Beckett //12 Months

Twelve Month Events// 
I can't believe we have a one year old. Everyone always told me that time flies when you have a baby but I never understood it until I lived it. It feels like I was pregnant like 3 months ago. This has been the most fun year of our lives and it is such a joy watching Beckett learn and grow!

12 month pictures have been the hardest by FAR. I started sweating about 2 minutes in and finally decided to just let her hold the sticker because that's all she wanted to do.

-played with Hank, Garret and Aiden

Beckett's Birth Story {one year later}

I originally wrote this post on 1/3/15 but decided to wait until close to her first birthday to post her birth story. I wanted to post this so that I can go back and re- live this day!

The most empowering, strongest, and best day of my life! 

My due date was 12.15.14 
We waited and waited and waited for Beckett's arrival and she decided she wanted to be fashionably late. We tried every old wives tale to induce labor: pineapple, walked 36 miles in a week, made eggplant parmesan...we did it ALL! 

We went to the Dr. on Dec. 15th and I was 75% effaced but 0cm dilated. I cried. We discussed an induction since I was showing no signs of dilation. I wanted Beckett to be here before Christmas and my Dr. didn't want me going past 41 weeks. 

We set the date for 12.19.14

The "plan" was to go in at midnight, get 2 doses of a medication to help me dilate, the Dr. would break my water, and start me on pitocin. But my HOPE was that after one dose of the medication to help me dilate that my body would go in to labor on it's own. 

Dale and I arrived at the hospital on 12.19 at 12:30am to check in. I was given 1 dose of medication at 1:30 am and tried to get some sleep. I was woken up at 5:55 am and woke Dale up. I said, "either I just peed or my water just broke." I pressed the call button for the nurse and she quickly came in. She checked me and I was 3 cm dilated and now having STRONG, consistent contractions that were 1:30-2:00 min apart. Thankfully I didn't have to have a 2nd dose of medication, didn't have to have them break my water, and didn't need pitocin. My body just needed a teeny kick start!

Dale was so amazing through my entire labor. Dale rubbed my back through each contraction, watched the monitor during my contractions and let me know when they were easing up, and helped me breathe. 

The nurse came in around 7:30am and told me that the CRNA was going in to 2 back to back c-sections and if I wanted an epidural then I needed it NOW. I declined. I wanted to push through and experience EVERY part of labor naturally....and boy I did! 

I continued to have strong contractions until about 9:00am and they kicked in FULL FORCE. I was literally yelling. I'm sure everyone on the L&D floor heard me yelling through each contraction. I called the nurse back in and said, "you have to check me now because I NEED to push." For some reason I was convinced that I would only be 5 cm or so and not be able to push yet.  She checked me and quickly made a call and said, "we have a delivery in room one ready to go!" My dr. wasn't even at the hospital, they had to call him over from the clinic. Luckily, I had amazing nurses and an amazing husband who coached me through the entire process. I continued to yell and finally a nurse said, "instead of yelling, just push" Praise the Lord! Pushing actually felt good, in a weird way! 

Our Doctor and Dale got pretty close through my entire pregnancy and since he knew Dale was in medical school and just completed an OBGYN rotation, he gave Dale a gown and gloves and said, "get ready to deliver your baby girl!"
Dale was holding my hand at the time and the nurse took his spot.

I only had to push for 10 min and Beckett made her debut at 9:42 am and her daddy delivered her which was the most proud moment of Dale's life! Not many kids can say that their daddy delivered them! The nurse handed me the scissors and let me cut her umbilical cord!

What special memories we have of 12.19.14! The Lord blessed us with our beautiful Beckett weighing in at 6 lbs 14 oz, 20 in. long!

I could go back and re-live this day 1,000 more times. We are so thankful for such a beautiful and healthy delivery!

This one goes at the top of my list: BECKETT IS OFFICIALLY A BOTTLE CHAMP!!!
12 hour road trip to Louisville and she was a saint!
Stayed in Louisville for a whole month. We've had so much fun!
Visited with Trent, Leighton, Garrett & Hank
Met her extended family!
Left for Florida to visit DADDY!!!

Beckett is so funny. When she around people that she knows and recognizes she's so talkative and smiley but when we are in a new environment around new people she is very stoic and takes it all in. She's a curious little one and I love to watch her study people and things!

Clothes & Diapers //
Size 2 Diaper -still don't see that changing any time soon although the straps no longer touch!
6 Month Clothes

This month we switched to Pampers Baby Dry for overnight diapers. Beckett was leaking out of her diapers every single night. So far the baby dry have been amazing. 

Health // 
I was able to start taking Beckett to my gym's child care when she turned 6 months and of course she caught her first cold. Nose Frieda FTW!!

Diet //
Tried peaches, nectarines, avocado, bananas, peas, green beans, sweet potatoes, zucchini, squash, pears, watermelon and so many more and LOVES them all!!!

Now that Beckett takes a bottle I think she prefers a bottle over me which is totally fine- I'm taking her lead on that one. I've been giving her a bottle before bed time now so I can see that she is getting a full belly before bed and it has been amazing! Every single night that we have done that she's not made  peep from 7:00 pm- 7:00 am!

Sleeps 7p-7a
Takes 2 1.5 hour naps and sometimes a 30 min cat nap in the evening

Beckett// 6 Months

Beckett // 6 Months
Weight// 14 lbs 4 oz
Height// 26.75 inches
I feel like her weight was wrong at the doctor. The nurse did it super fast. At home she is 15+ lbs on our scale but oh well! 

**I know these are long posts but I like to document so that I can go back and remember what Beckett was doing at each age!
Six Month Events // 
Ok. So far this is my favorite age! Beckett is developing a little personality, likes and dislikes, is able to stay awake a lot longer BUT she's not on the move yet and she's still my little baby!
I feel like I say this every month but Beckett has really changed SO much this past month. She is so curious and full of expression. A lot of people in the airport commented on how she has so many different expressions. Beckett became a lot more vocal this month too. She LOVES reaching and when she gets excited she kicks her legs and waves her arms like she is splashing in the water. Speaking of water, we took Beckett to the beach this month! We went with Dale's side of the family to Hilton Head! Beckett loved the ocean and she was so good the whole time! I will do an individual post with our beach pictures.
Clothes & Diapers //
Size 2 diapers (don't see that changing any time soon)
6 months 

Health //
Healthy girl!
Started teething this month so she's been super drooly and fussy in the evenings 

Diet //
Breast milk
We started a few solids when she was a couple days shy of her 6 month birthday. We are doing Baby Led Weaning and Beckett is so great at grabbing food and chewing it!
OH! And homegirl decided to start taking bottles this month!! We aren't planning to switch to bottles any time soon but it will give me break when I want or need it! 

Sleep //
oh gosh. where do I even begin?
My amazing sleeper changed at 5 months. Between leap #5 and teething her nighttime sleep has been all over the place. She still sleeps well- goes down at 7 and wakes up at 7 but she's been waking 1-2 times a night and that is not normal for her. When she wakes I nurse her and she goes right back to sleep but I'm really trying to not start that habit!
Takes 2-2 hour naps and sometimes 1 30 min cat nap in the evening.
Started sleeping on her belly.

Little Lady, 
Mommy and Daddy are SO in love with you. We are so blessed to call you ours and we are so excited to watch you grow!
