Even though Beckett is 8 weeks, I am just now getting around to posting his adorable newborn photos that were taken when he was almost 2 weeks. Take that as some sort of sign about how the whole having-a-newborn-and-toddler-while-building-a-house thing is working around here.
Beckett is actually a pretty good baby despite the lack of blog posts to suggest otherwise. He was incredibly chill for the first 3 weeks of his life. Then the next couple of weeks were rough. It’s not all him. It’s just hard to juggle Ramona and the build with the demands of a newborn sometimes.
Ramona adores Beckett. There are no jealousy issues. She is a little rough at times, but it’s only because she just really wants to love on him. It’s very sweet. She talks to him like he understands exactly what she’s saying. It melts my heart. He responds to her voice and acts slightly curious about whatever she does. It won’t be long until these 2 will be up to no good.
Apparently the Wills gene is strong because both of my babies look (or looked in Ramona’s case) exactly like their father. Good thing Nick is so hot! I forgot how much fun it is to see my husband with an infant. He has so much love for his children. Makes my heart explode.
My main focus these past 2 months has just been to soak up every moment. Nothing happens faster than a baby’s first year. I’m the world’s worst about documenting milestones and heck even taking pictures, but I am consumed with all the daily happenings. The snuggles, the spit ups, the coos, the blow outs, the smiles. Everything happens so fast. It’s important to take it all in despite whatever other things are demanding my attention.
I do make sure this girl gets lots of love and attention too. Although I’m convinced she’d rather have Beckett’s attention than mine. It has been a balancing act and a very difficult one at that especially when both kids are having meltdowns and I’m the only one home to deal with it. I’m not going to lie when that happens I sorta just want to have a meltdown with them.
These 3. I didn’t know you could love so much.
Kari Crowe took our photos. She was so sweet to let us use her house as the location since the dust and general construction of ours wouldn’t be such a great place for a newborn. Her house is adorable and in one of my favorite Ft Worth neighborhoods. Ramona had no nap and newborn sessions are long anyway. Recipe for disaster, but Kari was amazing. The photos are pretty darn incredible too.
Happy Monday loves!
