We were blessed with AMAZING weather one day in Norway (the rest it rained!) and it was glorious feeling warm and taking a layer off! We drove up to Flam and stopped about a million times along the way at fjords and waterfalls and just pretty fields. It was seriously the best day and the highlight of the ENTIRE day was watching Atticus 1. pose for literally over 20 Asians who lined up to take photos of/with him hahah it was so funny!! He just sat in the middle of the grass and smiled and clapped. They all had their cameras out and were snapping away and would come sit next to him and pose with him and he would just grin for the camera. I don't know if I should have cared but it was too cute to watch him love being center of attention to care. It was honestly the funniest thing I was cracking up! and then 2. he found this little hill and went to crawl down it - I was so nervous because I thought he was going to take a tumble down it so I had my hands out ready to catch him but he maneuvered down it so well and was dying laughing the whole time - for some reason he thought it was the FUNNEST thing! So we watched him go down that hill laughing probably 90000 times. It was the happiest I have felt in so so long just sitting their laughing with my family with the most gorgeous scenery and I just felt really really lucky and blessed to call them mine. So you could say it was a good day!!
Then we got to a lookout point with a walkway that led to a glass wall - I was PETRIFIED. I was holding on to Atticus SO tight as if any moment the whole thing would collapse haha hence why he is not happy in those pics!! I would not let him down and he REALLY wanted to crawl! But finally David talking me into letting him down for literally 15 seconds and then I had a panic attack and picked him up again haha! I am the worst at imagining the worst happening ahhhh I really hate that about myself! Anyways - Norway was amazing!!! And now to see where we are off to next you can follow along on instagram!

Hej Amber. I’m writing to you because someone steall your personality and your photos.
Her name on instagram is https://www.instagram.com/hejaniaa/ and he has a blog http://hejaniaa.blogspot.com/.
Thanks so much for letting me know, I am looking into it 🙂
I’ve seriously been going through all your travel posts because they make me so happy! Hope that doesn’t sound creepy LOL. What lens do you guys use?
I am so glad to hear that, thanks for reading!! And we use several lenses: 24-70mm, 20mm, 50mm, and 200mm 🙂 xo
I don’t think that it’s racist She may not have known what specific country they were from and therefore did not assume that they were Chinese or Korean or whatever (it would be racist to assume) and instead she said Asian. I’m Iclandic but some ppl who hear my accent can refer to me as Nordic. I’m from a Nordic country so that does not offend me. There are plenty of examples of racism in the world this is not one of them… maybe you should pick your battles more carefully. Her husband’s Hitler mustache now that’s a different story ????
My idea of heaven.
It really is amazing there!! Add it to your “must see” list 🙂
AMAZING photographs! What camera do you shoot with?
We use a canon 5d mark iii 🙂
Oh my goodness, when I was first flipping through the pictures I did not notice the glass wall and were so surprised you got so close to the edge but now it makes sense! That is so funny that so many people wanted to pose with Atticus but it makes sense because he is the CUTEST!
Sparkles and Shoes
Hi Amber! Lovely pictures, you all look stunning, and I hope you had a wonderful trip. May I ask you; what size are your jean jacket? I bought one in a size 12 (which I normally use) and it was way too big. Now I don’t know if to buy it in a size 10 or 8…
it’s so fun to see you traveling with your baby! xo
Aww thank you Emily!! You are so sweet 🙂
Atticus is so cute and beautiful, I’m not surprised it was the center of attention. I had a panic attack only to see the pictures of you in the gazebo, imagine being up there. When I saw the pictures I thought that Atticus was crying in fear, it’s funny to think that he actually wanted to go down and crawl, he’s so brave.
Thank you so much love!!! That is so sweet of you!! And oh my goodness I know! It was so freaky! He totally wanted to crawl and explore haha! Babies are so funny like that! Thanks for reading!! xo
Looks like a dream vacation, I can’t wait to see your photos from Greece! Id be so ready for some warm sun after Norway!
It has been a blast!! We are loving it 🙂 Greece is amazing too!! Thanks for reading Ashlee!! xo
haha, i live in okinawa japan and asians LOVE blonde babies. I have a 7 month old blonde baby girl and everywhere they go they’re freaking out! It’s so funny. We just got back from the philippines and some people would just come grab her and take pictures. I just think it’s funny. so different from america! Love all these pictures by the way!
That is so cute!! I bet she feels like a celebrity when you go out 🙂 I am glad you like the post!!! Thanks for reading!! xo

OMG – The picture of Atticus on the little hill is the best! I also love that he’s already a celebrity. (Not that we didn’t already know this) haha. I’m also so happy for you that you are so blessed with your family (both your siblings and your family with David).

I love these photos! Absolutely gorgeous! I love the story you’ve told through them. 🙂
Thanks so much Jessica!! That is such a lovely compliment 🙂
I love how you travel with your baby and you haven’t let him set you back. It’s really important for women to continnue doing things they love after having a baby and also it’s very important to cultivate this mindset on your baby and get him accustomed to travelling so that he’ll like it when he’s older. I personally find it really inspiring!
Thank you so so much!! That really is such a kind compliment 🙂 You’re so sweet!! We love making memories with our family!! I appreciate your comment so much!! It means the world to me! xoxo

Thanks so much Angie!! You are so sweet!!! You totally made my day!! I appreciate your comment 🙂
Wow! Norway is stunning! I’ve always wanted to visit one day!
I love these photos of you and your fam. So cute!
Question for you…how do you keep your hair so bright?? I have been trying to use purple shampoo once a week and I think it is helping but yours is always so much more bright blonde and beautiful!!
Thanks so much!! We loved it!! Such a gorgeous place!! As far as keeping your hair bright, purple shampoo is great every couple washes! If you have colored hair, do you use a color treated shampoo and conditioner? I suggest that as well!! I also only wash my hair a couple times a week which helps maintain hair color too! I hope this helps!! Let me know if you have anymore questions!! xo
Love please please please tell me what camera do you use?
David makes the best pictures in the world! I can watch them for hours! You are so lucky girl:)
We use a canon 5d mark iii 🙂 And thank you!! I will pass the compliment along! Thanks for reading!! xo
