoubtedly, the best way to start my day!
