DRESS: Chiara BoniΒ // LIPSTICK: Nars ‘Heat Wave’ // Atticus – TUXEDO: Amazon

While we were in Paris we took some maternity photos right when the sun rose for fun.. I sorta feel like since we document so much on this blog that I have plenty of “bump pics” but I wanted to do an official maternity shoot for the heck of it. I found this dress and planned on wearing it for the pics and then a week before I realized —- Atticus sorta HAS to be in the photos because we can’t just let him wander Paris by himself while David snaps photos of me so we snagged this lil tux on Amazon. Babies in tuxes – nothing better!!!!!! We planned on having David in some as well but then our freaking tripod broke! And yes we were going to be the people doing self timer on a tripod in Paris hah!

I officially have 6 weeks and 2 days left til baby!! Ahhhh. I am so excited. I just organized her little dresser with all of her diapers, clothes, swaddles, bows, etc. and me and David about died at how tiny the newborn diapers are! I had forgotten how small they are! Atticus never did wear newborn diapers since he was never that tiny.. in fact my first words when he came out were “he is so big!” haha. So really hoping baby girl is a little smaller so I can enjoy the newborn stage a bit longer.

Hope you all had a great weekend! We had a really good (and cold) weekend with friends and spent some good time with just our lil family.Β I am soo excited for a new week to start because I need to eat healthy this week!! David spoiled me all weekend with yummy homemade food – strawberry shortcake (he makes these amazing sweet biscuits from scratch and fresh strawberry compote – SO GOOD), potato stew, homemade ice cream and homemade apple sauce, steak, and he was constantly handing me pina coladas since that is my obsession right now. All of that coupled with lots of massages. He really is the sweetest.

Have a good Monday!! xo

PS here are our maternity pics from when I was pregnant with Atticus!

  1. You look like the sweetest mommy who loves her babies so so much! I love that you smile in your photos! There are some people that only pose with that “sultry” look on their face and it’s not very inviting!

  2. Gorgeous dress. I love looking back at your posts from a year or two ago and remembering seeing it! The coolest part about following a blog is watching a person/family grow and being excited for them even tho they have no idea! I love your blog Amber thanks for dedicating your time to this!

  3. Hi Amber! I was wondering if you had a favorite travel destination or favorite trip that you’d been on? I’m hoping to do some travelling soon and was looking for some ideas as to where I should start! Thank you!

  4. Hey Amber, stunning shoo! Where did you find a “black tie”/ formal maternity dress like that? I need one for a wedding in January… Thanks & Congrats!

  5. Hi Amber! I’m french girl and I’m so happy to see you in our Paris!! You’re so georgous and Atticus is sooooo cute !! I hope you enjoyed your trip! Sorry for my English but I really wanted you to write you a quick note. You are wonderful and you are certainly the model of many people!

    1. Thank you so much babe!! That is such a nice compliment!! You made my night πŸ™‚

  12. I remember the silver dress photos and maybe it’s still early, but you seemed bigger with Atticus. So maybe your little girl will be in the newborn size longer. I’m pregant with my 2nd (a girl, my first is a boy too) and looking forward to seeing all your cute girl outfits!!! Can’t wait!

    1. Thanks so much Carly!! It was so magical! I am so glad you liked the pics!! xo

  19. That red dress on you is stunning. It fits so perfectly, hugs you in all the right places, and I love the slight flare of the skirt. Wow! And what a good idea to get out there early, before the Eiffel Tower is surrounded by crowds. That picture of Atticus sitting on the ground looking up at you is my absolute fav. He is just adorable in that little tux!
    I can’t believe your little girl is coming so soon! Pregnancy flies by when you’re watching from the sidelines πŸ˜‰ Wishing you and the family all the best in these last few weeks! xoxo

    1. One question: that gorgeous dress isn’t a maternity dress?? Were you able to go the entire pregnancy without buying many maternity clothes?

      1. I didn’t buy a lot of maternity tops, or dresses. But I did buy a few maternity jeans/pants and then I was able to wear flowy tops and dresses that could cover the bump πŸ™‚ I know that isn’t much help.. but comfy maternity jeans are a MUST πŸ™‚

    2. Thank you so much!! I am so happy you liked it πŸ™‚ And yes! It was so quiet out, and just perfect for pictures πŸ™‚ And ahh we cannot wait for baby girl!! So soon!! Thanks for the love!! xo

  20. This is the definition of elegance. And that tux is to die for. Love love love!

  21. Wow. Beautiful photos!

    Also, congrats on your 1 million hit on IG! To think of how your blog has evolved and expanded over the years is crazy, thanks for letting us follow along! πŸ™‚

  33. Utter perfection! I hope you frame some of these shots!!! It is almost like you had Paris completely to yourselves! Love your little man, his smile reminds me of my little man. <3

  34. Hi Amber. Lovely as ever. I did have a question. Do you have any tips for looking fresh while traveling? I take these early morning flights for work and I always feel like no matter how much time I spend getting ready I always look a bit haggard once I land and then need to go straight to a meeting. Do you ever have that happen or do you have any tips for looking fresh while traveling? I hope I’m not the only one ????????

  35. These pics are AAAAAMMMAZING! I love little guys all decked out in tuxedos too! So precious! I cannot wait for the baby πŸ™‚ only a few short weeks! eeeek!! So excited to see how beautiful she is!

  36. Beautiful! You look like a starlet in that dress! Love your family and you’re right…babies in tuxes…to die for! My son was a preemie so his diapers were the smallest, tiniest things. My how fast they grow! Enjoy the next 6 weeks.
