Welcoming Hudson

I think this might be the most pictures I've ever posted in one post: 
Here is Parker's first time laying eyes on his new brother. He said "Bee-bee" and then quickly got distracted by all of the medical equipment and was off to play. It was fun to see him meet his new brother though!

I told you there were a lot of pictures! I always want to remember who was there to see Hudson on his birthday! It was a special day we will never forget. The next morning, Parker came to the hospital to see his new brother again-- and this time, he was more interested in the baby. There weren't as many distractions and people around. It was so nice to have family time together. He sure loves his baby brother if you can't tell in these pictures. :)

My favorite picture!
We were so giddy to wake up to our sweet new little boy in the morning. He has been a really good sleeper so far! I have practically had to wake him up to eat in the night. He usually sleeps a five to six hour stretch, wakes up and eats around 4 or 5 am and than goes back to bed for another 2-3 hours! It is AWESOME! (I was singing the word "awesome" in my high pitched opera voice when I typed that word just so you know.)
Hudson was all ready to go home! Don't you just want to eat those little cheeks??
Steve is such a cute, proud daddy. I love watching him interact with our boys. I am so lucky to have him as the father of our children and as my husband forever and ever! :)
Can you tell that Hudson is loved yet? Looking at all of these pictures makes me want to go cuddle him right now-- so that's all for today. More pictures later-- yes more! Can you believe it?! Hope you enjoyed!
