Life is Good!

Just when you think life can't get any better it does. It doesn't take much to make me happy really, it truly is the small and simple things in life that makes life truly sweet. Although Mike and I are both tired of the little time we have each day as a family (mainly because we only have a couple of hours with Hudson before bed each day to truly play with him and be together as a family Monday through Friday) there are still those little quiet moments that make my heart swell with joy and gratitude for the moments we do have together reguardless of their length.

Here are some of my favorite photographs of our sweet moments over the past couple of weeks.
Mike bought this stuffed dog for Hudson and he loves it so much it gets carried all around our house!
Hudson has been obsessed with the tape measure, in fact I recently had to hide it because he would not give it up when we needed to use it for something.
Our little Minion for Halloween, I made his costume and everything!
Hudson is so curious and is SO aware of his surroundings, when we put up decorations while he was sleeping that was the first thing he noticed when we went outside for the first time. Here he is discovering the candle inside the pumpkin (don't worry it wasn't lit).
I was Lucy from Dispicable Me 2, Mike was Gru and Hudson was our Minion
Maybe someday I will get around to covering this rocking chair; there is adorable polk a dotted fabric at Hancock fabrics I just haven't had the time or extra funds to go and purchase it. I love this picture though beceause Hudson loves his stuffed animals and has to have them when rocking him to sleep; I love it because they are almost as big as he is and it is precious to watch him cart them around.
When is Hudson not sitting on Mike or jumping on his back. I love this picture because Mike was just hanging out on the floor and Hudson brought him a book and sat right down; Mike had to be creative and guess what pictures he was looking at and make up a story about it at the same time.
The two pictures above are of Hudson sitting on things again, he loves to sit on random things or things that are his size. At first I thought the picture of Hudson on the cables were electrical cables but Mike promises they go to a bridge at a park they were recently at.
Right now this is my favorite maternity shirt because it is pink and I am having a girl, I have always liked the color pink but have never been one to truly wear it this is the first pink shirt I have actually purchased for myself that is this vibrant and that I actually wear often and enjoy it.
Mike and I have enjoyed going to football games for one of his young men at church. Even though it was cold it is fun to bundle up and wrap Hudson up as well.
Our sweet Hudson on the Teeter Todder with his Dad; look at that face I love it!
Family Hike and my two handsome boys! (top picture) Hudson once again sitting all on his own; ha ha I just can't get enough of his adorable personality

This has been Hudson's routine every single day after we get home from work; we can't go inside until he has had a chance to sit upfront and press the hazard light button and put his hands on the wheel!

My favorite month of the year!

I have to say September is by far my absolute favorite month out of the entire year! Probably because it is my Birthday month! This year was extra, extra special because for my birthday my Sister and her adorable family came to visit me in DC! It seriously was perfect, and on top of it she was here when we found out what we are having! Just when I thought life couldn't get any better my husband and I went to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a family vacation before the month was over as well! So I had quite an exciting Birthday month and feel so blessed for all the amazing things in my life. I thank Heavenly Father for the precious moments and memories that all of these experiences have brought to me in my life. I would be lost without my Savior and feel blessed for all the amazing people in my life.

August Craziness

The month of August has been a complete whirl wind for our family not only at home but work has been super busy as well. Mike and I are so grateful for all the blessings we have in our life the people that Heavenly Father has placed in our life and the Angels sent to look after us.

For those of you who don't know, Hudson will no longer be the only child in our household. We look forward to finding out what we are having and to the new adventures that come with adding another kid to the family.

My good friend and hairstylist was in town this month so I had to get in and see her for a new look. I love it and it is the perfect length not too short yet still long enough to curl.

Here are some Belly shots from this pregnancy, I am beginning to show which is always nice, I feel better about myself wearing maternity clothes now. :) lol

Here is Hudson at the splash pad, this kid LOVES the water and LOVES the splash pad. The second we pull into the parking lot he goes crazy babbling and laughing and pointing at the splash pad. He is so smart and so aware of his surroundings Mike and I are amazed by our little smarty pants.

I love these boys, we love to play outside and go for walks and any time I say Hudson want to go Bye Bye he will walk straight to the door because he knows and loves that Bye Bye means getting out of the house. :)

Last week was an insane week for us, I went in to see the Dermatologist on Monday because I had a spot on my collar bone that has been bugging me for years. She took one look at it and was like "yeah, I am 98% positive that is skin cancer" so they took a biopsy and by Thursday I found out it came back positive for a Basil Cell Carcinoma and by Friday I went in to just speak with the surgeon to set up surgery but low and behold blind sided me and said "the room is ready lets go ahead and remove that thing"..... So, I figured better now than later right, so 30 minutes later local anisthetic lots of deep breaths and it was gone. December I go in for my full skin evaluation to see if there are anymore spots that need to be removed and then I will be seen twice a year for 3 years and then once a year for the rest of my life. I am blessed that it is the most common type of skin cancer found in America 8 out of 10 individuals end up getting this type of skin cancer. However being only 25 years old and being diagnosed already scares me, so no matter how careful I have been all these years in the sun caking on the sunscreen, I will have to be even more careful.

Hudson is so sweet this month he has really been into carring a blanket around and grabing the stuffed animals from out of his crib that he sleeps with at night. Mike and I's favorite is he has two knitted blankets that friends made him not only are they his favorite but he loves to put them on his head and walk around. We just laugh because he looks like a little ghost wearing them, but its cute because he likes it and will laugh because he can see through the knitted holes.

Whats new, Hudson loves to do boy things with his Dad. He loves going to the Home Depot, he loves to push his lawn mower around and he loves to hammer things. We love this little guy.
Did I mention that Mike has started teaching him how to drive? Looks like I am going to have two individuals in my household obsessed with cars. :)
