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 normal in no time. =)

 The beginning of the pregnancy was very rocky, but things seem to be stable now.  Still taking it as easy as possible, don't want to throw anything off.  The boys and John are my care takers, they are excellent at it! (Mainly keeping me fed!!)  My appetite is through the roof!!  Since I am already a healthy eater, and I want to give little Baby Benham the best start on life, I stick mainly to organic fruits, vegetables and juices... along with the handful of vitamins John ensures I take everyday.  Somehow I have no appetite for meat (weird) so I have to have ensure protein drinks, which are pretty yummy to me right now.

We are having so many changes in our life, all very positive.  Here's to the future and a little one!!!


  1. Yay!!!!! Congratulations to you both. Im excited about 'OUR' new addition ;-). I'm so happy for all the blessings God has in store for you and your family this year! I can't wait to see that beautiful baby that's been giving so much trouble! I pray for a happy, prosperous, and peaceful year for you and your family! Love you all.

  2. Awwww! I LOVE you Kindle!!! Cant wait for us to go baby shopping!!!! Tomorrow we will be living in the same State, I swear Im having the best week EVER!!!! xoxo

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…

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
