This is what EK does when you tell her to burp the baby...so cute.
I love love love watching them play together....well I guess her playing with him. We are looking forward to watching them grow up together. We just hope Hudson has a few more cousins to play with:) We also enjoyed a surprise visit with my brother Chad. He hadn't planned on coming for Thanksgiving because they are coming to Tennessee for Christmas this year. He flew from Denver to Tulsa on Friday afternoon so he could be with the family for Grandpa's funeral. We were happy to get to see him a month earlier than we had planned but not the circumstances around it. We were glad that Hudson finally got to meet his Uncle Chad and we are looking forward to him meeting his Aunt Brandy at Christmas:) Bonding time....Don't they look manly in the leopard chair?!
Just before going to Chili's for dinner...If you know either of my brothers you know we go to Chili's just about every time we are together. I Love Love Love this picture...so sweet.
Ella Kate loved having Uncle Chad here too. We get to see him again in a couple weeks:)
1. This is Todd and I with his brother Byron and his wife Jennifer.
2. This picture was taken at their gorgeous wedding in Dallas, Texas on Memorial day weekend.
3. Todd and I got married fifty six days from this day!
4. We are both blessed with AMAZING families!!
So now that I have done my part in this fun game of tag I get to tag FOUR people to do the same on their blog. I tag...Megan, Mindy, Rebecca and Jill. Have fun girls:)

You know I couldn't end my post without adding a couple pictures. I caught Gracelyn sitting with Hudson on the couch and I couldn't resist taking a picture of them together. For those of you who know us well you know how much we love our other baby Gracelyn. She is so spoiled and thinks she is a baby too. She has been with us for three and a half years and she is definitely a mommas girl. If Todd has Hudson she takes advantage of it and sits as close to me as she can. She is a mess. She has handled the addition a lot better then we thought she would but you can tell she gets jealous at times. We hope one day her and Hudson will be the best of friends but for now we will just have to enjoy times like these:)
Don't worry Gracelyn will be getting a hair cut VERY soon!

While they were here we decided to take a Saturday trip to Memphis. We enjoyed some ribs at the Rendezvous and visited the Peabody. We topped it off but having dessert at Jillians in Peabody Place and watched some football on the big screens. We then headed back to Henderson so the boys could watch the rest of the Texas Tech/Texas game. The boys being Alabama fans were really happy with the outcome of that one!!
Annah Grace and Jefforey posing in front of Auto Zone park. Jefforey was being...well Jefforey in every picture so this was the best one I got:)
They of course were so happy to meet Hudson and he was a very good boy while they were here. We were so sad to see them leave on Sunday but we are already planning our next visit with them!

Hudson with his daddy
I loved cuddling with my sweet baby. I was so glad he had a warm costume since it ended being a cold October night. He was such a good boy and stayed awake for most of the night.

Today was Hudson's two month check up and time to get his shots. He was such a good boy and I think he did better than Mommy did. He weighs 11 pounds and 8 ounces and is 25 inches long so he has gained about four pounds and grown four inches since he was born. He is gaining weight like he should and seems to be right on track with everything. The doctor did find a heart murmur that they had not detected before. He said he could have already had it or he could have developed it since then. He seemed concerned but also felt that it is minor and should hopefully heal on its own. He is sending him for an electrocardiogram just to be sure. We will have that sometime in the next week or two and it will be sent to Vanderbilt to be reviewed by a pediatric cardiologist. I really didn't know what to think when the doctor was telling us all this I was surprised and a little nervous about it all. I asked him lots of questions and and he reassured me that they usually heal on their own and without causing too many problems. After, the doctor left the room...I was holding back tears....I teased Hudson that he can't have a heart murmur because he HAS to play football! Please pray that everything will be OK and that it is minor and will heal on its own.

Me and Hudson with all our favorite girls:) Amy, Bobbi, Tracy and Karen (Cindy must have been actually working) were the girls I worked with and became so close to. They were some of the first to find out about Baby Hudson and had to help me keep it a secret along with helping me with sweet Abby. They were amazing and I loved every minute at Castlio because of them. There were so many times after breaks I would come back to work not wanting to be there and they got me through it. Between the drama, gossip, making fun of my southern accent and lots and lots of laughter....they made my year. I miss them all so so much and want them to know just how much they mean to me:)
No trip to St. Louis is complete without taking a stroll downtown St. Charles. Todd grew up there and we took lots of trips there while we were dating. We were excited to take him down there for the first time.
Later that week...Zack, Cherith and Ella Kate came for a visit. Zack had to go out of town for work so Cherith and Ella Kate stayed here and we enjoyed every minute with them. We spent lots of time at Nana and Poppa's so that I could play with Ella Kate and Aunt Cherith got some quality time with Hudson. He loves her and she helped us out a lot while she was here. When it was pretty we spent some time outside so Ella could play. She loves being outside and running around the yard and playing in the leaves.

Ella Kate holding her "baby". She was so cute with him. Every time she would wake up from a nap or come into the room where he was she would pop that passy out and say "baby". She also liked trading pacifiers with him or if he was crying she would take him his. It was so precious. I can't wait to watch them grow up together and be the best of friends:)

Hudson in his bath for the first time...he wasn't real sure what to think.
Isn't he the cutest?!
He wasn't too happy when it was over and he had to be dried off and changed so he needed his passy to make him feel better.
He was soooo tired!

Things have also been very busy for us the last couple weeks. Todd is back to school and staying very busy and I have started baby-sitting a sweet baby girl. She is almost a year old and a wonderful baby. The plan is to keep her until I have Hudson and then start keeping her again after he is born. I had planned on staying home with him and then eventually keeping a few kids and this opportunity came early. I am also keeping my cousins Miller and Andre two days a week which is another blessing because I can spend time with my two favorite boys while staying home with mine!
We also had a great visit with Zack, Cherith and Ella Kate. Zack had some business close to us so they came in for a long weekend. We love when they come to visit and hate that they live so far away. Ella Kate is getting so big and of course beautiful as ever. She is walking and talking...her favorite words our puppy and baby and "ba"or ball. I worked very hard on Aunt "B" but that just confused her with ball. I know she will say it eventually:) We hated to see them leave but we are looking forward to seeing them in a couple weeks for Hudson's arrival. Zack keeps asking me if I can wait until the weekend of Tennessee's first football game because they had already planned to come that weekend. I told him I would do my best but that also happens to be the weekend of his due date. We will see what happens:)
We are almost finished with all the work on the house. Just a little more painting to finish up and and we hope to start moving stuff in this weekend. So much work has already been done and it looks amazing. We are so excited about starting our family in OUR new home. I will post some pictures once we get all settled in.
Todd and Ella Kate were watching TV but of course she looked up everytime I took a picture. They were so sweet together.
The girls after church...we missed having Brandy there with us.
What a beautiful family:)

Todd began his first day of school with the kids on Friday. Although they haven't started P.E. yet he did spend some time in the classrooms getting to know the kids. I am very excited for him to get back to school and doing what he loves but at the same time I am very nervous about him being 30 minutes away if I were to need him. Luckily, my mom has been helping out by taking me to doctor's appointments so Todd doesn't have to take off work but I would much rather have him there. We both know that Hudson is going to come when HE is ready not when it is convenient for us but hopefully Todd will have time to get there. So please keep the three of us in your prayers the next 25 days as we await baby Hudson's arrival.
