missed

Monday, April 2

Last night, Tyson called to say goodnight. We got to talk longer than usual because my mom put Everett to bed and frankly there's a lot that can be said when there's not a wiggly babe in your arms telling you he's all done. Towards the end of our conversation, Tys told me that a week spent away from the two of us was just really too long, that going through my clothes while sorting the laundry was somehow making him love me even more this week, and other sweet stuff that made my heart jump a little.

And this might sound weird or corny to some of you, but it just got me thinking about how nice it is to miss someone and be missed. That's it. Nothing profound. I'm just thankful for that simple human experience we get to have of missing someone. And how lucky I am to have a little part of that someone with me at all times in the form of a beautiful bald head and chubby tummy. Pretty gosh darn lucky.

This is so sweet and heartfelt. Thanks for sharing your human experience. :) My husband and I were long distance for many years, and when he would express how much he missed me, as painful as it was, it was so good to know he cared.

You are far from corny. You're appreciative. It's refreshing to see someone appreciate things that aren't tangible & that not everyone in the world experiences. Many take thoes things for granted. You are certainly blessed.

BTW. Your nail polish is so cute on your tosies!

Will you do a tutorial about how to tie a head scarf like that? I feel like dry shampoo may have met its match!

luvvleighb said...

Very cute! I love being missed... It's such a special feeling :)

{jaclyn} said...

You said it perfectly. My husband and I were long distance while dating and parting was always an emotional time. Now that we are married it's easy to forget those times but when I do recall them I am reminded of how much I appreciate him and how wonderful it is to know I get to see him everyday and crawl into bed with him every night.

thecoffeehouse said...

i love this. so true. knowing you are missed can be much needed once in a while.

Ashley said...

I also just spent a week away from my husband and we felt the same way. A week can feel very long, but it's so, so lovely when it makes you realize all the more how much you love someone! :)

It is a great feeling :)
I feel it every week of my life.

Fact: Being in a long distance relationship for 3 years is Touggghhh. But, you really learn to appreciate every second you have together.

You're definitely lucky to have such a beautiful little family. I can't wait to have a little person with me every day too :) (some day)
I hope the rest of your time with your parents and siblings is fantastic but that you get to hurry back to your baby daddy soon!
Oh, and I love your head wrap!!

I heartily agree. While time spent away from my hubs is really hard, there is something about talking on the phone and trying to put into words how much you miss each other. It's sweet, it's very sweet. xoxo
(oh yes, and that head wrap is awesome. you look so bohemian chic!)

So sweet! And so true... That's gonna be one cute reunion :)

I second Caitlin's question- what kind of wrap is that? I'm overwhelmed with how many there are to choose from!

On another note, my husband travels M-F every week and I couldn't agree with your post more. It's great to miss someone and to be missed... and even greater to be reunited.

i love your head wrap...where is it from?!

It's a love hate thing being away. You miss them like crazy but it makes you love and appreciate them so much more.

sooo sweet.

honestly, i've found it to be incredibly healthy for my relationship with my hubs to miss each other some... we always try to make sure that we spend time with our families and friends separately... and being apart for a couple of days really makes me value him that much more!!

s smallcomb said...

awww that is so sweet!
And that scarf, omw, too awesome!!

Ashley said...

Well said. It's easy to get so caught up in missing someone, that I forget what a blessing it is to have someone to miss. Thanks for the reminder.

Sarah and David said...

I love that you are rocking the baby wrap. Just be careful though, baby should be higher up on you and his bottom and legs should look more like he is sitting in a chair. With legs hanging like that it can cause his displacement. Keep up the baby wearing though!! Babies love being close to mommy like that!

Melody said...

That is so sweet. I totally get what you mean. My bf has been away for 3 weeks for work!! And I am missing him like crazy, I got that same heart jumping-feeling when he called and said, I just wanted to hear your voice cause I miss you..

Lilo said...

As always, you find a way to make me giggle and smile. And I'm thrilled to see another momma rockin' the baby wrap!

I think another poster already mentioned, Baby Boy needs to be lifted up higher and his bottom needs a bit more support so he's more seated than hanging. A good way to judge the height is never have him more than a kiss away from your face. Carrying him higher will also save your back from the mommy-arch. <3

Thank you for sharing your gorgeous family with us!

Catherine said...

Love the new look! And the adorable scarf in your hair. :)

Kristin Wolter-Canfield said...

I see some others have posted this already and I hate to rain on such a lovely post but your baby needs to be much higher up in that wrap. There are several tutorials online about proper placement and safe baby wearing. You should be able to kiss his head at all times.

GG said...

This photo is so sweet and I absolutely love how you are pulling off that scarf!

Leighana said...

hey you should post a tutorial on how to pull off a scarf headband!

That really made my day. My husband just took a new job and he'll be gone a lot. Today is day #5, with ten more to go. I know I miss him, but I also know that he misses our 13 mo. old son more. Tough, but like they say, "Distance makes the heart grow fonder." I sure hope that's true.

Idea: A how to on how to tie your scarf like that so you don't look like a pirate or a weirdo, or like you're trying to hard.

You have made it look so cute!! none of the above.

I'm sure it has been mentioned by another commentor (but I was not about to read all 116 of them to find out!). In some cultures, it is customary for married couples to spend a significant portion of time apart in order to allow room to miss each other. With that longing comes appreciation for the other!
