white on black

My grandma is redoing her kitchen - how exciting! She chose white cabinets and black granite and is super nervous about what it will look like. Wouldn't we all be?! But I think it will look great!!

Here's some pictures to ease your mind, momma!

Love you!


Here is a little laughter for your Friday - Hudson gave his first laugh yesterday, I was beside myself! Such a treat to see him grow, below is a quick video of one of his laughs. It wasn't the best giggle but I fumbled around trying to find my phone, then trying to open my camera. Needless to say, I'm glad I was able to catch this giggle of his!

Above is Josh and Hudson in their Team Barcelona Soccer jerseys, this is Josh's favorite pro team and his buddy gifted Hudson with his very own jersey - josh is a proud papa.

I'm so thankful for a grandma who sends the most amazing packages. It's such a treat to open the front door and there be sitting a box filled with goodies. I've been getting these amazing packages since I was a little girl, she even continued sending them when I was in college. If you have ever been away at school it's a special thing to get a package full of things that make you think of family. Now my packages include things for Hudson too :^)

So thankful!

new trick

This is classic Hudson, he is so curious about things always analyzing everything, he is so curious!

Hudson learned a new trick over the weekend, Josh and I were both home to see it firsthand and he even repeated it to show you all!

This was the first spontaneous thing we have done since we had Hudson. We didn't even bring the diaper bag - we are pros! No tears, no paci - just smooth sailing!

No this does not mean I'm ready for another...sorry mom!

change of weather

This was our past weekend. Hudson sported his new uofl apparel, we took walks enjoying the fall weather and aunt Liz spoiled Hudson as usual! We have started Hudson on rice cereal, I took a video of his first spoon feeding last night, I will post it soon!

4 months old!

This big boy is 16 lbs today! I really can't believe we have had him for 4 months, it has been so much fun. 

Things Hudson likes at 4 months:

Tries to sit up, likes tummy time, started finding his legs and feet, likes reading books, wearing 6 month clothes, wants to crawl so bad, 6 ounce bottles, hold his head up and still loves his baths.

Oh my he is such a delight I really can't believe how much he is changing and growing, he so badly wants to crawl and sit-up unassisted. I'm cherishing every day we have together, time really does fly by.

{This morning at the doctors}

Aunt Liz came to the doctors with us today, sweet boy got 4 shots like a champ!

Trying to hold the bottle by himself!

long days

This sweet boy of ours slept 12 hours straight last night, I'm pretty sure with the amount of sleep I got last night I could conquer the world!

I think with each day that passes he looks more and more like josh. He is growing up so quickly, I kept hearing how quickly they grow up but I just can't believe it - It's way too fast! I treasure any nap where he wants to snuggle on my chest and everytime feeding session where he just gazes into my eyes, oh he has my heart!

Samantha is very smitten with HW but he shows no interest (good boy!)

Very thankful for this sweet man, he is so good with our son, hw is a lucky boy!
