1st Date Night in Dubai

Okay, I am IN LOVE with Dubai!
I though it was pretty good, but last night, I am still gushing over.

Beautiful!
Amazing!
Breathtaking!
Extravagant!
Luxurious!
Pampered!
Exquisite!
Simply, perfection.

Okay, now let me stop talking about John and get to telling you what you really want to hear about, Dubai.  Lol.

I think it was by the marina where we went.  We had a friend of ours maids come watch the kids (can't wait to get our own!).  Amalia of course came with us (I am still breastfeeding, and this baby refuses to eat food).
So off we go.  This place was in a hotel, a very large, lavish hotel. There is a shopping area, I don't dare call it a mall.  Its indoors but they make it appear as though it is outdoors and it is beautiful.  Shame on me for not taking photos.  I have been so lost in this new experience that I don't always pull out the camera to capture every amazing thing.

I did get a few though.

We ate at a really nice Indian restaurant.  Okay, so I think this is the coolest thing.  Yes it was decorated impeccably, but when we sat on a couch looking thing we realized it was suspended from the air! Amazing.  Then, yes, there's more, when the food came out they came and got Amalia and disappeared with her so we could enjoy a romantic dinner together! I could get used to this!

This last picture was so sweet to me.  We went somewhere else for desert and Amalia was sleeping and we looked over and saw this teeny hand.  I love this girl.
Amazing night.  I am loving this so far.  As I'm typing this I'm skyping with Mummy Bowen.  Best of all worlds.

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
