Barefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde^^I am not exaggerating when I say I find them cuddling like this ALL the time, every day. Atticus used to love to cuddle me in the mornings and drink his bottle but now he climbs off the bed and curls up next to Chauncey to finish his bottle. They really are best friends 🙂 Barefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde^^I laid down the blanket and Atticus immediately plopped down on it and just laid there for a few minutes haha good sign that we were running around the park too muchBarefoot Blonde^^This is his, “mom do you see that?!” face. Barefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde^^If only he knew how much I love this face he makes! His determined walking around face. Oh I love it so much.Barefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde^^I absolutely love how he is looking at Chauncey in this pic!!! He adores him!Barefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde^^I promise you I dont tell them to do this for photos (lol at even TRYING to get a dog and 16 month old to cooperate enough to listen to those types of directions) but seriously…………………… I mean how sweet is that?????Barefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde^^Oh the anticipation of waiting for your dog to come get you!

Not going to lie, this day light savings thing totally messed with me and the days have felt 3 hours longer to me! I love when a day is just so amazing it flies by and I am left wondering where the day went. I sometimes really hate days that feel 72 hours long. David is on a quick trip to a football game so this morning I took the boys out on a walk and planned to just wander Central Park to kill a couple hours til A’s nap time. One thing I love about living in NYC is being able to take Atticus into Central Park and let him walk wherever he wants and see where we end up. I could do that for hours on end and just watch him run around.. that is when I am most happy… and I think he is too. So today he decided to take a new route and we ended up in the most dreamy spot ever. It was soo quiet, no one was around and the leaves were bright red and covering the grass. I love quiet areas so I can let Chauncey off the leash and just let him run around so we stayed there for a couple hours then headed back to let A take his nap. After his nap we went back to that spot and stayed there til the sun went down and it was honestly such a perfect day. Nothing but happiness which is just what I needed! Those two wrestled and cuddled on the blanket, Atticus threw leaves for Chauncey to catch, he played his harmonica, and they were just soooo fun to watch. At one point they were chasing this squirrel in circles around this really wide tree, the squirrel wasn’t going up the tree just around and around and around haha, it was like he enjoyed them chasing him! I was a little bummed I didn’t catch it on camera because I feel like it would have been one of those Funniest Home Video type of videos but it was too hilarious, Atticus and I were cracking up hysterically. We got home and facetimed David, ate popsicles in the bath together after dinner, and now he is fast asleep and I am just feeling really grateful he is mine.

Anyways, I am not in labor (obviously) for those who thought I was 🙂 but for an update, baby girl has turned and is now head down (yay!!!!!) and I am 3 cm dilated! I keep having contractions, but not the serious kind yet. I have been going to spin classes almost every day to try and keep the contractions coming. She is measuring 41 weeks and is already over 8 lbs according to my most recent ultrasound measurements! (she literally looks CHUNKY in the ultrasound ha!) This is bigger than Atticus was measuring at this stage and he was 9 lbs 5 ounces when I had him so not going to lie I am hoping she comes in the next week! I would really love to enjoy the newborn stage a LITTLE longer. Over 9 lbs is just such a big baby lol. I went to my friends house the other day to see her 1 month old and she said she is 9lbs 2ounces so when I was holding her I was just in shock that Atticus was even bigger than that when he came out of me.. haha sometimes it is a little mind boggling. But I keep having dreams about her and I can picture exactly what she looks like… or at least what I think she is gonna look like. It makes me soooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!! Until then I am enjoying every moment with my sweet Atticus.

  7. OMG I’m fitting the need to ask you to upload pictures of your baby girl as soon as she is born. But, those first days are too precious to be thinking about anything else. I just hope everything goes perfect when she is ready to come out.
    Atticus looks so happy in those pictures you can be sure you are doing a good job with him. 🙂 I now want to go to NYC but it’s a pretty big trip from Chile and I am just not ready to get on a plane with my 10 months old Maxi. ;p

  11. Amber, he is literally the cutest kid I’ve ever seen!!! I love seeing pics of him with Chauncey. Nothing better than a boy and his dog. Atticus seems like a ball of sunshine and y’all are just too cute <3

  12. okay that is it I need to buy a golden retriever! I cannot believe how cute Chauncey is with A! I am so happy she turned! It is so weird how excited I am for you to have her LOL but I am stoked. I love when you write like this, it seriously makes me have happy tears! Anytime anyone talks about their babies the way you just did seriously makes me happy cry…. LOL my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over a year now and nothing is working, it really sucks cause I want to be a mama so bad but I find SO MUCH JOY in reading/hearing about other mommies and their babies!

And I am sorry to hear that 🙁 You will be an amazing mama whenever the day comes!! God has his timing for everything 🙂 Love you!!! xo

    1. I wish I was haha! But a few more days to go 🙂 Thanks for the sweet comment! 🙂

  13. I just love you’re photos of Atticus and Chauncey! They are both the cutest! I hope that you are able to capture them playing together on some of your next vlogs! Sending positive thoughts with your delivery! What an exciting time for your family 🙂

    1. Thank you Molly!! I love them together 🙂 And aww thanks!! We can’t wait for baby girl!!

  14. In the photo 6th from the bottom where Atticus is hugging Chauncey and Chauncey has his head down…they say that when a dog puts his head down like that it is sort of a doggy “hug.” Our dog does that all the time and she just leans against us with her head down. A form of doggy loving! So sweet!!!

  15. Hi Amber, my name is Christina and I work for the online marketing agency Webinetion. I tried to get in touch via contact form and somehow it wouldn’t send! Looking forward to your reply 🙂

  16. This was the sweetest post! I never usually comment, but these pics/ the story totally made my morning! So cute!

  17. This part of Central Park looks absolutely magical! These photos are so sweet – there is nothing better than a doggie as a best friend 🙂 I’m the same way with my pup, so I know how Atticus feels 😉 I hope your little girl comes soon! We’re all sending you positive vibes

  31. Aw, Amber, this is probably one of my favorite posts! The pictures of sweet Atticus and his pure joy and happiness, your comments on the photos, your post, your vibe from that intimate, loving day with your babe. I can just SEE your closeness and it makes me so happy! I hope this day was perfect in every single way! I can’t wait to see TWO baby Clark’s cuddling, being best friends, paying with Chauncey. They are going to be the best of friends. Love ya girl! So happy everything is going so well!

    1. Thank you so so much!! That is so nice of you to say! 🙂 I loved writing this post so much! I appreciate your sweet comment!! Baby girl will be here before I know it!! Thanks for the well wishes!! xo

    1. Thanks Tami!! And Chauncey has a lot of energy haha! You would be surprised 🙂

    1. I know huh?! So gorgeous!! And once it starts snowing here I may be wishing I was in California haha 🙂 xo

  34. this is the cutest post ever! So glad you had such a wonderful day in the park and how beautiful is it?!

    Have a wonderful weekend // lifeplusbe.com

  35. Ok. Seriously. These are the cutest pictures ever! Every time I see pics of Atticus and Chauncey it makes me want to get our son Nate a puppy of his own lol we have three cats who do love him but they just don’t have the same patience to let him climb all over them plus now he’s like bigger than them lol So glad to hear your girlie flipped for you! Did you end up having the EVC done or did she do it naturally? I’m shocked at how big she already is! My son was 8.6 when he was born and I remember having a few gf’s who gave birth a few months after me and seeing their babies at like 1-2 months old and they were JUST around 8lbs I was like what!? How did I deliver a baby bigger than a 2 month old!? Haha I hope labour comes soon for you! But obviously when David is back home because otherwise that would be stressful lol Good luck lady! xo

    1. Thank you so much Carly!! That is so nice of you!! And aww I bet your little man would love a pup! But cats are so fun with kids too 🙂 And thank you!! I did some acupuncture and some exercises and she flipped thank goodness! And I know huh?! I am convinced all my babies will be big for some reason haha! Lucky me 😉 Thanks again for the well wishes!! You are the nicest!! Love ya!! xo

  36. oh my goodness! your babies are huge. I am scared for when I (finally) get pregnant. My husband was almost 12 pounds when he was born, and I was 6 pounds but SIX WEEKS EARLY. And all of my siblings were at least 10 pounds. I am only 5’5″, so I get freaked out.

    But, I get how the newborn stage leaves so quickly when babies are so big. My cousin just had a 13 pound baby, and he looks like he is 6 months old. It has been hard for her!

    Best of luck, your baby is so cute I can’t wait to virtually meet your baby girl.

    Loves,

    1. I know!! I have no idea why haha! But as long as they are healthy I can’t complain 🙂 And omg 12 and 13 lbs?! ahh that’s so crazy!! And yes 🙁 I feel like they grow soo much within the first month! Why can’t they be little forever?! haha but we are so excited for her!! Thanks for the sweet comment!! xo

  37. You’re in my thoughts as you get closer to meeting your gorgeous baby girl!!! I’m so very excited for you and your family! Central Park is the best. I miss it so much and can’t wait to take my son there one day. Great shots as always!

    1. Thank you so much Andi!! I appreciate that 🙂 and yay! I am so excited to meet her!! I hope she comes in the next few days!! xo

  38. Ohh Amber he’s so cute! I want a baby so bad, hope she comes out healthy and can’t wait to see her and what you are going to name her. Have a nice day!

    1. Thank you so much Marina!! 🙂 He is my little stud! I love him! And thanks for the well wishes!! That means a lot to me!! xo

  39. Awwwwww Amber how sweet and darling they are!!!! These pics are just too adorable!!!! ❤️ Central Park is truly beautiful and those pictures are amazing!!!! Can’t wait for the baby girl!!!! ❤️❤️ U and your family!!!!

    1. Thank you Lori!! That is so kind of you!! 🙂 We are so excited for her to come!!

  40. Your thoughts and hopes for the baby girl are so sweet! Just like Atticus and Chauncey cuddling:)
    As for the photographs, they’re stunning! I’m quite obsessed with your blog and instagram mostly because of the “type” of pictures that you post: they’re always so colorful, bright and cheerful with a blurred background. I love them! I thought it was David’s credit but you took these pictures and they’re beautiful as usual.. so I congratulate both of you! 🙂
    I’m really curious: what camera do you have? I want to buy one so I’ll totally listen to your suggestions.
    Can’t wait for the baby to come!
    Xo from Italy

    1. I’m so interested in what kind of camera you are using as well, Amber! Do tell! Your pictures are always swoon worthy. I’m constantly scrolling through your comments to try and catch one where you dish on your camera, but I must keep missing that one! 🙂

    2. Thank you so much Alice!! That is so sweet of you!! I especially loved writing this post 🙂 And I am so glad you love the pictures too! That is such a nice compliment! We both have learned a thing or two 😉 We use a canon 5d mark iii! I hope that helps!! xoxo

  41. Yay!! Baby girl has turned!! You will soon have a newborn girl in your arms and a family of four! So excited for you all. Good luck with your labor. These are the most beautiful fall pictures I have seen. A and C are the cutest!!!

  44. Beautiful photos of the little stinkers! Wow, I forgot November was your due month, this one crept up fast! Atticus had us waiting forever! Lol. Well I’m glad you’re feeling good enough to spend the day at the park with the boys. My last pregnancy all I wanted to do all day everyday was sleep. I had no energy. Can’t wait to see her!

    1. Aww thank you!! I am so glad you liked it 🙂 And you are so sweet! Thanks for the well wishes!! xo

  55. I’m so happy she turned!! Now stay like that baby girl! Don’t worry about the size estimate. They are notoriously wrong that late into pregnancy 🙂 Often off by a whole pound or even two!

    Where are A’s jeans from??

    1. Aww thank you!! And yes! I was so relieved!! I can’t wait to meet her 🙂 And A’s jeans are from Gap!! xo
