first family walk.

on eleanor’s 5th day of life, we went on our first big walk around capitol hill as a family of four (i like including kingsley in our family count) and introduced eleanor to the capitol. i guess technically our first family walk happened the night before when we walked to our friend’s house for the evening, then to CVS for juice and then to grab chinese take-out. but i’m going to just go ahead and count our walk to the capitol as our first walk as a family of four.

i love him.

it’s getting warmer outside, which means more walks as a family are around the corner. i’m really excited.
  1. Capital Hill is as beautiful as I remember it! I've been to D.C. twice for school and absolutely loved the city! Your pictures bring back great memories (: -thanks

    this is so adorable! one of my favorite things growing up was family walks around our neighborhood; whether we were biking or roller skating or just taking a stoll, it was fun to be together as a family. i hope your daughter will grow up to love it too!

  3. Ash Att

    you have such a cute family! little eleanor is adorable.

    have a great week!



  4. So beautiful! I love the city this time of year, just as the hint of spring starts whispering…

    Enjoy these days with your lovely family!


    how lovely. and everyone looks darling :). xo

  6. this is probably so random but i love that you included kingsley. so many of my friends or family members get a dog, love it to death but the second a baby comes the dog becomes a pain to them. i always hate it and it breaks my heart! i've even known some of them to sell the dog once the baby came. not because the dog showed any agression or anything like that but just bc all of a sudden theyd idnt have time for them or didnt want to deal with them:( so thank you:) and your family is the most precious thing ever!

  7. awesome.

    you look great :)

  8. oh my lordy, what a cute family! i hope to one day have one as cute as you guys :)

  9. Meg

    how cute that you get to cuddle little eleanor, while josh is in charge of cuddling kingsley :) you are such a beautiful family!

  10. you're so cute :) love the shades you're wearing :)
    p.s. i've been there! took a tour too! lol that's a long ways from this alabama guh's home! ;)

  11. I can't wait for walks! We just got our jogging stroller and no joke I have contemplated putting our dog in it for his walk just so I can take it around the neighborhood. With spring weather starting to slowly show up warm temps will be so great for our strolls. Such a beautiful family you have :)

  12. this makes me so happy to see! congratulations!
    your little family is adorable!
    God bless you!

    ps. how is kingsley with the baby?

  13. Congratulations! We just had our first little girl in August, and I remember our first walk like it was yesterday. So much fun! Blessings to you! ;) xo

  14. what a great stroller! everything's better when the sun shines!

  15. Alivia

    Kingsley looks like he has embraced the role of "protector." So cute!
    P.S. I love your hat!

  16. Aw the sweetest little Eleanor… :)

    I can't believe you had a baby 5 days ago! You look great, and your newest family member is precious:)

  32. K :)

    Precious blog. Sweetest little baby girl. Wonderful place for a first walk.

    When i saw your daughter's name it reminded me of the book my 10 year-old daughter (Lily) is reading about Eleanor Roosevelt. She was an amazing woman. What a wonderful moniker for a sweet little girl.

  33. Mrs. C

    The East Coast is so beautiful!!!! So is your family and loving the hat!!! Sidenote—get anything good for Chinese takeout. Always the best!!!

  34. your little family is beautiful! I also am curious about what kind of stroller you have… can't see the whole thing, but it looks too cute.

  35. so happy for you and your new family of 4! :) congratulations!

  36. becky

    This has made my day! Beautiful pictures, beautiful weather, beautiful family. I hope you and little Eleanor are doing well—and I hope Kinglsey isn't too jealous of all the attention she is bound to be getting!

  38. DianeSS

  49. how fun! you're little family is so beautiful and i can't think of anything better than a "family walk." we walk everywhere too and daydream about the day our little one will be here and we can push her in the stroller with us.

  50. amanda

    baby rockstar is just too cute! what a great first walk.

  51. Marfio

    You are the cutest mother of a 5 day old I have ever seen. The spring sunshine in DC is absolutely beautiful.

  56. Shannon

    so fun! Behr and I have yet to venture towards the capitol, but Union Station has been a frequent spot for us to run a quick errand! It is incredible toting around your very own child. I am completely smitten and end up talking to him the entire time! We are so bundled up, I probably look half crazy!

  57. A.

    I love the stroller! Can you tell us a bit about it? I'd love to get one like that!

  58. Such a fashionable mum! Congrats to you all!

  59. Kelsi

    I wish my bed looked as comfy as Eleanor's stroller does!

  80. To those who asked (and sorry I didn't get here sooner to reply), the stroller is the Xplory by Stokke.

    Hooray for walks!

  81. It's inSANE how cute of a mom you are. I live in DC too and was doing a very similar thing the other day! My boyfriend lives right around Eastern Market. Today's weather is even better! Eleanor picked a good time to be born : )

  82. Kelsey

    a blog is the new photo album. you're going to be so happy you have this later in life.

  83. pretty sure you guys are the cutest family ever.

  84. How blessed you are to have your mother visit and…how lucky your mom is to be able to do so!

  85. Lauren

    You are one of the prettiest moms out there! Seriously. How do you do it all?

  86. You guys are an adorable family & you look ridiculously amazing for 5 days out! Is that the Orbit? Do you love it? She looks so cozy in there!!
