Here are a couple pics of Beckham at the hospital right after he was born, he already has changed so much. He has been so much fun and he is such a good baby, we feel so blessed for this new addition to our family.

This is Beckham with his little cousin that is only 6 weeks older then him, they are going to be best buds. Me and my sis are so excited to raise these two together.

This is Beckham at three weeks old, hasn't he changed a ton? He is chunking up so fast.

WeLcOmE bAbY bEcKhAm...

So here is my birth story of baby Beckham (this is mostly for my personal record but I would love to share it will you all). Sorry I have no pics yet, I don't have the right software to download them onto Cade's laptop and our computer is still in the shop so I will post them as soon as we get it back.

Beckham was born on Feb. 6th at 8:58 a.m. He weighed 7lbs. 9oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long. It all started on Thursday the 5th when I went to my doc. I had gone in on that monday and she told me I was a 4+ and if I didn't go on my own before Thursday that I could come in in the morning and she would check me again and if I was a 5 by then they would admit me to the hospital and get me going. She also said if I wasn't a 5 she would mess with my cerivix and see if she could get me to a 5 so either way she made it sound pretty optimistic that I would have him on that thursday. I went in on thurs morning and I was still only a 4+ and she couldn't get me to stay at a 5 on my own so she sent me home. I was so dissapointed, even though I was scheduled to be induced a week later I was anticipating him coming that day so it was a big let down. Plus another week at that point in your pregnancy feels like forever. My doctor told me to go home and pump and that could help me go into labor on my own. I wasn't going to do it but as the day went on I got desperate and decided to give it a try. Well, it worked. I started contracting right away and they never stopped after that. At about 2:30 in the morning I got out of bed and started timing my contractions and they started getting about 3-4 minutes apart and they were strong. I checked into the hospital at about 4:45 and had him here by 8:58. It all happened so fast that it was hard to take it all in. He is so perfect and I am so relieved that everything went so smoothly. I feel so blessed to have him here safely and with no complications. He is so much fun and I can't get enough of him. Mais is getting more used to having him around. She has adjusted fairly well, you can tell it has been hard on her but she is starting to want to hold him and kiss him so I think she is doing better. We are all adjusting well and loving this new little bundle of joy. I will post pics later. Sorry it was so long but I wanted good record of it for my own sake.

So Sorry...

that I haven't updated my blog in forever. We have had a bunch of computer problems so I haven't been blogging at all for like 2 months. I will have to put my Christmas pics on but I need my computer fixed first so for now I will just post a quick update. We have been so busy finishing our basement before this baby comes that we really haven't been doing much else. It is finally pretty much done (we got carpet last week) and we are loving it and so relieved that we are done with all the hard work. So now we are working on getting the babies room ready and transitioning Mais to her big girl bed, which has been quite the challenge. She seems to like playing more than sleeping, imagine that! She is very proud of her bed and big girl pillow though.

As far as the pregnancy goes, it is coming close to the end. At 35 weeks I was almost dialated to a 2 and 50% thinned and now I am just a couple days past 37 weeks and as of last thursday I was a 3+. My doc says I could go any time but I am scheduled to be induced on the 12th if I don't go on my own before then. We are getting excited to meet this little guy. We have finally agreed on a name... Beckham. So that was a huge relief, since we had a very hard time agreeing. I will post some pics and updated of Christmas when we get our computer back and I will do better at keeping everyone updated.
