Top of the Rock is my absolute favorite view!!! I could sit in that window sill ALL day. We went up there for Davids birthday and it was so so so fun with my boys! Atticus in his bear suit makes me want to actually eat him because it is too good. I always have him in things animal related because what is cuter than a baby dressed as an animal?!?!

Speaking of Atticus.. on our subway ride home last night it was so hilarious because we were headed home around 5pm which is when the subways are packed full with people coming home from work so it was soo FULL. I was feeding Atticus these little dissolvable yogurt bites that he loves (I love them too haha) and so many people asked me, “those are soft right?” “he isn’t going to choke on those is he?” ….. I mean really?! And I also had a water bottle with marbles in it and the cap glued shut on it so he could shake it and play with it (he loves water bottles so add marbles and he is in heaven) and a lady came up to me and said, “make sure that cap doesn’t come off, he could choke on those!” AND in Los Angeles we were walking around and Atticus was in leggings, a tee, and socks with a light blanket just kind of draped across his legs and it was about 65 degrees so that was already pushing it on layers for my boy since he is always so hot in his car seat and a man came up to us and reached his hand in the carseat and pulled the blanket up over A’s shoulders and said “he must be freezing!!” (we were in short sleeves!!) … haha nothing like people micromanaging your parenting skills on the subway/street!! 😉

Hope everyone is having a good week – I am already excited for the weekend because then I get my cheat meal! Ahh!

  1. How did you guys get such good photos with no people in them? My husband and I were there on our honeymoon and it was so packed! It was all we could do to get a cramped selfie! Did you go really early in the morning or something?

  2. I love your style and your hair! Could you do a tutorial of this type of hair on youtube, please?
    Best wishes from Italy! 🙂

  3. Acabei de conhecer seu blog e gostei muito. Você tem uma linda família e seu bebê é uma graça. Já estou seguindo e parabéns pelo blog lindo.

    I just met your blog and really enjoyed it. You have a beautiful family and your baby is cute. I have been following and congratulations for the nice blog.

  4. You all really are a beautiful family, especially the way you look at each other with so much love. Hope David had a good birthday! Also, is there a hair tutorial for your hair in this? I’m in love.

  5. I love looking forward to a good cheat meal!!!!

    You seem like such a great mom. It is so annoying when people think they know what is best for your own children!! Although as a native New Yorker, I am surprised people talked to you on the subway!! Usually people keep to themselves but I guess people can’t resist giving their two cents! Happy Birthday to David! xoxo

  6. When my daughter was 6 months old she had a blowout when me and my husband were in Atlanta. It was pretty dang cold out too and I didn’t have a change of clothes for her, so we put her in a new diaper and just starting booking it for our car. This lady had the audacity to stop us and tell us to cover that baby up and how cold she must be WHILE smoking two feet from us! I mean the freaking irony! Zoeys 3 now but it still burns me up, mind yo biznit ha

  7. hey, I just stumbled across your blog and I love it. I started blogging when I got pregnant a few months ago. I was wondering if you’d share what kind of camera you use? Your pictures are awesome! Also, I love your son’s name.(:

  8. OMG is little A perfect or what? His expressions are so descriptive! Anyways, random question! I need a really cute “summer” jacket but I’m out of ideas! Are military jackets/anoraks still in? HELP!

    LOVE your blog Amber, I look forward to your posts!


  9. I know exactly what you mean about other people’s comments! As good as people’s intentions may be, it is your child ha! He looks happy in every single picture I have ever seen of him, and you can tell he is sooo loved!!! Oh and I wanted to tell you that I have been watching several of your tutorials on YouTube lately, and I am loving trying them out!!! 🙂

  10. Hahaha oh my god, if I got those comments I would flip! I hate it when strangers try to tell you what to do with your child, I could only take advice from family and stuff but it seems like you guys know how to care for him so keep doing whatever it is you’re doing! A’s seems to be a really happy baby.
    Kisses from Argentina!

  11. I die every time you dress little A in that bear suit! It’s too cute, and his face totally shows he loves it! I can’t believe of the times I’ve been to NYC, I’ve never gone to the top of the rock. I see pictures everywhere, and I literally want to go back JUST so I can see this view in person. <3

  12. Oh my goodness, what a cutie he is in his bear outfit! Love those crisp shots of NYC too – it’s a dream of mine to visit one day.

  13. I am sure you get this all the time, but your extensions are gorgeous! Did a salon put them in or where did you get them? Are they comfortable? The baby outfit is adorable by the way! Thank u

  14. Ha ha! The best parents are the ones who don’t have children. Love these pix! These make me miss New York. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  15. Happy birthday to David! What a great way to celebrate 🙂 Beautiful photos and view! Atticus looks WAY too cute in that bear suit! So cuddly! Oh gosh, I would go crazy with people telling me how to take care of my child, but I hear it happens ALL the time. There is no avoiding it, you just have to brush it off! I’m glad you didn’t take anything too seriously. You’re obviously an amazing mom! xo

  16. Your pictures are so cute! I’m curious if your planning on doing some sort of “tour” of your new apartment on the blog? I know it’s not an interior design blog or anything but I’m assuming (maybe wrongly!) that you downsized to live in the city. We are moving into a smaller place right now for location reasons and will most likely be bringing a baby into a 1 bedroom apartment so I’m curious to see how others make a similar situation work. Either way I’m really enjoying seeing you NYC adventures! 🙂

  17. People are so rude!! That has never happened to me but if, I Would be so mad! Nice pics xx

  18. Good job for keeping your cool with random peoples parenting comments… that would get so annoying.
    I love the pictures of you guys holding up Atticus by his 2 feet – they’re so cute!

  19. I think when people see a couple with 1 baby, they assume they have no clue what they’re doing…see a couple with 2 and you keep your mouth shut.
    I love the bear suit! I die! I love the photos that you do with David holding him up, and that one is so perfect in the bear suit! So cute.

  20. Haha people are absurd trying to tell you what to do with your child! But all you can do is smile right. How on earth does David get him to take those adorable standing pics?? They are seriously the cutest ever!! Also – I so feel you on the cheat meal…love your blog, you guys are the cutest!
