over the weekend…

as the weekend began, josh said to me, “i feel like for mother’s day, we should celebrate all weekend with what you love most… food.” oh that man, he knows me so well. and so, that’s exactly what we did. we ate. all my favorite things, at all my favorite places (yes, this means we maybe ate pizza three times this past weekend… but hey, please tell me i’m not the only one who obsesses over one specific food until i’m sick of it, you do too? i knew it!) these photos are from 2amy’s, which is still my most favorite spot in d.c. for pizza. and thanks to husband, for being willing to eat so much pizza with me in a 48 hour span.
anyway, to sum it up, i really enjoyed my weekend. but how can i not with this cute little drooling smiley face? she sure has stolen her mama’s heart.

  30. Jessica

    Alright your baby is adorable. Her smile and drools are just too much. Aren't you even more grateful to know what we know about families now that you've met this sweet little one? Motherhood seems to be treating you well – you look so relaxed and joyful (and slender), in that last photo especially.

  31. Motherhood becomes you! You look so happy. Baby girl always looks like she's having the time of her life. The smiles and drools. You know you're doing something right when a baby is that HAPPY!

    Happy Mother's Day!

  32. You look so great and happy (fancy glasses! Looks so good on you!) and your beautifull daughter is so cute. Love the chubby baby arms and legs ;)Have a nice day :)!

  33. So it's official… you have the cutest little girl in the WORLD!!!

  34. Hi Naomi!

    Have you seen the Google homepage today? The Google Doodle is an animated tribute to Martha Graham – I thought of you instantly when I saw it, as the artwork reminded me so much of the "Thought of You" animated dance film you posted a few months back! After a bit of research I realized that the same artist, Ryan Woodward, created both Thought of You and today's Graham tribute!

    Here's an article on the creation of the Doodle and the significance of the movements used to represent each letter: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2385178,00.asp.

    Happy (belated) mother's day!

  35. Oh my goodness she is precious.

  36. Shiloh

    oh man, what a beautiful baby. Well done. huzzah for procreation!

    Happy Mother's Day! I've never been to 2Amy's but I had the BEST pizza the other day. In Falls Church, VA there is a place called Mad Fox Brewery. My friend and I split the Fig and Balsamic Blues pizza. It had Local Bleu Cheese (but not too much), bacon, caramelized onions, figs, rosemary and balsamic. It was amazing and we were both so sad when it was done.

  38. Megan

    Wow, your baby always looks adorable, but these shots just might take the cake!! and her cute little bow! Happy Mother's Day – sounds like you had a great weekend.

    Liesl :)

  46. I thought I was the only one!! haha
    Everyone gives me a hardtime because I just get stuck on certain foods. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one. Eleanor is looking quite beautiful. Happy Mothers Day!

  47. I think E looks the perfect amount of both of you – esp in these smiley photos – she has your eyes but her facial features remind me of Josh! She really is adorable, Happy Mothers Day : )

  48. Sarah

    She really is cute as a button. I love pizza too only I wish I got sick of it. I could eat it everyday EASY. The nice thing my hub gets bad heart burn so we don't eat it as often as I like. So it's a luxury anytime we do =)

    – Sarah

  54. meg

    Hands down, the most adorable family EVER.

  55. Rachel

    I think you just might have the cutest baby girl ever! She. Is. Adorable. I have four little girls myself, so I should know. ;)

    p.s. "They say" about date nights…. who is they? Do whatever your mommy heart tells you. She's tiny and before you know it, it'll be easier to leave her if you want. My current favorite date night is Thai food takeout and movie night–at home.

  56. Groups

    Where oh where do you get your baby girl's headbands? They are adorable, and I have never seen ones like it before. Thanks!

  57. oh my gosh I love her little piggy toesies :) toooo cute!
