18 Months

Crazy how quickly the last year and a half has gone by.
I cannot believe how tall Amalia has gotten.
 And beautiful.
 And Funny.
 And Smart.

Every where we go everyone is obsessed with, yep you guessed it!
                                 Her Curls!
Literally people all over the world are obsessed with them.
Second is her eyes. Her see through your soul eyes.

She is very shy with people and hides her face and giggles when people try to talk to her or stare at her (which happens frequently... as soon as we step outside our door.)

At home is a completely different story!
She loves to watch The Little Mermaid and sing with Ariel.
She loves loves loves playing with Kaiden and Ethan.
And she is a party animal!  If music is playing, she will be laughing and dancing.
She copies everything that I do and she loves helping me cook and clean.
Best of all, she is almost completely potty trained!
I know everyone said boys were harder than girls, but this happened sooner than I expected.

She still naps in my arms daily, but I have finally weaned her (yes, she only stopped at 17 month, longer than I expected but at least I know I gave her the healthiest start possible).

Overall I am obsessed with her.  We are best friends and we are all so lucky to have this crazy, fun, happy, sweet, troublesome little pitter patter feet running around the house spreading her joy.

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!
