I have been working hard to get up before Florence wakes.
which by the way has been so stinkin hard 
I have found I am able to handle the days adventures if I start my morning quietly - time spent in the word, a cup of coffee without interruption and getting out my pajamas before she is up makes a world of difference.

 I also get to hear Florences chatter to her stuffed animals and to Mercy -who is sharing a room with Florence and kindly puts up with a great deal.  
Recently I heard from Florence:

I hear the birds!
Mercy! I hear the birds singing...
Do you hear them Mercy?
Auntie Mercy! Do you hear the birds??!
No response from Mercy.
I decided that it might be a good idea to get my girl up out of bed before her exuberance for something beautiful disrupted Mercy's sleep any further.

and I agree -- the simple act of getting dressed (not to mention coffee! and Scripture!) helps prepare one for a day with hungry, energetic little one/s....

(and I can't help but chuckle at your description of Florence -- reminds me of our lovely time with you guys in march)

What an alarm clock for you Mercy! It's the little things in life that are worth getting excited about, right? next it'll be rolly pollies!
