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…

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!
