This was during the recap part at the end of the show. I would probably stare at this crazy guy too. He loved it.

We were wanting to do something different and wanted to incorporate the idea that we don't know what she was having. We were going to do a pink and blue cake with a big question mark until I saw the zebra themed shower that Julie had done. It was perfect especially if you know Rachel...she is not your typical baby pastel mommy!
This is not a good picture of the invitations but they read:
Rachel is due
The Connor house could soon be a zoo
Come help us celebrate upcoming pink or blue
Please bring something for mommy and baby too!!!
Here are a few of the decorations and some of her gifts.
A very surprised Rachel!! This is my favorite Rachel face:)
Reading our prediction cards. We wrote on pink or blue cards whether we thought she was having a girl or boy, arrival date and time, height and weight and a piece of advice for her or a message for baby. It was a lot of fun seeing what everyone predicted and it will be interesting to see who will be right!
I remembered to get a picture after everyone else had left so here are just a few of us.
Hudson came once everyone had left so I had to get a picture of the two of them. We can not wait to see whether Hudson will be getting a new best friend or a new little girlfriend (that is if Rachel and I have anything to do with it). We are all so thankful that God answers prayers and that Rachel is finally going to be a mommy!! We can not wait to meet baby "C" and can finally give this sweet baby a name:)

Hudson is starting to love playing with toys or anything we can get his hands on. If he sees something he wants he finds a way to get it. He is a very active baby and rolls and scoots all over the place. He has several favorite toys but he especially loves anything that talks or sings and lights up.
Another one of Hudson's favorite toys is his Elmo. This Elmo was actually mine and my parents found it a while back when they were doing some cleaning. He loves it and of course it laughs and says "that tickles"!!
Saturday we went to the Freed-Hardeman/Union basketball game. We had a blast cheering on the Lions and Lady Lions and were happy that the Lions defeated Union for the second time this year. Hudson also got some loving from my friend Paige. He loves her and she of course loves him too.
Hudson and his friend Redick. Redick is the son of our friends Chuck and Bethany. Chuck and I went to high school and college together and he is the youth minister at our church. Redick loves hugging and kissing on Hudson so at the game Hudson decided he wanted to be sweet back. He was really just trying to eat his face but it still looks sweet:) I LOVE that I get to watch our babies grow up together!

Then, it was time for dinner. We went down town to The Majestic Grille....Amazing!!! I honestly felt like we were on our honeymoon all over again. The service was amazing and the food was DELICIOUS!! We enjoyed our date and I tried not to talk about Hudson while we were there. If you are ever down town Memphis and looking for a place to dine we recommend it:) Thanks again Todd for an amazing day!!
Sunday came and it was time to head back home to reality. We enjoyed our night out but we were both so ready to see Hudson. He seemed to enjoy his night away from us too. He slept all night for his Nana and Poppa and they had to wake him up for church. He is always so good for them and they even offered to keep him again:)
Hudson in his new outfit he got for Valentine's Day. He also got the book "Love You Forever" my favorite children's book and some Baby Kisses for his lips and face. He is already five and half months old and he loves rolling all over the place and playing with his little feet:)

Some of you may also remember that my niece Ella Kate was born six weeks early. She was born a little over five pounds and was a giant compared to Kealeigh. She did not have as many complications but the first two weeks of her life were also spent in the NICU. We are all so thankful to the Nurses and Doctors that looked over her and we all know that both of these sweet girls are so lucky to be here. Thanks to the March of Dimes and their research we are blessed with two beautiful babies that otherwise may not be here today.
If you would like to donate in honor of Kealeigh, Ella Kate or another sweet baby in your life please view my website: www.marchofdimes.org/Blewis412. Thanks for your support!
This is Ella Kate today!!!

I got this recipe from my cousin Katie who I think got it from Judy Harris. So I can't take full credit for it but it is sooo delicious. I thought I would share it with you all:
1 box of Devil's Food Cake Mix
3/4 cup of Powdered Sugar
8 oz. of Cool Whip
4 oz. of cream cheese
1 can of ready made Chocolate Frosting
Mix the cake and bake according to directions in a bundt (I just used two round pans) pan. Slice the cake into two layers. Mix the powdered sugar, Cool Whip & cream cheese together and spread this mixture between the two layers. Microwave the frosting for about 20 seconds and pour it slowly over the top and sides of the cake.

I take advantage of every opportunity to get pictures of these two together. So precious! I love that they are so close in age and I hope that they become the best of friends.
