So we decided to make another vlog – I cant even tell you how embarrassing they are to watch back to me ha I literally have to post them and never look back because they make me cringe big time. I hate seeing myself talk on camera – its like ahhh I sound like that?! Anyways I normally would delete all of the weird clips of us goofing around but decided to leave them this time even though they are kinda embarrassing ha. So watch at your own discretion!

These pics were from our last day in Paris and as dumb as it sounds both David and I felt extra close to Atticus this trip and especially since we have been home. He was just so fun to have with us and I swear traveling builds an extra bond or something – we both would stay up for hours at night after putting him to bed just talking about him and laughing at the recap of our day. Thank heavens we have spouses because heaven knew we would need someone who would willingly tolerate and participate in marathon long conversations about your child! One day we were in Paris he was such a handful – just all over the place wanting to run a muck all over the city and wouldn’t just relax even for a second.. he literally almost tore apart Gap and we debated going and asking them how much we would have to pay them just to let him tear everything apart (birthday party idea?! lol) – I had no energy to stop him every two seconds (but did anyways, dont worry). The night before I had only got 3 hours of sleep because my acid reflux was so bad I had to sit up most the night and I just couldnt fall asleep so I was extra tired. It was the first time I had a day where I felt like “I can’t do this. I don’t know how I am going to handle two kids.” and I felt like I had no confidence in my mothering skills and was just feeling kinda down wondering how I am going to keep up with him. Then of course he comes up to me and hugs me so tight – just when I needed it and instant heart melt and it was all better. David and I had our date night and we spent so much of the night laughing our heads off at all the funny things he had done that day and I realized as much as I feel inadequate I am truly so happy that I somehow got lucky enough to be his mom and I love that he pushes me. I literally have no idea what I am doing and I am certainly not the mom that is giving her kid organic everything, has a perfect schedule, house clean, no cartoons, etc (props and an applause to you moms) but gosh is he (and me) happy so I am going with it! Sorry for the cheesy rant but ya know sometimes being a mom is like experiencing every emoji in a day and especially pregnant its like “HOW MANY EMOTIONS CAN I FEEL TODAY?” A lot. The answer is a lot.

  1. Love the dress! I would love for my maternity shoot? Are you open to selling?

  2. I love your vlogs so much!!! Your family is so beautiful and happy! Thanks for sharing with us! I have been inspired by you to start up my own blog and I was wondering, what website did you use to make this blog? Would love to hear from you and thanks again for sharing these sweet memories with us!!! xo, Amelia

    1. Thanks so much Amelia!! That’s so nice of you 🙂 And congrats on starting your blog! How exciting! I use WordPress as my platform and Gadabout Creative for my website design. I hope that helps!

  3. I love watching your vlogs! This made me so happy! I don’t have a baby, but already worry about what kind of mother I will be, so it is comforting to know that I am not alone. You have a very beautiful family! 🙂

  4. I love these vlogs! I want to travel when I have a baby so I feel like it’s nice to see what to expect 🙂 Keep up the good work!

  5. Came for the makeup, stayed for the gorgeous pictures and MATERNITY STYLE. Your family looks so happy.

  6. please do a home tour soon!! Also, do you and David try to travel like once a month?! how do you guys plan that out so well??!!! Please let us know, because my boyfriend and I are wanting to travel and its very overwhelming.

    1. We definitely will!! Thanks for the suggestion 🙂 And we are fortunate enough to be able to take our work with us when we travel. We both work from home so it works for us!

  7. Hi Amber, I feel like we are friends because I’m obsessed with your insta and snapchat (not in a creepy way I promise! Haha) anyway just wanted to finally comment and tell you how much I love your photos and your gorgeous family. You are flawless! The main reason I am writing today is because i can’t stop laughing at Davids comments on your vlog when you were nervous about riding your bikes in the street and maybe exaggerated a little bit. it sounded so much like me and my husband! Also my guy is Seinfeld obsessed too- now if I could only get him to take such beautiful pictures, and get my hair to look like yours, we’d be all set =)

  8. Hi Amber! Love your blog. So much hair and fashion inspiration! 🙂 I was wondering what type of ponytails you use when you do braids in your hair? I try to use the small clear ones from target but I can never get it to be tight enough because I can’t wrap it around my finger enough times if that makes sense. lol Need all the help I can get…Thanks!

  9. I absolutely love everything you said! I’ve been following your blog for a long time but never actually commented on anything until today. I’m about to be a first time mom myself and sometimes I just think of everything I have to do and what kind of mom I’m going to be that I just overwhelm myself! Seeing your child happy is the cutest thing. You are an absolutely beautiful and awesome mother! Thank you for sharing Amber!

  10. You guys are the cutest! You’re so lucky to get to travel to so many amazing places! Hopefully someday I can do the same! I love your style and your love of food! I think that we would totally get along ha ha 😉 I just realized that I was in your ward back in 2007! I recognized your parents in one of your older posts. Small world!

  11. Just loved watching your moments in Paris! My one year old watched too. Loved every second. Thankyou for sharing with us. Merci

  12. There are too many nice corners in Paris that I can see here through your beautiful pictures. How flawless you in that yellow maxi dress are! I love all of them.
    To be honest, having a happy family is what we all wish for. I am still single and sometimes I wish I had a family and a child and enjoyed being a mum. However, I know it’s stressful and how you deal with it, with lots of love, is amazing.
    Wish you all the best1

  13. Hey Amber, you’re doing awesome (you already know that if course) just keep smiling, everyone and obviously Atticus are in love with your smile and your awesome attitude.

  14. Amber, reading this made me smile. I tooootally have had those days! When I was pregnant with my fourth baby (he’s two months now) I cried allloooot because I was so scared I wouldn’t be able to keep up with my two year old twins, four year old annd continue making hair tutorials and still enjoy it all. I hated that I was so nervous about it but I just was. Then he came and I was proven to be so wrong. He is my safe haven when everyone is crying or throwing a fit haha, and somehow having him here makes me laugh more when that happens. It’s like I totally forgot how incredible it is to have a newborn in the house and they really do just make everything better. I’m sure when your little girl comes all those fears will instantly go away for you too. You are an exceptional mama and that little man adors you! I can’t wait to see this beautiful girl. 🙂

  15. Oh my goodness, I am more in love with your family than ever after watching this. I enjoyed every second – thanks for sharing the silly bits! 😉 I love that you and David adore traveling with Atticus. A baby shouldn’t stop you from enjoying life – a baby enhances life! Blessings, xoxo

  16. Wow, you need to get a life person, since all you know how to do is be a jerk and wasted people time with your horrid comments. They are a great example of a happy family and their little boy is so blessed having such young and loving parents. It’s so obvious they always put Atticus first. Keep your lame comments to yourself.

    1. Haha this is almost laughable. Amber your kid is a prop. You shill him out, and the video clearly doesn’t show a happy kid. Even your snap chat showed him awake at 3am in Paris so yep I totes believe he slept 14 + naps in Paris. The kid looks tired. Get a grip on life.

  17. I’m so so glad you make these vlogs!!! I love watching them! You three are the cutest family ever!!!!! You look so gorgeous Amber!!! Seriously the most beautiful mama in the world! If only I had the drive and know how to look half as good as you!
    Take care beautiful family!!! Xoxoxox lots of love from so cal!

  18. I loved watching your video and the goofy scenes especially. You have a beautiful laugh and voice! It shows how much fun one can have in life doing the simple things like twirling in a street, having a picnic, or chasing a pigeon. Even though we can’t all afford to go to Paris, we can all enjoy these activities in our hometowns. You are such a wonderful mother, and great parents. I love your yellow dress, you look gorgeous in it!

  19. If by laughing or smiling 90% of the day means he looks exhausted – then so be it! I will have you know, he is an incredible sleeper .. he slept 14 hours at night while in Paris and took naps at the hotel or in the stroller. No need to feel sorry for him, he is one of the happiest kids out there. We ran into Gap for maybe 10 min to grab a pair of clean sweat pants for Atticus to wear home, but if that helps you feel better thinking we spent our entire 6 days in Paris doing nothing but sitting in Gap then feel free to think that 🙂 We went to multiple museums and did PLENTY of sight seeing.

    As for using my baby as a “prop” I find that to be a disgusting accusation. We are blessed to be able to spend our days with our child and watch him grow and we don’t have to leave him during the days to go to work because we are fortunate enough to work from home. You better believe any post that is sponsored that he is in (that I could not have booked if I didn’t have a baby, i.e. our campaign with Baby Gap) all of that is going in HIS bank account that he will have one day.

    Please count the amount of photos and then count the minutes in a day – there is SOOO much that goes unshared. 90% of our lives are kept private.

  20. ^^^ You can type all of that and not have the guts to spell out your actual name? lol. Can’t believe people take the time out of their day to say such awful things. Maybe YOU should take a long hard look at YOUR life, considering you only know how to be an incredibly rude person to someone you don’t even know.

    1. Haha I have no problem at all spelling my name out. Eloise Rennie. I have no problem spelling anything actually, because unlike your mate
      Amber I can actually spell.

      Also, I couldn’t be less jealous. I live in the real world, I have a proper job that doesn’t revolve around taking selfies. I don’t post photos of my baby on the internet because I believe my life with my husband and baby is private and special. I travel and have real cultural experiences.

      1. First of all, you can get off your high horse, Eloise, because you missed quite a few commas in your argument there. You missed a comma after “mate” and after “Amber,” so it doesn’t look like you’re perfect, either. And my God. If the things she does with her life and family bother you THAT much, then why take the time to type in her blog URL to come and look at it? If you don’t approve of her life (which she doesn’t need your approval,) and don’t have anything nice to say, THEN DON”T COME ON HERE! You have too much time on your hands if you feel that it is necessary to take time out of your day to visit a blog you clearly don’t like and type a nasty comment. Atticus is not your child, so worry about your own.

        1. You’re wrong about the commas. I was talking about Amber, not to her.

          Anyway, as you were…

        2. You are missing commas in there. I also found other grammatical errors in your first argument. So the next time you criticize someone about their spelling and grammatical errors, you might want to make sure you type one spotless argument. Nobody is perfect, and no good is done by belittling other moms out there. I’m sure you wouldn’t appreciate it if people said the things to you, that you said to Amber. No one parents the same as another, so there is no reason to be rude to someone, just because they parent differently than you.

        3. Hayley,

          Amber opens herself up for criticism by broadcasting every detail of her life on the internet. Lucky she has sad little fan girls like yourself to defend her every move. She’ll be fine.

        4. Janey,

          I have actually never involved myself in any previous arguments on here, let alone any other bloggers page. However, the comment caught my eye, and I thought it was unnecessarily rude. That’s all.

      2. Eloise, I just want to say that although you have a right to your opinion, Amber and her family have a right to live life the way they want to. Blogging is a real job, even though you consider it not to be, and part of this job includes taking photos. I personally think it’s fantastic that they could look back on these photos and remember all the wonderful moments they shared together, while also providing helpful information/inspiration to others. Additionally, I think that Amber and David are truly unique and that their son is well loved and incredibly happy. I understand that you don’t agree, but it’s not fair to publicly shame someone for living a life that doesn’t match your own. Lastly, unless you spent all day every day with them, how would you know what Amber & David are interested in? Honestly, please don’t participate in spreading hate. Isn’t there enough in the world? If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say it.

    2. ^^^ i cannot believe you would write such a low, vindictive, innapropriate comment to a women who does her best to care for her child. Unlike YOU, I have seen, through blog posts and snapchat, how she makes him happy (and I don’t know her personally). I have never seen a child so cheerful throughout the day. So what if he looks tiered. He is a healthy, enthusiastic child who looks happy everyday…and that is whats important. Isn’t it? so rethink what you’re saying, her and David are GREAT young parents who have a good head on their shoulder. And last time I checked, going on vacation doesn’t mean you have to learn about the history…thats ridiculous. In fact this kid has an opportunity to see the world and that is very fortunate. What a lucky young man. so, Amber, let him run a muck !!!

      Also, I want to see you try to write a blog and not screw up a few words. She does amazing at hers.

  21. WOAH can you say…PEANUT BUTTER AND JEALOUS!! ^^^ hahaha I can’t believe you took the time to write all of that. Someone needs to get a life and stop judging others. Your negativity is what’s wrong with the world.

  22. I love that you left in all the goofy clips! It makes it more “real” and your vlogs are so cute! 🙂

  23. You guys are awesome in pics, but yeah I sort of had second hand embarrassment watching the video. Stick with the pics.

  24. Amber, I had a good laugh watching this vlog, Your family is so adorable! I’m such a big fan of you, If I ever run to you in person, I’d be so so happy 🙂
    Also, I’m going to a wedding next weekend and love that yellow maxi dress that you have. Do you think the soft pink color would be a good choice for a wedding guest? I’m only 5ft3, do you think it’d be too long? I am going to wear heels, but still hope that it’s not gonna be too long and dragging on the floor.

    -Lily from With Love Lily Rose

  25. haha, I love this, all of it!! Your video is adorable, the two of you are the cutest/sweetest/silliest fun to watch. And I think Atticus in the checkered sweater chasing the bubble is literally the cutest thing I’ve ever seen, I laughed (giggled) out loud just watching him! Your trip looks incredible and I’m so glad you had a great time. I love those moments with your husband and I’m sure having a little one just makes everything even closer! Much love lady!

    xo Angela

  26. I adore you and your family. You are so gorgeous. I pray that I look as great as you when I have kids. I also LOVE that you travel with your babies! It’s inspiring me and giving me confidence that my hubby and I won’t have to “put traveling on hold” while we are raising kids.


  27. I love love love to keep up with you guys! I would love to be adopted and go on these fabulous trips with you guys but a girl can dream right? Also, I have a blog myself and was wondering where I can get a unique URL and layout? I love how you have your Instagram posts all along your pages and I want a site that’s easy to edit with!

  28. Amazing you actually make motherhood sound so nice and bearable and love how real you are 🙂 xxx
    Looking gorgeous as always so can’t wait to go to paris one day 🙂

  29. As always such a cute post! Random but have you tried eating papaya as a natural remedy for your acid reflux?! It works really well! I don’t love the taste of papaya alone as much but it tastes really good if you throw it into a protein smoothie or an Acai bowl! I used to have really bad acid reflux and I would wake up with sore throats so I eat papaya every morning in my protein shake now and it helps 🙂

  30. I loved the video Amber! You guys r great parents, just look at how happy Atticus is. He’s just learning and exploring lots now and he’s lucky to have such supportive parents! 🙂 I love your blog, I look forward to it every week. Thank you for posting!

  31. Love this post and especially about how important your spouse is fort hose marathon chats about how dang cute/ funny our kids are!!! Would love to know what size dress you ordered for it to work for you for maternity, I am expecting in March and I love this dress but not sure what size to get. Thanks

  32. Oh my gosh! I absolutely love this blog/Vlog — each post of yours gets better and better!
    Thank you for staying true in each post and giving us a glimpse into your world with your wonderful little family! ps. You look radiant = pregnancy looks amazing on you!

  33. Amber you look absolutely beautiful in that dress! More because you can see how happy and in love you are with your family. You are an amazing and doting mother and can’t wait to see you with two little babies!

  34. the video is perfect! i love it! is so simple, funny and showing the real you and your family 🙂 you made me miss paris even more!
    amber. you’re the best mom! we all are in our own special ways, just the best for our kids! u’re doing great with one u’ll do even better with two babies!!!! *hugs*

  35. Loving all of your Paris pictures! Will you please let us know places to eat and neighborhoods to stay in? I’m going to Paris for my honeymoon in May and I have no clue where to begin!

  36. Amber, I am a mother of 3 little girls and I have been there sooooo many times! The important thing is that you are with him
    and have the documentation to prove it lol;) kids are just busy. You are doing AH-mazing traveling, working, being a mom and growing another person! Love your yellow dress. so pretty!!!

  37. Aw I love it! Haha it’s so cute! And looks like you guys had such a blast there!! I’m totally the same way. I used to take vocal lessons and the first few times I heard myself after being recorded my jaw hit the floor. I was like but my voice sounds so much deeper in my head! Why do I sound like a little mouse!? Haha it’s so weird when you hear yourself 😛

  38. Watching the vlog makes me want to visit Paris so much! I’ve always had a heart for traveling and Paris looks so fun.
    And that yellow dress Miss Amber, gorgeous on you!♥♥♥

  39. Olá Amber!
    Gostaria de saber se você segue algum blog? Se sim que blog é esse?
    Parabéns pela linda família!

    Ps.: Sou brasileira e não falo inglês, uso o google tradutor para ler o seu blog! 🙂

  40. I have a hard time looking at myself in video too! But you guys look like you have so much fun and I’m sure years from now it will be nice to have these videos. While we only see a glimpse of you as a mom, you really look like you are doing a great job!
    xo Adri

  41. The funny parts were my absolute favorite, I feel like such a dork because I am sitting in this study room just laughing out loud all by myself haha!! Love seeing your cute little family having a fun time in such a beautiful city and all the moments that are just so real.

    Also, I absolutely can’t wait to see your maternity photos, I know they are going to be just stunning!

    xo Mary-Katherine |

  42. I loved the fun, funny parts of your video. You should put more of them in normally! 🙂

  43. That yellow dress is beautiful. I’ve followed your blog for a long time and it is so sweet to see your family grow through your blog.

    A DIY Blog 

    1. Thank you Alison!! It means so much to me you have been following along for so long 🙂

  44. I loved this video! You guys are so cute! I love how real you are and so not afraid to be yourselves! Ugh acid re-flux sucks! I had it my last pregnancy and I had sleepless nights as well, tums were my best friend. You’re almost there though!!

  45. I absolutely love your vlogs!!! Please keep doing them. 🙂 you guys are the cutest!

  46. I absolutely love your vlogs!!! And I always go to your blog first for fashion and beauty inspiration. It’s so great to see such a loving and fun family with serious style and it’s definitely an inspiration for my future family. You send such a great message: don’t sweat the small stuff and do what makes you happy! 🙂

  47. This was the first vlog of yours that I watched and I just adore you guys! I love that you left all the outtakes in, it is nice to see you stunners being goofy and normal and see Atticus being such a little boy! “Oh now he’s eating rocks” My nephew consumed at least a pound of sand when we were in Barcelona a few years ago and then I thought “Oh gosh, maybe someone should stop him” but like, it’s totally normal, and they survive haha. Thanks for sharing! – Charlie,

  48. Please keep making vlogs! I love them so much!! It is so fun to see you guys being a cute family and I was seriously cracking up at everything Atticus did haha! You and David seem like such fun, loving parents and Atticus is so lucky to have you guys and your daughter will be just as lucky 🙂

  49. Maybe it’s because you’re my sister and law, maybe it’s because David is my brother, maybe it’s because Atticus is my nephew, but this post made me cry. As do all of your posts. Maybe it’s because I am an intensely emotional guy, or maybe it’s the goodness I see in my family, that everyone sees. (wipe away tears).

  50. This looks so dreamy! We all have feelings like that. Being a mommy is the hardest but most regarding experience in the world. Hang in there and just take it one day and hug at a time
    Dresses & Denim

  51. Love the Vlog! I can’t get over Atticus in that little bathrobe with his bare belly sticking out. Oh my stars! Hahaha! He looks like a little Calvin Klein model or something.

  52. I LOVE watching your vlogs! Please continue them haha and that yellow dress is stunning!! I wish I could afford a dress like that 😛 have a great day xxo

  53. This was ADORABLE! The entire video and post was just so real. Sometimes bloggers can make their lives seem soooo glamorous by only posting photos and content that makes their lives look perfect so THANK YOU for being YOU and for showing us the fun and silly side of your family and life. It was seriously refreshing and so fun to watch and read!

  54. As much as us mom’s want everything to be perfect, it never is. lol And that is the beauty of it all. You are such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your emotions and doubts at times because I feel the same way sometimes. It is hard to keep it all together and be the best for our kids, but we do our best and man are they just so entertaining and sweet about it. 🙂


  55. Do you know that your family is literally goals?! I meann so freaking adorablee!!!❤️❤️????
    Love everythinggg about itt!
    Please do some new tutorials I literally check your youtube channel everyday to check if there are any or not.
    Sad is the fact that i cant talk to you mostly the time cuz i really love talking to you and i wish there was a way cuz i need alot of advice from you and also i loveyouguyss!????????????
    Always make me so happy when i see you reply me its makes me really special and happy

  56. Amber, my darling, your human…’s ok. Trust me, a baby who smiles and laughs as much as he does is a testament to you and David. Boys have sooooo much energy (my sister’s baby and atticus are like a month apart- so i’ve seen it in action, and when your daughter arrives eventually they will be playing together so it does get a little easier) Your a working mommy, style guru , wife, and look damn good while doing it. Here’s to Good Health, laughter, love and trying everyday to do our best! xoxoxo

  57. You described motherhood perfectly! I have three kiddos (6, 4, and 2) and some days I feel like Supermom, other days I feel so defeated. Anyone can see that Atticus is one happy, cute, and sweet little boy!!! Great job Mama. 🙂

  58. It is so true that travel changes you as a family. It’s amazing but it can also be challenging and you really learn a lot about your partner and why you love them when you are out there on that kind of adventure – especially with a kid! I totally believe that. We just got back from a European trip with our little guy and we swear he has matured more in the past two weeks of travel than he did in the last six months overall *(he’s 4). We’ve spent the last two weeks talking about the trip and planning our next one. Those memories will last forever.

  59. All of your pics are just magical!! I cannot wait to go to Paris someday and I love getting location ideas from your posts 🙂 I love how you all are so gentle with Atticus, yet you let him be a rough and tough little boy. He’s going to be amazing with his little sis!! All the best!!!

  60. I LOVED this vlog! It made me laugh so hard, especially when you were doing your catwalk 🙂 You can just see how happy and content Atticus is so you should never feel inadequate as a mother. You will be a great mum to both of your children and who cares if they run riot and scream and cry – They are kids at the end of the day and that’s just what they do!

    You should definitely keep doing these vlogs. I absolutely love reading your blog but sometimes pictures just aren’t enough and I love laughing along with you, David and Atticus 🙂

  61. I love this Vlog and all your cute photos from Paris!! You all look amazing as always and I can never get over how cute Atticus is, I don’t know how you do it:) My husband and I don’t have children yet (since we’re both still in school — at BYU), but it’s so cute to watch you and Atticus and David interact and it makes me so excited to start a family! You see like an amazing mother and I’m glad I get to see into your life and learn tips and tricks from you!!


  62. I completely understand the emotion thing. I’m 16 weeks pregnant and think I experience about 1,000,000 emotions every single day. Parenting is such a roller coaster!

    Can I offer a suggestion for your blog? I love all of your travel photos, but I think it would better to include where things were taken. For example, i’ve been to Paris, but you definitely went to some places I never got to. I plan on going back again soon and think it would be super helpful to your readers to have some points of reference.


  63. You look absolutely breathtaking in all of these photos and regarding the vlog and your voice sounding funny… Oh my, I hate hearing myself speak on the camera, but some of the moments are too precious and can not be ruined by my silly voice “noise”. 😀

  64. Aww Amber I love this. Obviously I have no Idea what being a mother is like (seeing as I’m 19 with no children hahah) So I can’t relate like that but from just the snippets that we get to see (which I know are usually just the good parts) You are an amazing mom. Honestly, it will all work it ourself out and just like you made room for one little guy in your life- I think it will become that much easier to have two (they can entertain each other! haha) Its exciting and overwhelming and crazy and you are certainly making the best of it! You are going to be THE BEST mom to two lil stinkers 🙂 I have faith in you <3 Hope you don't mind MY cheesy rant haha. But anyways these pictures are spectacular and I'm so glad you guys had fun (even if, at times, it was a bit crazy with A) You always manage to look absolutely stunning! xoxoxo
