Three years!!

I can't believe our sweet boy is already three years old! It still seems like yesterday we were waiting for him to make his entrance into the world. We can not imagine our life without him in it. He is wild and crazy at times but can be so sweet and loving too. We celebrated his birthday last weekend with my family and then we are planning on celebrating it again next weekend in St. Louis with Todd's family. He has been so excited about his birthday this year. I think he finally realized that it was HIS special day so he ate up every second!

He loved his cake!

Hudson's big present this year was a train table. It took Todd several hours to get it all put together. He was so ready for him to be done so he could play with it.

He was beyond excited when he saw his new train table!!

He has played with his new trains for hours. He loves it! He didn't want to go to Mother's Day Out this morning because he didn't want to leave his train table. I am so happy he loved his birthday present this year.

Happy Birthday Hudson!
Mommy and Daddy love you more than you will ever know!

Hudson's first day!

We decided to start Hudson in a Mother's Day Out Program this year. He is at the age where he needs to get out of the house and spend time with other kids. He is such a smart boy so we knew he would love it. I just wasn't ready for him to grow up. I had a few break downs before his first day. Overall, I think we both did pretty good with the transition. He went to an open house the Thursday before he started so that he get acquainted with his new "school." When we dropped him off last Monday he just walked right in like it was no big deal. When Todd started telling him bye, Hudson asked if mommy would be there with him. I lost it. He is used to Todd leaving him but not Mommy so it was so hard for to tell him that I was leaving too. He handled that much better than I did:) He had a great first day at school. He has been a couple more times since then. So far he is loving it! I always look forward to hearing about his day.

It's a......

We are very excited to announce that we will be welcoming a sweet baby BOY into the family in December!

We are so thankful for our healthy baby boy! I was so nervous going into this ultrasound. I just wanted to know that he was healthy and growing like he should be. Everything looks great! We do have to go for a follow-up ultrasound in 8 weeks to check the position of my placenta. Praying it does what is supposed to between now and then.

I can't wait to love on those sweet little feet!

I ordered these a few weeks ago off of Zulily. I promise not to dress them alike all the time but I thought they needed at least one matching outfit! I still can't believe I am going to be the mom of two sweet little boys. We are so excited for December to be here!

*Sorry for the iPhone pictures. Maybe I can scan the ultrasound pictures later and put them on here. It was just quicker this way for now!

Our Saturday

This Saturday was a do nothing kind of day. Todd did some work around the house but that was about it. After a hectic week and trying to get back in a routine with more kids and Todd going back to work, I think we all needed some rest! Hudson never sleeps past 6:45 so Todd got up with him so that I could try to get some sleep. I over did it this week so I was physically exhausted. It was nice to get some extra rest. Once I got up, I made some cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Breakfast is Hudson's favorite meal of the day so he was excited about getting cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

He was being silly while he was eating his breakfast!

After breakfast, Todd went on a cleaning streak and mopped the floors and vacuumed. Hudson loves to vacuum so he was excited to "help" daddy. He is getting to be such a big boy!

Saturday night, we went to my parents for dinner. My dad made his famous ribs for us. I have been craving them for awhile and he finally decided to make them. I should have taken a picture of them but we were too busy eating them! I took a hashbrown casserole that I had made and I also tried a new dessert recipe. I got the recipe for the Butterfinger Cake I made here. It was delicious!!
