it's me

hello dear friends
happy end of the week to you all...

thought it was about time to give you an update on our little family of four {grin}
I just love saying that

ellie girl says "hi" to you all too! 
my little, silly, ornery girlie...sometimes "wow" is all I can say, just "wow"

really and truly though,
 ellie is adapting to her new role as big sister quite well, actually...
she loves her baby brother and doesn't seem to mind sharing her mommy with him
so far, so good

this next picture is of baby Hudson's first ride in his carseat
coming home from the hospital almost two weeks ago, now...time surely does fly by!

we are all still working on adjusting to the new normal around here
recovery has seemed a bit slow at times, but overall, so much better than my recovery with Ellie.
I have had so much help and support during this time by my dear husband and sweet family...how could I be anything but grateful?

to be quite honest, I find myself teetering between absolute love and embracing this new state of things, to being completely overwhelmed, emotional, and questioning my sanity in deciding to have two munchkins so close together 
{my mama jumped from one to three children when her oldest was just sixteen months old; how she ever did it, and stayed so organized and loving...well, let's just say
she is amazing!  love you, Mom}

I seem to have forgotten how demanding being a mother of a newborn is: and yet, how those little ones do fill a mother's heart to overflowing! 

 the little mr. hudson is happy {well, that could be an exaggeration at times}, healthy, eating constantly, and growing growing growing...he weighed in at 9 lbs. on Tuesdsay afternoon

he has his daddy's big hands, and his daddy's hair, and his daddy's nose...
he is definitely his daddy's son!

well, we have come to the completion of my little update for you all...written between naps, nursing breaks, and ellie's antics  {smile}

Thank you so much for taking the time to share all of this information in your very busy "new normal". I cannot even imagine how busy you are. Ellie is looking so grown up and absolutely adorable! Hudson is so precious! Congratulations and lots of love,

Mr. & Mrs. Morgan
