Happy Birthday John!

A couple days ago was John's birthday! Yay!
I would like to be able to say I planned this fantastic day for him, but I can't.
Thursday is our Friday, so it starts our weekend.

I actually ventured out on my own on Wednesday to the Dubai mall to meet someone my doctor in Atlanta put me in contact with, she has a daughter 10 days older than Amalia and she just moved here as well.

I got there early to find a special gift for John.

Even though John is never a fan of gold I could not resist this gold theme we had going on.


And he loved it!

We did not have the romantic dinner we normally do.
The day did not have the "birthday" feel.
What were we doing?
Shopping! Shopping for our new home. =)
We are beyond excited about our move and have the keys but can't move until the furniture arrives.
Pretty cool birthday weekend I'd say!

And Amalia had a birthday gift up her sleeve.
On the way to the mall she said "dada"! And then she would not stop!
The whole way there over and over again "dadadadada" followed by laughter and smiles.  So sweet

I would have been upset if it wasn't his birthday since I have spent the past few weeks saying "mama" all day.

It was perfect.

Anyway, here are a few photos I snapped of the little sweetie.



This first one she posed, I think it is her "angelic" look!

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
