Beckham is ONE!!

Oh my goodness.  This boy.

He has been the greatest, sweetest, most fun blessing in our life since day one.  When I think of one word that describes him, it is good (or great) in every meaning of the word.  He has been such a good baby, such an easy temperament, so happy and lovable and independent in just the right ways.  He's a little bit of a mama's boy and I will be the first to admit that I love every bit of it.  Josh and I always are commenting on how Becks is just happy to be here and happy to be a part of things.  He strong and determined (almost to a fault).  Diaper changes are near impossible and he hates getting dressed.  He is the happiest boy (did I already say that?).  He has the biggest, happiest smile and a contagious giggle.  He started laughing early and hasn't stopped since.  

At his one year appointment:
22 pounds even (38%)
30 inches (58 %)
46.6 cm head (57 %)

Becks never quite got the chub that Maddie did at this age and has proven to be almost completely opposite from her in almost every way (one of then few similarities they share is their love for white swaddle blankets and sucking their thumbs).

He just started walking and is already cruising around and trying to run (4/4/2014)
He can saw a handful of words - mama, dada, bottle, hi, bye, jesus, hey, balloon, whoa!, and his personal favorite - BALL which he says from the minute he wakes up until just before bedtime (Josh is so proud).
He is always on the move. Always.  He climbs on anything that is climb-able and is constantly trying his best to get hurt or do something dangerous (again, totally opposite from his sis).
He gives the sweetest hugs and kisses, but only if he really wants to
He loves water - showers, baths, swimming, putting his hands in the sink etc.
He is obsessed with his sister and follows her around all day
He is also obsessed with balls and can spot them from what seems like a mile away and won't rest until he gets it
His favorite foods are: any kind of berries, PB (and now honey) sandwiches, any kind of pasta, fruit leather, and milk.
He has 5 teeth
He loves people and waves to everyone he sees when he's in his stroller
He loves being outside, jumping on the tramp, swings, eating stuff he shouldn't and pulling everything out of any and every cupboard and drawer - especially in the bathroom

We love this boy!
