Beckett is on the Way!

My sister-in-law, Mandy, went in for a doctor's appointment and found out she wasn't going home. Instead, she's having her baby today!

We're all very excited about meeting our newest family member, Beckett King Smith. Although, I don't think Mandy was completely ready. She text me this morning to ask how to make roast spaghetti and said she was trying to put away some frozen meals for once the baby was here. I don't think she meant this afternoon!

Ready or not, I always love a new arrival. It's magical to see and hold a little person who will forever be a part of your life. Even though it's been nearly two years, I still remember the first time we visited Ruby Belle. She was just days old when we drove up to northwest Arkansas to visit.

However, I don't know if this little princess is quite ready for the arrival of her little brother. She's used to ruling the roost and having undivided attention, especially from Pop.

I think she'll be able to maintain herself as a top priority ... doesn't hurt that she's the first and a girl.
