christmas, part II.


after christmas morning at the apartment, we skyped with family and then met up with our friend natalie for brunch in the village at AOC. by the way, the quiche lorraine is out of this world delicious! brunch also felt a bit like we were on vacation or something, as we scored with the babes alternating naps while we were out. and the next best thing after having both babes nap at the same time is having the babes alternate the longest naps of their lives while you are at lunch.  the ratio of three adults to one baby practically makes you think you are lunching with no baby at all!  oh, life with kids!

    hey naomi! christmas looks so merry on your side of the country. I love your outfit in all the photos especially that red and pink top and that gorgeous grey coat. if you don’t mind me asking, where did you purchase those items?

    *it would be really cool to see a post about where you shop at and purchase your clothes too.

    p.s. I love your new blog design!

    p.p.s. merry {belated} christmas to you and your adorable family!

    What a lovely day! Doesn’t Christmas with kids make you wonder how you ever enjoyed the day before? I had so much fun watching my almost two year old daughter, Sloane, participate in the excitement of the holiday. Merry Christmas, Davis Family!

  26. Marlene

    I follow Natalie on Instagram and commented on a pic of you two on how beautiful she looks while fighting a cold. She commented back thanking me and said the pic was taken far away to hide her red tired eyes. Tell her I know she was lying, lol! Your pic on this post clearly proves that!

  27. These photos are so cute!

    Glad y’all had a great day!

  28. really great and nice sharing, i like the cute kids pictures, thanks to share the Christmas pictures

  29. What a beautiful family! I wish you an happy new year for all! My young boys like to watch your blog with me, they said “look the baby and the girl, they’re so cute”,..


  30. Ashley

    Merry Christmas Naomi and family. What gorgeous photos. You really should consider offering photography advice on your blog. You have a wonderful way of capturing family life on camera.

  31. Iva

    Thank you for posting so often! It makes us readers very happy :)) Happy holidays from Europe!

  32. Amber

    This is so lovely. I have to admit, I’m a little jealous. I so wanted to go to New York around Christmas and all these NYC/Christmasy things is pulling at all my heart strings. Maybe next year. So glad to see you had such a wonderful day!

  33. Kristin

    I just love the way you chronicle your day. The pictures are amazing and your family is beyond adorable. Thank you for sharing bits of your life with everyone. You are an inspiration to many!! Hope you are enjoying your holidays!!

  34. lauren

    I love your photography. How do you shoot your pictures? can you tell me any secrets that you do in settings? you shoot manual or automatic? there is just something that I love about them. they are vivid but not washed out

  35. bridget

  36. Melanie

    I love these pictures, you all look so happy! Your baby boy looks so big now and that smile…oh so cute!

  37. Laura

    Hi Naomi! I discovered your site back when you still lived in D.C. I enjoyed reading about places you went to with your family as I am in D.C. area as well. I’m still following along in NYC! I love your pictures! Here’s something funny: I browsed your archives one day and saw where your husband went to high school. I’m from Jax, too! Tell him I went to Wolfson, but back in the ’80s when it was a great school. However, I did have a Bolles boyfriend. Jeez, what memories…

  38. It looks like you had a wonderful day. Adorable pictures!

  39. bridget

    maybe it’s odd, but i especially love that photograph of the taxi. glad you had such a lovely christmas outing AND that your wee ones slept. what luck! : )

    What brand is Samson’s blanket? I am a fellow swaddle-lover, and am always looking for great (and beautiful) swaddle blankets. Yours must be great if you use it so much!

  46. Honestly, could your family be any more adorable?

  47. Theresa

    Such a beautiful christmas in NYC! I love your outfits in here! Oh, and Eleanor, with that smile of hers! So cute! Samson looks so cozy in that pretty blanket!

    Hello Naomi

    Congratulations for this new blog, it is beautiful. Really.
    In fact I fell totally in love with the font used in the logo and the pages “older” “newer”.

    I would have liked to know what was the name of this font.
    Thank you in advance.

    (sorry for my english. i’m french)

  49. I saw these pics on your social feed, and I have decided that the thing my life definitely needs in 2013 is a more colorful wardrobe! Swooning over all of your outfits! xo*

  57. karen albl

    I wish you could click on pictures and ask questions, maybe you can and I just don’t know how. What was that one pic in your latest post that showed Priests/Bishops kneeling in front of an altar that looked like it had bird cages on it? With the fountains of water spraying in the back ground?

  58. Nina

    The second to last photo looks like E is saying “Praise be!” What a hoot! I wish you and your family a very blessed new year. Thank you for making me smile daily by sharing your amazing love for each other :)
