How time flies

Four weeks ago from right now I was sitting on our couch with all sorts of things running threw my mind. I was so anxious to get to the hospital and have our little boy. I couldn't bring myself to go to sleep and I couldn't stop thinking I was going to forget something or I wasn't going to hear the phone ring when the hospital called to have us come over. Needless to say it was a very long night.

Our little boy is our world now and I can not believe he is going to be a four weeks tomorrow. He has gotten so big and is getting to be quite the little stinker. We love him so much. I have loved every minute of having him in our lives. It has to be the best thing to wake up to and to fall asleep knowing he is just a few feet away.

In this last four weeks we have had so much go on. Things didn't exactly turn out how I thought they would have. A week after I had Beckham I started having kidney pain all over again and it was worse than it had ever been. I went and had a CT scan and sure enough my kidneys were full of stones, again and in the left kidney I had a 8 mm. I haven't had one that big since I first found out I had them. When a stone is that big you only have a 20% chance of passing it on your own, so they had to get me into surgery. Exactly 3 weeks (1 week ago) I had to have lithotripsy on my left kidney for the 4th time. It was successful and they were able to get the stone. I still have smaller stones to pass, but they are all passable at the moment. Which is awesome news.

Now that I have gotten rid of my pain I have been able to go back to work and take care of Beckham on my own. I hadn't been able to take care of him without help since I had him because I was in so much pain. It has been the best feeling to know that I am able to take care of him and not need help.

Britt has been the best threw this last month and has helped me so much. I am so grateful him and love him so very much. Beckham has brought Britt and I so much closer (ever though we were pretty close before). I didn't think it was possible to love him anymore than I already did, but I do and he is my world. I am the luckiest girl on the world. He was my rock threw it all and I can never tell him thank you enough.

Also in this four weeks it has became more clear to us who our true friends are and who truly cares about our little family. There are some of our friends that have shocked us and acted liked they cared threw the pregnancy and now that he is here have not given us the time of day or even the courtesy to call or see us. Its more me than Britt that has seen this change in my friends. It is crazy how much things change in such a small amount of time. But for those friends that have called and have came to see us we are thankful to have you in our lives and love you dearly. You guys are awesome and we are so proud to call you our friends.

Last week we were finally able to get Beckhams newborn pictures done. James did an awesome job. We got to look at them today and we now get to pick the ones we want edited. I can't wait to get them to show everyone my cute little man. I think he is the cutest thing on the planet, but then again I am his mom and I am always going to say that. Here are a few pictures I took on him today that I think are absolutely adorable.

Happy Birthday Grandma Elma.

This last week was Britt's Grandma Elma's birthday. On her birthday I had to go in and have surgery for my kidney stone's again so we were unable to celebrate with her that day.

I have only known Elma for a short period of time, but from what I have seen and heard about, and been around her she is an amazing woman. I have learned so much from her. I am so glad she is in our lives and is here for Beckham's little life.

She is an amazing grandmother. She is the cutest little lady I have ever seen. We love you very much Grandma Elma.

This year for Valentines we decided to keep it simple since we just had our little boy. Britt got me the most beautiful flowers. I absolutely love them. They are amazing. I love Britt so very much. He is my world and I couldnt ask for a better husband. He takes such great care of Beckham and I. I love him more than I could ever express. He is so willing to do things for me and he does a wonderful job at taking care of me. If it wasnt for him I dont know if I could be the person I am today. He has made me such a better person. Britt is my very best friend. I never thought I could love so one as much as I love my Britt and then we had Beckham and I love him so much more than I could have ever imagined. I have a wonderful life and I can not complain about a single thing. I love my boys more then anything. I always have and always will. I love you Britt and Beckham!

Weekend with Jordy

This weekend we were lucky to have Jordy stay with us while my parents went to St. George with Lyndsey. We love it when Jordy is here with us. She is so cute and alot of help. Usually when we have Jordy we take her to do something and try to entertain her but this weekend we couldnt because the baby is still to new to take out.

I love having Jordy here. She is one of the things I miss most about living at home. She is the cutest thing ever. I am so glad she has taken to Britt so well and she loves going with him. While Jordy was here Britt was able to play his favorite board games, Pay Day and Battleship. Jordy and him played for hours. We love you Jordy.

Beckhams Blog

I have decided that it might be easier to do the day by day picture on Beckham's own blog, and use this one for our family updates.

Day 6. He is such a good baby. He sleeps so good at night. We put him to bed at 10 and he sleeps til 4 and we feed him and he goes right back to sleep and sleeps til 7. I couldnt ask for a better baby.

Day 7. He is changing so much everyday and I am loving every minute being a mom.
