happy 1st father’s day!

i have this teeny tiny suspicion that eleanor’s first word will be “dadda”. she’ll probably share her first secret with him, too. and i wonder if at some point she’ll begin to ignore me when her daddy comes home like kingsley does (he is so obsessed with josh it’s like he forgets who gives him the *extra* treats around here. ugh.) i have this teeny tiny suspicion she’ll be a daddy’s girl. i already see it beginning…slowly, but surely, i’ll be the outsider in this family. and i guess that’s ok. because they’re pretty cute together. and you know, i’m all about cute things. ;)
happy father’s day to all the wonderful dads out there, to my own father and father-in-law who we love and admire so much, and a very happy 1st official father’s day to my love (and 4 year wedding anniversary today, too!) i like seeing you as a dad, josh. it’s super sexy. i love you.

    She is such a mini-Josh too! I think E. is the smiliest, happiest baby ever.

  11. she is probably the happiest baby on earth. seriously. and her dimples kill me! so cute.

  12. Your predictions sound so familiar!! My baby girl was saying dad from 6 months old! And she didn't start saying mom till she was almost one. And the whole ignoring thing? That was totally my baby!! haha them girls like their dads. Eleanor is THE sweetest thing!

    Okay. Love your blog SO much. And little Eleanor??? I may be obsessed with that adorable smile of hers. I know I'm partial to be a mommy of an adorable baby girl TOO, but Seriously??? SERIOUSLY??? Eleanor is BEAUTIFULLLLLLL!!!! I wouldn't expect anything less from you two making a baby! Happy Father's Day!!

  14. Oh my gosh she is such a bundle of cute! Happy 1st daddy's day Josh :)

    Saw a bulldog on Capitol Hill yesterday and did a double-take thinking I was going to get to meet Kingsley finally… but alas, this BD was SOOOO not as adorable as Kingsley is :) tee hee

  15. Happy first Father's Day to your hubby, and a very happy fourth Anniversary to you both–you have the best present in Eleanor! :)

  16. So sweet :) Happy fathers day to your husband!

  17. Happy Father's Day! E and Josh are such a cute little pair and yes I can totally see E as a daddy's girl. Spoken from a true one:) XO

  24. Awww. I don't think there's anything that will break you three musketeers. You three are the cutest thing together. Happy Daddy Day Josh!

  25. Oldest daughters are always daddy's girls. It's just how the world works. But it's a beautiful thing.

    I'm the first born daughter and one of three girls. I'm a daddy's girl, I love him so much. But my bond with my mum is something I cant describe. Actually it doesn't need words.. she just knows. You can see that E loves being with her daddy…. but in the photo on the right she is looking at you..

  30. a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e. I know I'm going to think of my future husband in fatherhood as sexy too someday. Men and babies just go together in the cutest way. :)

  31. just stumbled upon your blog….love it! you have an adorable little family :) blessings!

  32. I just love the way Eleanor seems to be looking at him in the first picture… I just can't get enough of her! Happy Father's Day Josh! And I hope you had a birthday that's as wonderful as you are Naomi!! =)

    you rockstars!
    sooner than later you'll have a baby boy that is aaaalll for you, girl! ha! :)

    My Samantha's first word was Momma, then it changed to Bobba (even though she doesn't use bottles lol) and now she is stuck on Dadda. She said momma for only a week too and she's been saying dadda FOREVER! But it melts my heart seeing her with my hub.

    too cute! happy first father's day :)

  40. happy 1st fathers day!!! already an amazing daddy!

  41. I'm glad you have a positive attitude about Eleanor being a "daddy's girl" because when it hits, it hits hard!!! LOL!! My baby girl is 13 months old and she eats, sleeps and breathes her daddy!! She also happens to look just like him (of course!!). At least you have the dominant genes in the relationship!! : ) Truth be told, I wouldn't change it for anything in the world and I knew as soon as we found out we were having a girl it would be just this way. So, so sweet!! xoxo

  44. Emily

    You'll just have to have another and let it be a mama's boy!
    I have one, and it's great!
    Be thankful that E has a wonderful father in her life!
