The first thing you should know about Lauren is that she is a runner. She runs every morning at 5am. Even in the dark. Which is pretty impressive.

The second thing is that she is a mom. To sextuplets. And that’s no joke either.

These are a few moments in their lives in a typical morning. Go see what she wrote about her mornings on the Houston Moms Blog.

This cracked me up. When he wakes up he hides and calls to her over the baby monitor. He was under the bed this morning. Sometimes he’s in the closet.

Every morning she texts a photo of the baby to her husband at work and to her in-laws in Pennsylvania. There are more photos texted to the grandparents as the day goes on. And a video or two. The grandparents + great-grandmother love getting the photos throughout the day.

The second in my series of what happens in people’s homes first thing in the morning. Morning routines, ordinary moments, beauty in chaos, beauty in the mundane.

This is the morning in the life of a stay-at-home mom to one 11-month-old. Her husband leaves in the wee hours to go to work, before the two of them are up. We tried to time my arrival for a little before the baby usually wakes up, and managed to hit that just about exactly. I walked in the door and hadn’t even set my camera bag down when the first peep came from the bedroom. It’s a relaxing, slow-paced, mom-and-baby morning.
