The Breakfast Table

Each morning the boys and I sit down to have breakfast together. Jared is off to work by the time the boys wake so it is just the 3 of us. I don't always sit with them but the majority of the time I do and on this particular morning I focused on our little ritual that is breakfast.

For starters there is almost ALWAYS a little whining coming out of this one. He is NOT a morning person. He also usually has his blanket either around his shoulders or in his lap. This is a must and I am bummed that I didn't get it into the photo.

There is always a small (sometimes large) toy involved and it's usually a motor vehicle of some sort.

Sometimes a great deal of concentration goes into the "using the spoon" process and sometimes they pick it up with their hands. Alex is famous for picking it up with his hand and then placing it on the spoon.

and last but not least they put a little too much cereal in their mouths causing a bit of milk to dribble. I mean what would breakfast be without a little milk on your chin?

That is so cute! We've been working on getting the spoons from the bowl to the mouth with the oatmeal on it and not on our walls!
