a few little moments that I've had the pleasure of experiencing recently

Thursday, March 22

Skirt: Gap, Top: UO, Sweater: JCrew, Belt: JCrew, Ring: Etsy
 Holding hands with Tyson in the car. After a baby, the busy pull of life and the familiarity that comes with being together with someone for a while, somehow when we get around to holding hands now it seems much sweeter than the excitement of holding hands when we were on our very first dates

Quiet conversations with my wide-awake baby in a very dark house
 
That time last week when a receptionist asked me and my 15 year old voice if I was covered by my parent's insurance

A weekend crepe fix when we have nothing else in our fridge because Saturday is for much more important things not involving grocery shopping

Drinking a delicious bottle of cold chocolate milk through a straw. I really don't think I'll mind joining in during Everett's PB&J and milk stage once it hits

A genuine, real, bubbly, delicious baby laugh that can't contain itself when I kiss his tummy

When two extremely gigantic bees flew very close to me and Everett and I realized for the first time that my mother's instinct really exists and makes me a lot braver than I actually am

When Tyson pulls us both close and says c'mere little family

Lisa @ honibun@blogspot said...

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! Makes me want to have a baby and a husband and some chocolate milk!!!!

JessicaLynn said...

I loved the parents insurance thing lol that's classic. After two babies holding hands with my hubby is few and far between and yes it is still so sweet :)

Berni said...

Your days sound so perfect & your cute little family is amazing. I've been following for ages and it's been so lovely to watch you grow from just you and Tyson to your pregnancy and now your beautiful baby boy. God bless you all! xo

Megan said...

Crepes are the best! And so are you and your adorable family :)

kjjohnson155 said...

My boyfriend thanks you for showing us the source of that beautiful ring, because I am currently convincing him that I NEED one! Your positive outlook makes you even more beautiful than you already are! Keep it up, Momma! Oh, and I am apparently also 15 according to most strangers ;) but hey, I don't think we will complain much when we're 40 and still look 20! Yeah? I'm hoping that's the way it works ;)

CessOviedo said...

That is so sweet! ... and the outfit too! Funny thing is I'm also wearing a yellow cardi on my post today, now feeling inspired by your look!

Tina said...

Amber said...

"Lisa: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! Makes me want to have a baby and a husband and some chocolate milk!!!!"

Ditto! I'll take a double on the chocolate milk and the baby.

Aw, love this post.

Ashley said...

The "c'mere little family" is my favorite. So sweet :)

Maria Camila said...

Awe that's all so sweet & 15 year old voice lol I am the same way.

Andrea Dickherber said...

Sweet thoughts :)
I can agree especially about holding hands. It seems like after being with some one for years, holding hands sometimes just feels like the sweetest, more heart-warming thing.

Had the receptionist thing happen to me too, that's funny :)

Crepes = yum! They are so easy to make but so delicious.

Katie said...

Love your hair color- its gorgeous. And I love the baby giggle- my little guy has just started giggling a little bit and it is absolutely hysterical. I love it more than anything!

Joy said...

Every single one of those things made me smile even bigger. So cute! Also, not to sound like a creeper - but is that a new/different "engagement" ring?

MrsMcComas said...

I know that feeling about holding hands, in a different sense though. My husband is away alot and when he gets into town and we are riding in the car and we hold hands, it is such an awesome moment just to know we are side by side. Holding hands while dating never felt that awesome.

Agnes of {anna+agnes} said...

what a cute 'little family' you are indeed! I am sometime self conscious that people still think i'm 15 based on the way i sound/look, i swear people i'm a big kid!

Lace And Tulle said...

your outfit is perfect!!!

Leah said...

Awww that last one just made me smile :) I can't wait for that moment. You're hair looks great btw.

Sara said...

hi! your hair looks great - who does your color?

Keri said...

"c'mere little family" sweetest thing, EVER!

ECoop said...

Chocolate milk? When is this not a good choice? but with a straw....so delicatessen! Guess I know what I'm ordering next time i'm out. Maybe even ask for a wine glass to pour it in.....Oh should I dare?

Jen Pilchak said...

I thought- "she dyed her hair? when did she do that?" of course, when I was on vacation and not keeping up with my google reader. It looks great! It's such a pretty shade.

Jocee said...

i think the first one just made me giddy. the third, however, had me rolling on the floor laughing.

A "cheery" disposition said...

your hair really does bring out your eyes! and chocolate milk is the best and even better threw a straw :)

"Quiet conversations with my wide-awake baby in a dark house" beautifully written. The small moments are the ones you never forget. My "baby" is almost eight and I can still remember those moments like they were yesterday. Great outfit..I love the bright yellow.

Beautiful as usual Syd and I agree with everyone else; the dark hair makes your eyes pop! BTW after 28 years I still get butterflies holding my wife's hand. Keep loving that kid of mine. It's amazing how love works if you never give up on it.

brookem said...

I'm LOVING your new hair color! Could you do another tutorial (yanno, in alll your free time?!) on how you get your waves? I watched the one from when your hair was shorter, and wondering if you still do it the same way now that it's longer (with the braid overnight, etc.)?

Kimberly Bonham said...

You are just beautiful! Look at those eyes! Wowza!

kelley blake said...

Ok, I need a hair tutorial! Is this the same way you did it in the "Wavy Hair Tutorial"? Share your secrets :)

Haley Childers said...

The Ls said...

I love this outfit!!!!

Michelle said...

Such a great outfit! I actually ran across a black maxi skirt similar to this over the weekend and bought it because I always see all of the cute ways you wear yours!

What shoes do you wear with yours? I never see your feet in the posts you use with this skirt....If I am standing still you can't see my feet/shoes, but when I walk you REALLY see them bc of the skirt being sorta fitted and stretchy....suggestions??

Thanks! XOXO Michelle

aww the "c'mere little family" really tugs on the heart strings! so sweet.

Jackie B. said...

Such a sweet list Sydney! It's really important to stop and take in the little things life has to offer that we can so easily take for granted sometimes. I have been following your blog for a while and I find it so inspiring! Besides the great fashion content, I love peeking into your life as a wife and new mom. If you get a chance, I would be honored if you checked out mine. I started it after I got married and has been a way to record our marriage and new life together. I think you'd like it! -JB.
