Fun With Frances

I met someone, yes, a new friend, Frances, I am not as anti social as I sometimes think I am. =)
My baby doctor in Atlanta was also her doctor!
When I told her (the doctor) I was moving to Dubai she told me she had a patient in labor across the street in labor right now that is planning a move to Dubai.
After I moved here I got her information and we had a lunch date.
Oh, and did I mention her daughter was born 10 days before Amalia?

Lunch went well then this weekend we got the entire families together for lunch at a resort.

Well let me tell you, John and her husband Michael had an immediate bromance from the "opening of the conversation". (Inside joke) See that? ...inside joke...
That means we are friends, and I am funny, but none of you get it, but I amuse myself anyway.  
She actually lives an hour and a half away in Abu Dhabi but enjoys visiting Dubai so she had another visit with me yesterday.

Where we went for  lunch had great entertainment for the children, and a playroom for them which was nice for us.
And then about 12 swords came home and the party continued.
Amalia watched the boys and thought, hey, I'm a big girl now, I can do this!
Yesterday she actually grabbed a sword and started sword fighting with Ethan.
She is such a big girl now.

And just so you know, my daughter is sleeping which means I have a moment for a rambling blog so be prepared.

Please excuse my mess in the kitchen, no dish rack for drying, no dishwasher as you can see from that big empty space.
People like me, we have our priorities straight.
Nice rug, nice curtains... hand washing every night.
Don't judge, it's what makes me happy!

 Here is Amalias new friend (only friend) Collie.  I call her Amalia 2 because they look similar and sound exactly alike.

As I mentioned above, Amalia is asleep, and has been for a long time.
Want to know why?
Because she kept me and John up quite a bit last night.  Grrrrr.
Our shipment has arrived but is currently going through customs.
Even though we got rid of most our furniture we kept the beds.  
Know what that means? We were able to buy a couch etc. but are waiting for our beds.
Air Mattresses.
And Amalia, yes, no crib, so where is she, with us.
I think she is just as over the air mattress as I am and wants her crib back.
So I made her a cuddly little spot on the couch and she has been fast asleep.
Can't wait for our stuff to get in our new home!!

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
