Summer Lovin'

It's summer time! Hudson got his first taste of summer. 
I just can't get over how cute he looks in his swim suit.
                  Daddy and Hudson matched today so I had to get a picture of my two loves in blue.
                                                                 How cute is this?
                                         He was really tired of me trying to get a good picture.
                                                     Me and my little man. I love this hat!
                                A family shot by the pool. Poor Hudson, if only the hat fit him....
 It doesn't look like it in this picture but he really enjoyed the water. I have a feeling this guy is going to be hard to keep out of this pool next summer.

Hudson: Weeks 3 & 4

 For Memorial Day this year my hubby decided to grill hamburgers and hot dogs. I do have to say that he is quite the grill master because these burgers were delicious!
 I've always loved how cuddly babies are after a bath and my son is no exception.
He is wide awake here and I'm pretty sure he is pretty happy to be done with his bath.
 Hudson hanging out in his pjs.... if you haven't noticed already I love my baby in his pajamas!
                                                 Hudson always has his tongue out :P
                                                                     Hudson & Mom
                        This is Hudson taking his first bottle. I couldn't believe how fast he drank it!
                                                      Nathan did a great job feeding him!
                                                                     Play time!

                               This is kind of a silly face but don't I look cute in my overalls?
                                                           Theres that tongue again...

Everyday Life with Our Little Man

We are home and enjoying every minute of life with our little man. He is so precious to us. We seem to "oooo" and "awww" over every little noise, smirk, grunt and surprisingly we even think its funny when he toots.
My Grandma Kathleen is very fond of her first great grandchild.

So tiny... This picture was taken a few weeks ago. He already fills up more space in his bouncer.

What a sweet boy.

Hudson supporting the Cardinals.

 This is on our way to his first doctor appointment at 6 days old. He love his car seat!
 Hudson always has his tongue out. After he was born we called him a giraffe because he was constantly sticking his tongue in and out.
 Here is a picture of me and my baby!
Oh to be a baby in pajamas as cute as these.
This picture is my favorite. Is there anything more precious?

Hudson Wayne

Here is the story of how our little guy came into the world.
This is my husband Nathan and I. I was about 37 weeks along in this picture and super anxious to meet  our little guy.

 At 39 weeks we decided to head to the hospital to be induced. Nathan & I arrived at 8 P.M. and by 8:30 I was having contractions every 2-3 minutes. After a loooong night 21 hours of labor we had our precious addition.
 Our family waited patiently in the hallway.
 Here he is! This is the first picture of Hudson. He weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz. and was 20 inches long.
I love this picture of the two grandmas celebrating the birth of their grandson. The sheer joy here is more than words can express.
 Doesn't he look all pink and perfect?

 What a proud Dad. I feel so blessed. I couldn't ask for a better husband to love and support me through labor and delivery. Everything went so well and I'm so thankful for this man who was there for me every step of the way.
I just can't get enough of this guy. 
Here are the proud grandparents. 

Hours after birth Hudson had his first bath.

Look at all that hair. There is so much she had to brush the gunk out!

I love the ink prints on his feet. Just so you know his prints turned out great :)

Hudson in his pjs all clean and fresh.

Here is a picture of my momma, Mimi and baby Hudson. 

Here is photo of Nathan's mom, Nana and Baby Hudson after we made it home.

New at This...

Hi Everyone!
I finally have time to sit down a get started at this blogging thing. I'm really excited to share with you the adventures over the next few years. My husband and I recently had a little boy that we named Hudson Wayne. He is such a precious addition to our family. We look forward to posting pictures and stories of our day to day lives so you can keep up with this growing. So bear with me as I get the hang of this thing. :)
