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…

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!
