I cannot believe it! My little man it 1 year old today! Man, time has just flown by. I swear it was just the other day I found out I was pregnant. I swear it was just the other day I was doing my homemade gender test to find out I was having a boy. I swear it was just the other day I was chowing down on ice cream, mac & cheese, and BBQ sauce. I swear it was just that other day that I was jumping on the trampoline to induce labor.
My little guy is becoming such a big kid. This year we have experienced his first smile, first laugh, being able to sit on his own, being tall enough to finally use his jumper, tasting his first cereal, learning how to crawl, and so so much more!
Here are some of my favorite highlights of Beckham’s first year:
Beckham still doesn’t have any teeth and he is long and skinny. He talks a lot but nothing makes sense. I loves cheese, chicken, and bread. He loves to give hugs to every toy he has. When he is in the grocery cart he loves turning around and sitting on his knees. He enjoys walks with his mom and sister, Max. He will clap whenever he hears clapping or when someone says, “Yea!!!” He is happy most of the time…except for when he is tired or hungry. He wakes up about 8:00 and takes two naps during the day before going to bed at 8:30. He loves calling anyone on the phone. He loves the “Happy Happy Birthday To You” song that Chica’s sings on Sprout’s Sunny Side Up Show. He loves to drink from a straw, especially cold water. He is learning to be soft with Max. He loves reading books. He isn’t walking on his own yet, but loves walking with his push walker toy.
I love being a mom. I especially love being Beckham’s mom. My world has completely changed. I used to get my nails done and pamper myself often. I used to go clothes shopping and get new shoes frequently. I used to take a Sunday nap. I used to be able to sit down and enjoy a movie uninterrupted before 9:00 pm. I used to be able to use my phone without hiding it. Now, I function on a lot less sleep. Now, I sing Primary songs daily. Now, I watch Disney Jr. and Sprout instead of Good Things Utah and Ellen. Now, I know what it feels like to love someone so much that you can’t even put words to it. Now, I put someone else’s need before mine no matter the circumstance. Now, I am a mother to the most amazing little boy.
How lucky and blessed am I? The Lord sure knew what he was doing when he made my son’s sweet spirit. He truly is my little angel sent from Heaven. I don’t think I can thank my Father in Heaven enough. Adam and I just love our little guy so much. What a blessing it is to be able to be an eternal family.
Son, Mom and Dad love you very much!
Happy Birthday Mr. B!
