Mornings With Hope

Hope and Nana usually spend weekend mornings together. Between 6 and 8 AM is our special time. Often there are important questions to be dealt with ...



Who's a good dog?


Do you want to go outside?


Can you carry everything yourself?


Is there something on your head?


Did you put too many Cheerios in your mouth?


What should we do next?

I've always been an early riser but even if I wasn't I'd become one for Hope.

Happy Weekend Everyone

Hope is so precious! And she looks like she's got you wrapped around her little finger, a place I'd like to be!

Jay Simser said...

Thanks for those, When I saw your blog on my reader I was hoping for a "Hope fix" and you have not disappointed me. Give Hope a hug and one for you also. Have a great week-end.

Ron said...

Oh, what a delightfully heart-warming post to read before heading into work this morning!

"Did you put too many Cheerios in your mouth?"

HAHAHAHAHHAAHAHA! Oh, how ADORABLE, Dianne!

And even though I'm not an early riser I'd become one for Hope!

(((((( Hope )))))))

Thank you for sharing, dear lady!

Have a wonderful weekend!

X to you and the gang!

Trisha said...

Such important questions to answer so early in the day!

Linda said...

I always enjoy seeing Hope. I'll bet her mom & dad enjoy your gift of time, and you enjoy Hope so it seems to be a win win situation.

Jay said...

You guys have already had a full day before I even wake up!

Cherie said...

Sometimes I wish that I was a morning person, but then it would make it harder to stay up until 2 AM. LOL That was certainly a sweet sharing for us today. Have a wonderful weekend! Mwah! :)

Jackie said...

She was cute as a button from the day she was born, and she's just getting cuter! Obviously takes after her nana :)

ds said...

Love that "Cheerio face"!! She definitely knows how to get around her doting Nana (who I somehow believe doesn't mind...).

Mike said...

I'm with Jay.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

What a frabjous start for a morning! And thanks for sharing with us. I love the one with her "hat".

Linda Reeder said...

How fortunate you both are to have each other so close by, and to have this time together.

Granny Annie said...

Cute, cute photos and the "Cheerios" shot wins the day!

Hilary said...

Could there possibly be anything cuter than Cheerio Cheeks? I think not! She's absolutely adorable, Dianne. And your captions are wonderful. :)

Tracy said...

Awww, what sweet photos Dianne! thanks for bringing a smile tomy face this morning :)

Linda said...

Looks like every morning for you is a Hope-full one!

I just love the picture about the cheerios! Priceless!

We love LUNA said...

She is so sweet, a doll!
The last picture is adorable!

Morning is the best time with kids and pets. I love waking up with both in the house if possible. Everybody is all exuberant, fresh faced and smiley!

HermanTurnip said...

The Cheerios question is one we also grapple with quite a bit. And putting things on my head for Tyler really cracks him up. He's now gotten into the habit of putting things on his own head as a matter of course, which makes everyone who's not familiar with him laugh out loud when they see him do it. Heh.... :-)

Knight said...

Check out those cheeks! Are you sitting around in pj's equally as wild?

Akelamalu said...

Let's face it Dianne, we'd walk over hot coals for our grandkids wouldn't we? ;)

Reb said...

All very important questions, especially the last one ;)

Daryl said...

that face gets more beautiful as she gets older .. and she's so smart, her smart shines from every pore!

She's really growing! And gets prettier by the day!

A very nice share. I am ready for my weekend also.

Cricket said...

Love shot #5... heh, heh. I'm an early riser myself, but my children out me to shame. Up at 4:15 today, saw son #2 at 4:20 and he was ready to go.

I was ready for strong coffee and little else.

Congratulations on your potw.

Frank Baron said...

If that dear little darlin' was in my charge from 6-8 am, we'd be practicing our napping.

:)

ds said...

Back to say congrats on the potw. Well done!
