Meet Miles!

| , ,

He’s here! I’d like all of you to meet my sweet baby boy, Miles Anthony Sye. I’ll be sharing his birthstory in an upcoming YouTube video but I thought I would introduce him to everyone first. My father’s middle name was Anthony so we knew that we wanted to incorporate that in somehow, but struggled with deciding on a first name for almost the entire pregnancy. We had thought about ‘Miles’ for a name a few times but it never seemed like the winner until about a month ago. I mentioned it again to Stan and we both looked at each other and knew it was the one. 
I went into labor late Friday evening and he was born at 9:41 a.m. on Saturday, November 4. He weighed in at 6 lbs and was 19.5 inches long with almost a full head of hair! He has a very gentle and calm demeanor and my mom, Stan and I (and Elmo) are just crazy about him. I’ve shared a few more pics and videos of him on Instagram and Insta-stories though I’m trying not to overdo it (which is nearly impossible because he’s so cute!).
I actually had my mom and Stan help me put up all the holiday decorations so it would be done when I went into labor. And coming home to a festive environment was the best way to welcome Miles. As we speak, I am sitting on the couch typing this post while Miles is snuggled next to me and Elmo is curled up right next to him and the Christmas tree is all lit up next to the couch. I may even turn on the fire tonight and take this entire scene over the top cozy. LOL
Thank you to each and every one of you for all the kind words, supportive comments and uplifting messages sent my way during these past 9+ months. Pregnancy can be such a nervous and stressful time but I feel grateful to have received so much positive encouragement!

Waiting on Baby

Sweater – H&M | Jeans – AG (maternity) | Boots – Sam Edelman (the most perfect classic suede boot that comes in a TON of colors!) | Bag – Saint Laurent (amazing dupe here) | Hat – Brixton

I wore this outfit this past Friday and when we took these pictures, Stan and I were debating whether baby boy would come during the weekend or closer to my actual due date (Nov 9th). Well, he decided to make his debut Saturday morning, though I went into labor late Friday evening. So while I am super happy to not be pregnant anymore, I do adore looking at these photos thinking that only a few hours later our lives would change forever. I’ll be sharing a full birth story on my YouTube channel soon, and doing a quick birth update announcement post this week so stay tuned for those! However if you follow me on Instagram, then you know I have already shared so many details on our little guy.
But before I wrap up this post, I feel it necessary to ensure that my absolute favorite part of this outfit gets your attention. LOL Last year, I was crazy for these Sam Edelman ankle boots and wore them (and still do) all the time (remember this post, this post, this post and this post?). So the equivalent of them this year (in my fondness for them, not necessarily style or shape) are these Corra booties (more colors here)! The shape is chic and appropriate for jeans, skirts, dresses, etc, the heel is high but surprisingly easy to walk in, the colors are all wearable and the price point is so great for how expensive they actually look. Sam Edelman has quickly become one of my favorite shoe brands for more affordable styles that still manage to look expensive when on. Here are a few more of his styles that caught my eye: these lace-up boots are currently sitting in my cart, these rain boots seem like a foul weather must have (and are only $55!), these leopard pumps are pretty and preppy at the same time, these are great flat OTK boots and these flat boots are a great staple that I see them put out each year.

Shop more H&M sweaters I am loving:

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘widgets.rewardstyle.com’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);
