Six Month Stats

On April 5th Hudson turned Six Months Old. Hard to Believe!

He is so precious and so laid back...he is really the easiest baby.

At his 6 month appt. he weighed just under 20 lbs. and was almost 28 inches long. He is in the 90th percentile for both height and weight and 75th for head size.

So far he has only had one bite of a sweet potato and a couple bites of rice cereal tp which he gagged on both! I thought it was funny and Jeff thought it was so sad.

So far milk is treating him well and he is growing so I havent had the major urging to give him for food, except for the fact its fun that he can sit at the table with us in his new highchair!!

Well this post is honestly the best way to keep up with growth so TTFN to my one or 2 readers!!

Four Month Stats

Hudson turned 4 months on February 5th.

He weighed right around 17 pounds and was 28 inches long. He is in the 90th percentile for weight and 95th for height!

He is currently chewing on EVERYTHING and can roll from his back to tummy and tummy to back and on February 27th he said "Momma" for the first time and it was PRECIOUS!!!

Hudson went on his first youth trip this weekend to Camp Copass in Denton this weekend and was did awesome. He got a lot of attention and I think now that he is home he is super bored with just Jeff and I.

Well I know this is a boring post but basically just wanted to keep record of his development.

Peace Out!

This past Monday I took Hudson for his 2 month shots and check up. He was really 10 weeks old so just past two months, but oh well. First of all he weighed in at 13 lbs. 9 oz. and was 24 inches long. The Dr. said they are supposed to double their weight by two months and Hudson was about half a pound shy of achieving that.

People told me that taking your baby for shots was hard but that was HORRIBLE!!! Hudson is such a sweet laid back baby and he was just laying there chewing his hands and cooing and then I was told to hold his arms down. After the first shot he screamed and then had a hard time catching his breath for the next two. It was so Pitiful!!!

We have been blessed with a very content baby unless I eat something that doesnt agree with him, which has happend 4 times since his birth....I remember all 4 of those times quite well. Otherwise he is usually always happy. Hudson sleeps for about 3-4 hours at a time at night and now just wakes up once during the night to eat (for about 5 minutes) then goes back to sleep. I have done something that I swore I never would do and that is put him in bed with me. I only do this around 6 or 7 am and he will sleep til 10:30 or 11 if I all that to say there are days its totally worth it because then I get good sleep!

Hudson loves his swing, his play mat...not his tummy mat so much and loves, loves, loves his room (just not to sleep in).

Well this is more for my memory than anything, but here are a couple of pictures.

One is of Dr. White (who delivered Hudson and is our family Doctor) talking to him while he sleeps before his shots and the next is Hudson chewing his hands before his shots...I think he was nervous.

We are excited about having a baby at Christmas this year and it makes it even sweeter to know that there is a God that cares about us enough to send his Son to die for us. I cannot imagine ever having to make that choice....heck I can barely take my baby to get shots!

Have a Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Coming Up For Air

I know its been a while...but I guess it just takes me a while to adjust to life with a new baby. Last week I went back to work 2 days a week while Jeff keeps Hudson....which has worked out so great. God worked it out as he always does...even though I ALWAYS question how....

Anyway....I have tried to adjust to life with less sleep and interupted sleep but beyond that Hudson is a great baby and is really starting to develop a personality. He smiles now the most precious little gummy smile. Needless to say Jeff and I are so crazy about him and I have loved watching Jeff be a daddy to Hudson. He is so good and patient with him.

I am so thankful that God chose Jeff and I to be Hudsons mommy and daddy and that he gifted us with a precious baby boy.

Just wanted everyone to know that we are alive and well and spending every spare moment as a family!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone....we have SOOO much to be thankful for!!

The Birth Story as I remember it!

Monday Ocotber 5th I went to my regular 39 week and 6 day appt. Just one day shy of full term at 3:30 in the afternoon. When Dr. White did the sonogram he noticed that my amniotic fluid was VERY low for the 2nd time in the month. At 38 weeks I had low flluid but was able to bring it back up to a high range of normal so we decided to monitor it at that point.

Anyway, Dr. White said okay you are full term and we have waited to for God's time table and this just tells me that Hudson is ready. He looked at Jeff and I and said lets have this baby tonight. The weirdest thing is that we were so READY to have this baby but then he tells us that he will need to be C-sectioned and in the next couple of hours I cannot describe to you the thoughts and emotions that occured. I was one of those people that really did not want a C-section but when the Doctor tells you that is the safest way to get him here you do whatever you need to do.

We left the Doctors office at 4:15 and were told to be at the hospital by 5:30....What? So after the fastest shower, blow dry, makeup, finish packing job ever we made it at 5:30. We were checked in and I was immediately hooked up to a lot liquid IV's because of my low fluid....but after 3 nurses and 4 blown veins the anesthesiologist finally gets the IV in and working. At the same time the other nurse is monotoring Hudson and cannot find his heartbeat because he kept "running" from the monitor is what she said. Last time I checked there wasnt much room to run in my belly so needless to say I was very stressed out! At about 6:15 I was taken down to the OR where I was to be given my spinal block first....after 11 attempts the 12th attempt hit a nerve in my lower back and literally felt like a jolt of electricity that sent me off the table. The first 11 shots didnt hurt too bad but that 12th one is seriously the most pain I have ever felt in my life. Anyway, eventually Jeff was allowed in and both Doctor White and Dr. Alling got started. Let me just say that it is an awesome feeling to have 2 very strong Christian men cutting on you and helping bring your baby into the world. After their first attempt to get Hudson out they had to get a vacuum out because he kept going back into my maybe he did run from the heart monitor earlier.

I remember feeling very strange tingles but thankfully felt nothing until the Doctor lifted my perfectly screaming baby over the sheet with huge blue eyes that were wide that point I felt more than I ever have in my life....because my heart was overwhelmed with love for the most perfect and beautiful baby boy I have ever seen in my life! God is so so Good! Needless to say Jeff and I were very emotional...okay well I still am because I cry everytime I think about it.

October 5th, 2009 at 7:35 p.m. our life was changed FOREVER!!

Jeff and the nurse took Hudson back to the room as the doctors got me sewn back up and I went straight back to my room and saw that my baby had blonde hair and huge blue eyes. My doctor had been convinced my whole pregnancy that I was going to have a big baby but to my suprise Hudson weighed 7 lbs. 1 ounce and was 20 1/2 inches long. Long and skinny! yah we dont know where that came from either!

That first night was kind of rough and Jeff did an amazing job...especially for someone that has never changed a diaper in his life. I was very sick from the anasthesia and Jeff was having to take care of both Hudson and I and did it well. That first night was definitely baptism into fire but we made it. We stayed 3 nights in the hospital with very little sleep and needless to say I could not wait to get home.

We were released Thursday morning and Hudson so far has been a very easy baby. He sleeps good, eats good and is very mild tempered. We are blessed and overjoyed and understand this side of Heaven just a small taste of what our Creator feels for us....its incredible!

This summary may seem choppy but I just wanted to be able to remember as much as possible.

Showered with Love

SO I am terrible about updating my blog. I hope to be better once Hudson is born....I am 32 weeks pregnant and only have between 6-7 weeks left of being pregnant. I cannot wait to have my sweet baby boy and not be pregnant in August and September, but truthfully there is a part of me that will miss the feeling of being pregnant. Feeling your baby move and grow is one of the coolest feelings I have ever felt!! I love when I lay down in bed at the end of the day and know that is when he will start moving and grooving!

July 12th I was given a baby shower by some of our close friends the Barrows and was blessed to see so many people that I have not seen in years and in return be blessed with an incredible amount of gifts. Needless to say Hudson is not lacking for clothing!

July 26th Jeff and I were given a great shower by our church family and again were overwhelmed by the amount of people and gifts. It is a very humbling experience to be loved and given so much by our friends and family!

We are so excited for the next few weeks and it is amazing how God works out the details! My job situation worked out amazingly well, I have felt great and the timing of God giving Jeff over a month to rest up from a CRAZY summer is incredible.
Well I hope to be better about updating....Until next time I will continue to grow a baby...haha in this hot oven called Texas Heat!!

A little Late Update

So this is a picture of our baby boy Hudson. I am late posting this because this sono pic is from May 4th! He looks like a baby now and we already love him sooo much!

We get to see him again this Friday the 22nd. I love our doctor because he does a sono every time we go, which is cool to see how much they grow from appointment to appointment.

This Friday I will be 21 weeks and I am starting to feel really good. I only get sick about once every two weeks, which is totally manageable and still so worth it!

Well that is all for now!
