Syrus is two.
Syrus is my nephew.
Syrus could not be any cuter.
I spent the morning with my brother, his wife and their son Syrus walking around Northampton where they live. For Syrus’ second birthday I wanted to document a day in his life for him. They love walking into town and getting coffee and scones so that’s what we did.
Syrus has a thing for rocks. His pockets are always full of them and he has to stop (a lot) and pick up more.
Lindsay has done an incredible job helping Syrus with his own garden this summer. What a wonderful experience for a child to see the results of planting and watering vegetables. Sure, he eats things way before they’re ready and tramples some of the plants but that’s to be expected. It’s the experience that counts!
After a busy morning it was time for “lovey” back at home.
Here’s what I love:
blue crocs with a ladybug
pockets full of rocks
free Starbucks coffee stickers
Syrus’ huge smile
the ease with which Syrus walks around town
how random homeless people save him rocks because they know he loves them
my brother and his wonderful (growing) family
Don’t grow up too fast Syrus, being two fits you perfectly.
