Eight Months

A few days ago, on the 11th, Amalia turned 8 months old.
I did not forget to blog about it I have just been so busy.

Every morning I take her out for a swim, a real swim, as in she is learning to swim.

I teach her to swim bit by bit daily and she loves it.  She enjoys jumping in and she goes all the way under and I help her up.  
Very brave girl.  She is a water baby for sure.

Mostly I have been consumed spending loads of time with John and the kids enjoying everything life is offering us right now and the blog is slowly taking more and more of a back seat.

She is climbing up into a standing position and getting stuck.  I think she thinks she can walk.

Everyone here thinks I am crazy because I am always holding her.  And when I say always... I mean ALWAYS.
Moms here usually aren't with their kids, they have nannies for that, most kids are pushed around in strollers.  
I did this with the boys and now I am doing it with her.  Everyones theory is that it will spoil her and make her dependent.
My theory is that I do not have forever to hold her, so while I can, I will.

Whenever Ethan would fall asleep John would say he would take him to bed, and I would always so no, one day I won't be able to, and that day came sometime last year and I am happy I spent all the time I could with them.
Both boys are dependent and unspoiled, but we have a bond that is rare.

Everyone here is also in love with her.  They LOVE her eyes, they go crazy over her beauty, but then on top of that she is the baby that never cries and is so sweet, shy, delicate, a very soft but strong soul.  Everything I imagined disney princesses are.  

Anyway, I got some teeth pics finally.  Excuse the food and sand on her face.





 Just look at this little angels face.
She takes my breath away.  Such a beautiful child from the inside out. 
Happy 8 months Amalia!
We love you!

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
