Survived The Chaos

The past few days has been a total rollercoaster.  Went to the ER on Sunday, tests were inconclusive.  Had to see my doctor on Monday.  She was not sure what to think of the results either and gave me her best guess and suggested surgery.  I told her no.  Last night I regretted it majorly.  I thought I was going to die, ok, that may be dramatic, but my doctor did think I may die, seriously.  Worst case death, best case emergency surgery, said she was expecting my call.  I broke this morning and called her, and rushed to the ER... again.

Got more tests done this morning and honestly, it is a miracle how much the results changed in 48 hours.  I went in with my doctor planning on giving me emergency surgery and she had to rush over and tell everyone not to touch me, because they were all wrong and I was going to be okay.  Whew! What a relief.  So after major pain meds, a rollercoaster emotional day, I am home and feeling great.
My ex-mother in law has been keeping the kids for me, she is such a sweetheart.  She brought them to see me in the hospital, which really brightened my day.  Mummy and Barbara have been so supportive and offered great advice.  My poor father was so so worried, he can't stand the thought of losing another daughter.  My sister Binx has been at my side.  And of course, John, who has had to, and continues to take care of me since I am ordered to not do anything but go to the bathroom.  He has been so helpful and patient.  Thank God for miracles, friends and family who has been there for me and reminded me how blessed I am to have such wonderful people in my life.
Before all the chaos, we took a drive on Saturday, got to love GA, it can be so beautiful.  Here are some pictures from our pleasant day before the madness.

We found this cute little wishing well, happy I had my camera in my handbag.

My little Pumpins, what I live for.
 You are taking a picture with me, whether you like it or not!

Then we found this cute barn and stopped to take a peek.  The horses across the field saw us and ran over, one in particular had a special bond with me. Unfortunately the boys fell asleep and missed it.

 Don't eat me!
Sharing a moment
Always Grateful

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
