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…

Christmas 2016

I can honestly say that I miss blogging.  Facebook "memories" option has made me realize how nice it is to be able to look back at our family life and adventures.

I will (eventually) try and get caught up on the past few months, because we all know that I have photographed each and every moment, but for now I will start with Christmas.

We started shopping later than normal but managed to get everything done with time to spare to relax and enjoy the season.

Mummy came from England, I did not realize it but this is only her first Christmas with Amalia!  We spent the day with great family friends, Peter, Debbie and their family.  It has been a tradition for many years to do Christmas and/or Thanksgiving with them.

As per usual we had Santa Jeaux come and visit along with all the kids friends.  It was such a nice reunion not only with our friend Santa, but the kids miss their friends dearly it is always a great occasion to get them together again.  I appreciate all the other m…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!
