I have some more pics from London today AND a tutorial!! So if you want to know how to do this hair style just scroll to the bottom! And I know my braid got a little ratchet throughout the day haha 🙂

Gosh London was so amazing. Ash, A, and I took a hop on hop off bus tour and it was so fun even in the rain. We got to this stop with the best view ever and I wish the photos did it justice! I literally cannot wait to go back and show David all of the fun things we saw.

I know this is going to sound cheesy but any time I travel with just Atticus I always feel closer to him in the end like we are just best buds on an adventure together. I know I had my sister who was such a great help and is now a boss at getting a stroller in and out of a taxi, but anyone who has traveled with a baby knows that even if you have someone with you (other than your husband) its pretty much still just you and the baby most the time – I am the only one who can nurse him, I wake up with him if he has trouble sleeping, I change the diapers, etc. – which is not a complaint because I prefer it that way and I love having that job more than anything. Atticus had sleepless nights every single night in London.. he never adjusted which was super hard because the trip was very busy so I was constantly running on an hour of sleep but I swear moms are blessed with something in us that just helps us go go go on no sleep. I would feel so exhausted and sick and then he just gives me that big grin and its like I am ready for another full day. Other than the sleepless nights on this trip, Atticus is an amazing traveler and such a trooper. He absolutely loves being out and about and never fusses when we are going place to place and getting in and out of taxis and strolling around. And then in the end when its just us two on the plane coming home I can’t help but feel like we are even closer than on the plane ride there and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Love that boy so much it makes my insides ache just thinking about it!

  1. I already tried to do this braid and it is absolutely stunning! Everybody complimented it.
    Photos are lovely, baby is adorable, and you, as usual, look absolutely perfect. 🙂

  2. How do your son not have shoes on? Looks like layered socks, but no shoes and its that cold

  3. Did you weather proof your boots? If so, can you recommend a product? Thanks!

    and p.s. i have been DYING about your tweet with that camera & that person who came to see the dresser. hahaha. TOO GOOD
    anyways, you’re a babe!

    1. Haha oh my gosh I was dying!! I didn’t know if I should make a joke about it or be silent and I went with silence which I am pretty sure was the wrong avenue haha!

  5. I am taking my baby girl out of the country for the first time in a couple of weeks, and I am pretty nervous. Do you have any specific traveling tips for flying with a baby? She is 10 months old, and I’m still breastfeeding 🙂 Thanks!

  6. Hi Amber!

    I was wondering where you got the sweater you are wearing in the tutorial video from? I love it! And it looks so cute with this hair! <3

    1. She has a direct link if you watch her video on YouTube. It’s from Saks Fifth Avenue, and it’s by Vince 🙂

  7. Love this post!! That Telephone booth is adorable:) Wish we had those here. Think it is so awesome that you get to share your work experiences with your family, especially your little one.

  8. Hi Amber,
    I was wondering what camera you use. The quality of your photos is amazing!

  9. I adore these posts you’ve been doing about traveling with A. My husband and I are trying to expand our family and I can’t wait! Our friends all have small babies and my hubs always talks about how they say they can’t travel anymore or how they won’t come visit us until they baby is (insert number here) mos old. I showed him your blog and pointed out how ridiculous that is, because you just have to make the decision to GO and get out of your house, no matter how hard it seems. Anyways, I love you. And your hair is my dream hair 🙂 You encourage me to just try new things!

  10. I think I just teared up a little reading and seeing how a mother’s love develops and eventually takes over ever fiber of your being. It’s amazing the bond that is being built and being able to witness it is such a pleasure. Atticus is very lucky as are you. The trip in London looked awesome and as always you looked like perfection.
    Happy Holidays! BIG FAN!!!! Tiffany

  11. I love how you keep travelling as a new mom. Each child is different and of course some wouldn’t allow constant trips in different timeznes, but yay for Atticus for pulling it off. Some of my friends who are moms now only live for their childs and have lost any interest in activities that might involve themselves (except diaper changing) and it is great to see how you travel the world with him. Lucky you for having a great baby and the possibility to travel so much. The hair is as always on point.
