My friend Liz came over the other week and took some photos as we went about our day. Those are my favorite kind of family photos – when the photographer is just a fly on the wall observing. Lately we are always in A’s little reading nook either reading or cuddling or looking out the window for cars and planes. We are almost done decorating the nursery and almost everything is ordered and on its way for our family room. I am so excited for everything to be 100% done. It takes so long for big pieces to come!!

I am still recovering from yesterday in the good way because yesterday was just too darn good. We had such a good morning being lazy and hanging out and then we went to church where Atticus was an absolute firecracker. He went to bed for a nap after him and I took a bath together so his hair dried super crazy. We only had a few minutes to get him ready before we had to leave so we threw on a wrinkled button up and overalls and sneakers haha.. he looked like a little ragamuffin and was being SO silly all day. It went perfect with his little crazy outfit and hair 🙂 Rosie was such a sweetheart too. We love this thing she does lately where she will be in her swing and if you walk by or she gets a glimpse of you she literally lights up with the biggest smile and her whole body curls up because she is so excited! She loves playing lately and does this cute squawking noise that she thinks its so fun.

Hope you all had a good weekend!!! XO

  12. Your family pics are the best ones.
    Makes me want to start a family!!! hahahaah

  13. Wow, such BEAUTIFUL pictures my heart melts<3
    According to the pictures youre still breastfeeding rosie right? Have you ever had issues/struggles? Would you mind sharing your experience? I just gave birth to my 2nd daughter a month ago and i had an infection on one side and it was really ugly:( luckily i can still breastfeed her but only on one side lol.

    1. Aww thank you so so much!! And yes I am!! I want to breastfeed her for a year like I did Atticus 🙂 And oh no!! I am sorry to hear that! That’s sounds so painful! I haven’t had any infections but I get plugged ducts and they hurt so bad!! Other than that, everything has gone pretty well! Good luck to you mama! xo

  14. I totally agree on the fact that the pictures are sooo beautiful and natural when the photographer just disappear and capture sweet moments of daily life, like she did. Really love it !

  22. Hi Amber! Mind to share what filters on Light room do you use for pictures? I love your pictures!!

    1. Hi!! Thanks so much! But I actually use custom set filters so I can’t be much help there 🙁 Sorry about that!!

  23. I love you and your family so much and your posts – snapchat, Instagram or blog all make me so happy. Thank you for letting us be a part of your family and watching the blessing of your children grow up. They are magic 🙂

    Why does Atticus always take off his right sock/shoe? it’s so adorable when I see him running around like that but I don’t think I’ve ever heard you mention it. Just wondering if there’s a reason? Love that kids personality!

    1. Thank you so much Meg!! That is seriously so nice to hear 🙂 I appreciate it!! And there is no reason at all haha he just always tugs it off!! A silly habit I guess haha!

  24. I truly look forward to seeing your insta and blog photos and your snaps! I was thrilled to see you also had a golden and love how Chauncey and A are best buds! My husband and I rescued our golden, Chance, this summer and have absolutely fallen in love. He would love Chauncey and A! Anyways, your family is adorable and you are truly inspiring! Thanks for sharing your posts and vlogs!! https://browneyedbrunetteblog.wordpress.com

    1. That is so sweet to hear, thank you so much Lauren!! 🙂 And yes! They really are best friends, it is so cute to watch them!! I wish our goldens could play!! I know Chauncey would LOVE it haha! Thanks again for the comment!! xo

  25. Amber these pictures are so precious – I love them all! hugs to your sweet kiddies! xo christine

  26. I love these pictures too!! I would love a tutorial for that hair???????? Simply gorgeous!

  27. Hi Amber,
    Firstly, you have a lovely blog. My son is Atticus’ age, and it’s always fun to see other little ones.

    Just wanted to mention- I’ve studied education and linguistics and learned how important it is for babies ears to be uncovered. Language sounds need to be crisp and clear for children to learn them and distinguish between them. Also, when babies ears are uncovered they hear a great deal more incidental language, which is vital for prompt language development. So perhaps Rosie could wear her lovely little bow a bit further back, so it is off her ears.

    I hope this is helpful and the sincerity comes across in written text- It’s awful when other parents give advice for no good reason but to criticise!

    1. Thank you so much Kate!! I am so glad you enjoy reading my blog!! 🙂 And thanks for the tip!

  28. Oh these photos are just so gorgeous! Love love love!

    1. Thank you so much!! I will pass that nice compliment along 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Tami!! And I bet!! I already feel like Atticus and Rosie are growing too quick 🙁 but I am just enjoying each stage!! It’s the best!

  29. Rosie is soooo precious!! Your family is so beautiful, girly! I am due in a few weeks, also having a girl!! Can’t wait!!! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much!! You are the nicest!! 🙂 And yay! So excited for you!! That will come so quick! xo

  36. hi amber! im a college student in love with your blog, and i was wondering what you majored in in college/what career paths you had before you started blogging? thank you so much!! <3 <3

    1. Hi love!! Thanks for the comment! To answer your question, I graduated from cosmetology school in Provo, UT and I also took some college courses at Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University (both in UT). All of which prepared me for what I am doing today!! xo

  38. What a wonderful little family! Your children are so so so cute! I’ve asked this before, but do you have any fashion tips for a fellow breastfeeding mom? You always look so stylish! even when feeding your little one 😉

  39. I love the candid style photos too. Glad you had a great day with the fam and could capture these memories. I love that letterboard with, “Atticus and Rosie were here.” I’m assuming it says?

    PS: Trying to imagine Rosie’s squawking noise lmao

  45. Just adorable! Lifestyle/documentary photos are awesome and these are beautiful. Thanks for giving us a little peek into your day!

  46. I love family photos, especially natural ones! A and Rosie are getting too big, too fast 🙁
    My sister who is a few days younger than A is doing the same thing, she finds everything funny and is so silly… she has been reminding me of Atticus because she just learned to jump and even though she’s only going 1 cm in the air she finds it hysterical. As for Rosie her blue eyes are gorgeous!
    Just a question, but do you want more children?

    1. Thank you so much!! And ugh I know!!! Way too quick!! I can’t believe it 🙁 And oh my goodness that is too funny!! Definitely sounds just like A haha! And yes we definitely do! We just don’t know how many!!

  47. I love your green sweater! Lovely photos of you & your family …always 0:-)
