The other day we snapped some pics on our way to grab some bagels! Atticus loves to walk on his own now and sometimes without holding my hand and I am in for lots of chasing this kid because he is a total runner! But man do I love watching him waddle down the streets of New York giggling at every dog and waving to people. His new thing is hugging every one at the park.. he has finally started to listen when I say not to do something (like go in the bathroom .. he likes to open the toilet and throw my makeup around!) and he has been listening and when he decides to not do it he runs towards me smiling and I am of course cheering and doin that mom thing and he gives me a hug. So now that he knows hugs mean he did something good, he hugs (and kisses) all the other babies! It is pretty cute and I don’t mind that he comes to give me hugs all day too.

Hope you are all having a good day! We are off to Statue of Liberty today! xo

  7. Hey Ambe! These photos are lovely and both u and little A look adorable!!! Love this chic dress. Would love to know your latest toe polish?Looks so great for summer. Also like to know about your spray tan regimen as of late? Love to know what u used in these photos. Any tips about what u do to get it to stay while in water a lot or swimming? Thanks have a great day.

    1. Hey Meagan!! Thanks so much!! I am glad you liked the post 🙂 And I don’t remember the color, I got them done at the salon but I will a similar color online that I found!! And for tanning, I love Tanwise tanning lotion or FakeBake lotion! I also love Kate Somerville tanning towelettes, they’re so good!! I would apply the tanning lotion once a week so you will have a lasting tan even while swimming and such. I usually spray tan before vacations (like I had one in Bora Bora) but not regularly. I hope that helps!! xoxo
