This was minutes after she came into the world and she knew exactly what to do and how to do it. That is soooo amazing to me. Barefoot Blonde Meet Rosie Belle Birth StoryBarefoot Blonde Meet Rosie Belle Birth Story

Rosie Belle Clark! She is here and has brown hair, blue eyes, heart shaped lips, a button nose, and long toes and fingers (like her dad)! She is 3 weeks old as of 2:27am tonight/tomorrow morning – its gone by soo fast but also feels like she has always been here. Rosie lovvves to be held and cuddled and doesn’t really like to sleep unless we are cuddling up together. Which I don’t mind at all and really really really love – I hope she is always a snuggler. Minus the fact that I am pretty much a walking zombie and haven’t gotten more than a 2 or 3 hour stretch of sleep at a time since she was born. David asks to take over at night but even though I am so tired I really love my nights with her.

As for her actual birth, I knew I would be induced so I went in the day before my induction date for a check up and she saw that my water had actual ruptured and I was slowlllly leaking. She told me to head to the hospital after that appt so I ran home to give Atticus kisses goodnight, grabbed my bags and headed to the hospital. David stayed home with A until our good friend came over to sleep at our place and watch him through the night. (thank heavens for good friends, that was SUCH a stress relief knowing he was in good hands.) When David got there I had been put on pitocin and was having contractions, eating ice, and was busy watching Ridiculousness 🙂 . They broke my water the rest of the way and a little while after I got my epidural. My epidural this time was SO painful!!! Last time with Atticus I remember being shocked how pain free it was but this time around was a different story. After I got my epidural I wanted peace and quiet so we turned off the TV and just sat and talked and waited. I loved that part. My mom and sisters got there and shortly after was push time.

When it came time for me to push I was so nervous I was shaking so bad. I was shivering and wasn’t even cold at all! I don’t know what exactly I was so nervous for but I just knew I wanted everything to go perfectly and hear her sweet cry right away. She told me she thought I would only have to push a few times and I kind of disregarded it because my last doc said the same thing with Atticus and I pushed for an hour. Sure enough after a just a few pushes she was out! They let me hold her right away for quite awhile before taking her away to get weighed and all that. I loved that they let me hold her for so long. (I only got to hold Atticus for a minute or so). It is the happiest feeling in the whole entire world getting to meet your baby the first time! I mean does anything REALLY beat that?? It was so so perfect. They weighed her, gave her a shot, cleaned her a bit, wrapped her up and brought her back to me. She instantly wanted to breastfeed and has been a champ at nursing since which has been SUCH a blessing to me.

I don’t know if you guys who were around when Atticus was born remember what he looked like but they truly are TWINS! It is so crazy how similar they look! They both came out with those swollen lips and big cheeks. Atticus seeing her for the first time was absolute gold. He stared at her with the sweetest smile for a while before coming over and trying to give her big hugs. He gives her LOTS of hugs, lots of kisses (new as of the last 48 hours), comes and holds her hands or touches her fingers, rocks her bassinet… I have been blown away by how much you can see he loves her. It makes my heart so happy it could explode. Anytime we hold her up next to him its an instant smile. Of course he sometimes gets a little TOO excited and wants to poke or pat a little too hard, especially those first few days but over the weeks we have been teaching him to be really soft and he picked it up so quick and we are always right there to make sure nothing goes crazy haha. But I am really really proud of him.

This recovery was night and day with my last. You wouldn’t think just over a pound in a baby would make THAT much of a difference but from the delivery to the recovery – it was absolutely, hands down, so much better and quicker. I was really thankful for that because it was really hard for me those first few days to not be able to pick up Atticus or take him outside on walks and whatnot. I was emotional about him when  I got home because he all the sudden looked like such a big boy. I know this sounds so cheesy but any time I would touch his cheeks (okay seriously really cheesy prepare yourself, I was so hormonal) I would cry because they felt like big boy cheeks and not the squishy baby cheeks anymore. It was so weird, everything about him (looks) was different to me all the sudden and I would cry multiple times a day over the dumbest things. He is just so sweet and I am so proud of the person he is. I am also sooo happy my mom and sisters were around and took him out on little outings each day to make sure he felt special while we took care of Rosie.

I have my Rosie girl sleeping on me as I type this and it is pure heaven. All of us have been been snuggling her all day every day and she has been so amazing to have around. I can’t wait to watch her grow up and especially to watch her grow up with her big bro!!!! Love my babies so so so so much!

  8. Your little girl is beyond adorable! She seems like such a sweet baby! My whole life my nickname has been “Belle” which means an attractive and admired young woman which I know Rosie Belle will be. I kind of freaked out (with joy) when I saw what you had named her. That was the EXACT name I had picked in my head for when I decided to have a baby! My sisters middle name is Rose which is where the Rosie came from for me! I can not stop obsessing over how beautiful she looks!! Congratulations and I hope you have a very Merry Chirstmas. You have been blessed with one of the greatest Christmas presents by far!

    1. Thank you so much Chelsea!! You are too kind!! And NO WAY! That is so crazy!! You should totally name your future baby girl that too 🙂 Thanks again for the sweet comment!! I appreciate it! xo

  16. Congratulations on the birth of little Rosie – and I must add, what a beautiful name that is for such a beautiful little girl – I can’t wait to see her grow into a beautiful little girl.

    I bet big brother, Atticus, is more than thrilled to have a new member in the family? 🙂

  17. Congratulations to you and your family Amber! Your story is touching and beautiful in so many ways. I’m pregnant with my first child and watching your journey has been so inspring to me. Thank you for sharing your story. Xoxo, Meghan

  18. Amber I have been an avid follower of your Instagram and refer all of my girlfriends to your blog for inspirations for their own! While I started to follow you for all things fashion I was soon capitivated by your gorgeous growing family. I’m 30 and was never sure whether or not I wanted to have children and found myself falling in love with the concept through you & yours. I recently started a relationship with someone who doesn’t want children and have been battling back and forth on if I could live with that. This post was so moving to me and I cried when I watched your YouTube because your growing family is so happy in one another company. Thanks for inspiring something in me that I may have always known I wanted but will now willingly admit. Cheers to enjoying this time & gorgeous baby Rosie!

  19. Amber! Congratulations!!!! Rosie is just beautiful! So happy to hear you are doing so well and love reading all about you’re sweet family. Merry Christmas love gina

  32. OMG! Congratulations over that sweet baby. She is precious. Thanks for shearing with us this beautiful experience. <3 I know this sounds silly but I was kind of worried about how Atticus would react to Rosie. I am so glad he is being such a good big bro.

  43. OMG I cried the entire story. So absolutely amazing. I’m so happy for you. you are such an amazing mum and strong woman. And leave it to you to look like a Victori’as Secret model right after birth. (I have never looked worse, though I had no warning since he came 4 weeks early and it was crazy quick but very painful since I had no time for any kind of pain relief. I wish I had such beautiful photos). I wish you all the luck in the world. Take care of yourself. It’s hard on mind and body not to sleep at all so try to give some nighttime to David so that you get some sleep, I didn’t and was so ill for months and months. But of course most important is you do what feels right for you. Thank you for sharing your lovely family moments with us. You are such an inspiration! Lots of love to you all! Most beautiful family ever!

  44. Hello, this is such a heartfelt post. It has made me cry a little just reading it (hormones)! My little baby is due in January and I can and can’t wait to have this feeling. I say can wait as I love having my bump, all the movements and kicks but I also can’t wait to see his face and hold him.

    Rosie is so beautiful, just like Atticus.


  45. I literally tearred up at the end of your video when Atticus got all excited when he first saw her. Beyond adorable! Congrats on the beautiful girl 🙂

  46. The shaking is a side effect of the epidural ???? Someone probably already told you that in the comments – but didn’t have time to read them all ???????? I shook like crazy before pushing with both of my babies.

  47. I loved your story! Thank you for sharing everything with us, your story has been very useful and hopeful for all the women from all over the world.
    Everything seems perfect and I wish you an happy family life! xoxo

  48. I have been patiently awaiting this blog post & checking daily for updates! Your baby girl is beautiful & I hope you enjoy this special time with your amazing family! I feel like I personally know you 🙂

  49. This is the sweetest thing ever, your sweet baby boy and girl are just beyond beautiful. congratulations on baby Rosie. cant wait to watch her grow up through your blog and insta just like her big brother

  50. Wonderful pictures and great video too – I didn’t do anything like that when I had my two and these will be lovely to look at in years to come. You looked super great throughout the birth and lovely to have your family around you as I had my sister with me when I gave birth both times – she took the pressure off hubby and knew just what I wanted! xxxx

  51. Oh Amber, I have just completely welled up and gone all teary after reading this post. I love how beautiful and real it is. Atticus is the sweetest little boy with his baby sister and that is all down to you and David. I wish you all the happiness in the world with your babies! xx

  52. Congratulations !! She’s so beautiful, and we have the same birthday ???? Little scorpion

  53. Omg I cried a little on the super cheesy part haha!
    Love reading your Rosie birth story. I remember loving A’s birth story as well and honestly couldn’t wait for you to share Rosie’s!

  54. Congratulation! You just make me cry, so beautiful story. I’m waiting for our baby girl & we are very nervous. Wish you all the best & sending you a lot of Love from Switzerland.

  55. I cried after having my second baby more than any of the others. I felt like I was “betraying” my little boy for having another baby. Really weird I know I
    I think it was a hormone thing. I eventually realized that they were both blessings in each other’s lives. It got easier with each kid. There was always a little guilt for having another baby. I didn’t want them to think they had been replaced. Now they are 12,11,10,8, and 2 and one on the way. (I am so done!!) they are so incredibly close. Your son and daughter will be good friends. It’s fun to watch them grow up together. You can tell you have a big heart. Enjoy them every moment because it goes quick. (I’m sure you’ve heard that a million times. 😉

  56. This is such a beautiful story with amazing photos, I want to hug the computer! Wishing you and your beautiful family lots of health and happiness!

  57. Congratulations! Thankyou for sharing Rosie’s birth story. I had my first child 2months ago, so I’m really enjoying hearing what others birth stories are. Each one is so unique! It really is such a special (and at times challenging) time in your life.

    P.S I completely agree that there’s no better feeling that meeting your child for the first time. I hear it’s a bit addictive ????

  58. I have been following you ever since before Atticus was born and you seriously inspire me to be a better mother! I’m currently pregnant with my second and just watching your journey has made me so excited for my next and I just think you are amazing. This story brings tears to my eyes because I just can’t wait to feel all those emotions all over again. Also, you have to have the cutest family that has ever lived! Congrats on baby girl! The name is perfect!

  59. I lost it when you started talking about his cheeks, that is the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard! My baby boy is 17 months old and I know exactly how you feel 🙁 A and Rosie are lucky you have you as a mommy !

  60. This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen/watched! So incredibly happy for you guys! You have such a gorgeous family and are so blessed! Good luck with everything and I wish you all the best and look forward to watching the two little ones grow!!
    All the love – Bee xx

  61. Eeeeeeeeee!!!!! So excited for your family! She is just gorgeous! My 2 year old is Rosie and I adore her name. 🙂 and please let me give you major mom props on the breastfeeding pics! I didn’t think I could love you more. 😉 congratulations to your whole family! P.s. good job taking a few weeks off! I’m sure you had comments asking you to update your blog, but you just have to take the time to soak in those precious first weeks (or take a nap) 🙂

  62. So happy for you guys! We had our first baby in June (we were actually on our babymoon in San Francisco at the same time you were there last spring) and it is an indescribable feeling! Wishing you all the best! And many more bumps as David said ???? You are too good of parents and make too cute of kids to stop now!! ????

  63. You just make me cry ???? I’m so happy for you and all your family. I have a boy too, he is 11 months and believe me, I really understand when you say you cry multiple times a day, It happens to me all the time. I’m from Colombia, I am a single mom and my baby and I send you, Rosie, Atticus, David and Chauncey a big hug and thousand of kisses! Love you ????

  64. Congrats, you two! Having been a long-time reader I feel like I’m apart of your little family and it makes me SO happy to see you all so happy and healthy. Can’t wait to watch little Rosie grow up with Atticus <3 xo

  65. Congratulations on Rosie Belle! I experienced the same thing with the shivering. It is occasionally caused by the epidural. It didn’t happen with my first but with my second I couldn’t stop and if wa the middle of summer!

  66. So beautiful! Welcome to the world little Rosie. I saw you guys moved. I really hope you got the fur hats I sent before the move!

  67. So beautiful! I’ve been following since you were pregnant with Atticus, so happy for you, I’m 5 months pregnant with my first, anxious and excited! One question, what type of spray tan do you use, I’ve been wanting to get tanned but unsure what to use, and did you leave your chest bare because you are breast feeding? Thanks in advance! Enjoy your babies! Xo

  68. I love your cheesy, hormal comment part! I love when you can feel the realness of a post. So happy for you and your growing family. You are one blessed woman!! She is a BEAUTY!

  69. Oh my Gosh! That was very sweet, Amber. Your children are so very beautiful and precious. My Selena Charlotte is one year and a half and I cannot wait for her to have a little brother or sister. I wish you all the best. xoxo, Val (Argentina).

  70. I truly appreciate your honesty about the epidural procedure because I went thru the same thing and got a muscle spasm in my back which was extremely painful and scary. I thought I was paralyzed or something (I’m probably being a bit dramatic but that was my experience) and was shaking alot from chills, the baby was shaking with chills and the doctor told me later they checked both my son and I for drugs because of the chills and shaking. I was really upset because my first two births I delivered naturally and the time I decide to go with an epidural all that happened. It was really scary and painful. I completely understand being hormonal and crying about everything and I cried like a baby in the hospital after they told me what they did. I cried at home to due to the mere thought of someone thinking that. Moms are really sensitive after the birth of their baby and children. Overall, my son was truly a blessing and he is worth everything and more. Congratulations on your birth of your sweet baby girl. I enjoy your photos alot on IG and your blog.

  71. she is so precious amber! congrats to you and your little family! i love how genuine and real you are through your writings and pictures, you’re so inspiring. can’t wait to read more! xoxo

  72. Adorable!!!! My little is almost a year and totally understans what you mean with Atticus being a big boy! I am so looking forward to your blogs as a mommy of a little boy and girl! Reading about beautiful Rosie made me miss when my little was so tiny! Congratulations on the new addition!!!

  73. She is beautiful! Reading this brought tears to my eyes, reminding me of when my baby girl was born just 7 short months ago. I hope one day she gets to be a big sister to another beautiful baby! Congrats!!!!!

  74. Congrats!!!! She is so beautiful and I am so happy for you and your family!

  75. So beautiful! Congrats on another adorable addition to your family! ????

  76. Congrats on another beautiful, healthy child! U looked amazing during labor and delivery (how?!!!?) cute name too!

  77. I love this story! I wish I had my blog when my babies were born (3,2 and 9 months now). You will totally cherish having this story written down. I am so glad it was such an easier birth and recovery for you!

    Xo, tara

  78. Congratulations on your sweet baby girl. Reading this brought tears to my eyes as I was blessed with my first child 7 weeks ago. I was wondering if you would be doing a post baby clothes blog? I just had an emotional breakdown last night in preparation for going back to work (wedding planner) and none of my old clothes fit. Just wanting any tips and advice on how to dress as you transition from maternity to normal clothes. Thank you!

  79. Dear amber , the video was so lovely , thank you for sharing your happiness , i always love you and your family ????

  80. Congrats on your baby! I love that you pick such classy names for your children. Rosie is so precious! I can’t wait to see what you dress her in for the holidays!

  96. I was reading this post on my way home, waiting for the train to arrive and omg (this is so not me) I became so teary eyed, especially when i saw the ‘best moment’ picture. I couldn’t handle it, so I read the rest of it when I came home haha. Tears of joy for you guys. God bless you all! Rosie is such a cutie and so precious! I watched the video as well, her cry is the sound of pure LIFE<3 and Atticus just goofing around with you is the best. I adore him so much! Also you looked flawless, always on point. No matter with or without make up 🙂
    I wish you all the best of the best! I'm so happy that there is such a genuine blogger as you! Number 1 inspiration hihi

Thank you for sharing the photos and the video, they are just precious! Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl, she has an awesome Mamma for a role model and two fantastic guys (three if you count Chauncey) to love and protect her. What a great way to welcome the holiday season.

  105. Beautiful!! So special!! Now I’m obsessed with birth stories since my hubs and I just found out we’re pregnant with our first!! So excited. Rosie belle is gorgeous and you’re a beautiful trouper Amber!! Very best as you continue in your baby moon.

  106. This makes me so happy! I love babies, and have been worried about how my little boy is going to respond when we end up having another baby, hearing about how well Atticus is doing really makes me feel more calm about things going alright. Also, breastfeeding is just the beat when the baby figures it out so fast! My baby was like that and it was So Nice, since he always attached correctly I never got sore. I love reading about your sweet family, and am so grateful things are going so well for y’all

  107. Greatest news ever! Congratulations and thank you for sharing these adorable photos of your family.

  108. My heart is full. You all are so beautiful, congrats on your beautiful sweet baby girl. So much love to you all and I hope to meet you someday! xoxo

  109. I am so excited for you! My first baby is 4 months old. The shaking during delivery is from adrenaline and the epidural meds. (At least that’s what I was told.) I shook so much too and for a long while afterwards! I’m glad your labor and delivery went smoothly. I was shot for weeks afterwards, what’s your secret to such a fast recovery? ????

  110. I got weirdly emotional reading this post and I love seeing the emotion on your face and your husband’s face when you guys looked at Rosie for what looks like the first time.

    I especially got a little choked up when you were talking about how Atticus suddenly looked and felt like a big boy and that you were touching big boy cheeks instead of little baby cheeks. It was cute, funny, and emotional!

    Hope your family is doing well and stay strong, beautiful!

  111. Congrats on your gorgeous baby, Amber! Another post full of mamma’s love! Love the natural nursing pics, and you described so perfectly the feelings when a second baby arrives. As happy as I was, I felt so conflicted, like I was “cheating” on her two-year old sister by loving on her! Seems so funny now, but it IS an adjustment, and a super hormonal one at that. Glad it’s been an easy recovery for you!

  112. Such a beautiful story and pictures. Glad you are all healthy and at home. Can’t wait for my little boy to join us in 6 weeks! 🙂

  113. My grandmother immigrated from Croatia to the US and her name was Rose. She was beautiful and the most wonderful mother to ELEVEN kids. Also kind of funny coincidence since I know you and David have been to Croatia 🙂 Rosie is such a pretty, timeless name! Great choice. So happy that you have had a beautiful healthy baby girl. God bless!

  114. omg i feel like i have so much to say lol. First of all she is so stinking PERFECT OMG what a doll! i am so glad you shared that vid with us, i know that was a really special moment and I’m glad we got to see it too! Congrats to all of you guys 🙂 I am so glad you are back to blogging, obviously you needed that time with your babe, but I missed your blogs so much! Glad you are back and doing well 🙂

  115. Congratulations Amber, David and Atticus!!! Rosie is beautiful! Glad you are both doing well and healthy and home to enjoy this time. <3

  116. So so happy for you and your sweet family!!! Your baby girl is precious. So beautiful!!! I totally understand about crying because your oldest seems so big now.

  117. Awh, congrats! Rosie Belle is lovely, you have a beautiful family! xoxo

  118. I am soooo glad to see this post! I’ve been keeping up on IG and knew in good time you’d post all the fun details. 🙂 I truly am inspired by how you share your wonderful moments of mommyhood and all that it entails. I hope young women will take notes and be as amazing as you!!! 🙂 CONGRATS on this beauty joining your gorgeous family! I can’t wait to watch her grow and all the adventures she’ll take! Biggest hugs and blessings to you all!

  119. The first thing that crossed my mind when I saw the first picture of Rosie was “She is like Atticus when he was born”, they both are so cute. Your family is absolutley beautiful and you looked stunning while you were giving birth. I can’t wait to see more photos of your beuatiful family.

  120. Congrats! She’s beautiful and I’m glad to hear it went well. Enjoy it!!

  121. She is absolutely perfect! I loved all of your beautiful pictures and the sweet video! You have such a wonderful little family and I am so glad that you are willing to share parts of your life. 🙂

I love getting to read about your little family. You guys are the sweetest and you and David look so incredibly in love, its inspiring. congratulations to you all! <3

  123. Oh Amber Congratulations!!! Such a sweet post – Rosie belle is a beauty ????

  124. SO happy for you! Always cherish those moments with your beautiful children! God bless you and guide you through what the human is incapable of. Thank You for the inspiration and the lifesavers of the hairstyles.

  125. Congratulations! She is beautiful and your story is beautiful. I have two boys, exactly 17 months apart, just a few months ahead of yours. I have followed your blog since before babies and get emotional reading your stories about your babies because our experiences are always so similar. You announced both pregnancies while I was pregnant and I may have shed a tear (those hormones)! Mine are now 22 months and 5 months. The bond just keeps getting better! 🙂

  126. such a cute baby!!! congrats! love reading birth stories and yours is especially sweet!

  127. I’m so happy for you! You have such a beautiful family! Your Rosie is so cute! I remember Atticus hugging and showing so much love for Chauncey; I can imagine him being very sweet with his little sister. Have a great day!


  128. I started crying as soon as I started reading this. You are so open about your most private experiences and it is amazing. I am a mom too and this brought me back so many memories from last year. It is such an emotional time. I was the same with my dog as you were with Atticus when I got home 😀 😀 He had always been my “baby” and then when I came home with the baby he wasn´t the only “child” anymore 😀 Really, thanks for sharing, this is so sweet. My belief in good people always comes back to me when I read your blog. All the best for your beautiful family, inside outside, and I will keep reading your blog! Love!

  129. Ohhh congratulations!!! I got choked up reading this and I don’t even know you! Those 10 or 20 minutes after each of my 4 babies have been born is the most amazing feeling!! It is almost euphoric! I can never stop crying, looking at them and hugging them! It’s such a beautiful and amazing gift! You are absolutely right too how your other kids seem so big all of a sudden ! So weird ! It’s obvious what a loving mama you are and I’m so happy for you!

  130. You came back and the best way! Congratulations beautiful mom, Small Rossi is a clone of Atticus. That means it will be immensely beautiful as her big brother! Your family is exactly what I want in my life and I pray every day to make things right as you! Welcome back cute mom 🙂

  131. So sweet, Amber! Congratulations on your sweet little Rosie!! She is such a little doll and looks so much like her brother!!

  132. She is absolutely adorable….. but look at her parents so its to be expected. Congrats to you both as a new adventure begins. The happiest day of my life was having my twin daughters…. now you’re a mom squared too.????

  133. This made me tear up reading it this morning!! I am so happy for your family – what precious photos. What a blessing that everything went smoothly. Your children are so sweet and A is going to be the best big brother (sounds like he already is)! Thanks for sharing your joy with everyone 🙂

  134. This is the sweetest thing I’ve ever read. I couldn’t be more happier for you guys! You have a precious family and we are grateful you share it with us every day. Thank you Amber! Hope you enjoy your new baby girl 🙂

  147. Congrats, she’s a doll. I just had my second 3 months ago and I too was shaking uncontrollably. It was so weird. Just one of those side effects of labor I guess…

    When I read Atricus’ birth story it sounded exactly the same as mine. My son came out just one ounce bigger than Atticus!

    So my question to you is, did you do anything different this pregnancy? I’m terrified of having another 9 pounder! Haha.

    Again, congratulations. She’s so beautiful! ????
