Happy Birthday Hudson!
While I have a quick minute, I just wanted to update my blog. On February 25th at 8:28 am, my son, Hudson, was born! He was 7 lbs, 11 oz and 19.5 inches long. He is perfect! I am in awe again of God's little miracles called babies. I mean seriously, when you see a baby and think about how they come to be here, how can anyone not believe in God! They are truly amazing, especially my little Hudson.
Hudson was delivered through a c-section. I was really nervous about it, but God calmed my nerves and all went incredibly well. I was able to go home at the 48 hour mark from my surgery and was so very thankful to be home. I delivered at Balboa Naval Medical Center and had a WONDERFUL experience, but there is something about being home and getting to begin our life as a family of four that is just priceless.
Hudson is healthy by all definitions of the word and is probably one of the biggest blessings in my life, besides my husband and daughter. I wake up each morning just thankful for another day to spend with this beautiful family God has chosen to bless me with. Our God is so good!
Madison is taking very well to her new role as a big sister. She is super excited to help in any way she can and she adores the times she gets to just hold her little brother and talk to him. I can tell that Madison is anxious for Hudson to already be big enough for her to "play" with, but she is very nurturing by nature and has taken to helping us care for him.
Thank you to all of you who have sent kind messages, voicemails, texts, emails, and prayers our way. We appreciate them all and can't even begin to tell you how much your thoughtfulness has meant to us. We have truly been blessed by you all. We have loved the decorative balloons, the beautiful flowers, the delicious meals, and all of the thoughtful little gifts you have bestowed upon us.
I love to get up early and work out. It starts my day off with energy while giving me peace and quiet as well as time to myself to talk with God. I am married to a wonderful man with whom we have a beautiful daughter and a dashing son! Life can't get much better than this!!
