Babies in Paris

My mom also sent us some photos of our family in Paris, right after my sister and I were born. I totally adore this breastfeeding photo, it looks so tender and made me a little teary. Here are more photos from Paris...
And I'm also amazed that her clothes look so current!
You can see Versailles in the background...
My mom delivered us by C-section at the American Hospital of Paris and stayed for a whopping ten days afterwards to rest. My mom also said the hospital food was amazing, including slices of Camembert.
The view from the Eiffel Tower...
I really loved looking through these; thank you so much, Mama! It was the best birthday present.

I can see where your style influence comes from. She was so hip in Paris! You and your sister were such charming twins. (ps... I applaud your mother for keeping her hair long. Absolutely stunning!)

Becca said...

these are so precious...really.
and your right about her outfits, very current.

isabug said...

I agree that you all look so alike! That first photo is absolutely fantastic - from the wallpaper, to the mouse and phone - perfect! I also love the shot where one of you is peering over the bridge :) Adorable!

annawithlove said...

This post melts my heart on so many different levels. These photos are such a gift and so magical. There is a innocence to those photos which I love.

You were little Parisian Babies! It also makes me want to move to Paris when I get married and have babies.

Thank you SO much for posting xo

isabug said...

P.S. Are those people in the background of the last photo exercising?

la la Lovely said...

Gorgeous photos. Can't believe how stylish and current the wallpaper and your Mom's clothes look. What amazing memories and images to tell the story. A baby and a baguette could there be anything cuter?

GIRL AND CLOSET said...

Your mom is gorgeous! I love those pictures, so beautiful and vintage. I love going through old photos. AND I love that wallpaper, interesting that it was trendy to do the ceiling too. xx veronika

Gabriella said...

The baguette picture made me laugh! Also loved the one with the bare bottoms. Too cute!

Nancy said...

These photos are so, so sweet! Thank you for sharing them. I, too, love the baguette shot!

MAUD said...

these photos are just beautiful. it's so heartwarming to look at them.

ps. you look just like your mother - it's uncanny!

Aura said...

AHH I LOVE THESE! I adore nothing more than old photos of my family, it is such a wonderful little peek into where I came from, and who they were at my age. That is one beautiful pram that your Dad is pushing in the last photo! I wish we had room for one in our tiny little house, but there's just not a place to put one.
You're right, her clothes do look very current. I feel the same way when I see old photos of my Mom. It is so inspiring to reevaluate the way I dress and to pick pieces that I know will still look timeless and beautiful in 30 years when my little ones are looking at old pictures of my husband and I.

These are so great, Joanna! Thank you for posting them. Although I'm sure it was so much more self-rewarding to you to just be able to take this trip down memory lane.

Happy February!
Aura

Jenni Austria Germany said...

these are all amazing. so sweet of you to share. i love the wallpaper and the mouse with 2 mice (and the story behind it). her clothes really do look current, don't they?!

Stephanie Sabbe said...

Erin said...

I love these photos. Thanks for sharing.

love old photographs of families, love the 70's even more, and really love the first shot with the amazing wallpaper. beautiful:)

Eric and Jill said...

Joanna, do you know how long your mother breastfed you both? My aunt is pregnant with twins and is afraid she won't be able to handle breastfeeding them (although she loved bf her first child). I'd like to send her this for inspiration! Thanks so much!

Moonlight said...

Oh you look terribly alike!!!

Leigh said...

These are sooooo amazing! Thank you for sharing. Of course, I'm beaming over the beautiful breastfeeding & babywearing!!! LOVE! Hope your day was lovely yesterday.

Sarah @ Knit York City said...

Beautiful photos. I love seeing pictures of my parents when they were young. They always feel so fantastic and vibrant. Pictures were so meaningful then when you could only take 24 of them!

These photos are simply amazing. I don't know what else to say. Love Love

Trina said...

That is so great! Looking at old baby pictures is the best. Really brings home parts of your history that you may not think of day-to-day.

About Last Weekend said...

Oh how gorgeous, your mother is so naturally stylish - and she looks sooo young. Love her jeans...and her hair. Also amazing they took so many pictures. My parents have about 10 pics total from all our years - mind you I am way older than you!

Robyn said...

These are great! Thank you for sharing! Obviously the fashionista side comes from your mum! Froget Nairobi, these photos make me want to go to Europe now now now!

thanks for sharing this with us! now I wanna go have babies in another country :)

Vanessa said...

These pictures are priceless! You lived such a glam life right off the bat, haha.

PoetessWug said...

What a gift, to have not only the photographs of your childhood, but having your mom fill in the details!...*sigh*...I'm a little jealous! I think I must have been hatched from an egg or something!! ^_^

Amber said...

You look like literally the chicest family ever. Your mom's style is certainly timeless, and you were such well-dressed babies!

Mrs. B. said...

These photos are so precious! Keepsakes for sure. :)
Something about sweet babies in vintage clothes with a Parisian backdrop...it's magic.

The one with the baguette. Love.

Nuha said...

I loved looking through these too :) They are soo so precious!

Your mother looks just like you! So now we know where you get your beauty and style.
What priceless photos!

Anonymous said...

Your mom is such a beauty!

shoegirl said...

Your mom is unbelievably stylish and timeless - doesn't hurt to have that Parisian influence! And that baguette photo is just too much. These give me hope that raising a child in another country is possible. Maybe some day... Thanks for sharing!

Annie said...

Such beautiful pictures! Thanks so much for sharing a little family history with us.

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

The last photo of your dad reminds me a lot of my dad.

Also, it seems wallpaper on the walls AND ceiling has been a trend for a while - the original wallpaper for my 1880's farmhouse is on both! (and has been painted over SEVERAL times by previous owners... awful)

Monica from Hola!design said...

Great pics! Your dad's pants are so cool! and your mom was and still is beautiful.

MrsKinne said...

I love these! Thank you for sharing. :)

Sarah Katie said...

classic pieces never really go out of style. it is just good fashion.

Ginny said...

such sweet pictures. thanks for sharing. your mom makes mother hood seem so effortless.

Pamela said...

THese are fantastic. Baby butts!!

Joy said...

I can't get over how similar your profile is to your mothers! And I LOVE her boots in that one picture.

Colleen said...

Awesome photos of your family. My mom didn't look that awesome after having me. It wasn't her fault, though. I took 26 hours to make my appearance. But your mom looks so relaxed, even with twins.

Stephanie said...

Oh man, these are precious. Don't you just love old photos! I love to go through my parent's photo collection from when they were first married and had me. The clothing always cracks me up, and makes me a bit jealous that my mom didn't hang on to more of her awesome 70's/80's wardrobe.

Toby looks so much like you! Thanks for sharing!

Now, for the baby Alex post!

Lexie, Little Boat said...

these are so precious! what a life your mom must have lived/is living! my heart nearly exploded at the baby bottoms picture!

Davanie said...

Fun pictures!

Do you know what books your mom (or dad) was reading in the first photo? I can't quite tell. I don't recognize it but I'm wondering if it was a lesser known 'Dr. Spock' type book or a 'What to Expect'.

My Beautiful Life said...

You both look a lot like your Mama. The love of a mother is such an amazing thing.

What sweet photos. Thanks for sharing.

christophersmom said...

How come nobody noticed that your Dad looked just like Dennis Quaid (with darker hair)?

Christina said...

What an amazing place to grow up for the first few months/days of your life! Such cool photos too. The shoes, the styles. That says something about trying to wear what is classic, it will always look good years later.

Cynthia Vance-Lovasik, Pennsylvania said...

I am an old friend of your parents' who follows your blog. Oh my, how the baby photos of you and Lucy brought back memories of those seventies years!! Your mom and dad were absolutely totally hip and happy with your babyhood. I love your blog because your writing reminds me so much of your dad's writing. You, your sister and your brother are so much the children of Jeremy and Jean...smart, creative, fun and full of love for the world. Thanks for sharing so much of yourself.

nicole said...

What treasures! Thanks for sharing. xo.

Future said...

You look just like your mom! I especially see in the expressions on your faces when you hold your children-you both look like you'd rather be nowhere else in the world than pouring love into your little ones. Looks like she rubbed off well:)

Glenda said...

thanks for sharing. amazing pictures.

Stacey Sargent said...

Such a fun post. I have been a reader forever, but haven't commented much, but my goal for this year is to comment more, cause who doesn't love comments??

So fun that you grew up in one of the greatest cities in the world! Your mom is beautiful, and you look just like her!

That is just so cute!!! How great to grow up in the "city of love"...

Giovanna said...

so pretty! i'd love to raise a child in paris, at least for a few years.

Jill said...

Gorgeous photos. I personally would have freaked out if I found out I was carrying twins - your mom looks like she did it with grace. My mom is a twin and I grew up thinking it must be an awesome way to live your life. Really, two must be double the fun.

Judi said...

These are simply beautiful! You're right, the clothes do look so modern; what dates these photos is your father's haircut! In the last photo, it looks like the background people are doing stretches of some sort, so funny.

{My favorite is the one of you, or your sister, eating the baguette! So Parisian!}

Elizabeth Alley said...

So sweet.

diana said...

In the first picture you look totally alike, especially with your vignette on the side to compare with. And your dad? Tobias Paul looks EXACTLY like him!

She's such a beautiful girl, and so are you! And I love how serene everything looks, yet I imagine having twins abroad (no family help) was not exactly relaxing...

Victoria said...

My two year old twins love jumping off the sides of flower beds in San Diego just like the photo of you walking on them:) It's so amazing no matter time in history or place of residence toddlers will always be the same! Lovely photos- thanks for sharing!

What great pics, and how to cool that you were born and lived in Paris when you were little!

If they were giving away camembert for lunch here, I think I'd stay at the hospital for ten days, too.

Beautiful pictures. I love the aura that comes with older photographs... there is just something about them.
