I'm Getting Big!

We went to our 2 week check up today and my how we have grown! Hudson now weighs 6 pounds, 8.1 ounces and is now 19.9 inches long!!! He has gained over a pound and grown almost an inch and a half in less than two weeks. I could hardly believe it when they told me. Everything else looked good. They had to do the PKU test on him today and it almost made Mommy cry because he actually had real tears in his eyes. :( I don't know how I'm going to handle the visits where he gets his shots.

5 weeks...ha!

It turns out that Hudson had ideas of his own...he decided to come 4 weeks and one day early. He arrived on Monday, August 13th at 3:39 pm. He weighed 5 pounds, 10 ounces and was 18 1/2 inches long. Everything went really well at the hospital. We have been home now for almost a week and things are going great. Kelly and I were instantly in love with him!! We of course think he is the cutest thing ever. :) I will definitely keep the pictures flowing now...it was so hard to pick which ones to put on here today...I think we have taken a few hundred!

5 weeks and counting...

I am going to attempt to try this blogging thing to keep everyone up to date with what is occuring with us! We have exactly 5 weeks left until Hudson is due. I had a doctor's appointment today and everything looks good. We are right on schedule!

The nursery is finished and I couldn't be happier with it. It has turned out exactly as what I had pictured in my mind. Kelly put together the Pack 'N Play, stroller, swing, and papasan last weekend. He also wrestled with the carseat and got it installed. So, all in all, I think we are ready to go. It has been so much fun watching everything take shape!

I have included some pictures of the nursery, of me and my growing tummy, and a few of Kelly busily preparing.
