Beck's Arrival...almost 3 weeks Old now!!!

Well...Beck is now almost 3 weeks old and so precious. My mom left to go home today...so sad. Here are some pictures from the day he arrived up until now. The pic above is of me and Nick waiting to go into the operation room for the c-section.
My sweet friend Rachel came that night to take some pictures. They turned out so precious!!! Thanks Rachel!
Everyone peeking @ Beck for the first time.
Reese was so precious the first time she saw him. It was an awesome moment.
What a blessing.

Gigi and baby
Reese and her "heartbeat". That is what she calls it. Precious.
She was checking out little brother.
Handsome daddy and handsome son...what more can a girl want?
I am in love with both of them!!!
Bobo (my dad) holding his newest grandson...my parents and sister and brother all came to visit for Thanksgiving to meet Beck. Thanks everyone for coming!!!
The 1st day he came home Reese insisted he lay down with her in her bed while we put her to sleep. I am just glad he has survived thus far with all of Reese's "hands on" activity with "brother".
What Reese has been doing in her spare time...

Mimi had to leave today. She has been gone over 2 months from home. She first went to spend about a month and half with Olivia my sister who just had twin boys. Then...she flew directly here to be with me for 3 weeks. Dad and Abby are ready to have her home!!! Thanks mom...you are the best. We miss you.

Beckham Grant Has Arrived!

UPDATE (Friday Morning):
Check out Rachel's blog to see new pictures she she took of Beckham by clicking HERE. I talked to Meredith this morning and her and baby are still doing great.

Beckham Grant Floyd was born today and everyone is doing great! This is Meredith's SIL, Kate, updating her blog. I'm sure she'll add more pictures soon. But she asked that I add a few pictures tonight. Beckham was born around 12:30 pm and was 8 pounds 7 ounces. He is adorable and just perfect!

Reese's Fractured Elbow/Cowboys Game!!!!

Last Saturday night Reese took an unplanned for "extra bounce" right off of our bed onto the carpet. She cried, we waited to see if it was just the normal cry or if something was really wrong. Sadly, it was the latter of the two. I ended up sleeping with her that night b/c she wanted me to "hold her arm". I felt aweful! It hurts so bad sometimes to be a mommy. Seriously. We woke up in the middle of the night and I could feel that her elbow was really swollen. Nick was preaching the next morning so Reese and I ventured off to find out what was going on. We discovered after an x-ray that she had fractured her left elbow. (We think Reese is left handed by the way). We were to follow up that next day to schedule an appointment for a cast. OH my! I am thinking...Beckham is coming at the lastest in 6 weeks. We are moving in 4 weeks...and now we are to have a cast on anywhere from 4-6 weeks....I will admit I was feeling slightly overwhelmed. The good news at the doctor was that she only has to wear it for 3 weeks. What a RELIEF! We can get the cast off before we move and before baby comes. I am so thankful...seriously. Reese is adjusting well. Yes, it is hot pink! Of course, what other color is there to have on your arm for 3 weeks? You can't miss it! Everyone has been soooo sweet to Reese...cards and your texts....and meals. Thanks everyone! What a blessing in a season such as this.


Thank you to Reese's friend "Brady Blackwell" for bringing her a teddy bear to make her feel better. Reese loves it!

In other news....
I surprised Nick and gave him tickets to a Cowboys game 2 weeks ago. I wanted to do something special for his graduation present...he is really close to finishing his Doctorate of Ministry degree....and I am proud of him. (And no, much to his dismay I will not be addressing him as Dr. Nick Floyd)...ha) He has worked so diligently to get it done before the baby comes. I really appreciate that! SO...I knew I could not go wrong surprising him with anything "football". We had fun...Nick enjoyed himself. I am happy.

1st Day of KDO/Painting Mommy's New Table

Today was Reese's 1st day back to Kids Day Out (KDO).  Cousin Parker is in the same class and also decided to wear green today....precious!


After I took a picture of Reese, she insisted that she take a picture of me too....I just go with the flow on these things...she is really into taking pictures with my camera.

Nick and Reese @ Fayetteville scrimage Monday night.  Go Shiloh!

After 4 years of marriage, I have decided to finish our master bedroom stuff before baby arrives....Nick has been asking for curtains for these 4 years of marriage...but I have just not made it happen....So...I am going to do it!  And...I also have been using a bookcase for my night stand...and finally went and got a nightstand....(found it at my favorite place ever...Tontitown Flea Market/Antique Mall)...$35.00.  I can always find great pieces there for great prices!  I love  a great bargain.   All it needs is a little bit of white or cream paint and it is ready to fit right into my home....(Nick makes fun of me b/c I paint everything white).  I enlisted my assistant painter....Reese Caroline for the job.  My style is shabby chic...(translation...you can get by with a messy paint job b/c the idea is not to cover every inch...in fact...the rougher it looks the better).  Anyways....Reese LOVES to help me paint things.  She was so proud of her side of the table.  You can see how intently she is working.  (Notice the size paint brush I gave her...hey...I wanted to keep things under control...you can't blame me!)  She doesn't know the difference...yet. ha
