Beckett Joshua Smith

We welcomed our sweet baby boy Beckett into this world on March 15th at 3:35 am. He weighed 7 lbs 8 oz. and was 21 inches long. No words can describe the feelings or emotions you feel when they place your baby into your arms for the very first time. What a miracle! I went into labor on Friday night while we were out to dinner with my family for my nephew Jacob's birthday. We decided to leave dinner early to head to the hospital. We went to the hospital empty handed. No suitcase, cameras, or anything for the baby. I was so afraid they were going to send me home because I had been having hard contractions for days with no progress. To my surprise, I was actually in labor! 5 hours after being admitted...I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy! Last week was definitely an emotional week! We are so grateful that Beckett is here and healthy!
