But I tried to narrow it down 🙂Barefoot Blonde^^He found David’s harmonica and has been carrying it around since (with the exception of when he dropped it in a gutter and we had to retrieve it the next day.. dont worry we cleaned it). But it is so cute watching him walk down the street playing it! Not sure much is cuter than that.Barefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde^^Atticus has to be hugging Chauncey while he drinks water….. hahaBarefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde^^Can someone please tell me what is better than this????

Central Park has been a little slow with its foliage! Everyone has been sharing photos of colorful trees but most of the trees (at least in the area we are) are still green with a few here and there that have changed. BUT since our previous ‘spot’ in the park is now blocked off and no one is allowed on it, we found a new spot and it has these gorgeous trees that are all colorful and amazing. I have really been hoping that Central Park is still colorful and has its foliage by the time I have the baby! I know she won’t “enjoy” the leaves but I dream of taking her on her first walk through the fall leaves in Central Park. Does that not sound so dreamy?

These are some of my all time favorite photos of Atticus! They make me so happy, I really really really dont want him to grow any bigger. I love more than anything watching him run around the park in his little boots. He loves those boots and always brings them to me anytime he wants to go outside 🙂 He is getting so big he can open the drawer (I say the drawer because we legit only have ONE drawer in our kitchen….. one drawer. THE drawer.) and in it we have our knives so it made me nervous that he would try to grab one. So David put a lock on the drawer today which made Atticus so sad! He went to open the drawer and looked at us through tears like “what have you done?!?!?!?” So he went and grabbed his boots and tried putting them on himself while he cried and we felt like it was his first “run away threat” haha! It was kind of adorable. Luckily he has already forgotten about it.. for now.

My favorite coat from last year was my kelly green coat from J. Crew so this year I ordered the same coat in this pale ginger and the neon coral… I intended to return one of them and see which I liked better in person but fell hard for both! Does J. Crew not have THEE best color selection??? I want one of these coats in every single color! I snagged them 25% off.. they are still 25% off (CODE: FALLSALE) and I am not sure how long this lasts so snag them while you can! Its also 40% off sale items and J. Crew is one place where I feel like most things end up going on sale (not just the non popular items that don’t sell 😉 ) so I like to snag sale items as often as possible.

    xx

  6. Oh my gosh… I so know and love that face of pure joy babies get at the most simple things. The other day my baby was running back and forth between me and my husband giving us each a hug before running back the other way – I literally have never seen such happy smiles or heard such happy laughs. I just love how easy it is for babies to be SOO happy. Wish I was that easily satisfied LOL. Also I am so envious of your New York life, how cool to live near central park. We come up every now and then since we are only a few hours away and it always makes me want to move to the city! ANYways that was a long comment.

    xoxo, rach

    1. Right?! It’s my favorite thing ever!! I wish I was that easily entertained too haha! And I just have to say that I love hearing about your little one 🙂 You seem like such a sweet mama!! Thanks for the sweet comment, I loved it!! xo

  7. Amber! I have been following your blog for a couple years now, and I’m obsessed with your beautiful family and fun adventures!! I have to ask – what camera do you use? Congrats on your soon-to-be baby!! Take care! XO

    1. Thank you so much Sierra!! I am so glad you follow along 🙂 And I use a canon 5d mark iii!! xo

    1. Thank you so much!! I am glad you liked the post 🙂 And I agree, I am loving this age!! So so fun!

  8. I totally know what you mean about keeping Atticus at this age forever! From here until about 3, those are the best years ever! That said, just wait . . you’ll find something to love about each year! Enjoy!

    1. I have heard that and I am looking forward to it 🙂 Thanks for the sweet comment!! xo

  9. These pictures are seriously so beautiful and heartwarming! I love them! How great is it that you’ll have so many beautiful pictures of you and your family to look back on over the years!

  10. please forgive me for being THIS annoying person, but your photos might be the best out there on any personal blog. WHAT camera and lens does david shoot with? I know that’s not the whole secret, but it’s a start. <3

    1. Ahh thank you love!! That is such a nice compliment!! We use a canon 5d mark iii with several lenses: 24-70, 20mm, 50mm and 200mm 🙂 xo

  11. Girl you look so awesome!!! I can’t wait to “meet” your beautiful princess soon! And damn you look good when you are pregnant. And yes i agree, J.Crew have the best and most colourful clothing, i just wish we had one in Australia 🙁

    1. You are the best!! Thanks for making my night!! And aww I know!! I can’t wait yay!! xo

  12. These are photos to be treasured always… A mother and son never looked so close and comfortable… and so beautiful. The first thing I thought was… Gosh… Pink??? Well, whatever, let’s give a go… And the contrast between pale pink and rustic autumn colors… themselves so light… could not be more intense and make such a bold statement. It is as inventive and ingenuous as everything that you put on yourself… and I think it is as lovely an understated statement as I think Atticus’ ears are ones never to be forgotten 🙂

  13. I wish we had enough leaves falling in SoCal to romp around in them. For now, we just pick up sticks on our walks, LOL. And I love that David has a harmonica that A found – I gave my husband a harmonica as a graduation gift years ago thinking he’d learn to play it for our kids. We now have a kid, by my husband still can’t play it, LOL. I may have to help my son find it. 😉

    What do you use to edit your photos? — Iphone and photos you take with your camera

    1. Aww thank you Kelly!! And I use a program called Lightroom for camera pictures and VSCO cam for iphone pics!! xo

  15. I LOVE the picture of A riding on Chauncey’s back! melts my heart!!! I NEED that pink coat. It never really gets cold enough where I am in CA to wear stuff like that but I may just buy it anyways!

    1. Ahh I love that one too 🙂 Thanks so much Tara!! And ahh I am loving NYC weather right now but once it is snowing I will be envious of your CA weather!!

  16. That little boy never fails to give me baby fever. Maybe the most adorable post about him — the photos are to die for, and my heart melted reading about his runaway threat! What a cutie. A happy loving boy. the smiles. The hugs for you. And for Chauncey. I just can’t! haha. Thank you, as always, for sharing! Made my afternoon. xoxo

  17. haha you are seriously so witty!! I love the part where you said it was his first threat to runaway! I could totally visualize the whole thing LOL even though he was sad, your description of it was really funny!

  18. All I can say is that Kim Kardashian literally has NOTHING on your maternity style. I love how you’re able to pull of these amazing looks, that most people wouldn’t think a pregnant person could do. And Oh God I didn’t think Atticus could get any cuter, but every blog post you prove me wrong.

  19. Andddd I died at the cuteness!!!! I think 12-18 months might be my favourite time for kiddos! I’d love it to last just a bit longer. They’re so adorable at this age. Loved the post! It’s so cute. You can just see what best friends Atticus and Chauncey are! So sweet 🙂 Your belly is totally adorable too btw. Can’t wait to see pics of your little family of five soon!

  20. You have THE happiest baby I’ve ever laid eyes on! I’m sure it’s because of your love and devotion to him. I enjoy following you and your family. A is precious!!! Also, would you mind letting me know what kind of camera you use? Your photos are great quality!

  21. so cute, Amber! his little boots are just too much! i love reading little stories about Atticus! i got the kelly green j crew coat last year too and it’s still my favorite. they seriously know how to do color. drooling over your coat and wishing i could splurge and get another! hugs to your sweet family! xo christine

  22. Atticus is so adorable! All those expression! You can tell he is going to be that kind of people that everyone likes.

    In my country we are in the middle of spring but weather has been really cold and rainy. I got stock with all my spring dresses I can’t wear yet! So thanks for telling us about the sale. I def need more cozy clothes.

    Always nice to hear from you! Xoxo

  23. ATTICUS is the BEST!!! Love his little face and all his expressions! the day is not complete without seeing your blog. 🙂

  24. I can’t get over how cute you guys are! You with your amazing looks(true beauty), super cute preggo belly, always on point with fashion. Atticus with..well yeah everything. Just as Chauncey and David(and obviously you). The four(five hihi) of you make such a wonderful portrait to look at. I think I’ll die when I see your baby girl on the blog hahaha. Seriously I can’t wait to meet her and see her grow up, just like with Atticus.
    And OMG I laughed so hard on the ‘run away threat’. Atticus has got the funniest personality, but I mean look at his loving and funny parents 😀
    May God bless you all! You are seriously the most genuine blogger ever. You are like a very inspirational long-distance friend to me, with the best pictures ever.

    Lots of loves to you all from Amsterdam,
    Lina

  25. I absolutely love these pictures. Fall is my most definite favorite season, so I want to go take family photos!
    You are my true inspiration and have been for over over 1 year and a half.

    Have a great rest of your week. Also good luck with you baby girl next few weeks, fingers crossed she does’t stay breached 🙂

  26. The leaves have been slow to change in Philly too! It had made me so impatient haha. These photos are absolutely gorgeous! Atticus is seriously too funny. Ugh love JCrew and both of those jacket colors! So pretty as always, Amber

  27. Adorable pictures, Atticus and Chauncey are precious together!! I have the same coat in pale ginger and I’m absolutely obsessed. Totally on the same page as you, J Crew always has the best color palettes! Wishing you a safe and happy last few weeks of pregnancy 🙂

Atticus and Chauncey are super cute and you are beautiful! Wishing you all the best in these last few weeks before the new babe arrives!

    xx Stephanie

  29. Your family is too adorable, and your pup is such a good sport! You can tell how much he loves Atticus and just enjoys having him hug him. Too sweet!

  30. I have been eyeing that coat as soon as it came out! I have been wanting a pink coat, and it looks so beautiful on 🙂 Also, the pics of you and Atticus are so precious. You are mom goals. That’s all I’m going to say. haha

  31. Love your coat and of course the pictures of Atticus are beyond adorable! He seems like he has the cutest little personality! If you guys want to see amazing colored leaves take a ride up north on the taconic. My husband and I did a couple weeks ago and they were soooo pretty!

  32. Your blog is always so inspirational. You have an amazing fashion sense. I follow your blog religiously, your family is quite honestly the cutest, Atticus is growing up so fast, it seems like only yesterday i was reading your posts when he was a new born, and now baby number 2 is almost here, can’t wait to meet her. Sending You, David, Atticus & Chauncey all my love. xox

  33. I loved your family photos. Definitely the cutest family ever, and you look adorable with your pregnant belly.
    Thanks for sharing this adorable time in your life with everyone. You look like a great mother.

  34. These pics are soooooo cute! I love your pink coat with the yellow leaves!! I think the world of Chauncey and how sweet he is with Atticus…you just can’t ask for a sweeter bond! I love JCrews colors as well…they always are rich and seem to pop! 🙂 I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

  35. Seeing all these cute pictures of atticus with Chauncey make me want to get a dog so my baby has a dog to play with! At 9 months He already is obsessed with animals but its soo much harder to find nice rental homes that are dog friendly and not too expensive. Also, hope you still have fall leaves to walk through with baby girl!

  36. I’m dying! These photos are so sweet! The relationship between Atticus and Chauncey just warms my heart. They say: the way a boy treats animals in his youth shows how he will treat his spouse later in life! He is going to make a wonderful husband some day! My husband was the same way with animals when he was a little boy (or so his mother tells me) and he is fantastic. You guys do such an awesome job with both of your little guys (boy and dog)…that little girl is going to be born into a family that will cover her in love and kisses. Thank you for sharing.

  37. These might just be my favorites also! I love the bond that Atticus and Chauncey have! It is so precious. Seriously swooning right now haha.

  38. I think you have a beautiful family and those are wonderful photos. Chauncey, though, does not enjoy being hugged/ridden. Even if he tolerates it, his facial expression in that photo is one of a stressed dog. Please, for the safety of your child and the happiness of your dog, teach your son not to sit on Chauncey. He is not too young to learn the proper way to handle animals. It will protect him from other dogs who may not be as nice as yours. If you don’t think I know what I’m talking about, read this article from an expert.

  39. Those photos of Atticus running into your arms are so adorable! He’s just the cutest baby.
    I’m loving that jacket, especially the color I usually gravitate towards darker shades in the fall time, but the light pink looks gorgeous.

  40. LOVE IT!!
    A word of caution on the harmonica — My niece had one that she used to play with all the time and they kept it in the diaper bag. Then, one day at church during prayer (while no one was looking) she fished it out and started playing it. My sister was horrified but it was truly hilarious! hahaha We still talk about it!
    Love the updates — Praying for your upcoming delivery! xoxoxox

  41. YES, J.Crew always always always has the best colors, especially in their coats. I actually laughed out loud at Atticus’ “run away threat” so stinking cute!!

    Have a wonderful Wednesday // http://www.lifeloveandbe.com
