Beckham - 31 Weeks


Well this week has been eventful. Parker started running a fever in the middle of the night Friday and just more sick as the days went on. By Tuesday Beckham was running a fever and had a runny nose and cough. So by late afternoon we decided to head to the doctor with both kids. Parker ended up having a double ear infection and luckily Beckham's ear were fine. He is still sick but hopefully it is getting better not worse. He has been pretty fussy at times and still somewhat happy at others.

Likes: playing with Parker, musical toys, food

Dislikes: being sick

What's New in the Last Week: He got his first cold :(









Beckham - Seven Months


My handsome little boy is 7 months old!We are officially on the upswing to one year and I can't believe how fast it has gone. Except with my being home, I also feel like time is moving at a much slower pace and that is ok too!

Measurements: Two weeks ago Beckham weighed 18 pounds 6 ounces. I am pretty sure he has gained several more ounces so he is probably somewhere between 18 and a half and 19 pounds.  His 6-9 month clothes still fit good but most of his fleece sleepers are starting to get tight in the booty! It can be really hard to button or zip right around his diaper especially in the middle of the night in the dark. This little boy has a serious booty!

Here is how tall he is...hehehe.

Milestones: Not much has changed in a while. He loves to sit! If you lay him down he is perfectly content to just stay there; forget about rolling over either way unless there is something really worth trying to get. And if he doesn't get it in one or two tries, he says 'nope!' He has started to lean over when sitting, so I am hoping that is a movement towards crawling! I know I'm asking for trouble, but I'm excited for him to start crawling!

It has taken every bit of a month for him to start getting into eating solid foods but he is finally there! He gets excited for most foods and anytime you're eating, he thinks he's entitled to a nibble! He really seems to enjoy pretty much everything I have given him. Parker loves to help try and feed him too. Although it can be hard because he loves to grab the spoon right out of your hand!

He also loves to dance while he's sitting:



Schedule: He still has a predictable routine and it hasn't changed much since 3 months old. Most of the time he still likes to take 4 naps but he is starting to take longer naps FINALLY! Hallelujah! I thought I was destined to have 2 children who only like 30 minute naps. And seriously, what can you get done in 30 minutes? That's right, nothing. But finally Beckham is napping 45 minutes to sometimes an hour or hour and a half. He has even had several 2 hour naps! So some days he naps 3 times. Now that I feed him solid foods he doesn't always get so sleepy or cranky in the evenings though he has been known to have evening grouchiness. 

I am still waiting ever so patiently for him to sleep mostly through the night. I'm not even asking for all night - just for him to wake just once. But alas, he still wakes around 10pm, 1 or 2am, and 4 or 5am. Someday. Until then, I'll be glad I am not working!


Such a cute and happy boy!

Beckham - 30 Weeks


Beckham is 30 weeks old! In just a couple days I'll be back saying he is 7 months old! Time seems to move pretty slowly during the days and weeks but now that he is almost 7 months old, I can't believe how fast time has gone! 

I'm not going to do my normal update since I updated just the other day. Although I didn't mention that he was almost 18 and a half pounds! This little chunky monkey is just a little meatball! His chubby knees and creases are too cute!





Beckham: Weeks 26-29




Well dang...I got behind! I blame the holidays and the fact that we had my family staying at our house for almost three weeks. So it was pretty busy around here. I did manage to take pictures though so that's a win.

Likes: Parker, yogurt bites, Ritz crackers, watermelon, squeaky and musical toys, any of Parker's toys, being pushed in the walker by Parker, mommy, daddy's beard

Dislikes: being fed with a spoon, cold food, the evening

What's New in the Last Month: Not a lot has changed! We did start feeding him solids and like Parker is slow to like it. He is generally a very happy baby but he can be so cranky in the evenings! It's like all he wants to do is sleep! He loves sitting up but could kind of care less about moving around although he is starting to reach forward which hopefully leads to crawling! 


































Beckham - 24 & 25 Weeks



I am not keeping up here lately! I guess that's life with 2 kids! I at least remember to take his picture every Monday (or sometimes Tuesday).

Likes: babbling all sorts of new sounds, watching and laughing at Parker all day, peekaboo

Dislikes: staying up too late (for naps or bedtime)

What's New in the Last (few) Weeks: Ever since we got back from California his sleeping has been terrible; only sleeping for 2-3 hours at a time. Well in the last week, we decided to just get him back to sleep instead of feeding him because he wasn't waking to eat. I think he was just waking between sleep cycles. He would always fall asleep eating. I think that has helped because he is learning to fall back asleep. Two nights ago he slept from 7:30 until 4 am! Last night he only woke at 1:30. I think we are pulling out of the terrible 4-5 month range!
