Houston, we have a walker!!

Look out world....Beckham Brooks is officially a walker! Tonight he had his first steps and I'm so happy Brian and I were both there to see it! This video is about 2o minutes after his first step's, it's amazing how much he improved in a short amount of time. We are so proud of you, Beckham Brooks! Love you!!!

This post is for GT!

Ok, I know that I've been slacking on the blog front. We've been so busy lately!! So this post is for my father in law, GT! (No more giving me a hard time about not blogging!! :) )

Beckham has changed so much in the last two months! He's so close to walking.. Brian thinks it will happen this weekend, but time will tell. All Beck wants to do is hold is hands and walk around. I think he would've already been walking by now, but unfortunately, we had a little bump in the road. Beck broke his arm and had to be put in a cast. It was so sad and cute all at the same time. It was the littlest cast I've ever seen!

Beckham also has a new obsession... Yo Gabba Gabba. I swear he could hear the beginning of the show in the other room and crawls as fast as his little body can carry him to get to Yo Gabba Gabba! It is so cute! He loves to dance to the songs and has the biggest smile on his face the entire time.. I love it!
His Auntie Ann was here last weekend and brought him this lion pillow, and oh boy, that is his FAVORITE thing right now. He will lay on his pillow with his night night and drink his bottle. Where did my baby go? He doesn't even need me to give him a bottle anymore.. so sad! :( This little boy has become so independent in the last few months, it's crazy. Beckham is so smart, sometimes too smart where mommy can't get away with hiding things. haha!

I am so proud of Beck over the last few months! I can't believe his 1st birthday is less than a month away, where does the time go!?! He seems to change and grow everyday. I love watching his little brain work and figure things out. I never knew a love like this existed. I love you, Beckham Brooks!

9 months!

My Beckham,

You are 9 months old! I cannot believe that your turning 1 in 3 months... How is that possible?! You've all the sudden blossomed into a little boy. You are eating pretty much anything these days, which is a lot more fun than just formula and puree baby food. Your favorite thing so far is grilled cheese and bananas! I believe that is your favorite meal at the moment. We love to see your reaction on your face when you try something new, it's adorable.

Another milestone this month is all your movement!! You are literally crawling everyone, pulling yourself up on everything and pushing a wagon while walking behind it. I'm afraid you are going to be walking so soon! VV told us that your daddy started walking at 10 months... and you are exactly like your dada so far. Your favorite spot is on your daddy's shoulders. You could sit there forever, it's so cute!

It's been so fun to watch your little brain grow along with your curiosity. Your also getting braver with each day. Trying something new or achieving something you tried the day before. Your dad and I are incredible proud for you. The love we have for you is indescribable! We always talk about what we were doing before you came into our lives and your dada said, "I dunno, but it was pointless until Beck was here!" Which I totally agree. You are so special!!

I love you boogie! Can't wait to see what you do next month....

A Little Boy's Best Friend

I've heard of a man's best friend, but I've never heard of a little boy's best friend. Tatum and Beck are literally best buds. They follow each other around the house, it's so adorable. Wherever Tatum is, that's where Beckham wants to be and vise versa. I've never seen such a funny, cute relationship before between a baby and a dog.

We've taught Beckham to "pat" Tatum and he will do that forever, if Tatum will sit still long enough. Tatum also loves to lick Beck, and of course, Beckham just thinks it's the funniest thing. I can't wait till Beckham is running around and they can play together outside in the yard. I believe it's a beginning to a great friendship.

Here is a video of Beck and Tatum playing in the laundry basket. Makes me laugh everytime...

Walking Warning

I'm afraid Beck is going to be walking on his own in no time. Today we pulled out this wagon just to see how he would do, but we had no idea that he could push this and walk all by himself. I can't get over how much he's changing this month! He is so fun right now!!

VV got Beck this toy car for Easter and oh boy, does he love it!! He already figured out how to make it go just by watching Brian and I. I know I'm bias, but my baby boy seems to be quite the smarty pants. :)

Beckham's Mama

I had no idea what to except joining the elite club called Motherhood. I thought I had a pretty good idea being around my sister in law, Katie and my nephew Cooper. However, that was just bits and pieces. Being a mother is truly everything I dreamed it would be and more. Motherhood is so rewarding, but oh boy, it will test you at the same time. All the sleepless nights, smelling like spit-up, the colic spell, the blow-out diapers, early wake up calls, etc make it all worth it because every morning I get to see Becks, my son, smile at me. I seem to catch myself in awe of him on a daily basis. Whether it's Beckham crawling, playing with toys, eating food, sleeping, it doesn't seem to matter, I am truly fascinated by him. To think that he became this little boy inside my belly is the most amazing thing. All the little features of Beckham from his blonde locks all the way down to his cute little toes, were created by Brian and I, how remarkable. I am so blessed to have Becks as my son. I love you, Beckham Brooks.

This little face melts my heart and reminds me how lucky I am.....
