While we were in Bora Bora we had some photos taken by a photographer for the Four Seasons Resort and takes family and wedding photos there which was sooo nice because rarely do we get good photos of all three of us on vacation! Its usually a selfie of us three or David taking them of me and vice versa.

Last night when we were getting Atticus ready for bed I was definitely ready for his bedtime and to get a chance to just chill (is that bad to say?!) and I was trying to get him dressed but everything was making him crack up hysterically. He is major – ticklish .. and he wouldn’t stop laughing! I then tried to rock him to sleep but he just kept looking up at me and crackin up. I was half “gggahhhh just relax and go to bed!” and half really really happy that he is so happy. (he still obviously cries like normal babies do! especially when he is tired -yikes.) but I hope he is always as stoked on life as he is now as a baby, he definitely brightens our home every day with his constant giggles. Even if he refuses to take naps and lays in his crib laughing at who knows what – I guess its a good problem to have and i don’t mind listening from the other room wondering what could possibly be so funny ha! Hoping we will get back on a normal nap schedule soon though.

Today we have so much to get done before we leave for a quick day trip to Chicago tomorrow! I am speaking at the Create & Cultivate conference and not going to lie I am really really nervous ah!

Hope you all have a good day!!!!

  9. I love how giggly he is, but nap time is definitely important. M baby girl has never napped great, and it has been hard. She is the best though, and I wouldn’t trade being her mom for the world. Good luck in Chicago! You will do amazing 🙂 Oh and I LOVE these pictures! I always say it but you have such a beautiful little family.

  14. So pretty! I would love for you to do a post about nyc and how you handle raising children there! I don’t mean that to sound rude at all, I also live in NYC! I absolutely love the city and would love to raise my family there but I feel like it would be difficult, I would love to hear your opinion on it! Do you guys plan on staying in the city long term or are you looking at moving at all? Seriously love your blog and have been loving the volgs lately. Your family is perfect!

    1. Thanks so much Annie!! And I love that idea!! I know exactly what you mean, thinking about raising kids in the city is crazy but so fun!! We will see how it is with two ahh 😉 We plan to stay for awhile yes!! We love it too much! Thanks for the suggestion!! xoxo

    1. Thank you so much for the confidence!! It means a lot to me!! And aww thanks!! You are so sweet!! Love ya!! Have a great weekend yourself!! xo

  16. Hey Amber, I got a notification that you replied to my instagram comment but since you blocked me, I couldn’t read it. It’s the one where I said it was disingenuous of you to discredit your photographer for taking artistic nudes (not pornography, as you seem to think) when you have no problem posing in thong bikinis.

    No worries, I can always ask you to reply in Chicago, I’ll also be asking about your claim that Free People stole your braid. Braids have been done since the beginning of time, Amber, but I’m sure you can confirm if you have a patent when I ask you at C&C. See you soon!

    1. Hi Claudia! Yes, I did block you, I found the fact that you were comparing me wearing a mildly “cheeky” bikini while on vacation with my family at all comparable to full on nudity that’s sole purpose is to be provocative. I am bummed you didn’t ask any of those questions in Chicago, would have loved to have addressed them in person! Clearly you get pleasure out of finding my faults and for your sake, I think its best you waste your time elsewhere. All the best to you!

      1. For someone freely posing showing side boob and side vag to attack the photographer and calling her work pornographic is extremely rude. Like all your tweets about your flight delay. Which you then deleted because you knew you sound like a whiny little brat. No worries, I wasn’t in Chicago — aside from Garance Dore, the “panelists” were one braindead moron after anothet. Not worth my time or money.

        I’ll go waste my time elsewhere, but not before I take some screenshots.

      2. Wow Amber,
        You just went up in my book, you handled this conversation with such class. It must be hard to deal with this type of criticism. I hope it doesnt bring you down! Sending love!

  17. that’s images are awesome…. I like your blog and video blog…. But I will want to something 🙂 Please you shoot videos always 🙂 Have a nice dayyyy 🙂

    1. Thank you so much!! I am so glad you follow along!! Have a great week!! 🙂 xo

    1. Thanks so much!! That is the sweetest comment!!! It made me so happy!! 🙂

  18. Really beautiful pictures!!
    I know you get to asked this a lot, but what kind of camera do you use and do you use auto settings or you set the camera up manually? Also is there any editing programm that you are using afterward to edit photos (i mean colors etc).

    1. Thank you so much Jessica!! And we use a canon 5d mark iii 🙂 We set it up manually! And the editing program we use is called Lightroom. I hope this helps!! xoxo

  19. I so agree with this. Putting your religion out front, in a way, marketing yourself thanks to it, and then obviously disobeying the rules . . . but then again, Rachel Parcell was passing off other people’s jewelry designs as hers, so not much integrity there in any case.

  20. Such beautiful pictures! What kind of camera do you use for all your posts? Always such good quality!

    1. Thanks so much!! We had a photographer take these, but we usually use a canon 5d mark iii 🙂 xoxo

  21. You look beautiful! I always love seeing and reading your posts… Will you please please do a make up tutorial? Your skin looks flawless!! Xoxo

    1. Thanks so much Kayley!! That is so nice of you!! And I have had several requests for a makeup tutorial, so I will definitely consider it for a future post 🙂 Thanks for the suggestion! xo

  22. You’ll do amazing!!!
    It’s funny, I talk about this with my friends all the time. After having two ice realized to never get too reliant on a schedule because as soon as it seems it’s sticking they change LOL the constant roller coasters they are from things like developing, teething, growing etc… But such a worthwhile roller coaster 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Roxanne!! Everything went great at the conference, so I was super glad and relived about that 🙂 And ahh I bet!! How old are yours?! It will definitely change everything up for us with two!! 😉

  23. this photo shoot is adorable. you will do great speaking in front of the conference!

    1. Thanks so much Avery!! The conference went really well and I just wanted to say I appreciated the support and encouragement!! xo

  25. You and your family are absolutely perfect. I love keeping up with you guys! I hope that when I’m older my life can be as perfect as yours!!❤️

    1. Wow thank you so much!! We are far from perfect, but you are SO sweet!! Thanks for making my day!! xo

    1. I bet!! I can’t imagine Atticus not taking any naps anymore!! I know they outgrow them sooner or later but naps are so good for mom and the kids 😉 haha!

  28. I think you might just have the happiest baby, he is ALWAYS smiling and seemingly laughing. The photos of you two swinging him between you are my favs of these, he is darling, and I can’t wait to see photos of you all with the new baby!
    You’ll do great in Chicago, everyone there is SO NICE! If you’re in to deep dish pizza, try The Art of Pizza and get the stuffed cheese pizza, no toppings necessary…you won’t regret it!
    xo, jill

  30. Your site re-design looks great! Good job Gadabout Creative!

    I love these photos and specifically the floral headband. When I first saw these photos from Bora Bora showing up on Instagram, I thought the floral headband was real and local flowers from Bora Bora that maybe resort gave you. Silly me ;P Good to know I can purchase my own if I wanted!

  38. Hi, you have a beautiful family! My husband and I have 4 sweet kids and we are passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and treating our family as naturally as possible. We use and sell young living essential oils and products. Have you ever tried them? If not I would love to send you some things to try, at no cost to you! If you are at all interested please email me @ Have a great rest of your week ????

    1. Thank you so much!! That is very nice of you! And I haven”t tried them before! It would be easiest if you sent me an email, and I can give an address to send samples too 🙂 Thanks!!

  39. These are beautiful family pictures! I just love the one of you holding his shirt tail as he tries to take off so cute! My son is similar. Usually happy and cheerful but doesn’t like to sleep. It’s a blessing, but it’s definitely nice to have some down time where I am not chasing him all over

    1. Thank you so much Carly!! And aww I love that pic too 🙂 And no way?! How old is your son? I agree!! I have mixed feelings about it haha! Thanks for reading love!! xo

    1. Your comment is so sweet!! It put a smile on my face 🙂 Thank you so much Yulia!! xo

  42. just the sweetest family ever! You guys are making me so jealous. Bora-Bora is definitely on my list now.

    1. Thanks so much Shea!! You are too nice!! Thank you for reading love!! And yes definitely add it to your list, it is amazing! 😉

  43. Love these shots!! I so get the “go to sleep!”- but then you miss them once they are asleep thing 😉

    Good luck speaking!! You are going to do an amazing job, I’m sure. Totally understand the nerves though… in college I couldn’t even make it through a presentation without turning red and getting so anxious I would shake before going up in front of a class. At least people are there to see and hear you and know that you have tons of worthwhile things to say!!!
