Seriously! (plus)

**Author’s edit: after I posted this, I added a comparison pic at the bottom. Be sure to check it out.

Seriously, how cute is this?! My friend Beth MADE this little tutu and headband for Sydney. I finally remembered to take advantage of the nice weather and get a photo-op before it got too cold. I learned this with Carson, but it is still funny to me how crazy in-love I can be with this little person when I was crazy mad last night when she was waking up so often. (We’ve turned a lousy page in the sleep book, and she’s been getting up 3-4 times a night, rather than her usual 1.) But when I see her smiling away, I just want to eat her up! Again, I know these all look the same to you, but they are different to me! Plus, I want to give the grandparents ample choices for their new desktop wallpaper.

That little tongue melts me!

Please look closely or enlarge to see her left eyebrow arched. I love it.

Whoa! Check this stuff out!

Here’s a comparison pic of Carson and Sydney, both at 4 months. I hope they continue to look like each other!


  1. SO CUTE!!! Did you take these pictures? They’re amazing!
    Also, about the sleep thing, we’ve been having the same problem. She was sleeping ten hours straight for at least a month, then about two weeks ago she started waking up several times a night. SO frustrating. We think she’s teething but no teeth yet….do you have any other theories?

  2. TOO cute! I am so glad you posted them all! I love each and every picture! I wish I could pick that little ballerina up right now and give her a big hug!

  3. Well, Jennifer (Anne Geddes)Tompkins…You had your father melting over here in south Salem over these pics. Me too. I just can’t stop staring at them and grinning. Now which one for our desktop wallpaper?

  4. She is SO cute! You’re quite the photographer – and her outfit is priceless! Sorry to hear about the sleeping thing – that’s so hard. Hang in there!

  5. Seeing these made me sad that I will never have a little girl. But, oh my GOSH Sydney is a DOLL. Love the pics! -Kel 🙂

  6. Oh my goodness…so cute:) I love the one of her checking out her tutu:)
    So sad about her waking up so much at night!! Was she waking up to eat, or just waking up and not able to go back to sleep?? 🙁 Hope I’ll see ya tomorrow.

  7. i echo the comments… she’s a doll. i love the shot of her and carson too. they nearly look like the same person. it’s good to hear these stories of how she melts you.

  8. Dang it: you’re going to make my maternal clock start ticking again!! But I’m sure a bit of single-parenting this week will knock the wind out of that sucker. 🙂 Precious: just precious.
