Answered Prayers

I know that being a mom I am always going to worry about my baby and have been told you never stop worrying about your children. Which is of course why I worried when the doctor told us at Hudson's two month check-up he had a heart murmur. I had been told by numerous people that they are very common and heal on their own and usually don't cause any problems in the long run. I truly wanted to believe that he would have that kind of murmur and prayed very hard for that. Our prayers were answered and Hudson does has a very common kind of murmur. It of course has a very long name and I won't bore you with the details but it should heal by about nine months of age. The doctor also said that even if it doesn't I shouldn't worry because it will not cause him any problems. We were very very thankful! Thank you so much for you thoughts and prayers. It means so much to have all of you to lean on for support. I guess now I don't have to worry and Hudson can still play the University of Tennessee!!!

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:)

My babies:)

Don't worry Gracelyn will be getting a hair cut VERY soon!
