p.s. thanks for all your advice here

    I've driven down to florida from minnesota twice! good luck with the baby girl being sweet and content!

    i'm not sure what direction you're coming from, but try to avoid the atlanta area/radius.. we've had trouble (seeming unsafe) both times going down and stopping to use a bathroom..

  32. Gussy

  33. Oh my goodness, that sweet little face is too much!

    Good luck on the drive! I hope it goes well!

    It's so warm here today… and muggy, but I'm in Orlando, so if you're heading to North Florida you will probably have beautiful weather!

  34. Emily

    I'm in love with her fluffy chins in the bottom picture. What a cutie!

  35. THE CUTENESS!

  36. ohhh what a cute faces! i'm crossing my fingers that the first face is happening on the drive…even though the second face is just as cute!

    have a great trip!

  37. eleanor is so precious! the last picture makes me smile!!!

  38. We'll be attempting a 20+ hour road trip in a couple of months–stop and go, thankfully. But I'm still eager to hear how it goes!

  39. rebecca

    haha. poor baby girl. good luck to you guys!

  40. becky

    I hope you have a lovely trip—and I hope that little girl smiles as much as she can. Such a long drive! I hope you both keep rested and content as well as she does. Stay safe!

  41. Oh my goodness, those photos are incredibly adorable.

  42. Bridget

    oh my gosh, her squishy sad face is so stinking cute.

    and also, you are totally motivating me to not let my normal life stop when baby boy comes in july. i like that you still went to nyc, going to florida… too many women are like "i cant pee until my husband comes home bc i have a BABY!" as you show, tis not true ladies, tis not true…

  43. Andrea

    Have a great trip! I love roadtrips -that would be so hard to have a sad baby the whole way. I'm sure it will go great

  44. i have been wondering how babies fare on long roadtrips… looking forward to your recap!

  45. Kathy

    Even though her sad face is so squishy and cute, I hope for your sakes she's a smiley baby all the way down!

  46. HT

    I just found your blog not too long ago. I love your style and your daughter is adorable. Good luck on your drive!

  47. I thought of another tip, I hope it isn't too late for you to try it. Ear plugs for the driver- cuts down on distraction/frustration and you can take turns who drives so you each get a break from the crying. It made me feel better to be the one comforting the baby in the back but I always worried my husband was going to crash!

  48. Marlee

    we have to drive down to FLA once a month for my husbands' job. My son is 2 and of course goes with us. Just make sure you change her diaper more frequently than you usually do – sitting in the car seat can give them diaper rash really easily. And bring powder! It is so humid down there. Have fun!

  49. i just discovered your blog & i absolutely LOOOOVE it. :)

    you are such a beautiful mom and you have a beaaautiful family! so lucky to have a little girl, bc i want a babygirl so bad! haha

    i'm your newest follower. hope the drive went well! i know how that is… we used to travel back & forth from LA to SF. but it's only about 7 hrs. haha

    would love to hear from you and have you as a follower as well :)

  69. Kelsi

    her chubby cheeks and chin kill me! she is SO precious! love her.

  70. Best of luck. You know, I found that my son had the best temperament when he had a warm cloth on his feet. I know it sounds silly but for some reason if he was warm he was calm. I just let the sun heat a washcloth and wrapped his feet in it.
