s i m p l e

The best moments in life are usually quite simple. Which is why I'm taking a moment to write down all the simple things that truly are the best, and all to fleeting. Time just isn't fair and these are the little things I always want to remember.

Like...

... the times that Mia rarely sleeps with us, she has to be touching me in some way. Whether it's her hand, or her knees ;) She's always making physical contact with me even though she doesn't realize it!

... the feel of Eric's hand in mine. I've noticed that we are becoming that couple who is too busy to hold hands, etc while out in public. Let's be real here, one of us is constantly chasing after Mia while the other is catching up with our bags and everything else in tow, ha ha! So sneaking in a little PDA when we get the chance gives me the butterflies (cheesy alert)!

... rompers. Dressing Mia in general is the best, I live vicariously through her mini sized items ;) But I am especially in love with her rompers and I'm quickly realizing that they will be 100% impractical when the days of potty training begin. So I'm soaking up the cuteness now and trying to have her wear them down to threads that are barely hanging on by the time we have to ditch them!

... the way Mia tries to prolong me tucking her in after we sing our songs and say our prayers for bed by pointing out all the pictures in her room as if she's never seen them before. She gets SO excited when she sees "mommy!" "daddy?!" "BABY!" (baby Mia) and has to point us out in every single picture. She thinks I'm clueless as to what she's trying to avoid... HA!

... watching a movie. Watching movies or shows with my people is definitely one of my favorite things as it ensures quality cuddle time with Eric and/or Mia. We really monitor how much the TV is on for Mia, so we soak up all the cuddles when it is family movie time! But goodness, how I miss watching shows/movies together with Eric. We have not watched one movie since our move, and maybe a total of 4 shows together? Life is just so busy that these quiet, lazy moments of leisure are few and far between.

... listening to Mia as she excitedly throws her arms in the air and yells "DA!!!" (ta-da) or "I DID IT!" It's the littlest things that make her so proud of herself... and of course my heart can barely hold it together while trying to burst with pride, ha ha.

... hearing her sweet voice tell us "luh yoooooou!" That will never get old. Oh how we LOVE love in this house :)

P.S. If I'm absent from blog land today it's only because I'm incredibly naive and I always fall for everyone's April Fool's jokes :) Happy first day of April... and happy pranking ;)

Aww! I love this! Mia is super sweet! Hallie started putting her hands together when we pray at night, that's got to be my favorite "simple moment" lately!

Oh these are so cute. Soak it all up, lady! Simple moments are the best! And I'm a cheese ball with you, I love holding hands with my husband!

Grayson's kisses have always been open mouthed and on the nose! haha! It's so sweet, but it gets a little messy and sometimes he also bites! OW! We're working on closed mouth kisses with better aim these days! haha! She is adorable and I love all these little things! :)

She's so very sweet! It's awesome that you take the time to write down the little things in life. That's what life is really - a series of little moments with a few big events every now and then.

I love the last picture of you and her! So precious! Too often we forget to appreciate the little things. I think it's great to write it down once in a while to remember.

Chastity Beene said...

So sweet! I agree that hearing your little one say I Love You is the best thing ever.

Karra said...

Once she has potty training mastered you can go back to rompers!!! and the picture of y'all is the sweetest. ever!

I love that you captured such sweetness in your "simple" post! I agree that often the simplest moments of life are the most special, and yes, altogether too fleeting! Gotta soak up every moment!! <3 xo

hahaha me too, I fall for everything! Maybe I should just get out of BL right now!!!

The simple things are the best though. I finally started jotting things down on a little notepad because I forget everything.

I am so right there with you Mama! Time goes by too incredibly fast and I want to remember everything, no matter how small or big they might be. I love this post and I adore that picture of you two!

OMG I love this girl! Its so awesome to just stop and appreciate the simple things in life. The things most people so often take for granted. Especially things when Mia is little. Man they grow up too fast...and I dont even have kids haha! That last picture of you and her is seriously the sweetest!

Kasey Sutgrey said...

I absolutely love the picture of you and Mia kissing! I agree the things that seem so little and simple are the most important things! And I am the same with Chloe, I love dressing her like a little doll and I secretly would wear most of her clothes!

Laura Marie Keenan said...

Oh the prolonging of bedtime!!! I typically loathe all the stops that Liam will try to pull out, but I truly know that I will miss these days, eventually. :-)

Caroline At Windy City Chic said...

I can just picture Mia with her arms in the air, SO cute!! That's very sweet about you getting butterflies when Eric holds your hand. Sometimes you just need moments like that. :-) I hope that you have a lovely day!!!
