Keely Kate is here!

On December 2, 2014, Keely Kate Weems entered the world at 9:45am weighing 6 pounds even, and 19 3/4 inches long. She is beautiful and perfect!!

So, I'm sure I mentioned it but my best friend, Amber was pregnant and through a bit of a crazy pregnancy she had Keely last Tuesday. I can't even believe she's finally here. It's like we talked about her for so long...wondering what she would look like etc. and now she's here! eeeek!! We thought she was going to come early because Amber went into early labor around 29 weeks but after a week in the hospital and medicine, she ended up having to be induced!

Keely says hi!

Ahh! I'm seriously so obsessed with her. She is so precious! I was able to take off on Tuesday so I was at the hospital all day. Then, Wednesday I had a workshop in Shreveport so I was able to stop by the hospital before going home to see them. Then last Friday, I took Beckham to meet Keely for the first time. He was so sweet and gentle with her. He has some crazy obsession with baby heads so he kept trying to touch her head, but for the most part he was being really easy. I kept reminding him that she was only 3 days old and he had to be very careful. He was so sweet with her though. On the way there we were singing Happy Birthday to Keely and he kept saying he was going to be real careful, and he wanted to kiss her, and hug her... So cute! Then, at one point I was holding her and he said "hold me too, Mama, with Keely." I thought, uhhhohh someone is a bit jealous. But, I think he will get used to it. They are practically destined to be bffs. lol

And today she is already one week old. The time will surely fly by even faster now than before. :)

Chuck E Cheese again... and our tree!

Chuck E Cheese is quickly becoming Beckham's favorite place in the world. He has only been a handful of times but he talks about it all the time. After our Chuck E Cheese trip with Dad, Monica and Marc he was dying to go back, talking about "riding the big red dog" aka Clifford. So, Yaya came in for the weekend and we both had some errands to run in Bossier, and decided to have lunch and some play time at Chuck E Cheese....on a Saturday. It was brave, no doubt; but, it turned out fine. It was crazy busy with about 7 birthday parties happening but it was still a ton of fun. Beckham was so exhausted afterwards and we still had a few stops to make, but it ended up working out.

Over Thanksgiving break we met up with my Dad, whom Beckham calls Pepaw and had lunch and got our Christmas tree! We actually got a real tree this year which I LOVE, but it's a lot of work. I love that my Dad is really trying to be involved in Beckham's life. He usually comes over every other week or so and then he'll randomly text or call for us to go eat with him or come to his house. It's really sweet and I am very thankful for him in our lives. This is the big wheel that Pepaw got last Christmas for Beckham. He was too small for it then, but he's the perfect size now. He hasn't really mastered the whole pedaling thing yet but I'm sure it won't take him long to get it figured out.

Beckham also has a crazy obsession with TC, Pepaw's dog. I think he loved her as much as he loves Dad. haha She is seriously the sweetest dog ever. She lets him hug her, kiss her, attempt to pick her up...etc. She doesn't care one bit and Beckham loves her so much.

I will post pictures of our tree later, but it is massive. Like, too big for our living room. I didn't realize it was as large and in charge as it is, but it is really pretty. I made the joke that everyone was getting gift cards this year, because we literally don't have room for presents. I guess we'll have to make it work because we are somewhat stuck with it until after Christmas.

August, September, October, oh my!

Where oh where has the time gone? I'm not even going to try to recap the past five months. I guess I'm just going to pick up at an event in our lives and go from there. So, here it goes.


A few weeks before Halloween I took a day off to take Beckham to the doctor to get our flu shots. Yes, I get my shot at the pediatricians office..ha! It's just easier. Anyways, I took the day off and we got to the doctor around 10:00. Then, we went to Spirit costume store because I really wanted Beckham to pick out his own costume this year. The weather was a little rainy but nothing too bad. However, while we were shopping in Spirit, the lights went out. It was a little scary at first because there was a lot of very scary Halloween decorations and the whole thing was a bit eerie. I was afraid Beckham would be scared, but of course he wasn't. He was actually touching the fake amputated arms and legs saying, "they got bobos." lol The lights eventually came back on and he ended up picking out a Jake costume from Jake and the Neverland Pirates show on Disney Junior. I did not help him at all. He did it completely on his own, which I was very proud of. We later found out that his cousin Jake was also being Jake for Halloween. Ohh well...both looked stinking precious!

After Spirit, we met my Dad, Monica and my brother, Marc at Chuck E. Cheese. We were thinking that since it was a weekday it wouldn't be really busy, but it was surprisingly packed. A few times, we even said "I can't believe there are this many kids that are home-schooled." Ha, little did we know that most schools in Caddo and Bossier Parish had also lost electricity around the same time that Spirit did and they ended up letting kids go home. Of course, the day I take off, they end up letting school out early.

Okay so long story short. Beckham ended up taking a late nap the actual day of Halloween so we didn't even get to go trick or treating. He woke up around 7:00 and Butch had built a fire in the backyard. He said "I woke up just in time to cook my wienie roast." :D Thank goodness we went to Trunk or Treat at Maymay's church the day before because otherwise, he wouldn't have even worn his costume at all. He had such a blast playing all the games and being with the other kids. Here are a few photos from the fun!

Jake wasn't having a good night.
