Recently me, my sisters and our husbands were watching old family home videos of us girls when we were little. We were basically rolling from laughing so hard at some of the videos (mostly me trying to dance at dance recitals and chiming in every 5th move because I couldn’t keep up lol) but 90% of our home videos we are in the pool!

We spent every single day in the pool growing up and would stay in there for hours only getting out for a popsicle or food. While we were in Arizona visiting family, we did that same thing with our kids. It was so much fun to swim all day but then I realized I wasn’t putting lotion on the kids’ skin after each swim so Rosie’s legs were starting to feel SO dry. I actually hadn’t ever felt them that dry before but being in the desert + swimming dried ‘em right out. For some reason I remember to lotion the kids up more in the winter because winter is so dry but summer can be just as dry especially with all of our outdoor activities. I also sometimes forget how good it feels for me to put on lotion after a day of swimming and it probably feels just as good and soothing for those lil babies! We brought our Aveeno baby lotion and body wash with us and have been making sure to keep them moisturized!

Hope you all are having a good summer!!!

*Thanks to Aveeno for sponsoring this post

  1. Hi Amberr!You’re gorgeous.I want to get your opinion about opening a blog.I am 16 and I want to open a blog like yours. What is the secret of this business.How can I be creative?Thank you❤️

    1. That is so kind of you!! Thanks so much!! We are excited for the future 🙂

  3. That Rosie girl is so cute!!!
    I had the same problem with my boy bcs he has dry skin. What worked best for us was to shower him right after the pool so no chemicals would damage his skin. And of course, put some lotion afterwards.
    Summer is so much fun!!!

    1. Thanks so much!! I will always treasure these pictures 🙂 And oh that’s a great idea! I will keep that in mind. Thank you!

  4. Love Avenoo! Thanks for introducing it to me. I recently got a few Avenoo products and I just love the smell, I could put lotion all day with the smell it has their body lotion hehe. Love your blog. I think it is so nice of you that your are keeping a side some money for your kids’ college. Please ignore all the cyber bully! Love y’all!!!

  6. Oh my goodness Rosie is just the cutest. Seriously, she is a beautiful baby. Quick question I’m starting up a blog and was wondering how compensation for your kid works? Are they held to the same rules as child actors or kids that are in print advertisements when you work with advertisers? Do you put a portion aside for them or are they paid separately? Just want to cover all my bases and trying to figure out how that works. thank you! !

    1. I was wondering the same thing – but just general curiosity….

      1. ^See my above response for the answer to that question!! 🙂

    2. It is totally different for every blogger! But for us personally, any sponsored post we do that is baby related, we put that towards their college fund/in their bank account for them to have when they are older. Again, that is just us. It is up to the blogger how they do it. We never make the kids “work” we always photograph moments that happen naturally. If we ever ask Atticus to take a photo and he doesn’t want to, we just do it when he feels like it. Just like any mom does with family photos or photos they take to document their life! This blog is a lot like a journal for us.

    1. I am so glad you love Aveeno too!! Thanks for reading!! 🙂

  7. Agreed!! Lotioning up is the best feeling! Cara Delevingne recently posted the most hilarious meme with Peter from Family guy batting his eyelashes. The caption was “how girls be feeling after they’ve showered, moisturized with coco butter and washed their hair” or something funny like that.

    (Sorry for the totally random reference but I know you also love the VS angels… although in this case ex-angel.)

    ANYWAY I was laughing so hard because it’s SO true. That clean, moisturized feeling is the BEST feeling– especially after a grueling workout or sweaty day at the pool. And I agree that the little ones probably feel the same!! Have I mentioned how cute they are? Rose seriously gets prettier every day!

    Happy 4th of July!!

    P.s. Okay I just looked it up haha I mixed up the quote a little but here it is for anyone who’s curious:

    1. Of course its sponsored. Nothing is never not sponsored on this blog. Just like Owlet was sponsored but undisclosed, because every other blogger with a baby did a sponsored post.

    2. Yes it is!! I am their brand ambassador this year. I should have added the disclosure and forgot to. Thanks for the reminder!

  8. So precious! Photos are awesome, but there is something special about videos of our childhoods!

  9. Love your blog and all the precious photos! What camera do you use if not a secret? and your teeth are so white!!! Your babies are just precious.

    1. Thanks so much Julie!! I appreciate that! And I use a Canon 5d mark iii 🙂 xo

    1. Thank you Laura!! And I hope you had a great Fourth too!! xo

  10. The picture of you and Rosie kissing is SOOO cute!!! It’s so precious. And I love your nails! In every post you have the prettiest nail polish on!! So props to you 🙂

  11. Awe she’s so precious! I have been realizing the same thing with my babes skin, love Aveeno for keeping them nice and hydrated! ????

  12. These photos are the sweetest! Your little Rosie is getting so big 🙂 Agreed that summer skin is just as important as winter skin! I try to incorporate lotion into my routine. Happy Fourth! xx
