Honored to be a Mother

Ever since I was a little kid all I have ever wanted to do is be a mother.  Many times there are things I hope and wish for and when I get them I am disappointed, things/people rarely live up to my expectations.  Kaiden and Ethan have exceeded any thing I could have ever imagined a child to be, and I am honored to be their mother.

 I have had a rough last few days and I want to say a big thank you for all the prayers, love and support from all my friends and family.  Daddy is doing much better now, there are so many things I could wish to do to the people that hurt him, however, I am focused on keeping my mind and blog positive.

Mothers Day was very special and came along when I needed all the extra love the most.

  I woke up to breakfast in bed (yes, believe it, John cooked!) The bacon and omelet was delicious and very appreciated.  Not to mention the mimosas and chocolate covered strawberries!
On my bedside table were beautiful flowers...
And, are you ready for this (may not mean much to you guys, but since I have been at every concert he has had in Atlanta since I was 20...) JOSH GROBAN TICKETS!!!!!

The boys gave me all their hand made cards...
And Daddy, who couldn't walk 10 steps the day before surprised me by coming upstairs to wish me a happy Mother's Day, an amazingly sweet gesture (I love you Daddy!).

Got a Mani and Pedi from Jesse and his Mom (yay!)

And to top it all off (this one made me cry), Kaiden wrote me a book, illustrations and all...(Notice the Jamaican colored dress, so thoughtful)

The book goes as follows:

The Pretty Mommy, By Kaiden Harker
pg1
This book is dedicated to my Mommy because she loves me.

Roses are red, violets are blue, no one could have a better Mommy than you!

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



                                                              Mummy 1st

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
