lunch date.

the other day on our way to a doctors appointment we stopped by papa’s office and stole him away for lunch at johnny rockets. they gave eleanor her first ever balloon while we were there… which felt appropriate considering the last time we were there was on my due date (well, one of my due dates. i had like, 3. and none of them were even close. ugh.)
  1. Dianna

    your the cutest!

  2. Love your head band (scarf?)! Where is it from?

  3. meg fee

    you all get better and better looking (because you're so happy? that's my guess). and lately naomi i've been dreaming about that day (that hopefully not so far off day when i'll have a baby and our babies will play together). it'll be grand, won't it? xo.

    ok so i normally don't post links to my blog on other people's blogs, but please forgive me this once! last week i wrote a bit about by son's balloon, his first balloon, that he also was given at a restaurant, and i think you'd like it. isn't it so fun to watch their excitement at such simple things?

  25. Anna

    Beautiful family and post. :)

  47. Sonja

    Wow! Isn't it crazy how time flies! Yet feels so long ago! I don't know where I'm going with this, other than to say that time passing is crazy, and you guys are the most adorable family! And that Eleanor's never fading smile is just the best!!!

  48. Samantha

    You are inspiring me to find the connection with my husband again. I was thinking of your blog just the other day, when I found myself incredibly annoyed that my husband didn't know what to feed the baby and had to call me to ask… I had to think…I need to relax so I can have what they (you) have.

  49. i would like whatever happy pills she seems to always be on :)

  50. Beautiful photos! And that is one adorable baby. :]

  51. Wow! Its such a miracle… not long ago you were sitting at the same place, with a big belly, waiting for a baby…
    And now: There she is! Happy, beautiful Eleanor.
    I am still so in love with your name choice.

  52. Janna

    What a sweet set of pictures, you guys all look so happy.

  53. After this post I have a hankering for fries and a milkshake…vegan friendly fries and a milkshake of course.

    Fab pic of you and Eleanor. You can see where she get's that vibrant smile.
    One good deed EVERY day {124 days so far!}

  60. jana

    sometimes i cried by reading your texts because your blog, your pictures, your husband, your girl and you are the cutest couple i've ever seen and i'm so touched by watching these pictures, reading your texts and seeing how much you both love eleanor, she has to be so happy and blessed to be your child! It makes myself happy to see this and i think you're a kind of role model for me and also for many other girls, mothers or parents :) .. greets and compliments from germany, jana

  61. You're little girl is so beautiful! She's got a superb name too (I'm also an Eleanor!) Love your blog x
