SWEATER: Junk Food // LEGGINGS: Shopbop // Atticus – ONESIE: Amazon

When Atticus was first born we spent the first months doing an excess amount of snuggling in bed and lots of naps together. David sometimes jokes that I am like George Costanza on Seinfeld because in one episode he says “sometimes it’s the only thing getting me out of bed in the morning” ………… I love my naps. They are the best things in the world! Soo we got a new mattress recently and I am so excited about it because it is so soft and comfy! It is a Leesa mattress. They are an online exclusive company that lets you order online and have it delivered with free shipping, in a box to your doorstep. (because hi what’s more annoying than asking to borrow a friend’s truck and lugging home a mattress) so it’s extremely convenient! We have a cal king bed and it came all rolled up in that box you see above. We unrolled the mattress and watched it expand and then Atticus was so excited he went nuts running all over the mattress laughing. Apparently if you need a fun activity for a 16 month old just get a new mattress 😉

For every 10 mattresses sold, Leesa donates 1 mattress to a family in need which I think it really cool. I was nervous about having a mattress that I hadn’t first tried out but they offer a 100 night sleep trial so you can always send it back if you don’t LOVE it, but .. you will. On top of that, the first 50 readers to use promo code BAREFOOT75 at checkout get $75 of their order 🙂

*Thanks to Leesa for sponsoring this post.

  1. Hi Amber! I know this was posted a while ago but do you still like your Lessa? Thinking about buying one. Also, where is your bed from? Love how simple it is. I just Love your style and your adorable little babies!! Thank you!!!

  2. Hey Amber,

    I’m moving to NYC in a few weeks and thinking of buying a new bed instead of lugging my current one up a few flights of stairs! I looked on the site and didn’t see an option for firmness. On a scale 1 – 10 (firmest) where would you say it falls….espicially now that you’ve had it awhile.

    1. Hi Ashley!! That is a good idea!! It was so nice having it shipped right to our door! And I would say it is maybe a 7 on firmness. It felt like a big difference at first but now that we are adjusted we LOVE it 🙂

  3. Hey Amber,

    I know you made this post a while ago. I was wondering if you’re still loving your Leesa mattress? My husband and I need a new mattress and I remembered seeing your post about your Leesa mattress and I’m think we might give it a try.
    PS Your blog is my favorite and your babies are the cutest!

    xo Nicole

    1. Hi Nicole!! Yes we love it!! It really is amazing! And so so easy to order online and have it shipped to your door! I would give it a try 🙂 And thanks so much!! You are so sweet!! xoxo

  4. Hi Amber!

    I just wanted to congratulate you on your precious little Rosie, she is beautiful! I am sure Atticus is so excited to be a big brother. You have a beautiful family and you capture each moment on camera with such grace. I truly admire the way you’ve treasured every memory in this blog. A big congratulations to you for all of your hard work and dedication to making your dreams a reality!!

    Best Wishes to your family!!

  5. Hi Amber. I have a sneaking suspicion you might be in the hospital right now but if you’re not and you have a second to answer I’d be very grateful. If you are, sending tonnes of luck and pain free vibes your way! Your son and dog are the cutest combo I’ve ever seen- but do you ever worry about Chauncey snapping at Atticus if he’s not feeling all the attention? I have a cheeky spaniel whom we adore and have JUST found out we are expecting but our fur baby is a huge fan of kiddos. Don’t get me wrong, he has never approached a child or behaved aggressively around them in any way, but he will hide and avoid them as much as possible. It is making me pretty anxious knowing he’ll have nowhere to hide sometime soon! How did you approach introducing baby to pup and has Chauncey always been a big softy around him?

    1. Hi Rianna!! I am not in the hospital yet 🙂 Hopefully very soon!! And as far as Chauncey, he is a very patient and loving dog. But of course we pay attention to Atticus closely when he is playing with him. I love their relationship together and we are blessed that Chauncey is SO good with him. But when Atticus was first born, Chauncey totally ignored him for the first little bit and then he slowly warmed up to him. So I would definitely give it a try and go from there! I hope this helps!! And congrats on your pregnancy!! xo

  6. I could have sworn I already left this comment haha. Anyway, you are so good at sponsored posts! I know most of your posts are sponsored (congrats, you made it!) but it seriously doesn’t seem that way because you make them so fun to read still 🙂 Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you so much Emily!! That is such a nice compliment!! That is so amazing to hear, I appreciate it!! xo

  7. Hey Amber! I am getting a new camera for my birthday next week, and I love the quality of yours. Can you tell me what camera you use? BTW I am in love with your posts, and your family!

    XO, Kristen

    1. Hi love!! Happy early birthday yay!! And I use a canon 5d mark iii 🙂 I love it!! xo

  8. Hey Amber! I am getting a new camera for my birthday next week, and I love the quality of yours. Could you tell me what camera you use? BTW I am obsessed with your posts!

    Kristen

    1. Haha ahh I know!! He was loving it 🙂 Thanks for the sweet comment Angela!! xo

  9. This video makes it look so easy, thats amazing!
    Question- have you posted anything about Atticus’s big boy room or the new nursery? I just did a post today on my blog about the topic, since we are moving my 15 month old girl into a new room and a new nursery for the baby! Would love to see your picks too!

    xoxo http://www.touchofcurl.com

    1. It is super easy and convenient (big must haves for me haha!) And yes! I did a post on Atticus’ room a little while back. I will link it below if you haven’t seen it 🙂 And baby girl will be sleeping in our room in a bassinet until we move to a bigger place next year! Thanks for reading Colleen!! xoxo

  10. I am so confused about this mattress?! It comes in a box and rolls up? Seems very futuristic. I wish you posted this a few weeks earlier, I JUST ordered a new mattress, it actually comes on monday! We had a cal king and i ordered an eastern king bed. I figured the mattress would still fit, nope! So right now i have a GORGEOUS restoration hardware (major splurge) head board with a mattress on the floor haha.

    1. Okay so it ships to your door in a big box (pictured above) and inside the box is the mattress rolled up (air compressed). And then you open it and place it on your bed and cut off the plastic wrap and it will rise! Super cool and easy!! Hope that makes sense?! And ahh dang!! I hate when that kind of stuff happens!! I bet it’s a gorgeous head board too!

  11. Thanks for your input on this mattress. My bf and I have been hesitating to get a new mattress forever now but what is better then a 100 day trial period! Soooo we just purchased our Leesa with your promo code ????. Looking forward you trying it out. Thanks again! Love your blog ONLY blog I read, and I have a daughter who was born just a few days before Atticus so we love seeing his adorable pictures. Thanks for sharing so much with your followers. Best wishes to your lovely family and new sweet girl to come. Hope your feeling well your almost done! Take care!

    1. Hi Jessie!! I am so glad you ordered one!! Yay! I hope you love it like we do 🙂 Let me know what you think k?! Thanks for reading love!! You are the sweetest!! xoxo

  12. David is an amazing photographer! I mean, even this pictutes taken in your bedroom are amazing! The lights is perfect and the photographs are stunning… you’re so lucky to have your personal photographer haha

    1. That’s so nice of you!! Thank you! I will pass along the compliment to him 🙂 Thanks for reading Alice!! xo

  13. Hi Amber!!

    I’ve actually never left a comment on anyone’s blog before, but after reading some of the comments below I thought I’d take the time to leave you a note.

    I love your blog and Instagram and love the beautiful content that you create. Blogging is your job, and no one should expect that you do it all for free (a girl’s gotta make make a living people)! And not only have you turned blogging into your full time job–but you’re killing it! So keep doing what you’re doing, and just remember, TS said it best: haters gonna hate, so shake it off <3

    1. Jasmine!! Thank you SO much for this!! You completely made my night!! Thanks for the amazing feedback, and for understanding that it is my job! And I only share what I LOVE which is the best part 🙂 Thank you again!! Love you!! xo

  14. Such impeccable timing with this post – I was just talking last night with my husband about how I’m unhappy with our mattress. I’ve started sleeping on my stomach (which I never have done in the past) because it’s the only way my back is comfortable. I will definitely check this company out (because I love my sleep as well!!)

  16. I know you probably have a thick skin by now but don’t listen to people complaining about sponsored posts — it’s as if they want you to just be an heiress who needs no income and can pump out high quality content for free. It’s your JOB. It’s amazing what people will complain about when something is free…yeesh! I find your content to be authentic and your family to be so charming. I love it!

    1. Thanks so much Carla!! You are the best!! Thanks for the amazing feedback and kind words. I appreciate it so much!

  17. I discovered you blog a few weeks ago and now I am obsessed! Every time my baby is taking a nap I’m looking your old post.
    I have to say I love your hair posts, it is really useful with my long hair. Hope you do more of those!
    Xoxo

    1. Wow thank you so much!! That means so much to me! I am so happy you’re following along now 🙂 xoxo

  18. Amber!! I just adore pictures of A and his antics. I love your blog, keep up the amazing work and I hope you and your family have a happy Halloween! 🙂

    1. Thank you Darby!! You are too kind!! I hope you have had a great weekend so far!! xo

      1. I did thank you! My boyfriend and I were Han Solo and Princess Leia. Did you and David dress up? I saw A as a lion and melted. Haha please say you’ve posted pics! xo

        1. OMG that’s amazing!! I bet you looked fabulous!! And we didn’t 🙁 but Atticus and Chauncey were Batman and Robin one night and then Atticus was a lion on Halloween!! More pics on my Twitter and Insta! xo

    1. I know huh?! I could never go back to anything else haha! And thanks so much!! You’re so sweet! 🙂

  19. good to know! when me and the hubs move into our home a Cal king bed is the first thing we want to buy. I love the convenience of this mattress!

    XO JNESS
    jenessasheffield

    1. Agreed a cal king was a game changer for my hubs haha! He sleeps with like 90 pillows and has his arms sprawled out above his head so we definitely need one over here! And agreed the convenience is sooo great!

  20. It’s pretty disappointing that EVERY post is paid/sponsored. I don’t trust any of your recommendations anymore because it doesn’t feel authentic. I get you’re trying to make money. but the reason many of us started following you is because we appreciated and trusted what you wrote about. Now it seems like you’ll post about anything someone pays you for or gives you for free.

    1. My previous 5 posts were not sponsored in any way, hopefully you were still able to enjoy those! The only way bloggers are able to spend the time to gather content is because of sponsors! We get pitched many many jobs/sponsorships daily and turn down majority because they don’t feel authentic. We only support and work with companies we already use and/or have tried and fallen in love with. Hope you can understand!

      1. Thanks for clarifying this! I found this very useful actually. Really enjoy your blog!

      2. I just wanted to throw my two cents in here, and say your blog is one of the most (if not the most) authentic blogs out there. You share your life and your posts are always well written, funny, and relatable. Even with your sponsored posts, I can tell they are products you would normally use or recommend which is another thing I love about your blog! Just wanted to say keep doing what you’re doing, and don’t change a thing!

        1. Lindsey! Thank you so much that really means a lot to me because I do try hard to keep it authentic and interesting for you guys. That comment made my day so really thanks so much for taking the time to tell me that! XO

  21. I loved that sweatshirt since I saw you post it on instagram! What size did you buy? I am pregnant also and wondering if it is roomy or if I should buy up. Thanks!

    1. I have a size small! It comes oversized but it is kind of creeping on belly sweatshirt territory now that I am so far along haha so if you are worried I would get a medium and have it be a little more oversized! I always prefer more oversized than not and kind of wish I had gotten a medium! xo

    1. Oh yay excited for you to get it! It is kind of fun unrolling it and watching it puff up ha! 🙂 xo

  22. Everything is perfectly pillowy soft and clean and bright… with a monkey on the bed… just like I would expect your bedroom to be…and whomever it was that commented yesterday about the relationship between Atticus and Chauncey being heavenly adorable and sweet… they are right on… and if you could reply to me why the mattress is amazingly comfortable… yet unbelievably thin… I would appreciate that. Thanks as always, Amber…

    1. Thanks so much Ehren!! I always look forward to your sweet comment 🙂 Atticus and Chauncey miss you!!

  23. Love the happy faces! Fun photos of playing on the bed 🙂 I’ve never heard of a mattress that can be rolled up. How cool is that?? If I were in need of mattress right now, I’d be 100% down for trying that out. Thanks for the post!

    1. That’s such a nice compliment!! He totally does 🙂 And thanks!! We love it!

  24. I’m sorry but there is no way that is a california king bed. That looks like a full or a queen.

    1. I hate to admit it, but I was thinking the same thing. I have a California King bed & the mattress alone is 72×84″. Four people can lay on it & actually not touch each other. My bed dwarfs the full size double windows in my bedroom…
      Maybe Amber’s bed just looks smaller because of the camera angle?

    2. Yeah, I’m glad someone else thought the same thing I was thinking… That mattress looks much smaller than a California king or even a king size bed. Strange.

      1. Just went back to the new bedroom furniture post from last week. The bed frame from High Fashion Home does not come in a California King. ??? I’m confused…

        1. Yes that is right, we had to have it specially made for a cal king which High Fashion Home offers to do for any frame if it doesn’t come in the size you need! xo

      2. Haha I had to chuckle at these comments! If I were embarrassed for some reason about the size of our bed I wouldn’t mention the size at all but certainly wouldn’t lie about the size of our bed! I actually always joke how silly it is that we have a cal king in nyc because our room is so small a queen would make more sense! But my husband is 6’4″ and loves the length of the cal king.

        Here is a link to a screenshot of our order confirmation so you can see, lol. Address and tracking have been blocked off for obvious reasons..
        https://barefootblond.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/IMG_3573.jpg

        1. I always find it odd that people use their height over 6′ as the reason for a Cal King… My husband is 6’1 and we sleep on a queen, because a Cal King would be too big for our bedroom… there’s only a 4″ difference in length between a Queen/King and a Cal King….a Queen/King being 6’8″ long already, already long enough for someone 6’4. But anyway, the mattress may be a Cal King per the screenshot, doesn’t mean it wasn’t altered/angles used to make it look like it fits the bed… just saying.

          1. Tori, you find it funny people use their height as the reason to have a Cal. King? That is who it is geared for. My husband is 6’2″ and we love our Cal King, it is also narrower than a standard King, FYI

          1. It was a longer process but we had to special order a frame in a cal king! Its from High Fashion Home and if you want the same in a Cal King just call them, they can special make them in a cal king or king if they don’t have it listed on the frame you want! xo

        2. I’m glad this made you laugh because I was laughing to myself reading these comments, like why would you lie about you bed size? so random! and you totally do not have to justify why you have a Cal king, you guys want a cal king you can have a freaking cal king, it’s stupid people would even question these kind of things!

        3. I always get so annoyed on your behalf when you feel like you have to justify your posts (whether its people criticizing your parenting or something as silly as the size of your bed.) Anyone who is a true follower of you and your blog know by now that you don’t need to make things up. . People need to remember that camera’s don’t justify the real life object/scene. It captures a giant scene and smushes it into a little picture.
          Just keep doin’ what your doing girl. Your doing just fine!

    1. It was so so easy and convenient! We loved it 🙂 Thanks for reading Quinn!! xo

  25. Very tired of all the promoted posts. Liked you a lot better when you could come up with a post without bei paid for it. Now it seems like your life with your son is just another photo op. Disappointed.

    1. Agreed! Every blogger seems to have the same post. Pink Peonies did the same thing a few weeks back. Come on girls, inspire me with some real fashion.

  26. I love how you and your family have fun doing anything! It’s so adorable!
