He's getting TOO big!!
Well, we are 26 days and counting until Beckham's first birthday. Can you believe it!?!?!?!? I can hardly believe my sweet baby boy is going to be 1 year old! The year has gone by WAY too fast! Everyone told me it would, but you really can't understand it until you are in the middle of it.
So currently, Beckham is standing a few seconds on his own, and each time gets longer and longer. He will take a couple of steps on his own with our encouragement, but he still thinks crawling is way faster. Which is totally ok with me. He's mobile enough on his knees! I am pretty sure he's about to cut a whole slew of teeth. He hasn't had any since he was 7 months old, so it wouldn't surprise me. Plus he's drooling all the time! We haven't weighed him lately, but at last check he was 20 lbs. But he was 20 lbs at his 9 month ck up too. He's getting taller too. He can reach so many things he couldn't just a couple of weeks ago. He jibber jabbers all the time and will say "ba ba" for ball, book and Buddy. And he says MAMA all the time! I love it! He throws a DADA in there too every now and then.
We are SO looking forward to Christmas. We know he has no idea of who Santa is, or what a gift is, but we can't wait to see him play with all the wrapping paper and bows rather than the toys Santa brought him. Someone said the other day that they were planning on getting their child a bunch of bags with tissue paper because they knew they would like it better than the actual gifts. It kinda sounds like a good idea, huh?
Well, here are a few new pics. As you can see, he sticks his tongue out alot these days too.
