So there's this boy...

And he has completely captivated my heart....
Our days have been filled with visits to the hospital and thankfully now to their home as Beckham came home on Monday.  He is hungry, happy and oh so darling
A few images from the last few days...
This one captures the deep love I have for  my daughter in law!

Papou & Beckhams hands
Proud Uncle Chad

Travis and Ashlyn are true parents at heart. They seem to be adjusting beautifully and adore their little guy . One of my favorite pics was of Travis holding Beckham. The second they unplugged all his tubes Travis took off his shirt and cuddled close skin to skin. Thankfully Ashlyns friend captured the sweet moment with her camera. I also love the one of Beckham staring straight into his mommas eyes. Ashlyn amazes me with her calm, patient demeanor realizing it will all just get easier. I was such a frantic first time mom and admire their calm so much.
These days are the sweetest and I am loving every text, picture, poop update and moment holding and helping in any way possible
I cherish my new role as YaYa  and Papou is quite smitten too!

Yay!!! I am so glad they are home. It does get easier but it really helps when the parents are calm and do full of love!! What a darling boy he is. I have a feeling this little blog is about to take on a whole new meaning

Darling pictures of little Beckham and his parents. I'm so happy that everyone is together at home and loving every minute of their new life. Yes, "calm" is important, something I don't have much experience with but have always admired from afar. I'm usually a wreck for the first couple of months with each new grandchild and it hasn't gotten any better and we're on NUMBER TWELVE!! I worry about their eyes and can they hear and what about that birthmark or red mark and what their FEET look like...and it goes on and on. When Ryker was in the NICU for 11 days, I was surprisingly calm, the Lord blessed me, because normally I'm pretty frantic about each one of them...will Morgan make the cheer squad?...will Garrett be drafted on the team he wants?...will Gavin hit each note at his piano recital?...will Grant make his first basket during the game on Saturday?...will Allie get the part she's trying out for in the school play?..SEE WHAT I MEAN??? It never ends...and now you're just beginning...WHAT FUN!!

Karen, these pictures give me such warm fuzzies!! That little guy couldn't be any cuter! Congrats to you and Papou! And of course the proud parents and Uncle Chad too! :)

Sorry Karen about the word verification, I didn't realize it was still on my blog. I hate it too and I'll have Kami help me remove it when she gets home from AZ. Thanks for telling me about it.

My grandchildren call me Nana (you know, my name is Nancy), except for Brayden who has lately been calling me Nancy because Nana sounds kinda funny coming from a 17 year old. I didn't really think about that when he was born.
