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.
