Feels Like Home To Me

We finally got our shipment in a few days ago.
You would think that since we got rid of most our furniture before we left, to start fresh here, that it would be fairly easy.
No. Not close.  Who owns this much stuff?
Apparently us.  
I had no idea how much clothes we had.
And while unpacking etc. little Amalia, omg.  
She's cute, she's sweet, I love her, but she is crawling!
I thought she would perfect sitting before crawling. 
That wasn't in her plans though.  I put her here, I find her there. I can't leave her anywhere.
And then she wants me to hold her to help her walk... all the time.
As though I want her learning to walk anytime soon, no thank you!

The good news is she's growing so sweetly.
She is a very happy little baby.
And I'm a happy Mummy.
And her crib is here! In her own little quiet room.
And our bed is here!
My body is slowly easing the aches and pains caused by so many nights on an air mattress.
And because Amalia has been crawling every time I put her to sleep I can't leave her because I am afraid she will fall.
So the crib has opened up so much more time in my day.

And what do I do with that time?
I got all my spices back!
Definitely back on my A game in the kitchen now.
Feel so at home in there.
So excuse me while I go and get in my "comfort zone" known as the kitchen and whip up something for the family!

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 …

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!
