my sisters and my little brother.

it meant the world to me to have my three sisters and little brother here over the weekend. i love these kids so much and enjoyed spending time with them. sure, technically they were here to meet eleanor more than hang out with me, but still. i’m glad we’re all so close and am really excited to see how their relationships with little eleanor develop and grow over the years. she is a lucky lady to have such sweet aunts and uncles, on both sides of the family, in her life.

  24. Autaven

    You are such a beautiful family!! I'm honestly jealous, I'm an only child and I would now never have just one child, it seems cruel. Lovely pictures! :)

  25. naomi, you have a beautiful family and a gorgeous little girl!

    Question: Are you breast feeding? If you are, how is it working out for you?

  26. loooove your polaroid wall. and the pics of kingsley are pretty special. :) oh and eleanor yawning?! priceless.

  27. Sophie

    Great pictures, you (all) look so happy :)

    Too bad you don't have kind of a "blog-history" (where you can read the posts month by month – i would love to read the beginnings of your blogging-time and scrolling back by using the Previous-Entries-function is so unhandy)

  28. Has a more beautiful family ever existed?

  29. all of you have that SAME smile!
    how sweet! :D

  30. Such sweet photos. I have no idea why, but that one of your little brother holding Miss Eleanor, and the look on his face made me tear up a bit.

  31. So great! And those photos of Kingsley made me laugh! :D How's he taking having a new little baby in the house?

  32. You and your siblings look so alike, it's crazy! Your little brother is adorable! Not to mention Eleanor, gorgeous!

  40. Amy

    Adorable family!

    I checked out those cute baby hair flowers that you link to – do they really stick to their heads? What do you use to stick them??

  41. I have three sisters too and it's the best. Don't have a cute little freckled brother though. Kinda wish I did!

    p.s. You are as stunning as ever and that little babe of yours?! Sweet as pie.

  42. these pictures are great!

    where do you get all of your knit hats, if you don't mind me asking?

  43. MellyB

    I love sisters! I have six sisters and a brother and I love to see how other siblings relate to each other. We have so much fun when we're together. We have a sisters' blog, you should check us out!

  110. Becky H.

    You have such a beautiful family! … and your daughter gets cuter and cuter with every post!

  111. Whitney

    They're all SO good! But the one of Eleanor and your brother? Beautiful!
    Stroller? So futuristic and neato looking!

  112. Linds

    I have a question too!
    I've been trying to find a way to display my polaroids in my home. We have hundreds! How are yours mounted? What did you use to stick them up there? Are they framed by anything? It's hard to tell from the picture. But I'm so thrilled to see someone display polaroids. How did you do it? Guide me!
    P.S. Beautiful family!

  113. The love tween you & your family is so touching. Congrats on Elenanor, she is a beauty.
    Quick Q- how do you get the bows to stay on? I can't seem to get them to stay on my 6month old Moxie Mae.

  114. Megan

    Whatta gorgeous family!

  115. Kelsey

    it's great you have such a tight knit family

  116. Josh

    @linds, i just used a small piece of painters tape on the back of each polaroid. it doesn't harm them and they stick really well. they aren't framed, just placed beside each other.

    @mommie to moxie mae, i use honey. just a little drop. i find it sticks better than anything else i've tried.


  117. Josh

    oh no! i'm logged in as josh, but this is naomi.


  118. sheena

    you girls are absolutely gorgeous!

  119. Cambria

    All of your sister and you have the same smile!! Among other things! you girls are so stunning!! :)
