Life is so great right now! There are all sorts of new-s in our lives right now. That’s not news like in a newspaper, but ‘new’-s like new things going on. Beckett’s got a whole list of new-s and then we’ll get to the other things.
Beckett’s first, and most exciting new thing is his new tooth. I haven’t been able to get a picture of it, but it’s razor sharp and pretty dang cute. We were at a party on Saturday and I was talking to a friend. She was like “oh, Beckett’s getting a tooth” and I thought she was referring to the two puffy mounds on his upper gums (the two that will soon be coming in), so I commented on those two. Then she’s like, ‘well, what about that bottom one?’ I freaked out. I didn’t know about any bottom one. Anyway-I got pretty excited. Nathan thought I was going to cry, cause I got all red in the face, but anyone who knows me knows that’s just what happens when I get excited. So, no…I wasn’t going to cry, I was just very excited. (When this is the only thing you do, day-in day-out, it’s a big deal.) Anyway-he’s done very well with teething so far (as you can tell by the fact that we didn’t even know it was happening till it had).
The second new for Beckett is that he’s rolling around. As illustrated by the pictures below. He’s become very good at it. He goes from sitting, to face-planting forward where he sits for a minute, and finally flips over. He then gets frustrated being on his back, and so I help him up into the sitting position, where he starts through the entire process again. He’s a funny guy.
The next new is that he’s eating solids regularly now. And we’ve got the stink to prove it. He’s having big-boy #2’s now, and it’s really fun…especially yesterday when I left him with his diaper off (as I do every morning-to try and help him air out a little) and I came back to find a little surprise just for me!
So, those are some of Beckett’s new-s.
The other biggest news going on right now, are the mounds of babies being born all over the place.
Congratulations to Tyler and Juliana who had Baby Adalynn Elizabeth, and to Tyler and Allison who had Baby Adalyn Claudia. Also, our neighbors, Michael and Ashlee had Baby Emery last Friday and per Rachell’s request I have included pictures below. She had a c-section, but both baby and mommy are doing super. Emery is so tiny, it’s incredible. She’s awesome. I can’t wait to meet the other babies! Congrats to all of you.
In other news, we got a new bed, and it is fantastic. We are loving the ginormity of it. We got a
He continues to be a constant source of love and joy. He’s such a happy baby…always full of smiles and giggles. I constantly find myself laughing at him. What a little man. I love him. Here are some pictures of what I’m talking about. I ordered these bows from a friend who just started a business making them (you should all check it out, bowdazzledboutique.com) and wanted to see how they looked on a baby. I’m really not a mean mom, but Beckett’s the only baby I’ve got at the minute, so I tried them on him. Poor little man was mad at me for making him look like a girl. Sorry buddy.
Nathan is also doing well and is super stoked for the game this Saturday. It’s all he talks about at the moment. We’ll be attending in spirit as we watch it on a friends 42” plasma. Good times.
Anyway- as I started this off as I do with my journals...I’ll finish it in the same way.
“I’ll write again soon…”
