Last week we headed out to Brooklyn.. we had quite a few things on our list we wanted to do, the first was to see this view oF Manhattan Bridge (which is apparently where Dan Humphrey lived.. a lot of you told me on insta! I never really watched the show though) and take Atticus to the park right on the corner, which we did.. then we were supposed to go to Jane’s Carousel and the Water Lab and then Faicco’s on the way home but I was literally dripping sweat and getting so light headed because of it so we headed home! Haha seriously being pregnant in the summer is rough!! I am constantly so hot and I look around and swear everyone else is doing just fine but I sitting there feeling like I am gonna die.

Now lets talk about molars cause I freaking hate them! Atticus has been getting 4 molars all at once and he has been in so much pain it has been so unbelievably sad to see. We have tried everything…. Orajel, wet frozen wash cloth, molar munchers, teething tablets, homemade popsicles, and everything else on the internet but it is still really killin him. We have been up (literally) all night the last few nights because he needs to be in our bed and he just moans and cant get comfortable. The pain has been so bad that it has been making him sick 🙁 but luckily the ONE night I was in Florida he slept amazing, wasn’t sick, and showed no signs of teething which was a major answer to my prayers because I was a nutcase before leaving and hated the thought of him needing me and me being gone. So I was glad he felt good and had a fun day with his daddio.

Last night though at like maybe 4am Atticus wouldn’t stop coughing and I was getting kinda worried so I woke up to walk to Duane Reade and I dont know what the heck it is about the sun being down but I literally felt like I was in the movie The Purge and it was everyone’s one night to commit crime and I was sneaking out in the middle of it .. ha! I was terrified and we live in a good neighborhood.. the night time is so creepy by yourself.

  1. Thanks! I’m so excited! ???? I’ve been using this oil from whole foods called Almond Glow I really like it so far! It has vitamin E and almond oil in it. Hope that’s helpful!

    1. Haha totally!! I couldn’t believe so many people recognized the street, I love it 🙂

  2. Hey Amber,
    Glad you did a BK post, love it there. I like checking your site for fun day trips and new places to take my son in the city. He just turned one a couple weeks ago so it’s nice seeing what Atticus is enjoying since they are close in age. I’ll have to check some of these spots out. Thanks!

    1. Thanks so much Amanda!! I am so happy you follow along 🙂 And aww how sweet!! I bet your son is adorable!! xo

  3. oh my I absolutely LOVE these photos, it is so wonderful that you are having these super adorable adventures with him before he has to share you with baby girl :)!
    I didn’t answer you in your reply to my comment on a previous post but we have a almost 3 year old daughter and an almost 1 year old little guy 🙂 xo

    1. Thanks so much Roxanne!! I am so glad you liked it 🙂 And how sweet!! I bet they adore each other!! xo

  4. It’s so funny that you mention Dan Humphrey, I just binge watched that entire series! haha
    I am so sorry that Atticus is in so much pain, I can’t stand to see a baby sick. I hope his molars stop hurting him soon! He looks so stinking cute in that cowboy hat 🙂

    1. I need to watch them all!! I haven’t seen them all!! ahh! And aww thanks!! Luckily, he is almost done getting all his teeth in yay! Thanks for reading!! xo

  5. Poor little man! I have 3 gorgeous bubbas, the first two stuffers so badly with teething but with my third a friend introduced me to Amber beads loads of babies wear them in the UK and NZ. Long story short I put them on him around 3 months he is now 2 (still wears them) and I didn’t even know his teeth had come through until I saw them! I would highly recommend.

    1. I have heard such good things about the amber beads!! I may have to get some, especially for when baby girl starts teething later on! Thanks for letting me know!! 🙂

  6. I love all of your blog posts! Atticus is so cute! I recently found out I’m pregnant and am wondering what you use for strectch marks?
    -Vanity

    1. Thanks so much!! And congrats!! That’s so exciting 🙂 And I haven’t dealt with stretch marks too bad until now 🙁 I exfoliate with sugar which I heard helps a lot!! But I need to try some creams out!! Have you tried anything you liked?!

  7. Eek you are scaring me! My little girl is not far off the molars coming through so I think I’m in for the same soon. Poor Atticus, at least once they’re through, that’s hopefully it for a while. So good he was ok the night you were away though, I haven’t actually spent a night apart from my little one yet but you’ve given me hope! Just gotta trust that Dad’s got it in the bag! 🙂

    1. I am sorry I am just seeing this ahh! Did your little girl get her molars?! Teething is the worst 🙁

      1. That’s ok! She finally got one, the second one is on it’s way so it was a long, sleepless night last night 🙁 Ahh poor things, must be tough.

  8. You have already answered a comment of mine (which I am so grateful for!❤️) I would LOVE to go to your salon, but I live in california. Do you know what kind of cut you get; is it layered all the way down, U-cut with face framing layers, etc.? I am trying to get mine like yours and I want to tell my hair dresser what kind of cut it is. Thank you so much for taking your time to reply to me, you must be crazy busy chasing around Atticus????

    1. I am so glad that helped!! And I keep it very simple, and just get an overall trim on my ends. I keep it one length. I do have some layers from years ago that haven’t grown totally. If that makes sense?! Also, my hair is thin so one length works best for me!! xo

  9. Teething is the pits!! My little girl got all four of her molars at the same time too. The only thing that helped was Infant Advil. I think I even gave her less than the dose recommended by her pediatrician for her weight… and it still did the trick. Some people don’t like to give medicine, but I thought I’d offer up the suggestion anyway. Best of luck! And the two of you look adorable, as always!

    1. I know it!! I can’t wait till he has all his teeth in!! And thanks for the suggestion, that’s good to know!! Especially with baby girl coming, I will keep it in mind for her later on 🙂 xoxo

  10. You and Atticus are seriously the cutest! I especially love his cowboy hat! I know this probably isn’t the best advice, but I had horrible colic as a baby and teething was a nightmare for me and my mom used to rub Brandy on my gums and she always said it really helped. Also when I had a really bad cough she would give me a few drops (literally drops) of Brand and it would help. Like I said I know this advice isn’t for everyone, but I know it helped me and alcohol is what’s in a lot of cold medications anyway. Also I’m fine as an adult (and don’t have any issues with alcohol!). Hopefully this can help a bit :)!

    1. Aww thank you so much Kristin!! He is so fun 🙂 And wow I have never heard of that! Thanks so much for the suggestion!! I may have to try it out with baby girl when teething time comes around later on!! xoxo

    1. It was fun to see where they filmed part of the show!! And haha totally!! Especially the fun hats 🙂 Thanks Candace! xo

  11. for some reason I am not getting your e mails anymore. Are you only on instagram and pinterest now??

    1. There was an issue with the emails but we have since fixed it!! So you should be getting them now 🙂 Let me know if not!! xo

  12. I used to think the Amber necklace thing was a joke, but now I swear by mine!! It’s definitely worth a try in my opinion.

  13. I’ve never been down to that part of Brooklyn! Looks fun!

    1. It was a blast!! You will have to check it out sometime! Thanks for reading 🙂

    1. Thank you so much!! You are too nice! And I definitely need to start watching it 🙂 I heard it’s so good! Thank you for reading love!! xo

    1. I know huh?! I have heard such good things about it so I may have to start watching now 🙂

  14. as a die-hard Gossip Girl fan, I’m SO jealous you had the chance to go out to Brooklyn! & girl you look gorgeous in that olive dress! I wish I knew some teething tricks, but I don’t have any kiddos of my own yet :p
    xoxo hails

    1. I feel like I need to become a GG fan so I can fully appreciate being there haha! And you are so nice!! Thank you Hailey!! xo

  15. We’ve tried all the tricks in the book and found Infant ibuprofen is really the only thing that helps my Lil guy with teething. We give him a Lil before bed time and it makes a huge difference. Molars were hard, but my Lil guy is cutting his incisors right now and they have been so much worse for him than his Molars!

    1. Oh no way?? Okay good to know!! Thanks so much Heather!! Hopefully our little guys will be back to feeling like themselves soon!! 🙁

      1. Yes!! Some people don’t like giving meds, but Ibuprofen is also the only thing that works for us when it gets really bad too. Poor little guy!! 🙁

  16. You should try baby tylenol! I worked as an infant/toddler teacher for the last two years out in CA and I know a few moms who swore by it to help their kids in the middle of the night! No reason to give it to them at all hours of the day, but in the wee hours when he needs his rest and a reprieve from the growing pains, it’s good to try!

    1. That is good to know!! A few people have suggested that! Thank you so much!! I appreciate it!! xo

    1. Thank you so much Priscilla!! You are so sweet! I am hoping he will be back to himself soon 🙁 I hope your day is going great!! xo

    1. Thanks so much Ashlee!! Views of the Brooklyn Bridge never get old for me 🙂

  17. Love your post Amber!!! How did you get those gorgeous waves?? Maybe post a tutorial pretty please? I’ve been trying to make waves like that forever.

    1. Thanks so much!! And that is a great idea for a tutorial, thanks for the suggestion!! xo

  18. ohh poor Atticus hope he gets better that’s the worst to watch your baby suffer and you not been able to sooth the pain. He looks so happy in the pictures and that’s a great outfit!

    1. Thanks so much Marina!! I am hoping this will all pass soon so he can be back to himself 🙁 Thank you for the sweet comment!! xo

  19. Molars really are the worst! My baby girl got all 4 of hers at one time and she is still struggling 🙁 I hope that all come in soon and he gets feeling better.

    1. Thanks so much Rachel!! I hope so too!! And oh darn!! All at once?! I hope your little angel feels better too! xo

    1. It is such a cute neighborhood!! We loved it 🙂 And thanks so much!! I am hoping it will pass soon!! xo

  20. aww sad babies are the worst 🙂 I babysit a few nights ago for a little boy and his baby sister and they are about the same age as Atticus and your baby girl will be apart and they were honestly the cutest together. He kept kissing her and telling her what we were doing and I sat down to feed her her bottle and he said “sissy sit right here.” So all that to say Atticus is gonna be the best brother and you and David are already the best parents!!

    1. They really are!! It has been a rough few days 🙁 And aww serious?! How sweet!! I can’t wait for that!! That makes me happy to hear! Thanks for the sweet comment Sara!! xo

      1. thanks for the comment back 🙂 it isn’t working for me to subscribe to your blog. any ideas??

  21. Poor Atticus. Our son has been up teething the last three nights. Also got 4 molars at once, just the last one thats causing trouble. Just know people all over the world are going through the same with their children. 😉

    1. Oh no really?! I am glad you can relate with me then!! It is the worst 🙁 I hope your little man is feeling better!! Thanks for your sweet comment love!!

  22. This view of the bridge is amazing! Loving that olive green color on you 🙂 I am so sorry about poor little Atticus teething! I know it is so painful for them, it’s heartbreaking. I also agree that being outside in the early morning by yourself is so eerie. When I walk to my car to go to work it always feels like a horror movie haha!

    1. Thanks so much Quinn!! We love taking pictures there, it’s the perfect backdrop 🙂 And aww thank you!! I am hoping it will pass soon 🙁 I am glad I am not the only one scared to walk outside when it is dark haha! I swear I am a baby!!!

  23. So hard to hear about the teething pains – poor Atticus! Love the dress you’re wearing. I’d never have guessed you were dying of heat. You look perfectly joyous spinning around and giving A a ride on your shoulders!! xoxo

    1. I know!! It is the worst 🙁 Hopefully it will pass soon!! And thanks so much!! I am glad you like it! xo

    1. Thanks so much Ashley!! And ahh yeah it’s been rough for me, thanks for the comment love!! xo

  24. Finally you showed back up in my WordPress reader! Ha! Wonderful news to me! 🙂 Not as happy to read about Atticus’ molar troubles though! You’re poor boy! My 10 month in JUST cutting his first tooth (which is actually turning into his first 6 bottom teeth today!) It’s so heart breaking to see them so sad and in pain. I almost cried the other night thinking babies must wonder if this is what life is always going to be like. I’m such a sap! Have you tried Amber Teething Necklaces? I can’t attest to them because I’ve never used one for my son but I know several friends who SWEAR by them. Amber is apparently a holistic treatment to help babies during teething. Maybe it’s something to try? But again, I haven’t actually tried it myself so I don’t really know. I hope those suckers cut through soon so you’re baby can be a happy fella again!!! xo Carly http://www.frecklesandcheeks.com

    1. Oh good to hear!! Thanks so much for letting me know!! And oh no really?! Darn it!! Our poor boys!! It really is the worst feeling when they’re in pain 🙁 And someone else suggested that too!! I may need to consider trying that!! Thanks for the advice!! xo

      1. No problem!! I’m still skeptical about them but I’ve heard so many people talk about how they really helped (especially for molars) that it might be something to consider if you can’t seem to find anything else that is helping. I know people have also suggested baby Tylenol or Advil already (not sure if that’s something you believe in) but hopefully you’re able to find something that works soon! The good thing is once it’s all over he’ll forget about how much pain he was in! 🙂 xo

  25. Love the pictures, David is really amazing! I’m the photographer in my fam in it’s hard to be taking pictures when you want to be in them! (workin on the hubby 😉 )
    Poor Atticus, just remember…this too shall pass! That phrase is a lifesaver sometime. Hang in there!
    Much love, Malena

    1. Aww thank you so much!! I will pass that nice compliment along to him 🙂 And it is so hard being behind the camera for sure!! I feel ya! And thanks love!! I am hoping it will pass soon! 🙂

  26. Have you ever had that sinking feeling? You feel like you’re drowning even with your feet on the ground? Well, I have, I have for a long time now.

    I left home, friends, family, school, everything to peruse a dream, A dream I’m not quite sure was mine, or just what everyone wanted from me. Maybe I just left so I could scape, but you never really do, reality and the past always find something to smash you in the face with.

    Last year was though for me.

    Has anyone ever told you ¨Tell yourself that lie till you believe it yourself¨?
    Well, maybe that’s what I have been doing to myself, I told myself and everyone around me I was leaving towards something big, towards the rest of my life; Hell, I even cried when I heard those stupid motivational songs.
    Instead, I’m doing nothing, I still have a dream, my dream is going to college. That was the excuse I used to disguise the truth, that I was leaving it all to scape it all; to scape the bullies, the eating disorders, the broken hearts.

    I took a year off to travel, and in the process, I felt in love. Best damn thing ever.
    The problem is, somehow love distracted me from my goal.
    I jumped into that plane filled with dreams and self confidence, and now, I look at myself in the mirror and I cant recognize that girl. Its gotten so bad I try not to look in the mirror.

    I found the solution after months… this is the new me.

    A couple of days ago, I was going through my instragram feed, when I saw a very interesting picture with a quote. It read ¨If I asked you what you love the most, how many things will you mention before mentioning yourself¨…

    So I looked at myself in the mirror, I told myself I loved me. I cried looking at myself and promised I will do everything to change. I had the power to change my life.

    I applied to university, they said yes… after the second time I applied. Because that’s how success looks like sometimes, It looks like a bunch of failures, So this goes to all of you who feel like you’re not good enough.

    You are.
    You can.
    You will.

    My dream came true.

    My point here is… We could be heroes, peruse your dreams, be afraid, its just human, but don’t let it cage you.
    Also, be mad, be mad at your failures, embrace them, if you let it, it will drive you towards something positive.

    The positive change wont come over night, you have to work in yourself.

    I´ll be writing a daily log about how I changed myself into someone I like.

You are amazing for managing it all while being pregnant 🙂 and still looking gorgeous.
