everett and the food

Monday, June 4

 Update: For those who asked, my dress is Cynthia Rowley from Marshalls!
I think it's safe to say that Everett and his mouth have a pretty solid relationship with the world. Specifically, the things in the world that look like food. {Obviously iphones.} Fastest hand-to-mouth quick draw in the west my friends. You're kidding yourself if you think that a reach across the table for salt is anything but an exercise in baby mouth excavation. I mean honestly, just look at that attempted burger grab. The concentration! The furrowed brows! The expert arm extension! Pulling out all the stops with the famous double chin tuck as he moves in for the kill!

My favorite Honest Toddler on Twitter sums up my little quick draw's sentiments nicely:

Q: Dear Honest Toddler, How do you know if something is trash or food?
A: You don't know until you taste it. Mom cheers = food. She screams = trash (eat faster).

June 04, 2012 9:45 AM

HA! That honest toddler quote got me going! Those photos are lovely, as always, Sidney. And as always, it looks like your food life has been a whole lot tastier than mine. I should work on that :)

June 04, 2012 9:45 AM

Beautiful pics! Where is your dress/skirt from?? :)

June 04, 2012 9:45 AM

Haha! My son is doing the same thing these days - he'll snatch a drink outta of your hand in seconds. : )

June 04, 2012 9:47 AM

Where is your dress from? I LOVE it!

June 04, 2012 9:48 AM

bwahaha that quote from the Honest Toddler is hilarious. My son currently is obsessed with pulling banana peels out of the kitchen trash and chewing on them. eeeeeeeeeewww!

June 04, 2012 9:49 AM

i love honest toddler and i love the 'hand-to-mouth' quick draw phrase you used. so funny. same thing happening here. parker's gotten a lot of lint/grass in his day. probably (definitely) more than the little food he's eaten so far.

June 04, 2012 9:49 AM

This post made me laugh!!. I lost my phone yesterday only to find that one of my friend's baby was eating it. Haha I was relieved as I couldnt find it for hours and it took him just a few minutes. Ha

Lovely outfit. Xoxo

June 04, 2012 9:49 AM

Hahahah oh my gosh, this post. I'm looking loonie over here giggling to myself. :)



June 04, 2012 9:50 AM

That is just too cute! You and E both look amazing! :)

Is that Carolina Brothers in Va??! I love that place!! You should go to Middleburg one weekend in Va, super cute old town with a great restaurant called The Red Fox. George Washington used to stay there on his travels, it was built before he was even born. Its pretty awesome!

June 04, 2012 4:02 PM

You look stunning!

June 04, 2012 4:14 PM

Oh how I wish I could find cheerwine in Utah! That stuff is amazing -- and you guys look adorable! :)

June 04, 2012 4:15 PM

That burger looks scrumptious. I know how Everett feels; I can see the burger, but I can't eat it.

You rock the dress and denim jacket. I detest denim jackets but I gladly make an exception here. You always make it look so... right! Thanks for keeping us on our toes.

June 04, 2012 4:27 PM

this really just is too beautiful! xx


June 04, 2012 4:34 PM

Ohhh Syd, I love these pictures of you and baby Everett!!!!! He is such an adorable little soul! You look smashing Mama!

June 04, 2012 5:05 PM

Seriously... That baby looks exactly like I did as a child. Round and bald. Love him.


June 04, 2012 5:15 PM

lol. You are lucky to have a good little eater. Such a cute boy.

I also love your dress.
