Little Teethies!

We have a lot of teeth activity in our house.
First Ethan is over the roof excited that his tooth is (barely) shaking!
It has been tough for him being 2 years younger than Kaiden and the tooth fairy, and Kaiden having sleepovers, and Kaiden going on field trips etc., and now all these things are happening for Ethan.
Ethan is actually achieving much more than I expected in a short period of time.
He is quite the little mathematician.
I could not be more proud of his academic progress.

In other teeth news, Amalia's bottom teeth are about to break!
I did not see it coming because I didn't think she was teething, there have been no signs of it.
I thought, hmmm, maybe it's because she's a girl and she isn't developing as quickly as Kaiden and Ethan did.

And in my "gum check" yesterday I can see that it is about to happen.
Though I am excited, I am terrified!
I remember when Kaiden and Ethan got teeth, not a comfortable situation for me since I was nursing.
And I am still nursing Amalia.
I am scared, I will soon look at my daughter as she is a little shark.

I have actually been trying to get her used to the idea of a bottle to slowly start weening her.
She LOVES the bottle.  She thinks its a cool new toy.
She has no clue she is supposed to suck it. Right now I am just happy that the teething does not seem to be painful for her, that would break my heart.

In other news, we went to Oman over the weekend and I know have let my readers down.
I did not bring my camera.  I took no pictures, not even on my phone.
We sort of just disappeared.  I needed a break.  I started missing home so badly and did not feel up to my normal self.
I actually quite liked Oman and we plan on going back and I promise to bring my camera!
It is beautiful there and would be a shame to not capture our adventures in the Middle East!

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…

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!

Welcoming Spring

Going from living in Jamaica where Spring is Sun and sand, to Georgia where spring is pollen, to Dubai where it is sun and sand to Illinois.
Let's just say I was not expecting a massive snow storm!
I have never experienced snow like this in my life!
Amazing what a difference 9am to noon can make!
This is how they do spring here it seems!

We had so much fun!
Lots of games with the kids, just dance 3, wii golf etc.

Of course John took the boys out to make a snowman and snowball fights and even gave them a big job to make a little money.
I don't know how they handle the cold so well, it truly amazes me how long they can stay out there and be completely okay.
I of course stayed inside, I do not like the cold, not one bit.  I do enjoy watching the snow from the windows though, it is so beautiful.
I even fell asleep on the carpet in front of the fireplace!

We did have a small mishap.  Kaiden decided he wanted to warm up his pillow pet and it melted on the glass on the fireplace!
