Morning Routine {Kalamazoo Lifestyle Photographer}

In an effort to continue to capture my children at home, I photographed parts of our morning routine. From my first quiet cup of coffee to the girls heading off to school, there are so many moments and memories that someday I might forget.

morning coffee

Leah’s chocolate chip pancake breakfast – this happened every morning.  Yes, EVERY morning.

Both girls are very good about brushing their teeth every morning.  In fact, they fight over who gets to go first…yes, for brushing their teeth.  sigh.  So we instituted “Hannah’s day and Leah’s day”. On their day they get to brush teeth first, get their hair done first, feed the dog, let the dog out of the kennel, pick their cup/plate, etc.  Sounds tedious but I wrote them on the calendar so they can check and see whose day it is.  It certainly cuts down on the arguing.  Gotta love the bed head!

Time to take care of the aforementioned bed head.  Leah has to get some doggy kisses before school. And somehow I managed to peek in on both of them while they were putting their socks on.

Leah leaves earlier than Hannah so Hannah’s routine is usually a bit slower.  She often has time to read before school.  Last thing before heading out the door is packing her backpack.  Folder? Check.  Lunch?  Check.  Snowpants? Check.  Gym shoes?  Check.

    I LOVE these Becky!! You will cherish these when they’re older. I need to get better about photographing the every day with something other than my iPhone!

    THanks! Libby Pruitt Johnson – that was my goal this year. Last year I did 365 on my phone but I knew I could do better.
