Sweet story

Yesterday we were able to get together with my family for my birthday dinner. When we all get together, we make a pretty big, pretty loud bunch, so we try to gather in places that can deal with those 2 things. This year that meant LOVERS PIZZA in Dallas. It's a really great little Italian restaraunt that's usually yummy and not too expensive. I highly recommend it.

Anyway, onto the sweet story. My niece, Cameryn, is 6 , and she has grown up to be a sweet, precious little girl. She's very tender hearted, and tends to be like a little mother to other kids around her. SO, in my birthday card, my sis-n-law told me to pay attention especially to what Cameryn wrote. She had no idea that I am pregnant, and in the card she wrote "I wish you would want another baby." I think she meant that she wishes I would have another baby. So after reading it, I pulled her over to me and asked what she meant by what she wrote in my card. She said "I want you to have another baby." So I told her her wish came true, that I am going to have another baby. I wish I had a camera on her face when I said that! Her little mouth dropped open and she threw her arms around me and gave me the BEST Cameryn hug EVER!! It made me cry. I don't know if my brother and sis-n-law had told her about the miscarriages or not, but somehow she knew something. Her excitement was so genuine, the kind only a child can have. It was just so sweet and precious. I won't soon forget it.

Thank you sweet Cameryn for you tender little heart. I pray THE LORD continues to bless you with that gift, and uses you to touch people the way you touched me on my birthday. I love you, sweet girl!!

More fun Pictures

Here are a few more photos of Beckham.

He loves to put his feet in our shoes these days. It's pretty funny to watch him try to walk in them.
I love this shirt too, Josh got it for him. It says "I watch ESPN with my Mommy."

Daddy and Beckham at the SUPERHERO party.

Fun at PUMP IT UP!

He's is screaming with excitement after going down the slide by himself...
well Josh may have given him a little "nugde" down the slide.

What have we been up to??

Well, it's been a busy few weeks. First, Henry Mullins dropped by to play for a while. He and Beckham had so much fun. It was so cute to see the 2 little guys playing. Henry isn't as mobile as Beckham yet, but Beckham made sure he always had a good toy to play with.

Here are the boys playing with their "cars."
Then my nephew Cannon turned 5 and had a SUPERHERO birthday party. Josh found Beckham some BATMAN pj's, and we figured they made a great little costume.
Beckham as BATMAN! Scary, huh?

Daddy and BATMAN!
And finally, we went to Makayla and Brynley Pitts' birthday party at PUMP IT UP! Beckham had a great time. He bounced and slid down the slide, ate a little pizza, and slept VERY well that night!

That is pretty much it. Beckham had his 18 month check up, and he's doing great. The only thing they are concerned about is he's a little too thin. He's not gaining enough weight in the right amount of time. SO we have him on the "anything he wants to eat diet." If he wants animal crackers for breakfast, he gets them! We have to take him in for a weight check in 4 weeks and if he hasn't gained anything, then they are going to test him for CELIAC disease. I don't really think he has celiac, but if the Dr says do it, we do it.

Well, that pretty much catches us up. Oh...and I am pregnant!!
