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…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!

Settling Into Spring

Georgia has been absolutely beautiful for spring so far.
I love almost aspects.
The blue skies, the greenery, the flowers, being outside, having our waterfall back on, nights outside and so much more.
I noticed today that my seeds are starting to sprout in our garden and that makes me incredibly excited and proud. I even love the rain and the storms, every thing is so cozy and not cold!

And best of all, having friends and family to enjoy it with.

The parts we could do without is the pollen and i85 going up on flames.
