Thanks to The Cove for gifting us our stay!

We just spent a few days at The Cove on the island of Eleuthera! They invited us to come out and enjoy a few days after Fashion Week! We stayed in the prettiest lil bungalow right on the beach. It was so quiet at the resort and felt like we had the place to ourselves. The water was sooo calm, blue, and warm! Atticus would walk right in up to his neck and just relax, it was so cute and I loved seeing him comfortable around water. We did endless swimming in the ocean, kayak rides, lots of smoothies, hammock hang outs, paddle boarding, and the resort was so nice to even offer me a 2 hour massage at the spa! It was the best spa massage I have had yet.. she did this thing where she massaged my stomach and it felt so good.. who would have thought? Also I just have to point out how cute little girl swimsuits are these days.. I am loving Ro’s suit and wish they had it in adult sizes!

My favorite thing is being in the ocean or pool and holding Atticus and having him cling on to me! I just love it. It reminds me of when he was (extra) little and we would snuggle in the bath together ๐Ÿ™‚ can’t believe he is getting so big!

We brought all of our favorite books with us and in between ocean sessions we would go inside and relax and read books. Atticus is very into Curious George books and Nancy Tillman books! Doesn’t matter which Nancy Tillman book it is, he will ask to have it read over and over and over again. They are such cute books that I almost want to cry every time I read one! The illustrations are also so beautiful.

We made a vlog of our trip, you can watch it HERE!

  6. I just watched the vlog and it was the cutest! The Bahamas was not on my bucket list but it is now!!

  7. You look great, dawling ? Are you still doing Keto? I’m 2 months postpartum and would love a diet/workout post!

  8. Hey Amber! I saw the vlog and it is just lovely. I am craving a place like that after delivering in a few weeks.
    A is so active! I love that in little boys. Mine is the same.
    I wanted to ask you how was he going with the whole speaking thing. If you had any activities or tips to encourage language develpment.
    Thanks you Xx

    1. Yes, I too was wondering if you might be willing to post an update on A’s speech therapy — I was so excited when you mentioned you’d found a great therapist for him by chance on the subway! My own 22 month-old was just diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), and I was wondering if that’s what A’s diagnosis is as well? (Her own personal “language” seems similar to the speech patterns Atticus uses, which is why I ask). I know you’ve said you haven’t discussed this in detail out of a desire to protect A’s privacy, which I absolutely understand and respect — but as a fellow mom facing the new and sometimes daunting process of dealing with my own child’s speech delay, & now starting to work with a new SLP, I’m really hoping you’ll reconsider in the interest of helping other parents & children who find ourselves in a similar position! For instance, I would love to know what wasn’t working with your original SLP, and how your new therapist has improved things? Also, we have been told that we must have 3-5 speech therapy sessions a week; I’m wondering if this is indeed necessary, so I’d love to know how often A has speech therapy, and whether or not you see a difference when you miss sessions for family trips, etc.? Of course helping my daughter is our first priority — but there’s just so much info to make sense of, and it would be so, so wonderful if someone with your public platform would be generous enough to offer some of your (no doubt hard-won) insight & guidance! Not to mention that as a much-loved and respected blogger, who many readers/fans look up to as embodying “#family goals,” you are in a uniquely privileged position to help normalize & gain acceptance for ALL kids and families who find themselves dealing with speech & language delays. Again, I totally respect your desire to protect certain aspects of your children’s privacy — but given how much you do choose to share about your family life, I hope and pray you might have a change of heart — as after months of private fear and shame about my daughter’s delays, I’ve recently found that sharing our story helps her, helps us, and in time I hope it will help other families in our situation. Part of what I — and all your readers — love about your blog is how generous you’ve been about sharing your thoughts, feelings, and family life with us; I hope you’ll reconsider sharing your experience helping Atticus conquer his speech & language challenges! I’m sure I’m not the only fellow mom who feels this way, right? Thanks and love to you and your beautiful family! xoxo

  9. Looks like such a great time! Next time can you pack me in your suitcase?! hahaha!

    xoxo

  10. Seriously obsessed with these pics! I loved seeing how much you truly love your family and the life you’re living! Happiness is key!

  11. Y’all are absolutely perfect. I look forward to your snap stories every day, this place looked so pretty and surreal! Thanks for sharing ?

  12. I would love for you guys to do a full tutorial and how y’all edit your pictures!! I just loooove the way they look.

  13. Looks like it was a blast! Love your swimsuit! I need to get a one-piece. I am kind of over the bikini thing, haha!

  14. These pictures are gorgeous and even though I’m craving fall weather, these pictures just made me want summer to last a little longer!

    And we adore Nancy Tillman books in our house. We actually got the book “On the Night You were Born” for each of our kids and we brought the book with us to the hospital and we had everyone sign it after they were born. The doctor who delivered them, the nurses who helped and of course our family who waited anxiously for their arrival and my husband & I signed the books with messages to our babies. I can’t read that book without getting all choked up! Such sweet sweet writing! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s my go-to gift for my pregnant friends!

Sorry for the long post. I’m done! ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Awe adorable!!! And I know what you mean about loving when Atticus holds you tight! My guy is 20 months and getting more and more independent! When he actually wants to snuggle me it is hard to let go!

  22. I love Bahamas.I love all islands โคโค
    I wish I can get there some day, maybe I will
    Honestly I like your kids’s happiness but in my opinion, you are too indecent.I can see your butt and I think this isn’t a good part of your body to share with us as you are a mom.
    Glad you had fun there ??

  23. Looks so amazing, what fun photos! I can’t wait to take my little one on his first holiday!

  24. Atticus always lights up my day ๐Ÿ™‚ I saw that David tweeted his frustration with people saying negative things to a two year old and – I don’t know what was said – but that is messed – up. Sending love to everyone in your family! Looks like you had a great time ๐Ÿ™‚
