his post is probably going to be a bit random- per the usual lately.
Sunday Beckham and I went on a bit of a shopping spree. I am a self-proclaimed shopaholic....no apologies here. My hubby embraces and I am forever grateful. How did I get so lucky to 1) have such a supportive husband of my less than frugal ways, and 2) have a son that is seriously the best shopping buddy ever? Hmmm....blessed.
So, I have been dabbling with the idea of enrolling in grad school and I finally took a minute to talk to Butch about it and he was completely excited (with me). He said it was a great time to go ahead and get started and I should definitely get the ball rolling.... okay, fast forward about two-three days and I am sitting in front of my computer (the same computer that I got right before I started college in 2008) so yeah, it's a dinosaur. It literally took me 2838493 hours to enter grades, I was getting so aggravated. Then, as we were heading out the door Sunday, Butch says "get you a new computer babe." as men do, he then needed to justify why I needed a new computer (school work, grad school, etc.) which I'm fine with :). Awwww.... I was so excited!! I am the proud new owner of a Samsung 7 Ultrabook. I am obsessed. I love it so much and it has seriously motivated me to get going with all of the paperwork for grad school. So, yesterday I scheduled to take the GRE and enrolled in Northwestern. Yay! I'll update all of that later on.
Long story short- the whole point of telling about my new laptop was because I was transferring all of our 1,700 (literally) pictures from my old laptop to my new one and ran across some teeny tiny baby pictures of Beckham. I, naturally, bawled and squalled looking at how little he was. I realize he's only 15 months (tomorrow) and is still a baby, but he's really not. He rarely likes to snuggle anymore, he's just too busy. He is so smart, mobile, and growing up way too fast. As I was reminiscing at all of the adorable pictures, I had to go through this blog to see things I talked about back then. Here's a post from his two month check up and I also ran across this post from when he was six months old and already crawling, that seriously still blows my mind.
And here's a few of my favorites:
I'm obsessed with this picture because if you look at the clock in the background, Beckham was only 20 minutes old. I'm so glad we got this picture!
1 day old
2 days old
4 days old
In short, I am super excited about starting grad school, I'm sad my baby is not so much a baby anymore, and I am so thankful I was blessed with this beautiful life.
