What an awesome holiday season! Life is so different with Bianca in it! We had a ball and she had a GREAT time this holiday season. There are tons of photos but here are a few. A couple of her opening presents and another with a hair bow (does not happen often!) and of course a new photo with her favorite guy. We have been loving to have Eric off of work over the past week. It is going to be hard for both him and Bianca to go back to work...She is DEFINITELY a daddy's girl.
Hope everyone had a great holiday. Still praying that all adoptions in process roll through smoothly. God bless you all. Much love from the Beckings.

So, as you might have sorted out already....we made it to see Santa...Went over really great as you can tell by the quality photo! Actually, I thought it was both hilarious and appropriate that we should have a photo of our daughter screaming in Santa's face this year. I did not have the heart to make her sit in his lap...Thought it might traumatize her for life! She made it through however, only wish I did not look so happy while she is screaming...I promise, I am not a bad parent! What a hoot....Who comes up with that stuff...When we think, okay, let's go to the mall, sit our kid down in a total stranger's lap while he is dressed in disguise, and beg them to look pleased, while in the mean time we pay out the nose for a photo I could have taken as a small child! Hmm....Something to ponder.
With the holiday season in full swing we are loving every minute of it! It has been so much fun having Bianca home for Christmas this year. I remember last year at this time and even Thanksgiving, we pretty much spent both holidays in the airport on our way to see the little lady. I am happy that this year, she is home, (still hard to believe at times) she is happy, and adjusting remarkably well.
She is taking a few steps alone now for those of you who love to know that kind of stuff. She stands alone really well- unless she realizes what is happening and then she drops to her bum immediately....Of course I think it is all great, brilliant, superstar kind of stuff- but I try not to get caught up in what age she reaches all of the milestones....I think people can get to competitive with that stuff, and I am just so pumped she is home, that it is really all I can focus on!
Much love to you all, and tonight especially to those of you who have followed our blog that have either adopted, or are in the process. You have been such great support to us. Our prayers are with those of you still in process. Our best friend is in it right now and I feel like I am re-living part of it with her. God Bless you guys, and keep your chin up....remembering that- This too shall pass.

I know it has been forever since I logged in!!!! Yikes! Life is rockin' for the Becking family and I am telling you, we are loving life. God is doing some really cool stuff in our family. We have been totally enjoying Bianca in a major way! And we are loving the holiday season. It seems like every day Bianca does something new. What a cool age. She is just about to let go of the couch and walk on her own and has been trying to get a few steps in while we are not looking. She is crawling around so fast we call her the speeding bullet. I love it that she is home for Christmas this year. I am not taking anything for granted with her after the LONG wait to bring her home. It has been so much fun for her to begin to get to know everyone and she is quite the entertainer. She simply MUST wave at every single person we see. Even while driving I look over and she is waving at the guy next to us at the stop light. She is blowing kisses, clapping on command and on beat I might add. She loves to scream with sheer delight (or at least that is what I am going to call it).
Her hair is growing so fast it is hard to believe but the back is so curly you would never know how long it is unless you see it wet. She stand along the TV and bounces up and down so fast that we roll in the floor laughing at her "dance moves". Any time we laugh at ANYTHING, she shows us much more. She is totally in to giving love to everything also. This child will be a lover, not a fighter I am guessing! I am also loving to watch Eric being a dad. What a great life Bianca will have with her daddy....He is so eager to teach her to ride a motorcyle....Patience my man, let's get her walking first, then we buy the little Honda 50 motorcycle...and I am sure that is the tip of the iceberg! He is a sucker for her already!
Okay a lot of baby talk! I am adjusting really well to momhood and I am already planning our next addition...I will leave you all hanging on that one for a while. I do have my moments when I wonder what day it is, but then I get back on track and just take it all in. I am really digging deep to make sure I am following my passions and to balance that with being a mom, wife, and friend.
I am going to post a bunch of photos so everyone can get caught up with the hot stuff. Much love to you all! Chantelle

All is well and we are loving being parents. Bianca is learning new stuff everyday. Let me first say thank you once again for all of you that are still sending support, love and prayers out to our family. We can't believe how much support and love we have coming our way these days. Bianca has brought so much joy to us and to others. She is amazing and we both can't get enough of her. Chantelle has really been working with her and she is learning new things. She is also getting a little attitude. When we go into Targer she likes to squeal at the top of her lungs like a bird squawking to let others know she is there. It's funny, but very loud. Chantelle has taught her how to say more in sign language. She blows kisses now. When you tell her to give someone love she will lay her head down on your chest. She is getting really close to walking. She cruises around our leather ottoman like a trackstar. She does laps and nothing can stop her. We love our little girl. We will get some pictures up soon, but Chantelle is better at that than me. We do thank all of you who have commented on the blog to let us know you keep up with us. It's nice to know the impact our little one has had on people. To make a comment you can click on the word comment at the bottom of this entry and it will let you write to us. We know this is such a God thing and we just stand back and watch the miracles in our life. Life is good.
