7 year Anniversary!!

Steve and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary! 7 years?!! I can't believe that it's already been that long. In a good way of course.  It's gone by so fast.
How extremely grateful I am for Steve.  He's my best friend and forever companion.  We've had an amazing journey so far together, and I'm glad that he's by my side in everything.

This anniversary seemed extra special this year.  I think because that this year our prayers were answered and we are blessed to be having our little Beckham.  Every year prior, we would always talk about and  wonder what year our family was going to grow. During our dinner we talked about how we are going to be parents.  How this year would be our last official anniversary just the two of us.  It made me a little emotional.  Our chapter in life of just the two of us is ending and a new one is opening-parenting and raising a little one!! It still feels like a dream.

Steve and I celebrated at home, he woke me up with the cutest hand made card.  The words that he wrote were beautiful. Still makes me tear up just thinking about it.
 I surprised Steve with a Batman date night (with the help of my sister, coming and hanging the bats for me.) We had candle light dinner with pizza and bread sticks and than had a Batman movie marathon! Steve was in heaven.  He LOVES Batman movies.

Happy Anniversary babe!! Can't wait for what else life brings!

My Life.

Oh my goodness how I miss the days I could actually get ready for the day.  Get up off this couch and move my legs.  Seriously people. Bed rest has it's ups and downs.  I am so beyond grateful for my little Beckham and that he continues to grow. I realize and I know what a miracle it is to be pregnant. But bed rest is a challenge.  I can feel  my body getting weaker, it's not a fun feeling.  But I know if I just have faith in God I can get through this.  Plus, I would do anything for our little man.  He means the world to both of us, and this is just a short period in our life.

Steve is such an amazing husband.  He does everything.  Laundry, cooking and wakes up extra early to make me a good and healthy breakfast.  How blessed I am to have him for a husband and help me get through this.  Its been a challenge not being able to do anything, and watching him carry the load of everything.

I went to the doctor Thursday and we got to see our lil guy again.  We saw his little feet kicking, and now I know what's hitting me in the ribs every day. haha! He's a little busy body! I love feeling him move.  He's still measuring a week and 4 days a head of schedule. Which makes me happy.
Doctor told me that we could have him possibly at 33-34 weeks..which would be NEXT MONTH.  When he told me that, it made me feel a little worried.  Just because That is still pretty early, and I want him to be healthy.  Doctor also said that every day I can keep him in is a gift.  Since he's  getting bigger and heavier, he's always right on that stitch. And there isn't much there....

The doctor gave me two steroid shots, one on Thursday and one on Friday. It's to help Beckham's lungs develop quicker, in case he does come early.  The things I'm doing for our little man! Steroid shots are no fun.

Life is going good though. I have sooo many visitors every day, and it makes me happy.  So many family and friends have gone above and beyond for us.  Steve and I are very grateful.  I seriously know how it feels now, for elderly people. When they are at home day after day.  A visitor makes a world of difference.  If you have a grandparent or an elderly neighbor go visit them!! Once I'm off of bed rest and back in the swing of things, I'm going to make a huge effort to go visit those in need.

Something really sweet, my nephew who is now 5 said the cutest things to me.  I wanted to write them down so I don't forget.
 My dad had Carson and they both came over to visit with me, well my dad couldn't stay long and so he told Carson they had to go.  Cars looks at me and says "Keira Ill get what you need. I know how to climb counters."  So he stayed with me a while longer, while my dad ran an errand.  The entire time he was here he kept asking if I was okay and if I needed something.  He melts my heart.  Oh how I love him.
Another time he came to visit he wanted to go outside.  I reminded him I couldn't leave the couch.  He held out his hand to me and told me, he could hold my hand if I needed help on the steps. (I have steps outside my door.) Carson is the biggest sweet heart. Makes me so excited to have Beckham, and have my own little man with me all the time.
