Our First Blog!!

  This is actually our second blog but since I had no clue what I was doing I somehow lost the actual first one (frustrating!).  I decided to go ahead and give it another try while reminding myself to breathe and keep calm.

Truth is I don't even remember what it said or I could just repeat the whole thing.  Anyway, this is John and my first time blogging, thought it would be cute to catalog our journey, I wish I did this long ago because I am sure there are many things from our past year plus some that we don't remember.

  And it would seem that now is a bad time to start blogging because we have been so unbelievably busy.  Got back from a 10 day trip to Jamaica, wish was wonderful, got to see my family and my Grandmother, who is looking well I must say!! She may disagree, she is however pleased with all the weight she has lost because of her illness.
Back to Atlanta and an immediate spring break, boys were going mad with nothing to do after coming straight back from a trip where there was always something to do (thanks to my wonderful cousins and family). Thank God for Jesse who entertained them for the remainder of their Spring Break (thank you, they had a wonderful time). I know it may seem like coming back from a 10 day trip to Jamaica will leave you feeling relaxed... WRONG! Super stressed, dealing with people... not easy, run away on a road trip? SURE!! 2 of my best advisers (Mummy and Lisa) put in a good word for Charleston North Carolina, done!  It was simple, quiet, romantic and beautiful, just what we needed.  Nothing like laying in the lap of the one you love watching the sky as you sail around on a boat... except of course being dragged up to see wild dolphins all around!!!






We always like talking to the locals, they will always know what the best things around to do are.  Someone told us about a tree called "Angel Oak" that wasn't far.  It is a huuuge 1,500 year old Oak Tree, it was Amazing! An albino squirrel was running around, pretty cool. 

It is great to be back home with the boys.  Back on a school and gym schedule.  Back to real life, I love that "real life" actually means something good.  =)

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.


 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

We Are Expecting!!!

John, myself and the boys are excited to announce that we are going to have a new addition to the family!!!!!  Excited, overjoyed, elated are a few of the words to describe how we all feel right now.
After having Ethan I truly thought I was never going to have another baby, not because I did not want one (because I did) but because, let's just say circumstances were less than ideal at the time.
John definitely did not expect to ever be...expecting... again either! But I guess we both never expected to find each other. =) This is something we have talked about since day 1, and the time is finally here and now!
First things first... Need that cocoa butter to keep everything in check!!
Next, baby naming, it takes me forever to find a name I like, so the earlier start we get, the better!!


I have lost 2 pounds but my tummy is obviously growing!!

I put on 40pounds each pregnancy, believe it or not, so I'm ready!

Thanx to Mummy and Daddy for good, genes, I always pop right back to …

Mr. and Mrs. John Benham!!!

This is the moment we have both been waiting for for years!
It was perfection.
Nothing short of magical.

We had quite a bit of time after getting ready, there were so many emotions, so happy I laughed, so happy I cried.

I love these photos and am so happy that every moment was captured.  Can't wait to see the professional ones!



                                Waiting for the go ahead
                                        It's time!!
                             Everyone ready to come down

With this ring...
You may kiss your bride!

Ethan is a true romantic.  Whenever we watch movies with happy couples he always says that they are me and John.  For years he has been talking about us getting married. After the ceremony when we came in he was crying.   He said he tried to hold it in as long as possible...                                            Whispering sweet nothings
