And the waiting begins......

We have officially started the waiting game! Although, I am pretty sure that Hudson is going to wait until his due date or after but everyone says you have to be ready if he decides to come early. I went to the doctor Thursday August 14th and not much progress. The doctor wasn't certain I had dilated any and then he said well maybe a little. He also reassured me that most first babies make you wait so I am thinking little Hudson may do just that:) Everything seems to be healthy. His heartbeat was in the 160's, my blood pressure is still good and my Strep B test came back negative so that was very good news. We are just getting anxious to meet our sweet boy!

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.

Todd and I with EK. I love her sweet face!

What a beautiful family:)
