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…

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!
